Crystal Sands Tourism, Qatar | Holiday Voucher | Gift Voucher | Is it legit?

Dear All,

This is the

This is the continuation of my previous post. 

I had previously shared my experience with Crystal Sands Tourism, B-Ring Road. This is to elaborate on how their scheme worked and why they are not yet behind bars.

1) Collect Name and Numbers of families in front of supermarkets

2) Call victims and tell them to come to the office to collect free gifts with family where you have to pay nothing. If you go with your spouse, they will play mind games to make you sign the contract. Also, they give milk, biscuits and juice to kids to keep them occupied.

    2.1 About 10 people will sit in one room with a trained sales/brainwash executive.  They play music so you won't hear what is happening at the nearest tables.

    2.2 They have staff to handle kids so that kids won't cry or disturb you during brainwashing sessions and they can prolong the session until you agree.

   2,3 Lies Lies Lies

             Lie 1.  We were giving tour plans to companies before, we are expanding business to regular people now. We have given tour plans to employees in companies like Qatar Airways, Qatar Energy, Mannai etc.

             Lie 2. They offer flexible EMI for 12 months and 24 months. They don't have a connection with any bank. They will deduct the entire amount in one shot and they will play every game to avoid giving service and refund. If you see the full amount in their POS machine run away.

             Lie 3. They offer a full package which includes everything except Air Ticket. I was planning for Umrah and they said for the holy pilgrimage everything is covered. There are a few smart guys who did fight well and received hotel bookings even though it was in an average place. None of them received any other than a hotel booking which is given only once in your lifetime. If you plan for a second trip you will never be able to get anything. 

             Lie 4. Lulu Voucher: They have no relation with the Lulu group. I did report it in Lulu and they said they don't know anything about Crystal Sands Tourism and they don't have any relation with the scammers. Many people asked for a hotel booking after spending a large amount of money on Airfare and the expenses in the place nobody got a Lulu voucher other than the one 50 riyal coupon they received while joining.

             Lie 5: They give you login credentials to log in from any country and book tickets. Nobody, Literally nobody got a login credential to log in to their page. This is just to convince you to sign the contract.

             Lie 6: They have branches in India, UAE, Qatar and many other countries.

             Lie 7: Everything else they told is a lie. I missed many please put the rest in the comments if you remember anything else

3. Round 1: Assessing your paying capacity and whom to convince

          3.1 Who is the decision maker in your family?

          3.2 What was the last trip you went on? How much do you spend on a trip?

         3.3 What is your credit card limit?(Another way to ask what is your salary)

         3.4 How often do you travel? What is the duration of the travel?

         3.5 An so on.

3. They will keep on adding offers until you agree. Few people signed up for a plan which gives Lulu coupons for the amount they paid(Literally free). They say they give Lulu coupons after using the service. But it is a bad joke.

4. They clap when someone signs up for a plan. Just to convince others. Not sure how many claps are legit.

5. People will come with fancy titles like Manager or senior manager and brainwash you efficiently.

Why they are still not in Jail?

1. They only target Indians. They know the police won't give priority to Indians like European/American/British or Qatari. Also, most Indians fight for a while and give up because they don't want any trouble. 

2. If someone is so powerful or the police accept someone's complaint they will refund and settle it(Again to avoid legal issues).

3. If you can be easily threatened or you don't want trouble, forget your money.

4. If someone posts in Qatarliving or anywhere they will threaten you, and trouble you until you delete the post. They have a unique way of creating a fake email ID and asking QL team to delete the post. If there are so many posts they will be legally scr3wed up.

5. They purposefully didn't create a Google page to avoid bad reviews. Or else people will blast them with negative comments and MOI itself go to their office and arrest them at the scene.

6. Most of their employees don't use their real name like the Srilankan guy named Shyam. Check his QID.

7.  Their company is registered and they have the right to add non-refundable terms in the contract. It is legally valid until you prove they are scammers or they didn't provide service. The police won't take a complaint easily as you signed a non-refundable contract(the police will still take it. Need time to convince them). However, MOCI accepts the complaint and you will money back(they won't take action against the company as they will refund).

