Travel Incentive Scams To Watch For

You may have heard of winning a “free vacation”. If you are going to a tradeshow, restaurant, fair or a gym, an executive may come in front of you and ask to fill up a signup form to win a “free vacation”.

If you fill this form, then after few days you may receive a phone call, postcard, email, unsolicited fax or a letter telling you that you have won a “free vacation”. Through initial communication, they tell that the vacation is free but the fact is that the vacation is not at all free and is actually more costly then other paid packages.

The vacation may be useless for you. The vacation may also be associated with lengthy time consuming sales presentation or in some cases the package may also be associated with some hidden fees. Their main aim is either to do fraud or call you anyway to join their sales presentation.

Remember, if you are told that you are offered a free vacation then this commitment has some hidden meaning in it. The word “Offer” comes in this commitment and if you see this word then understand that it is clue to some hidden charges.

If you have attended the sales presentation and the matter reaches payment, then the sales executive may ask credit card number from you to bill you for the package.

Before paying, get assured that the executive is from the company only and your money reaches to the right account. After the payment, you will receive the package details which may only include the instructions for making reservation requests. In some cases, your request may include another fee.

After this, you may be asked to pay the upgrade costs for the actual destinations, dates or accommodations. The matter does not end here and you may be asked to pay for the service, hotel taxes or port charges.
