Complaint Category: Entertainment
Claim Amount (Approx.): 155000
My Complaint Description:
I got a call from Country vacations to attend one of their promotional events at their office located in City Centre-1 ,Saltlake,Kolkata-700091 ,me and my wife went to their office as its basically for married couples on 21st May 2016 and We were explained about various benefits,discounts and holidays that we are going to get if we avail the offer and take membership.To mention few of the benefits we were told that
1.We will get 20to40% discount on domestic and international Flights
2.We were told that all their properties are 4to6 star properties and we can easily avil the facilities by using their Mobile app .
3.We were told that we do not have to pay AMC for the years we don't avail any facilities
Initially We were told to pay INR 210000 under 24 or 12 months EMI scheme but seeing we are reluctant it was
1st got reduced to 1.89L with same EMI offers and we were told they have tie up with big banks like SBI and ICICI and since i am holding both the cards so i can easily avail the offer .Still seeing I am reluctnat then came the next offer
2nd it got reduced to 1.55L (condition was very funny that after you avail your 1st vacation all i need to do is refer a friend for which they reduce the amount from 1.89 to 1.55L)
Then I told them that my SBI card which i was carrying with me does not have the credit limit in it then they cleverly told me that you can pay 70,000 from SBI and then we can initiate the contract and later you can pay the rest .I originally paid 50,000 from my SBI card and then the contact was signed .later they sent one executive with me to my home who came and used my ICICI card t take 95,000 and i gave 10,000 as cash . so the total amount they took was 1.55L .When i went through the contract it was telling a different story all together .since then i am following up with them through emails,over phone and meeting in person to cancel the contract but since they are cheats they have come to a level where they are asking me to provide scanned copy of the papers where the executives explained me the scheme which is really funny and tells you about the level of cheating they are doing .All this are mentioned in email .
Also just to inform you I requested to cancel the contract in less than 24hours and also disputed the transactions with the bank but even banks are not co operating in this matter .
There are many people like me from across India who are suffering like this due to the same company ,So will appriciate if you can help .
