cheats - fake message by vacation international sales people

Dear Friends,
Recently their sales people have started writing satisfied messages in complaints board website, think of it "Why so many good messages are written within 2 weeks time & that too by same people". I repeat, I am not a competitor. I am just an innocent victim lost my money 19000+ from these cheaters.

They dont need a competitor to spoil their name, its already published in gulf news that they are cheating people. Refer Gulf news link
http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/uae/complaints/time-share-scam-targets-gullible-customers-1.1022057

Most importantly dubai court has given a judgement to return money to victims, now they are re appealing 4th time. They were even threatening the customer to withdraw the case from dubai court. All I've mentioned is true from the bottom of my heart.

    Dear Public
    Yesterday I got a call from one of the victim, he says " I signed contract with them on 2010, also paid all installments of 28K+ & still now didn't get rent out money from that interval website". While he is not able to sell his timeshare property as well, over and above he has to pay yearly maintenance charges. THIS IS THE PROBLEM (I gave you live example)
    I can list out all fake promises:
    1. Vacation international will rent minimum 4-6 weeks from the customer, with a comission for them. (Actual case is "they dont rent for us at all")
    2.Customers can withdraw the money anytime through ADCB Bank (Lie)
    3.They say you can get rent out offer of 2000 to 3000 $ for double romm 6 occupancy (Actual case is "You will not get any offer at all")
    4.Their customer service staffs are very very inefficient, not available all time, they say will call u back (but never).

    Ultimately, If you invest in some property there should be some benefit out of it. In presentation they say you can make good money by renting weeks. Otherwise you can sell property at good appreciation. NOTHING HAPPENS - ALL ARE LIES - CHEATERS
    Whatever these cheaters promise in the presentation is a total lie, the above case is the proof. These cheaters play with "trust", for which only god can punish them.

    @ AFREED - I doubt your a manager in vacation international.

    If your a frequent traveller (well enough to spend money lavishly) it may benefit you, otherwise its simply waste of time & money. Renting weeks will not work / benefit an individual, until unless your full time is dedicated in renting online (which I've experienced - very very tough). My advice better close it as early as possible.

vacation international review complaints cases

This review is created to make public aware about timeshare scam by vacation international, operating in Dubai. Also to help lot more innocent victims to retreive money from these cheaters.

About Vacation International Frauds,
Dear all,
If you’re seeing this message means you must be a victim of this company. They are full of lies right from the beginning, all promises were fake. They are professional in cheating business, they know how to bait the hook by playing around the UAE law. Even Dubai Economics Department accepts they are cheating (refer gulf news article link), DED simply says "only higher authorities can take action against them". Still if you go to court, you may have to spend 5000+ Dhs to conduct the case which is not possible for a common expat. Some people manage to conduc
t case in Dubai court, and get favorable judgment (which confirms they are cheaters). They even threaten you to drop the case, this means they are not only cheaters but also criminals.

Those who've made contract with these cheaters, please read through the below points (actions to follow) to retrieve your money back.
This is applicable only within 10 days of contract signing, after that no way (except court)

1. Do not communicate with vacation cheaters at all.
2. Go directly to Dubai Economic Department (Ahlan Dubai) near clock tower round about.
3.Take all your contract papers, receipt documents & submit the complaint by filling the form given by them.
4.Initially DED may resist to accept your complaint, don’t leave them stay strong on your point (tell them I want to meet higher authority, if you don’t take my case).
5.After filing complaint, don’t ever ever listen to vacation cheaters. They will try to give you more offers to make you take back the complaint.
6.If you listen to them, that’s it they will fool you again.

Already so many cases are going in Dubai court, even court has ordered them to refund the money to some victims. Now some of the recent victims are going to file a group case against these cheaters, those who are willing can join.

As usual I am not a competitor of vacation cheaters, am also an innocent victim trying to retrieve my money back.

All I’ve mentioned is true, so many hundreds of people have lost their money (refer gulf news article).

