I just found out last night that my 82 year old father received a phone call from them. I usually check any notices he receives from the bank, but missed the one stating a $398 ACH transaction, which happened in July 2013, bounced. He was charged the $34 Insufficient Funds charge. The $398 transaction later went through. In addition to this dad must have talked to them again and this time they charged $798 to his bank account. Dad says he remembers talking to them, but they talked so fast that he doesn't remember exactly what happened. He also said though that he didn't remember giving them his checking account information. I went to the bank today to see what can be done. The bank is going to work with me through some options. I can't believe that these people at this company would be so low to prey on senior citizen's. How would they like it if it was their parents. The Bible says (paraphrased) "you reap what you sow:
Since you went through this earlier this year, what advice can you give me? Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
The charge of $249 appeared on my checking account,. This charge is unauthorized. I have no desire--nor am I able to participate in any Sweet Dreams vacation. I am calling my bank to pursue a refund for this unauthorized charge.
My 86-year old mother actually sent these "people" a check for $800 for three vacations. She received her info in September 2012 from Fed-Ex from a place in Las Vegas, NV. My sister asked me to look over this this afternoon and it's a joke. She received one piece of paper, one flyer with two vouchers on it that expired in December 2011. If you read the fine print it states you send them more $$ and two separate dates you want to use this voucher and you ARE NOT guaranteed a vacation!!!!!!!!! My question is what was the $800 for. I am pursuing this through the Better Business Bureau in NV as soon as possible. They are taking advantage of senior citizens. My mom is in no condition to go on vacation anywhere.
They are scum and it is to good to be true. They prey on senior citizens.and if necessary take control of your parents checkbook immediately or their funds will be gone.
These same slick punksters tried this crap with my mom and they are rip off artists. They prey on senior citizens who do not know any better and do not let your parents near the checkbooks when these punks call. They are a bleepin joke and they are scam artists.
My wife received a phone call from "Jason Klein" at this number and told her she had filled out a survey on October 20, 2011. My first question is why it took over a year if in fact she did fill out a survey, which she didn't.
He told her she/we could go to Las Vegas, Hawaii, New Orleans, Disneyland or Disney World, just to mention a few locales, and get reduced air fare. If we chose Las Vegas we could get tickets to Celine Dion (not that I would go see her) for FREE! Knowing that tickets for her show START @ $200 apiece that sounds a litte far fetched to me.
Oh and of course he wanted a credit card number to "reserve" our trip and there was a one-time enrollment fee of $823.11 to get a confirmation number. That ain't gonna happen.
By the way, he started the call out with "This is the State of Nevada, World Wise Vacations".
If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
This organization scammed my mother in law big time! They called her and convinced her to buy some sort of vacation package. She is 87 years old and has dementia and is unable to travel at all. They got her credit card number and made charges to it. When I called them they said they had not called her, she called them. There is no possible way she would/could have called them due to her dementia. To say these people are scum does not begin to describe it.
I got a call from this number.
They ask you lame questions in hopes of you responding YES to at least one of them and then they can manipulate the recordings if they need to go to court for that lawsuit you'll be pursuing after they rip you off
This company also scammed $3000 from my 86 year old father. They are SCUM
My 82 year old mom got a call from them and the guy got her talking about a vacation she and my dad planned before he died. Somehow, this guy got her to give her credit card number and she told him not to charge anything until she called back. He wiped out her bank account. Now, my brothers and I are in the process of going after this company legally (or not as the case may be), to get her money back. The company is saying she did not cancel within 3 days, but she was never told she would be charged, so she was never told she had 3 days to cancel. There are 5 of us. Only 3 are going after them so far. When the other 2 find out, all hell will break loose.
A man called and said he was vice-president of operations and was very busy but took time out to call me to award me 4 separate vacations to be used in 3 years. I only needed to send them $698. I said I wouldn't send him any money and he dropped it to $498....more or less saying I was a fool to pass this up. I said I wasn't comfortable sending money to a complete stranger. 'Didn't BBB confirm that we are reputable?', he said. In a way, but a 5-minute conversation with BBB wasn't going to convince me to spend my money. He kept saying how much time do you need, how much time do you need...Finally I said 6 months and he said I was being ridiculous and hung up. He was rude and kept harassing me.
Yesterday I received a call from Worldwise vacations informing me that it was my lucky day. I was entitled to three vacations. One to Waikki, Hawaii for six days and five nights, the next was for a cruise of my choice ,seven days and five nights. The last trip was a three day and two night stay in Las Vegas. I spoke to one guy and asked him his name, he responded Chris. I was then talking to another guy who started the same way by saying aren't you exicted to have three vacations for just $ 398 dollars? OK
all I need is your check number and bank info. That is when I replied what makes you think I have an extra $398 dollars available? He responded you mean to say you don't have extrra in your checking for an emergency?
I responded right now i am unemployed. Next i responded this conversation is over and hung up the phone. the first guy seemed nice, but the second guy seemed too pushy for me.
My mother is very close to purchasing what sounds to be like a really great deal, but I'm always skepticle about these things. I'm just wondering if you're mom got her refund?
This is World Wise Vacations and Tours in Las Vegas, NV (www.worldwisevacations.com). They called my 83-yr old mom and talked her into buying 5 vacation pkgs for a total of $777, knowing that my dad uses a walker and can barely get around. We're in the process of getting a refund, but they denied that they were the ones that called my mom (they said they don't make solicitation calls) and said that my mom called them. This entry here from Adriana confirms that they do, indeed, make solicitation calls! They belong to the BBB, but they still sound shady to me!
