Beachcomber travel complaint

The Beachcombers representatives are rather deceptive. When they recruited us to attend the presentation, they promised 2 "free" airplane tickets with no blackout dates & $300 in gas vouchers. What a hoax. Everything we were told by the phone representative was untrue. The representatives at the meeting could not answer any questions about the free tickets or gas vouchers. They "didn't have that information". Not much of a surprise when we got home & read the certificate they gave us after listening to the complete presentation, the airplane tickets were not free nor could they be redeemed with a 30 notice and had blackout dates. The tickets were $65 per person with 60 notice of travel date. plus no guarantee of receiving the selected travel date. It could be any of 3 dates in a 90 day period & you are only notified of the date 14 days before traveling. The Free $300 gas voucher turned out to be a gas station promotion where you have to spend $100 a month at a specific gas station in order to be given a $25 gift card for that station. To redeem the $300 gas voucher would entail 12 months of mailing gas receipts to get a $25 gift card each month. The sales presentation consisted of Jerry giving a hard sales pitch in a crummy conference room. The company had no brochures or printed info. The fabulous travel deal had to be purchased that night at the time of the presentation for $8000 plus dollars. If you wanted to go home & think about it or research the company you could not get that plan you had to go with the alternate travel plan which did not have even 1/2 as much as the other for the same $8000 plus dollars. Needless to say, we didn't give them any money. They seemed a little to slippery. -- a group of unknown Joe Blows working out of a rented office wanting $8000 for a "one time opportunity"?? My advice is to avoid these people like the plague.
