Star Vacations — Lucky escape
This was a complete waste of our time.
We, like others, were told we had won a prize - one of four.
A Lincoln/45K cash, a vacation, $2500 cash or a 32 inch tv - guaranteed to win one of these prizes.
So, we went. Flags were raised at the credit card/checkbook requirement at registration...
The presentation was okay, but after that was over - and we were sent into a room with a salesman it was ridiculous. Wore a hawaiian shirt and was incredibly rude. Name was John.
When I asked genuine questions about the promotion, deal etc and company, etc - he was condescending and mocking.See Top 10 Worst Companies in Gilbert, AZ
When someone else left without buying into the scheme, he made a gesture suggesting she was mentally incapacitated.
When I said it wasn't something we were even considering - he said, well since it is the last day in May, I can offer the same deal to you at $3995 (originally $7495). Another red flag. Really? You're that desperate to get money from me?
When I said I had not researched the company, and was not necessarily comfortable with handing over money to something I had not researched, we were asked to leave and that he didn't need our $10K (so it's 10k now?), that we were minor players and not worth his time.
I then went home and reseached the company. Yeah. It's a scam. No wonder he was so defensive.
