Star Vacation Club / This company is a fraud!
It took me awhile to find this website, but I can detail the scam for you. You get a phone call telling you you have been awarded a prize, You can win an Escalade or 4 other things, but definitely get a prize. You have to call an 800-number to get details. I asked point blank "Do I have to sit for a presentation?" and was told emphatically "Oh, NO!" Once you get into the establishment (This one at 1415 W Guadalupe in Mesa, AZ) you sit in on a corny presentation with many others, then have a one-on-one with an associate who does his best to sign you up. There must be suckers roaming the world or these things wouldn't worth. I went just to see if it was the scam I thought it was. When he realized there was no way we were gointg to sign up, he gave us the scratch-off ticket and nobody in the room won the Escalade. I presume we all got the free vacation. The "FREE" vacation I chose wasn't free by any means: the $50 PER PERSON ticketing service fee AND hotel and airline taxes of approx $120 - $280 at confirmation (this is their verbage). The restrictions are incredible: must travel on a Tue or Wed, 3 preferred dates 60 days in advance for each, and automated reservation system. You'll never talk to a warm body. To those who comment that these complaints are about the gift and not Star Vacation: why would anybody sign up for this type of a service that is initially introduced as an award prize that we filled out some card for a long time ago (BIG LIE HERE) by a phone call to a number on the DO NOT CALL registry, be forced to sit for a presentation when told there would be no presentation to sit for, be given prize of a FREE vacation that is not free at all, at a company that is difficult to find listed anywhere? Doesn't sound like it would be a very good risk to me at all !!! If you decide to get sucked into this just for the prize--like I did--and out of sheer curiosity, take my advice if you want a truly free prize. DO NOT TAKE any "free: vacations. There's something like a free DVD player. It'll be a piece of junk, but the chance of it's being free is greater than anything else offered... Caveat Emptor. There's NO FREE LUNCH in this lifetime...