Resolved fraud

Vacation International Dubai have cheated us and many are being cheated by this company. We need to work as a team and close this company down. They need to return the hard-earned money of all those being cheated. The stalls put up in lamcy and other shopping centers need to be closed. I have lost 17000 and have been fighting for a year but no use.

cheaters under time share shade : نصب واحتيال تحت مسمى السياحة والسفر.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الموضوع: نصب واحتيال تحت مسمى السياحة والسفر.
لمن يهمه الامر:
تحية طيبه وبعد,
2011 وبينما نحن نتسوق في السوق الصيني-دبي، استدرجنا احد المندوبين من باب احد /5/ في تاريخ 29
المحلات التجاريه المجاوره للستاند الخاص بشرآة الإجازات الدوليه. لقد تم أخذ اسمي وبعض المعلومات
عني وأخبرنا بانه سيتم الاتصال بنا في حال تم اختيارنا من قبل الشرآه للحصول على جائزه.
في اليوم التالي تم الاتصال بي وحسب لهجة المتصل يمكن القول بانها سيدة إماراتية الجنسيه وتم إخباري
باني حصلت على جائزه آدعايه من شرآتهم وسيكون هناك حفل لتسليم الجائزه وعلينا الحضور في موعد
محدد.
وبالفعل ذهبت أنا وزوجتي في نفس الموعد الى مكتب الشرآه حسب العنوان الموجود على القسيمة
المعطاه من قبل المندوب.
في حال وصولنا تم استقبالنا من قبل مندوبيهم وادخلنا الى قاعه مليئه بعائلات من مختلف الجنسيات. لم يكن
هناك اي مظاهر احتفال او اي مواعيد لبدء الاحتفال المزعم من قبلهم. على العكس تماماً آانت القاعه عاديه
جدا في مظهرها وصوت الموسيقى عالي بحيث لا تستطيع سماع ما يقوله المندوبون الآخرون للعائلات
الاخرى.
بدأ المندوب بعرض فكرة " المشارآة بالوقت" او الذي درج تحت مسمى "التايم شير" علينا وآانت هي
المره الاولى نسمع بتلك الفكره. استطيع ان اقول الان تحديدا ان المندوب آان سعيدا بجهلنا بالموضوع
حسناته ومساؤه لنكون فريسه سهله له. وطيلة فترة العرض الذي استمر معنا اآثر من ثلاث ساعات تطرق
باستنزاف لكل حسنات النظام ولم يتطرق لأي مساوئ قد نواجهها في المستقبل بل على العكس آان جازما
بانه نظام ناجح جدا بدون اي مساوئ وهي فرصة ذهبيه لنا باننا قدمنا اليوم لعرض شرآتهم.
لقد آنت منذ البدايه غير متفق مع المندوب بفكرة "التايم شير" على الاطلاق آوني في مقتبل عمري وفي
مرحلة التاسيس ولست مغرما بالسفر. الا ان المندوب أقنعنا بان الموضوع فرصه ذهبيه لا تعوض
للاستثمار وهذا آان المدخل الوحيد لاقناعنا. وتم اغرائنا بان الاسبوع الواحد في هذا المنتجع يتم تأجيره
٣٠٠٠ الفان- ثلاثة الاف دولار امريكي. وطريقة تأجيره سهلة للغاية عن طريق موقع – بمبلغ ٢٠٠٠
إلكتروني متخصص تتعامل شرآتهم معه, ولم يخبرنا بان هذا الموقع يستوفي رسوم مقابل الاعلان التي
تبين فيما بعد انهاتستوفي ١٩٩ دولار.
لقد آنت بعد آل المحاولات من المندوب بعملية استدراجي لمرحلة الدفع متمسكا بموقف المتردد والمتخوف
من الشرآة ان تكون شرآة نصب، وطلبت مهله يوم او يومان لدراسة الموضوع واذا تأآدت من الفائده
الاستثمارية التي هي الأساس من وراء عملية الشراء أعود للشرآة واثقا من جميع النواحي. الا أنا المندوب
أصر جازما ان هذا عرضا استثنائيا وصالح فقط لذلك اليوم. آما انه اخبرني بان مالك للشرآه هوعبدالمجيد
حسن عبدالرحيم الملا وهو حسب آلامه مالك شرآة طيران الامارات وانه مؤسس شرآة الإجازات الدوليه
منذ عام ١٩٩٦ وانه لا داعي للخوف فنحن شرآة عريقه وناجحه ولولا ذالك لما بقيت آل تلك الأعوام في
سوق السياحه والسفر.
بعد آل تلك المعلومات والأسماء التي نحن آوافدين مطمئنين لمكانتها في الدوله الاماراتيه وان دائرة
السياحه لن تقبل بوجود شرآات نصب في إماره دبي تسيء الى سمعتها طلبنا من المندوب إعطائنا العقود
