Scammed on EBAY!!!
Posted 12 October 2008 - 09:30 PM
A few days later, we received a voucher in the mail that now said we needed to submit a $35 money order to receive the reservation form. WTF!!! There was no mention of this in the auction information so I emailed the person. He said it was something he had to do for his company, so we mailed the money order and form to get our reservation form. Another week later I received the reservation form and was getting excited. The next morning, I receive an email from paypal and EBAY that they removed this listing because of suspicious activity and suspected fraudulent activity. OK, now I am freaking out! I immediately get on the phone with paypal to dispute the transaction to get my $ back. The rep said that the guy has 10 days to respond to the dispute and if no response, I should have my money back on the 12th day!!!!! Whew!!!
Hopefully everything goes fine and I get my money back. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER!!!

Having said that, me and my boy just came back from 3 "FREE" nights at the "Pallazzo." (the new, BEAUTIFUL hotel joined to the Venetian) That came about b/c of his previous 'dealings' with the hotel... (accomodation, gambling, etc.) They "offered" him a little get-away and we had a great few days away! (their suites are beautiful!) But we also paid, in kind... We dined, we gambled... be it through drinks, bets, etc., etc. Trust me when I tell you, them make it back...
We're (or at least *I* as the new controlling, Godzilla wife!) is expecting another few "FREE" nights away! LOL
If you think that it's 'too good to be true,' It probably is... enough said
