Holidays Undercover

Wed Aug 02, 2006 4:56 am

Anyone watching this new series on UK tv? It's basically about undercover reporters looking into the murkier side of holidays abroad.

One couple stayed at the Blue Bay in Cancun and complained because there were porn channels on the tv! They also complained about nakedness around the pool! I call that a bonus!  Big grin

The worse one's though were the touts in Tenerife giving out scratchcards which was basically a way to sell membership to a non-existant holiday club.

Yea, I saw it and I was shocked at that scam in Tenerife! I feel so sorry for the people caught up in it, but even so, why on earth would anyone even waste their time with those scratchcards!

I was less impressed with the holiday rep confessions - nothing like I remember it!

Yes, thats what I thought.

The majority of the people who got caught in those scams that they interviewed tonight mentioned having to still 'repay the loans' taken out to pay for this opportunity.

Guys, if you dont have the money now, dont spend it on something! Its as simple as that. You dont have the money to go for this 'opportunity'.