لقراءتها والتمعن بها. الا ان المندوب أصر بان ما قاله بالحرف موجود بالعقود ولا داعي لكل هذا الشك
وطلب بطاقة الائتمان ليذهب الى المدير المالي ويحضر العقود ليرينا اياها.
تفاجئت بالمدير المالي وإذ هو قد سحب المبلغ المالي من دون ان يريني العقود آأسلوب فرض الواقع. لم
يكن لدي الخبره الكافيه أني قد استطيع الغاء البطاقه بالحال او حتى أدبيا ان لا أوقع على العقد. ولكن آما
أسلفت ثقتي بالدوله التي اسكنها أعطتني نوع من الراحه.
قد استطيع القول أني صعقت عندما اخبرني المدير المالي ان المبلغ المسحوب غير مسترد فايقنت وقتها
أني مرغم لا محاله بالتوقيع على العقد حتى اضمن حقي بالمبلغ الذي دفعته.
وعندما قرأت العقد وجدت آثيرا من بنوده غير متطابقه مع آلام المندوب، من ابرزها ان شرآتهم غير
مسؤوله عن التاجير وان الاستبدال داخل دبي ليس متاحا وان معظم الدول العربيه غير موجوده في هذه
المنظمه، وبعض الدول السياحيه الكبرى غير موجوده ضمن المنظمه الذي غاير آلام مندوبهم الحرفي " اي
مكان في العالم".
والانكى من ذلك ان هديتهم وهي أسبوعان اقامه في شرم الشيخ ملزمه بدفع قيمة الوجبات التي تساوي ٣٠
دولارا للشخص الواحد في اليوم الواحد وهي في عداد دفع التكاليف الكليه اذا تم الرجوع الى اسعار الاقامه
التي لم تتجاوز ال ٥٠ دولار للشخصان مع وجبات الإفطار.
بناء على ما سبق وآما اوضحت لقد آانت عملية البيع غير نزيهه وغير شفافه على الاطلاق وتم استغفالي
واستغلال ثقتي الغير محدوده بعدم وجود شرآات آهذه في الدوله في عملية البيع هذه.
بعد فترة شهر تم الالتقاء بطريق الصدفه بأحد ضحايا هذه الشرآه الذي قد وقع في نفس الفخ وبنفس
الاسلوب والذي بدوره جمعني بثماني أشخاص لهم نفس القصه وعندما تبادلنا الحديث وجدت ان منهم من
اشترى منذ اآتوبر و نوفمبر الماضي. وعلى الرغم من ذلك لم يستلموا عقود عضويتهم بالمنظمه الدوليه
المنظمه لل" التايم شير" وهي " انتيرفال انتيرناشونال". مما سبق استدللت على ان النية في النصب آانت
مبيته عند هذه الشرآه. بحيث ان العميل بعد ان يعلم بحقيقة الامر بعد عملية البيع الغير نزيهه يفقد الأمل في
استرجاع النقود وآون العقود قانونيه وواضحه بان المبلغ المدفوع غير مسترد فيفقد الأمل في استرجاع
نقوده ولا يكمل باقي الدفعات. وبحسب عقودهم أيضاً ان من يتخلف عن الدفع لدفعتين متتاليتين يفسخ عقده
من دون سابق إنذار. وبناء عليه آانت الشرآه قاصدة تاخير الاشتراك بالمنظمة بحيث اذا لم يكمل الزبون
عقده يكون المبلغ المدفوع للشرآه نفسها وهكذا تصبح الاموال من حقهم بطريقه سهله. وهذا ما قد حصل
مع الاشخاص الذين التقيت بهم وهو ما دفعنا الى رفع الشكوى لكم وعدم السكوت والرضى بالامر الواقع
حتى يكون اجراء قانوني رادع لمثل هذه الشرآات.
وعلى سبيل التنويه فان من وقع في مصيدة مثل هذه الشرآات هم آثر ولكن آما أسلفت العقود القانونيه
آانت درعهم الحامي بغض النظر عن اساليبهم في إقناع العملاء هي التي جعلتهم موجودون على ارض
دولة الامارات الشقيقه من غير حساب.
آما وددت ان ارفق بعض المستندات التي وجدتها على الشبكة الالكترونيه من بعض الاخوان السياح العرب
الذين يشكون بمراره ان اول زيارة لهم لهذا البلد العزيز قد انتهت بعملية نصب وآونهم خارج الدوله لم
يستطيعوا تقديم أية شكوى.
فلكم ان تتخيلوا آم من الاشخاص الذين وقعوا في هذا الفخ و آم هي الاموال الطائله التي هي عزيزة على
أصحابها التي قد أتت بكد وتعب ولكنها ذهبت على ايدي أشخاص لا يخافون الله بطريقة نصب قذره.
فإنني وبالنيابة عن الأصدقاء الذين وقعوا معي في هذا الفخ أناشد آل من بيده سلطة في هذه الدولة الحبيبة
ان يجد لنا حلا في وقف هذه الشرآات في التلاعب بأموال الناس.
ودمتم عونا لنا في ديارآم العزيزه.

    Dear Mohmd.

    Thanks for your call and as per our conversation I am glad to meet you on the decided time and venue but before we meet, I would like you to simply reply to each of the following points so that we could broadly agree on the issues for our next meeting. It should be very simple for you to answer as these are the basic attractions of your scheme which are explained on daily basis to hundreds of people. I hope to get your email latest by Thursday evening to continue our discussions.
    1. It was clearly told by Sales managers repeatedly that the main income of Vacation international is from 10% commission on the rental income. It was also specifically told and assured that all my future EMI’s will be covered by the rental income and within one year or maximum two years I will recover my initial cost paid to buy this package. The sales manager had clarified this thing more than 10 times atleast.
    2. This was specifically told that there is no exchange fee if we opt for the international membership with Interval, which is free of cost for first three years and after that I have to pay annual fee of USD 60. They had also explained many other benefits of the membership card like getting 25% to 50% discounts on air tickets etc.
    3. There won’t be any annual maintenance charges with this package.
    4. Every year stay of 1+12 weeks would be absolutely free of cost. We don’t need to pay any kind of additional charges. We had asked many times about this and it was assured that it is all free of cost. What we need to do is only to inform 21days before date of travel or book online.
    Please note that the above questions were repeatedly asked and every time it was assured that the facility or scheme is there.
    We had made the payment against this package entirely based on the presentation and promises made rather than the documents signed in the late night in shady and noisy atmosphere. We were absolutely tired of listening extra-ordinary loud music. We were already getting late and children wanted to leave your office immediately. On the top of it we were not allowed to read any page which I signed because of the comments of the 3-4 person around me that whatever told is true and included there and I will have sufficient time to read it at home. I have not received any document till date except your first email where the contents were quite different. This was told that in case the company does not provide the promised services, one can always go for legal action.
    This is the first sign of good business people to stay on their promises.
    In any case, I have not used any of the services till date neither I have received any document from your side, in case of disagreement, we should mutually cancel this deal.
    Regards,
    Om Gupta

