"No trip is for free" Scams to Avoid Tip by samtan123

Scams to Avoid, Las Vegas: 15 reviews and 3 photos

After a long trip to Vegas and waiting in a cab line, we finally checked into our hotel and on our way to the room, were greeted by a lovely lady welcoming us to the hotel and asking how long we were staying. We thought she was from the hotel and she ushered us to a table with the offer of free shows etc for staying in the hotel (i know, we should have smelt a rat).
Anyway, after picking our free show and dinner deal, we were then informaed that we had to go to a time share meeting in the morning at 9 to get the free stuff AND had to cough up $40 to pay the Tax on the show.
We knew that these guys were on the streets but did not realise they will get you in the hotel. At the end of the day, $40 and half day of your time may be cheap for a show and dinner, but it is not for me!!

Fun Alternatives: In an effort to be left alone, we found that if we didn;t walk together past these guys, they left us alone as they seem to only target couples.
