Travelling Soon? Be Aware of these Free Holiday Voucher Scams
Are you planning to travel sometime soon for your business trip or for family vacations? Be aware of these free holiday voucher scams flourishing in India and across the globe.
Thanks to people like Mr. Kumar who came forward to share the details such scam so that people are well aware and be careful while travelling. Not only he but there are hundreds and thousands of people who have gone through similar incidents. Please read this information and do not fall for these free holiday voucher scams.
By this piece of complaint I want to warn unsuspected travelers who waste their precious holiday time and are being cheated by this so called cheat company called Karma Royal Group.
The modus operandi is that travelers moving around Goa on Holidays are approached by their agents (whom they them-self call kidnapper) giving lure of prize vouchers containing false promises on free stay, ipod, restaurant vouchers, boating trips etc. They convince the unsuspected travelers that they are just promoting their resorts and want to publicize the same by providing free stays etc. and would like to take them to show the resort .
Once the traveler who has come to Goa on holiday by spending money on travel and hotels etc. falls into their trap of free stay and other instant prizes to be given and agrees to come along with them, he is picked by the kidnapper and taken to their resort.
Once you are there, without any consideration their actors just start playing drama introducing different persons and you are made to sit with your entire family for listening their non-stop commentary on resorts, time share plans, how you are wasting your life without joining them and other type of brain washing exercises. After 2-3 hours of non stop commentaries by different different persons they start pressurizing you to agree to take their membership which costs 3-4 lakhs.
The real colors appear when you refuse to take that bullshit and asks for the prizes promised. Than comes some bouncer type persons in picture who would inform you that you are not entitled for any of the instant prizes and you should just take a voucher, which you obviously would not be able to use and leave.
If you demand your promised prize they immediately start misbehaving. By the time you learn your mistake you had already lost your one day for which you had paid money to your hotel and you had come so far away from your home to enjoy holidays.
Despite being aware of such cheats I myself became their victim when they assured me that I should just listen to their resort promotion for one hour and I would be provided free stay immediately after that, than and there.
But when I demanded the assured prize I was told restaurant is closed, boat trip timings are over, free stay only with 2 months advance booking and like that. That bugger became so rude and abusive when I started protesting.
So beware of Karma Royal Group and its fraudsters moving around Goa.
You can imagine what kind of service this CHEAT KARMA ROYAL GROUP might be providing to its members.
Share this with your friends and family and make them aware so that they are saved by such scams.
