People like this are spread through out the world. We were cheated by a company by the name Lander Management and their Modus Operandi was exactly the same as Royal. Unfortunately we fell for their false promises and coughed up Rs.20000, which, at the time of the presentation was supposedly refundable. I just want to share this with all those who have been invited to a presentation by Lander Management. They will lure you to a presentation by promising a free holiday stay and claim they got your details from a form you had filled at their booth in an exhibition.

Beware!

    Dear All
    I too got carried away by the modus operandi. I became a member in 2007 but i have yet to go on vacation. The free holidays was never finalised, every time the sales manager used to evade. I am asked to pay annual management charges by them, even though i have not availed any holiday. I did not want to pay but eventually have paid.

    Dear All,
    In 2008, i was cheated by this Lander management. They didn't even give time to think and forced to take this membership saying te offer is only for today and so on. I got this membership for 80, 000. I have never used this membership. and now they are asking me to pay 24, 000 as annual maintenance for 3years. I would request all you guys to join together and we can file a case against this Lander management.

    RCI is not so worth, But this will be useful only when u go holiday frequently, like thrice a year ... I have tried once using RCI to banglore they gave me Elite room and it is good, and one time i was unplanned and needed to goto to kotayyam, they told i need to book before 1 month, i asked hime then ehat is the use of this RCI ???
    Also Now lander is no more think so they ve changed in to aj-groups

    Hi, Been a fool to have not gone through this board before... coughed up 30K for a 5 year deal. Got a lukewarm assistance during the booking stage - they sent me a list of 3 resorts in Munnar and asked me to select.

    Booked a resort in Munnar through them after googling the 3 choices of resorts they had given me. When I landed there with family and 3 brats found the resort to be totally different from what Kamal C. Suganraj (Executive - Owners Relations) promised. The rooms were TINY, hardly about 6x8 and absolutely no facilities at all. I stromed out of there and am trying to reach Kamal since yesterday, but no reply.

    If there is still no reply today thought of taking legal action against them. Any action you want to initiate against them I'm in. I'm reachable at [email protected]

    I became a member of this lander management by sep-2008 and was initially scared by seeing all the above comments.
    Then I approached 'lander' for booking a resort in ooty and they have booked as promised by them.
    The accomodation, room service, quality of food was good, I appreciate the good attitude of the service, I enjoyed our holiday and thanking 'lander managment' for the satisfying service provided to me.

One lady and two more people have assured us of sure accomodation throughout India but never have they booked a single one. People who read this kindly dont be so gullible as we were.

    The guys are right! About LANDER MANAGEMENT LTD in chennai, india.

    I got the call for a presentation and informed by the telecaller that i have got free stay by lucky draw coupon that i dropped in Anjappar. (surprised i never been to anjappar for past four years). But I been to Pizza corner, and dropped the coupon infact.

    I thought it was my luck, i been to the presentation: took 3.45hours, they washed my mind and rushed me to pay some downpayment for the offer to become member.

    I told them i havn't come with that kind preparation to pay the deposit, but my wife was with me, she was in a position to pay me the money.

    But i told her clearly that i can not take decision in two and half hours. I have to take decision properly.

    At last we refused to pay the holding deposit, but i gave them option that you can pick it up from me on monday(note i been there on thursday 21/08/2007).

    The Senior Manager refused to pick it from me on Monday.

    And i told them i am not interested. and ofcourse there is no Company Profile, no website address etc.

    Finally, we were waiting for the lucky voucher. But they just gave a letter stating that they will send the voucher. (Feel on my heart was, it will not come).

    Thank God i havn't paid any paise to them. God Saved me.

    SO BEWARE OF THESE KIND DODGY COMPANIES.

    We too got cheated in the same way last year by Lander Management. Their modus operandi:

    They just lure you to take their holiday plans for a discount amount of Rs.20000/- . They select customers through a lucky dip conducted at Chennai's famous shopping outlets like Globus etc.

    After the agreement is signed, and you approach them to go on a holiday, they get 50% of the lodging expense from you and say that they have paid the full money to the hotel/resort. Finally when you reach the resort you only hear that the balance 50% is not paid by them and you end up paying the complete expenses for your trip. This is how they operate. They are not registered with RCI and they are the biggest
    frauds.

    Owner - Mr.Chandrasekar - contact no.. (not known)
    Contact person: Deepak Shah: Sales Manager - [protected]

    We had a very bad experience going for a vacation to Yercaud and after repeated visits to their office and heated arguments with them for about a months time after our return back, we got back the money we paid at the hotel. If you have any experience with them, please comment.

    Hi All,

    I bought 7 day vacation plan from Lander Management Pvt Limited Chennai last year with the promise that there would be no exchange fees and free boarding will be provided.

    The problem started last month when I thought of executing my vacation plan. I kept calling Lander guys everyday to get my vacation confirmed. After repeated calls for a week, I was told that my vacation date is confirmed and I booked my train tickets.

    Till then I didn't receive any confirmation e-mail or post. So I kept enquiring for few days. Suddenly few days back they told me to pay extra Rs. 2250 to get my plan confirmed.

    Don't know from where this extra fee came out. They told this one is exchange fees. Earlier at the time of purchase, I clearly got it confirmed that there is no exchange fee for Fort Chanwa Luni resort if time share purchased through Lander.

