Global Discovery Vacations (GDV) - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
Phone Scam

This is a Complaint / Review about Global Discovery Vacations (GDV).

I just got a call from someone at the number (760)705-8888. (In case you don’t know, that’s the number that comes up on your phone if called by someone using a gmail phone number.) I could barely understand them and they were saying that I won a free prize for entering a contest around the holidays. It was suspect, but I figured I would see why they were REALLY calling me. I’m smart enough not to give them any information, so I played along for a minute to figure out the truth.

They said I won either $5,000, a big screen tv, or a mystery prize. After grilling the person on the other line, it ends up they were from Global Discovery Vacations trying to scam me into buying something from there. They said I had to visit the closest Global Discovery Vacations location with my husband to "claim my prize." They also told me I wasn't allowed to come alone. If that doesn’t throw up a red flag, I don’t know what does.

I told them they were a scam and the caller got mad at me. I hung up. As someone who has worked in sales for many years, I know that any company who uses this kind of a sales tactic isn't credible and should be avoided at all costs. Do not give any personal information or credit card numbers to these people. BE CAREFUL!