Resolved false commitment & poor customer service

I have paid AED 17950 on 19th April 2011 and signed the contract. They have not given any time to thinks and promised false things as mentioned below:

1. They informed that there are so many places in India under their scheme. We specially ask Goa they told yes and Atlantis in Dubai. But today when visited international interval website both the places are not there. In India only two places are there.
2. They informed that your week will be sold just like that and informed that one person has signed the contract and next day he got money back by selling their week. I have advertise and till today nothing is sold.
3. They informed lot of facilities like food and other amenities will be free but afterwards I come to know that it is not true.
4. They informed signed contract will be received in one month but it was received in two and half month after follow up. ( Evidence available)
5. International membership card should be received in three months but till today I have not received the international card.
6. Nobody is taking phone and forwarding to Mohammad the in-charge. ( It can be tried by anyone)
7. No reply is given for mails send to them for follow up. I have written mail on 23rd July, 31st July, 3rd August and 7th August but nobody replied. Even I have written to their Egypt office customer service also. ( All mail copy can be given)
8. They are replying only when they see any chances for earning money.
9. Today I visited personally when I was unable to contact them on phone. That time also they told that we will reply my mail today but no reply came.

    Dear All,
    I am attaching a letter that i wrote in Arabic for those who are searching for the same scam. hopefully they will reach to this article. But at the end if we can gather as many as we can then our case is not individual and it will be taken into account.
    Please send me a private message with your contacts and email. i'll organize them and make circle to start the plan what to do for them.
    Regards,
    Amer

