Travel company offering discounted trips to "make up for the loss of a previously unused deposit".
I got scammed in 2007 by a cruise company and never took their cruise (and lost my deposit of over 500$). Now I am getting these phone calls, 7 years later! I finally spoke to someone (after I called them back since they would always hang up when I answered) who kept trying to convince me to buy a new trip and they would apply my "lost deposit" to the new trip.
She asked for my information but I told her since my number came up on the display, she should be able to pull my file with that info. She said she did and said that my original deposit had been for 298$ (I infact lost almost double that in 2007). She never once used my name and couldn't tell me anything about how the payment had been made.
She gave me the website toursconsulting.com as proof of the company's validity. The website works but I can't find anything when I search for the company in Google. However, every website that pops up when I search the phone number comes up with a SCAM ALERT!
She also didn't want to take no for an answer and it took me three times requesting for my number to be removed before she would comply. Let's see if it worked.
