RUN!! Never heard of them, but if you got a cold call from them, I'd be VERY suspect. If they say they are with the BBB, but the BBB doesn't know anything about them RUN.

If they call you again, HANG UP!

So do you think they can sell cruises below cost? The more they sell the more they lose?
It's a SCAM.

I just did a google and when I saw this. ..." Due to the limited number of packages available during each promotion, please call your sales representative."

A red flag went up...That old adage, if it sounds to good to be true....yada yada yada..that's what this is..

If somebody called you out of the blue and offered to sell you a $600 iPad for $99, would you give them your checking account number? You would find it unbelievable, wouldn't you? So why would anybody believe they are doing the same thing with cruises?

As a general rule of life, I DO NOT give my credit card number, my bank account number, or ANY other personal information to somebody who calls, emails, or writes me cold. PERIOD.

However, I am flying to Nigeria with a suitcase containing $10,000 in small bills to pay the lawyer his fee so I can collect the US$5,000,000 (Five millon) from that secret bank account ...

You'd better hurry Mike. I left yesterday with my $10,000! :mad:
