Signature. escapes is the same company as legacy destinations , TravelMDU sent me an invitation to a presentation and offered free vacation (a cruise for 8 days/7 nights) Or round trip tickets for two people on American islands to attend. I attended and sat through a 90 minute presentation Travel club of shady salespeople one who smelled so bad from booze my wife almost got sick. They claim to model themselves after SAMs Club and COSTCO and offer deep discounts on vacations to VIP Membership for fees that range from $5000 to $8, 000. as they drop there prices as many times as we said no. The DECEPTION is the actual vacation prices offered on their web site (that you can only access after you are a member) is the same or even higher priced than you get form searching the internet. In most cases you have to provide an agent with information to get a quote and you have to wait at least a day (up to 3 days)for a quote. They gave me the impression I would be able to get all the information I need to book a Cruise online. This is a misrepresentation of what they offered at the presentation. They give you the impression they purchase vacation packages for their members and offer them at cost. They claimed to make money on membership fee only. But it appears they are basically a second rate travel agency. If you are looking at this message you were either invited to attend a travel club presentation (don’t go, it’s a scam), You have attended and did not buy (good for you, you are smarter than me), or you attended and joined (welcome to the club – this message is for you) The companies signature Escapes ,Legacy Destinations. Former. Name There are many more nationwide, it’s like a franchisee of traveling con Artist . These companies Signature. escapes claim to sell family dream vacations; you would think they have families so they would be honest people. Instead they are predators that prey on middleclass families and retired couples for the little money they have. If you have been scammed you should ASAP: 1. Cancel your credit card (so they cannot charge your account for a membership fee) 2. Dispute the charge on your credit card (what happen to you was Thief by Deception) 3. Report them to the, BBB, consumer reports. And a tourney general and local news . 4. Contact the Consumer Affairs Director in your state 5. Send a cancelation letter to them by certified mail 6. If you were contacted by mail, contact the post office to report mail fraud Here is a fox news report on the scam (you may recognize some of the people in this clip): ht TAKE ACTION: I am creating a database of people that were scammed and collecting some statistics that we can show police and the credit card companies in case we have problems disputing our claims.
