Scammy travel

The two companies are operated by the same people, DW "DOC WIENER and his girlfriend Carrie Houle. They both have criminal records. One company is called and the other Discount Travel. The website lists an address of 300 West Sahara - this is a lie That address is a casino having nothing to do with these con artists. They operate out of an office at Smoke Ranch in Vegas. They hide their location so angry clients can't find them. The phone number on the website 702-758-**** is Houle's personal phone. She uses a throwaway phone number so she can run away from the law. They instruct their agents to promise the "sucker" that they can stay at any hotel in Vegas for a price of either $299 or $379. In reality, there is not a hotel available or there is a significant upcharge. In any case, the hotel is never a quality hotel but is usually a Day's Inn or some bed bug-infested dump. They promise a bunch of worthless gifts for attending a scammy travel show which lasts 2-3 hours. They say 30-60 minutes on the phone - but that is a lie. If you don't buy the $5000 travel membership you get different gifts than gifts promised or you get nothing. The membership is worthless. Travelocity etc. can offer the same thing without the $5,000 fee. It's wonderful they are a couple but you don't have to finance their love affair. In our opinion, this modern-day Bonnie &;;;;;;;;; Clyde should be avoided at all costs. You would be better off making a small pile of your money and burning it rather than get involved with these scammy love birds.