How to get a refund?

Don't fall for their threatening tricks. No lawyer in the country supports these scammers. They don't have a legal team. Raise a complaint in MOCI the Duhail CID office or the Qatar Tourism Authority(Whichever is near to you). The process might not be very transparent. But it is not broken yet. Don't lose hope. I heard recently they settled the full or partial amount to many victims who raised complaints. Looks like they are facing some legal issues. So they might run away any time soon.

Is this scam new in Doha?

No, it is been happening for a long under the below names:

Gulf Gate Tourism WLL

Marhaba Tourism WLL

Royal Regis, Qatar

Country Club, Doha

Add anyone if I missed it.

 

Must share and post comments. Let us spread awareness about the scam which is wild. I got my money after a long and desperate fight. I don't want anyone to fall victim to these scammers.

Hello everyone,

Is there any way forward. I am also one of their victim.

Dear All,

I came to know crystal sands team left from the country.. now they left the country.. we all lost our money.. i called to the bank for charge back.. but as per bank they accept disputes wirhin 6 months period..

Whoever have transaction within 6 months apply for disputes.. as their office is close they will not able to send necessary documents like agreement id copy charge slip to the bank.. and bank has to accept your charge back.. it takes around 4 weeks to get your refund on cards..

PS- your card must be visa or mastercard.. irrespective of debit or credit..

How to request a chargeback

If asking the merchant for a refund didn't work, request a chargeback with your credit card issuer. Many card issuers let you dispute transactions by phone, mail or online. You may also be able to submit a dispute directly through your card issuer's mobile app.

When you submit a chargeback, you may need to include supporting documents, such as copies of a receipt, invoice, contract and any communications you had with the merchant. Anticipate that the dispute can last up to 90 days or two billing cycles, whichever is shorter.

Once you submit a chargeback request, the exact process varies depending on your card issuer, network and situation, but generally results in some back-and-forth between various parties. Here's an example of how the process may go, according to Experian:

You file a chargeback request.

Your card issuer reviews the dispute and will decide if it's valid or if you have to pay. If your issuer accepts the dispute, they'll pass it on to the card network, such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover, and you may receive a temporary account credit.

The card network reviews the transaction and either requires your card issuer to pay or sends the dispute to the merchant's acquiring bank.

The merchant's acquiring bank takes one of two actions: Sends the dispute back to the card network and says the issuer is at fault or forwards the dispute to the merchant.

If the merchant gets it, they either agree to pay for the transaction or dispute the chargeback.

If the merchant disputes the chargeback, there may be more back-and-forth as the merchant, acquiring bank and card issuer try to settle the matter. But if the merchant agrees to pay, the process is a bit smoother.

At the end of the day, the card network decides who pays. A successful dispute will deem the temporary credit you received to become permanent.

This is only way to get refund.. dont waste your time and call the bank and raise disputes..

I encountered challenges with my hotel booking; upon contacting the hotel, they indicated no reservation was held. Subsequent attempts to reach Cristal Sand yielded no response. Following multiple requests and a visit to their office, they arranged accommodation after persistent efforts and discussions, albeit amidst difficulties with the front desk personnel.

There was a notable discrepancy between the promises made during the marketing phase and the actual service provided, which left me feeling disappointed. Furthermore, as per our agreement after the initial tour, a gold or Lulu cash voucher was promised, and I'll be making a formal request for it and see if they are going to provide

Hello, I subscribed to their 16-day package but haven't utilized any services yet. I've recently booked a hotel for a UAE trip through them. The hotel confirmed the booking, but payment hasn't been made to secure it fully. Fingers crossed for a smooth process as I'm traveling with my kids. I'll provide an update on my overall experience after my trip.