    تحية طيبه وبعد,
    2011 وبينما نحن نتسوق في السوق الصيني-دبي، استدرجنا احد المندوبين من باب احد /5/ في تاريخ 29
    المحلات التجاريه المجاوره للستاند الخاص بشرآة الإجازات الدوليه. لقد تم أخذ اسمي وبعض المعلومات
    عني وأخبرنا بانه سيتم الاتصال بنا في حال تم اختيارنا من قبل الشرآه للحصول على جائزه.
    في اليوم التالي تم الاتصال بي وحسب لهجة المتصل يمكن القول بانها سيدة إماراتية الجنسيه وتم إخباري
    باني حصلت على جائزه آدعايه من شرآتهم وسيكون هناك حفل لتسليم الجائزه وعلينا الحضور في موعد
    محدد.
    وبالفعل ذهبت أنا وزوجتي في نفس الموعد الى مكتب الشرآه حسب العنوان الموجود على القسيمة
    المعطاه من قبل المندوب.
    في حال وصولنا تم استقبالنا من قبل مندوبيهم وادخلنا الى قاعه مليئه بعائلات من مختلف الجنسيات. لم يكن
    هناك اي مظاهر احتفال او اي مواعيد لبدء الاحتفال المزعم من قبلهم. على العكس تماماً آانت القاعه عاديه
    جدا في مظهرها وصوت الموسيقى عالي بحيث لا تستطيع سماع ما يقوله المندوبون الآخرون للعائلات
    الاخرى.
    بدأ المندوب بعرض فكرة " المشارآة بالوقت" او الذي درج تحت مسمى "التايم شير" علينا وآانت هي
    المره الاولى نسمع بتلك الفكره. استطيع ان اقول الان تحديدا ان المندوب آان سعيدا بجهلنا بالموضوع
    حسناته ومساؤه لنكون فريسه سهله له. وطيلة فترة العرض الذي استمر معنا اآثر من ثلاث ساعات تطرق
    باستنزاف لكل حسنات النظام ولم يتطرق لأي مساوئ قد نواجهها في المستقبل بل على العكس آان جازما
    بانه نظام ناجح جدا بدون اي مساوئ وهي فرصة ذهبيه لنا باننا قدمنا اليوم لعرض شرآتهم.
    لقد آنت منذ البدايه غير متفق مع المندوب بفكرة "التايم شير" على الاطلاق آوني في مقتبل عمري وفي
    مرحلة التاسيس ولست مغرما بالسفر. الا ان المندوب أقنعنا بان الموضوع فرصه ذهبيه لا تعوض
    للاستثمار وهذا آان المدخل الوحيد لاقناعنا. وتم اغرائنا بان الاسبوع الواحد في هذا المنتجع يتم تأجيره
    ٣٠٠٠ الفان- ثلاثة الاف دولار امريكي. وطريقة تأجيره سهلة للغاية عن طريق موقع – بمبلغ ٢٠٠٠
    إلكتروني متخصص تتعامل شرآتهم معه, ولم يخبرنا بان هذا الموقع يستوفي رسوم مقابل الاعلان التي
    تبين فيما بعد انهاتستوفي ١٩٩ دولار.
    لقد آنت بعد آل المحاولات من المندوب بعملية استدراجي لمرحلة الدفع متمسكا بموقف المتردد والمتخوف
    من الشرآة ان تكون شرآة نصب، وطلبت مهله يوم او يومان لدراسة الموضوع واذا تأآدت من الفائده
    الاستثمارية التي هي الأساس من وراء عملية الشراء أعود للشرآة واثقا من جميع النواحي. الا أنا المندوب
    أصر جازما ان هذا عرضا استثنائيا وصالح فقط لذلك اليوم. آما انه اخبرني بان مالك للشرآه هوعبدالمجيد
    حسن عبدالرحيم الملا وهو حسب آلامه مالك شرآة طيران الامارات وانه مؤسس شرآة الإجازات الدوليه
    منذ عام ١٩٩٦ وانه لا داعي للخوف فنحن شرآة عريقه وناجحه ولولا ذالك لما بقيت آل تلك الأعوام في
    سوق السياحه والسفر.
    بعد آل تلك المعلومات والأسماء التي نحن آوافدين مطمئنين لمكانتها في الدوله الاماراتيه وان دائرة
    السياحه لن تقبل بوجود شرآات نصب في إماره دبي تسيء الى سمعتها طلبنا من المندوب إعطائنا العقود
    لقراءتها والتمعن بها. الا ان المندوب أصر بان ما قاله بالحرف موجود بالعقود ولا داعي لكل هذا الشك
    وطلب بطاقة الائتمان ليذهب الى المدير المالي ويحضر العقود ليرينا اياها.
    تفاجئت بالمدير المالي وإذ هو قد سحب المبلغ المالي من دون ان يريني العقود آأسلوب فرض الواقع. لم
