quay marketing


Won a free holiday? Suspicious? This is the place for you!

Has anyone been contacted by this company and has anyone taken up their offer of a "bargain £49 holiday". I was always led to believe if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

Too good to be true. They always are.

This is probably the Exeter one of that name (if so see the Buena Viva and Matford call centre threads) if not - could you give some more detail? Where are they, phone numbers, where is the presentation (because there is one) and is there a web site?

It is the standard Buena Viva scam then. Keep well clear.

i have been offered the same package with the £49 admin fee. to be honest i had 2 phone calls from quay marketing and only said that i would attend a presentation just to get them out of my face. i had no intention of travelling all the way to exeter and wanted to end my argument with someone telling me that a £2000 holiday was mine for the taking. i knew that there would be strings attached and my annual earnings would be of no interest to them if there were nothing to sign-up for. i did receive a follow-up call where i explained that i had only agreed to arttend the presentation just to shut up the caller. please dont take notice of these would be confidence tricksters, if they were for real then why not have business premises in towns all over the country and not on trading estates. LEAVE ALONE

I have been contacted by the same people telling me that my holiday is there waiting for me to collect,just £49.00 to pay.When asked if they could send the holiday to me they said no I had to attend Marsh Barton Exeter to go through the brochers as they could not pick a holiday for me as i might get one I didn`t want.She sounded quite desprate by this point.I have no intention of going and nor should anyone else.You will be done.

- but you usually say things like that. I am sure that it is possible to work the system to your advantage however what happens at Exeter is a total and very unpleasant scam which can cost the victims a lot of money. That cannot be excused.

Fred 2. I,ve read a lot of threads about this scam over the last week and I owe a lot of thanks to the likes of yourself and others that have warned against going.When I had the first phone call it was a total free holiday then came a letter about a small addmin fee.What other surprises may be lurking I wonder?Willself says himself he has spent £56 each flights.That dose,nt look very free to me.Please anyone reading this wake up and smell the coffee.

Willself is saying that if you shop around you can still get very cheap holidays independently without dealing with the sharks at all. It just takes a bit of time and effort.