@riyagupta9975 what a loyal customer of Crystal. Anyone who reads this post can identify she is one of their illicit alley. Screamingly illicit. Seems like she is paid full. Apparently more than what she (supposedly) paid to crystal sands and stayed in hilton. She speaks as if crystal runs a charity and overwhelmingly provides service morethan what is paid. So riya what makes you bark so well for parker and his foul language here.? He says he had tea with someone and that made me laugh poor guys. He must be begging pls dear delete posts about our company which gives bread and butter. Go get some better job inshallah. Beg for his forgiveness if you repent.

The best i like is calling customers an extortionist. As if we came to qatar to extort parker and riya and crystal rachel etc., Getting a job and retaining it itself takes our breath out in qatar and we extort money is it?? Shameless junkyards. What will you tell your kids about your job? Working for frauds and making fraud yourself? Will you or your kids feel proud? Guys whoever is cheated by Crystal sands fraud tourism pls dont leave your hard earned money. There are good authorities who will treat you well inshallah. Mark my words. And riya destroy the report button.;) I love the way you lie.

Your scam company is exposed Riya. Don't be so hard. I will ask Vicky to give you a raise. Everyone here knows Crystal Sands Tourism is a fraud company. You created a fake account to say series of lies to protect your scam company. Create a verified account and then challenge the victims. You won't get the details of victims even if you challenge them to share personal information. Everyone knows your agenda.

How do you remember these many ids and password..

Riya gupta is my real Name.. i am not affraid like you to share my details.. if you have dare you also share.. but you cant do that.. you have so many fake ids.. the best one i like rachel_crystal.. use some brain.. she is employee of crystal sands..

So they have committed me flight voucher.. which i didnt utilise so they converted into lulu voucher.. i already got half of worth and balance i will get this month..

Why it is coming on gulf gate website make me think more about your bad intentions.. you internet extortionist can go to any level.. i wish you are not involved in that.. but whoever involved must be fooled to do that.. and people reading and believing the same are brain less.. if you would be in there would you have posted your name on gulf gate website..?? So its done by Internet extortionist.. and this extortionist is fully trained..

By nixnixon2001• 8 Nov 2023 16:30

@riyagupta9975.

Please read below list of lies from your statements.

Lies -1. first of all you are not the one of the member and if you are the member why you dont posted with your original ID but you did so much efforts to create new ID and support Crystal sand.

And you one of them from crystal sand. as you so much of aware of their rules and policy , behaviour etc but you are not aware of what crystal sand is doing with many innocent poor people. and you have so much time to describe your good journey with crystal sand.

Lies-2. As you mentioned you are going to receive 1500 voucher by this month. which is totaly lies as voucher crystal sand will provide on every early basis , and as you joined on han 2023 how are they are going to give 2nd voucher in november 2023. so my question is why crystal sand is so much greatfull to you only and not to the other poor people who is complaining about this.

Lies 3. As you said Gulfgate website is created by someone and written relationship of crystal sand - i may agree . but go and check your own website https://crystalsandstourism.com/ why it has name coming many locations as gulf gate.

i will tell you the reason- because only the Cover page of gulfgate only changed, many things like internal content of website is still same. you guys are exposed , dont worry soon you will be in jail. my advice close the Shope and runaway other wise ....be ready to face the consequences

There are many things which i can proof lies from your whole statements, but i believe this is enough to understand people what crystal sand is. Totally fake and Froud.

Shame on you riyagupta9975.

You are shameless to call a victim as extortionist. You and you fake husband will be apprehended soon. Out of the many victims I met, literally no one availed promised services. Many victims fought and got scraps.

Hope I will see you and other CST staffs like this. This will happen in no time.

And thank you for confirming that CST has no link with any banks and the money is at customers risk. This is duly noted.

Hello, everyone..