    يكن لدي الخبره الكافيه أني قد استطيع الغاء البطاقه بالحال او حتى أدبيا ان لا أوقع على العقد. ولكن آما
    أسلفت ثقتي بالدوله التي اسكنها أعطتني نوع من الراحه.
    قد استطيع القول أني صعقت عندما اخبرني المدير المالي ان المبلغ المسحوب غير مسترد فايقنت وقتها
    أني مرغم لا محاله بالتوقيع على العقد حتى اضمن حقي بالمبلغ الذي دفعته.
    وعندما قرأت العقد وجدت آثيرا من بنوده غير متطابقه مع آلام المندوب، من ابرزها ان شرآتهم غير
    مسؤوله عن التاجير وان الاستبدال داخل دبي ليس متاحا وان معظم الدول العربيه غير موجوده في هذه
    المنظمه، وبعض الدول السياحيه الكبرى غير موجوده ضمن المنظمه الذي غاير آلام مندوبهم الحرفي " اي
    مكان في العالم".
    والانكى من ذلك ان هديتهم وهي أسبوعان اقامه في شرم الشيخ ملزمه بدفع قيمة الوجبات التي تساوي ٣٠
    دولارا للشخص الواحد في اليوم الواحد وهي في عداد دفع التكاليف الكليه اذا تم الرجوع الى اسعار الاقامه
    التي لم تتجاوز ال ٥٠ دولار للشخصان مع وجبات الإفطار.
    بناء على ما سبق وآما اوضحت لقد آانت عملية البيع غير نزيهه وغير شفافه على الاطلاق وتم استغفالي
    واستغلال ثقتي الغير محدوده بعدم وجود شرآات آهذه في الدوله في عملية البيع هذه.
    بعد فترة شهر تم الالتقاء بطريق الصدفه بأحد ضحايا هذه الشرآه الذي قد وقع في نفس الفخ وبنفس
    الاسلوب والذي بدوره جمعني بثماني أشخاص لهم نفس القصه وعندما تبادلنا الحديث وجدت ان منهم من
    اشترى منذ اآتوبر و نوفمبر الماضي. وعلى الرغم من ذلك لم يستلموا عقود عضويتهم بالمنظمه الدوليه
    المنظمه لل" التايم شير" وهي " انتيرفال انتيرناشونال". مما سبق استدللت على ان النية في النصب آانت
    مبيته عند هذه الشرآه. بحيث ان العميل بعد ان يعلم بحقيقة الامر بعد عملية البيع الغير نزيهه يفقد الأمل في
    استرجاع النقود وآون العقود قانونيه وواضحه بان المبلغ المدفوع غير مسترد فيفقد الأمل في استرجاع
    نقوده ولا يكمل باقي الدفعات. وبحسب عقودهم أيضاً ان من يتخلف عن الدفع لدفعتين متتاليتين يفسخ عقده
    من دون سابق إنذار. وبناء عليه آانت الشرآه قاصدة تاخير الاشتراك بالمنظمة بحيث اذا لم يكمل الزبون
    عقده يكون المبلغ المدفوع للشرآه نفسها وهكذا تصبح الاموال من حقهم بطريقه سهله. وهذا ما قد حصل
    مع الاشخاص الذين التقيت بهم وهو ما دفعنا الى رفع الشكوى لكم وعدم السكوت والرضى بالامر الواقع
    حتى يكون اجراء قانوني رادع لمثل هذه الشرآات.
    وعلى سبيل التنويه فان من وقع في مصيدة مثل هذه الشرآات هم آثر ولكن آما أسلفت العقود القانونيه
    آانت درعهم الحامي بغض النظر عن اساليبهم في إقناع العملاء هي التي جعلتهم موجودون على ارض
    دولة الامارات الشقيقه من غير حساب.
    آما وددت ان ارفق بعض المستندات التي وجدتها على الشبكة الالكترونيه من بعض الاخوان السياح العرب
    الذين يشكون بمراره ان اول زيارة لهم لهذا البلد العزيز قد انتهت بعملية نصب وآونهم خارج الدوله لم
    يستطيعوا تقديم أية شكوى.
    فلكم ان تتخيلوا آم من الاشخاص الذين وقعوا في هذا الفخ و آم هي الاموال الطائله التي هي عزيزة على
    أصحابها التي قد أتت بكد وتعب ولكنها ذهبت على ايدي أشخاص لا يخافون الله بطريقة نصب قذره.
    فإنني وبالنيابة عن الأصدقاء الذين وقعوا معي في هذا الفخ أناشد آل من بيده سلطة في هذه الدولة الحبيبة
    ان يجد لنا حلا في وقف هذه الشرآات في التلاعب بأموال الناس.
    ودمتم عونا لنا في ديارآم العزيزه.