    As I was eagerly waiting for the vacation, I made up my mind and agreed to pay Rs.2250 as exchange fee.

    Two days passed. Then the guy called Deepak - Manager called me and told that I have to pay maintenance fee and utility charges and the total to be paid is Rs. 6500.

    I got irritated and told him there is no such thing agreed upon and not in purchase document as well. Then he (Deepak)took a twist and started calling it as exchange fee of Rs. 6500.

    It triggered my anger and I told him to cancel my vacation plan and asked for re-fund. But he refused it. Then I told him to face legal action. At this point he started blaming me that I am not interested in vacation, not paying exchange fees, wasting his precious time, bla, bla, bla (funny - I paid them and making calls for 15days - no result).

    That evening he called me and told me that he came with a better option and I have to pay only Rs.3950 to have vacation. Again I don't know what this fee is for. But vacation interest made me to agree. (So Rs. 3950 extra. Total Rs. 13000 approx)

    Today I just browsed for Lander and hit this site. After seeing your responses I was taken aback and feared not to mess up after landing Rajasthan.

    So I called Deepak to ensure other things promised will be taken care - Pick and drop from Railway station, boarding, site seeing.
    He told me that my fee is for accomadation alone and nothing else - boarding, site seeing. He even started joking who will give all these for 13K.

    I am totally irritated and cheated by Lander and their promises. I am not willing to 13K + travel charges for just staying in a resort at Rajasthan.

    So, I am cancelling my tickets and going for legal action against Lander Management Pvt Limited. Chennai.

    If you guys feel that you are cheated, please join me atleast as witnesses in my legal action plan. Thanks.

    You can contact me at: [protected] / 044-[protected].

    Let us nail down the cheaters. Thanks.

    Hi All,
    I too got the call from the lady name called Nisha, I was asked to attend the presentation at 3pm saturday, I went and met a guy who wasted my 2 hrs time, , , everything was ###, U knw people they are brilliant, They will explain to us everything clearly and cleaverly, It seems to be very cheap as per that presentation, , Honestly I dont know whether they are cheating or not, , false promise or not, , but onething I came to know that they dont give time to think about it or take the decision, All they need is money, immediate money, they will give u nice presentation untill you say "NO" but they will change their face reaction immediately when we say "NO" I would like to share few things about them

    1, Lady called me and said that MY NAME was selected for free gift, but she asked for MY NAME when I agreed to attend the presentation.

    2, I could not attend the presentation many times due to busy schedule, The lady RE-ARRANGED the timing for me many times till I attend the presentation, but when I asked them to give me two days of time to pay at the end of the presentation, they said they cant even give a day to think about it,

    3, I asked the lady on the phone about the membership fee, She promised me that there wont be any membership fee,

    4, They gave me presentation in a room with some papers and pamplets, nothing else, everthing was theory, but I was asked to pay 4000 immediately, I am wondering, Is there anyone in this world will pay without seeing anything and only with the hearing, , Might be some people who dont know how to spend the money, , let them to be, ,

    5, When the guy finished the presentation, He was so tired and called someother guy to continue the presentation, another guy continued but he was not polite to me when I said NO for the immediate payment,

    Let me come to this point, ,

    How come they think that the people would pay immediately without enquiring about them or about their company,

    1, A good company will not give any false information
    2, A good company will not force the people to pay or enroll immediately
    3, A good company will not impolite to the people when they refused to accept their theory
    4, A good company will not talk to the people only with the papers and pamphlets,

    I dont think the Landers management is truthful one, , They started with some false information so why not they will give more false information to the members, ,

    A good company always speak truth, It does not matter whether its beginning or ending,

    So people you can decide your self, Thank you bye

    While, I see that there are people who are happy with the services of Lander management, there are a lot more who feel frauded. My wife got a call from the same people using the same modus operandi.

    They seem to be not at all transparent—because when I asked where from they got my wife's phone number, she (Swetha) said from a "database" which again was provided by a "senior". This was enough to raise suspicion and I checked it on the internet to land up on this article. I guess they go by the principle of " Caveat emptor—Let the buyer beware!!"

    These kind of shady practices need to be brought into public attention and stern action should be taken against them for using false marketing gimmicks.

    Dear Viewers,

    Thanks to this web site.

    Today, I got a call from Ms. Swetha of "Lander Management Pvt Ltd" from the address # 9, Ashoka Street, Alwarpet. Madras - 600018. Tel: [protected].

    She said, I have been choosen for a FREE holiday package for 3 nights / 4 days to any of the following location, Jodpur / Ooty / Kodai / Yercaud / Munnar and this can be availed with-in one year. They wanted me to come with my wife (she's not available here because of maternity reason) at 6 PM and collect the gift !!! I told her that my wife is not here and she wanted me to send some one (couple only) like Parents / Brothers / Sisters / Friends etc... I was skeptical on them and asked what are other conditions to the free gift !! She replied that there are no conditions. All that we have to do is to come at 6PM as couple and see their 2 hours video presentation and collect the FR(AUD)EE** holiday gift...

    Thanks to Google / This Website / All others who have shared their experience with LANDER (FRAUD) !!