I have been a member of this company since Jan 2023.. I have paid 11000 QR.. So far i got two holidays from Crystal Sands.. i stayed at Hilton Salwa resort for 1 night.. and i have stayed 3 nights in the hotel Saket Plaza mahabaleshwar.. I have got 1500 qr worth of lulu voucher.. more than 1500, i am supposed to get this month..

We have requested cancellation because we are not in a position to use the holidays.. we have tried all the best possible ways to get the refund, but unfortunately, we were not having anything solid point for refund we couldn't get it.. there agreement states that if they fail to provide the services, they will refund..

But now we have made up our mind that we won't be asking for a refund anymore.. we will use the services.. there could be if and buts, but these people are good, and they always try something for solving the issues.. which i really appreciate.. unless you behave properly with them..

A few days back, i talked with one guy, and i will not maintain his real name (qatar living id harushi, and mail id is madhanvedivel1981@gmail.com).. He paid 18500 through credit card on an emi basis.. This guy said He was not aware that 18500 is going to swipe.. this is suspicious.. but that time, i was in negative thought about crystal sands, so i thought may be he is cheated.. It's very common sense if we buy anything on credit cards, we need to swipe full value of the product, and later, we have to pay back to the bank in emi.. Crystal sands dont have tie up with any bank.. but they do reimburse bank fees for emi conversion.. This guy is very smart . He asked for extortion money to crystal sands orelse he will post negativity on social platforms with different names (you can see his mail at Crystal Sands office).. may be this mohammed ali is his fake account..

Someone have created one website of gulfgate and have put comment that Gulf Gate and Crystal Sands are the same company.. if these two are the same company, then they are fool enough to write this on their website.. common sense.. but this guy who created that webpage dont have any..

This guy has changed the name of Gulf Gate to crystal sands tourism WLL on Gulf Gate google page..

I am posting this all because as a genuine member, we are doubting the company because of these web extortionist.. These guys dont post anything with their real name or legitimate email id.. they are collecting details of unsatisfied customers to use as weapons against crystal sands for extortion..

It's my humble request to everyone who are members of the crystal sands directly coordinate with crystal sands.. dont fall in this extortionist trap.. if your problem is genuine regarding services, u insist on a refund.. they will refund you or they will give you such a solution which will be on win win side for both..

but if you fall into a trap in this extortionist, and this extortionist became successful in their plan, we all have to suffer..

Hello, everyone..

I have been a member of this company since Jan 2023.. I have paid 11000 QR.. So far i got two holidays from Crystal Sands.. i stayed at Hilton Salwa resort for 1 night.. and i have stayed 3 nights in the hotel Saket Plaza mahabaleshwar.. I have got 1500 qr worth of lulu voucher.. more than 1500, i am supposed to get this month..

We have requested cancellation because we are not in a position to use the holidays.. we have tried all the best possible ways to get the refund, but unfortunately, we were not having anything solid point for refund we couldn't get it.. there agreement states that if they fail to provide the services, they will refund..

But now we have made up our mind that we won't be asking for a refund anymore.. we will use the services.. there could be if and buts, but these people are good, and they always try something for solving the issues.. which i really appreciate.. unless you behave properly with them..

A few days back, i talked with one guy, and i will not maintain his real name (qatar living id harushi, and mail id is madhanvedivel1981@gmail.com).. He paid 18500 through credit card on an emi basis.. This guy said He was not aware that 18500 is going to swipe.. this is suspicious.. but that time, i was in negative thought about crystal sands, so i thought may be he is cheated.. It's very common sense if we buy anything on credit cards, we need to swipe full value of the product, and later, we have to pay back to the bank in emi.. Crystal sands dont have tie up with any bank.. but they do reimburse bank fees for emi conversion.. This guy is very smart . He asked for extortion money to crystal sands orelse he will post negativity on social platforms with different names (you can see his mail at Crystal Sands office).. may be this mohammed ali is his fake account..

Hello everyone,

Are Gulf Gate Tourism and Crystal Sands the same company?

Gulf Gate, I assumed, had already closed.
