CruiseMates Travel Scam Article
 
I'm sure we have all been contacted by telephone, through the mail, or by fax with offers of a free cruise. Our better judgement however is tested by the word Cruise and Free.

Take a minute to read Paul Motter's new article posted on the CruiseMate's home page regarding his encounter with a scammer. I love the way he let the shark try and set the hook!

I think it’s a great article. It’s sad to think about how many people get scammed by these low life companies. They don’t even get what was promised and they would have saved time and money just buying the cruise or vacations on their own. There should be tougher laws against theses predatory operations.

I really liked it too, and is very helpful for those who might one day be faced with this kind of thing.

Good job Paul.

When they call me I always say "No". They scream you don't want a free vacation? I say not from you and hand up.

I get very few repeat calls after replying to their questions with a boat air horn :twisted: . Great article Paul!