    Hello,
    I realiaze now that i have just been duped by this company. I just paid 17, 950AED representing 50% part payment on 4th January, 2012 having been on vacation in Dubai.
    All promises made by the company is unfortunately false. I am very furious with myself for falling into this trap. And they know what they are doing when they tell you to come with your family. In this instance, it was my wife that got us to sign ths contract, because she does a lot of travelling ans she would benefit from this investment.
    I would not longer subscribe payment to his scheme. It is a complete fraud.
    Is it possible to collect back this money that translate to over $4, 000? I am open to any suggestion or advice.

    Dear Friends,
    Recently their sales people have started writing satisfied messages in complaints board website, think of it "Why so many good messages are written within 2 weeks time & that too by same people". I repeat, I am not a competitor. I am just an innocent victim lost my money 19000+ from these cheaters.

    They dont need a competitor to spoil their name, its already published in gulf news that they are cheating people. Refer Gulf news link

wronged me

On September 26, 2009 I attended the San Gennaro Feast in Las Vegas. As I walked through the entrance I was approached and enticed to come to a seminar for vacation properties. I was told that this was not a timeshare opportunity and that if I attended then I would be awarded “gifts” for my time. I was given the option of several of these “gifts”. $500 gas cards, a San Diego Vacation, trip for 2 to Florida were my options. I eagerly took the $500 gas card option, to which that also made me qualify for another “gift” which I was not expecting. I went to the seminar on October 3rd and indeed it turned out to be a timeshare brief. I patiently listened to the 90 minute presentation and after being hit on by the representative there and rudely being discarded because 1. I did not qualify based on my age (which they knew from the beginning) and 2. I was not able to make the down payment as I am a single parent with only one income. But at the end I was assured that in 7 days I would get my packet with my “gifts”. I received a packet on October 15th that stated that I needed to send a $4.95 processing fee and the packet to PTS travel which I did on October 28th. I received the brochures for the vacations in November with no mention of the gas card. I waited about 2 weeks to see if the mail was slow and if the gas card would come separate and it did not. In early December I called and talked with someone at PTS travel who said that the gas card promotion had been cancelled. At this point I was extremely upset; all I had wanted from the beginning was the gas card not the vacations. I called back about a week later to find out just when this promotion no longer existed and they told me that it had been cancelled in October. So as you can see I am a little irritated that no one ever contacted me to tell me before I went to the seminar to tell me that the “gift” I had really wanted no longer existed. If I had known this I wouldn’t have gone and wasted not only my time but VI’s time either. I am requesting reimbursement for thegas card and the 4.95 processing fee for an item that I never received. I have attached a copy of the PTS brochure that I received from VI and my gas receipts totaling $525.71 (I know that only $500 is reimbursable). I hope that you will in good faith take good care of someone who has actually referred many customers to the VI property as I thought it was a good investment, just not for a single parent such as myself. I am sending this memo to PTS and VI – I don’t care which one cuts me a check as long as it gets done. Thank you for your time. I am allowing 30 days from the date of notification for a response.

Resolved misrepresentation/fraud

On April 04, 2008, My husband and I attend a membership seminar, paid our membership of $3998.00 in full by credit card. To date we have not been able to schedule any travel either online or been able to reach anyone with the company. Now I have learned that they have filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy.

What recourse do we have for refunding the money we have paid?

Resolved misleading promises and poor service

Received a post card thinking it was from Delta Airlines. Went to seminar, and bought a travel membership Sept. 14, 2007. Tried to use service Sept. 27, 2007. Didn't get any communication until Oct. 3, 2007.

Since we had trouble right off the bat, we asked for our money back. But, we had been told at signup not to try to use membership until seven days had passed, it took that long to set up the membership.

We again tried to use the services, and again broken promises. Finally I was told by the supervisor she didn't have time for me anymore. This was after I had spent $3, 596.00 with them.

Giving the benfit of the doubt, tried to use seervice again in October. Again, broken promises. And long time before responding.

Tried to use seervice again in December. I started communication Dec. 17, 2007. Finally got response Jan. 7, 2008, only after threats to South Carolina Government agencies. All of this is documented in e-mails. Every bit of this is backed by e-mails.

At this point, we just want our money back. There is no way we would attempt to schedule a vacation using VIP. They respond when they feel like it, and then its broken promises.
