Cancun Travel Unlimited SCAM!!!

I just received a call from +8888763708 at 9 PM. They claimed to be a company called Cancun Travel Unlimited. I spoke with a Jasper Lopez who introduced himself as the president of the said company. He gave out his agent reference number as 652475L85. 

They told me that they got my number from my cousin from Saskatoon and that they currently had a 75% discount on their travel package for Cancun, Mexico for 5 days and an additional 4 days to Orlando, Florida. I will be staying at a 5 star hotel and the package has no black outs and is good until 2014. The package is good for 2 adults and 2 children only for the low price of US$ 498.

I almost gave out my credit card number if it weren't for the thought that came into my mind: "If it's too good to be true, then it's a scam!" My gut feeling was right because as soon as I said I'll think about it he told me that he can't give me the offer again and other lame excuses he made up. I firmly said that I think I'll just pass on the offer and the bastard just hung up on me with an annoyed tone. 

What the hell?! I checked out the website he gave me, www.sunsethotels.net, and it had SCAM, FAKE, FRAUD, SWINDLE written all over it. I then did a little snooping on the phone number that they used to call me and guess what I found? People who were stupid enough to trust these swindlers because they were "fellow Filipinos": 800notes, whocallsme, and  ripoffreport 

Turns out that one lady gave out her credit card for a US$100 vacation package and she was charged $500! She now is currently dealing with her credit card company to get her money back.

Fortunately there are people who like me will NEVER give out their credit card number online: nakedknitgirl 

Seriously! I was on the CRTC Do Not Call List and I've already filed a complaint against this company. I'm not sure if the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission has jurisdiction over a Philippine based company but this issue should be resolved soon.

This incident only made me more cautious when dealing with Filipinos. They try to draw you in with small talk to gain your trust and then steal your money when you turn your back. Shame on you Cancun Travel Unlimited and the lowlifes who make up this company.
