They don't force you to make the payment but they are full of lies and as an economics they don't have anything to offer ur finances.
Re: Hemingways Safari(who Knows?) by Oluomo2015: 9:00am On Sep 27, 2015
Its a pity that because if the situation we found ourselves in Nigeria hardly could anything be believed. I was on the Internet to get more information about HEMINGWAY'S SAFARI AFRICA whose Programme made me spent 4 days free at SUMMER BAY EXPLORIA RESORTS Orlando, Florida. it was that exercise that led me to Nairaland postings on the outfit. Yes, HEMINWAY'S are very very expensive, in fact I discovered that now that I am exposed toTimeshare scheme. I joined HSA about 4 years ago. I was 'attracted' to their scheme through their agent at Shoprite, attended their 'seminar' with my wife and lined after ther nerve racking 5 hours negotiation. I paid a whooping sum of =N= 1.8 million. unbelievably, I never utilized their holiday package despite full payment as my journeys are always sudden and that never work withe HSA program that u need to give advance notice. I have almost forgotten about the scheme when I had a telephone calls from a particular line which was not stored in my address book. I didn't pick it initially, as I don't pick unknown number, but when the calls persisted I did and Lo and behold it was HSA agent. They invited me again. I went few days later with my wife. I will like to believe that they never knew I fully paid, going by my non utilization of the scheme. But was shocked when I told them I paid the entire 1.8 million. Instantly they promised holiday accommodation vouchers in Kenya, SA, London and Florida etc. they tried to encouraged me to move my membership from Godl to Diamond I rejected it flatly. I told them to give me the free accommodation my Gold membership deserves. Because I was already billed to travel to Orlando Florida I picked that of SUMMER BAY EXPLORIA RESORTS Orlando. My vacation was for 7 days I had their 4 days reservation from 15th September 2015 to 19th September 2015 after which I planned to move to Holiday Inn Kissimmee. To be honest, I never believed it will work out but I assured myself that I won't be stranded because I have enough means to secure alternative accommodation with ease. Surprisingly, I was given the 4 nights accommodation at the resorts. I am not a believer in swearing or calling the name of God to justify my point. But I assure you all HSA is legit and the are real.now talking about cost they are very expensive. Talking about nature of interest (I mean benefit) they give theirs is far less than some categories of Timeshare that guarantee for ever ownership of holiday package. In 15 years now my 1.8 million will be gone. I am sure many busy messengers like me would have registered too without utilization, leaving HSA with idle funds. By the way HSA is a Kenya based company. Am still in Europe now for continuation of my vacation. I have no reason to lie. Unlike many advance countries, holiday club is not regulated by any statute in Nigeria living members to the whim and caprices of the organizers.

My 4 days was a gift.
I have not used the 1.8 million benefits at all.
The money I paid entitled me for 14 days holiday in accommodation that can accommodate 4 persons. As at now my previous years untilised credit is intact.

Be rest assured that HEMINGWAY'S Safari is legitimate.

Hahahahahaha. We (hubby and I) just couldn't be fooled one bit. Their aggressive marketing is top notch. The way they coin their words and make 1million naira look like 10kobo eeeehhhh. Like they can even afford it. cheesy cheesy. We kept insisting we didn't have money and the marketer attached to us said "but the form you filled says you work with ***. Okay, we could spread the payment over months with check".

We insisted we didn't even have our checkbook with us. The man suggested online transfer cheesy cheesy. I couldn't hold my laughter. My hubby was practically begging me not to make them look silly. We eventually left the conference room with me laughing my heart out and the said marketer following us. He followed us to the car and said "you say you can't afford the package but you use this kind of car". We didn't even respond as I continued in my wicked laughter. cheesy cheesy. And to think the said marketer was a man in his 60s. Obviously, a retiree trying to make ends meet. The very reason I did not give him a piece of my mind.

Have you noticed their agents ask you what you do for a living before they invite you? cheesy. Hunger wey go beat those people dey do press up.

Thanks for the heads up Phema. I for enter once chance with my hubby today if not for your post.

THIS IS A SCAM AND ITS PURELY MULTI LEVEL MARKETING BUILT AROUND A VERY GOOD VACATION PACKAGE. EVEN THOUGH, THE VACATION ASPECT SEEMS REAL THE WHOLE MARKETING STUFF IS FRAUDULENT. I (ME AND MY FAMILY) LOST ALMOST 400,000 TO THESE FRAUDSTERS IN 2012. IT WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST MISTAKE I MADE IN MY LIFE. MY FAMILY LAWYER ENGAGED THEM AND HE INTERPRETED SOME OF THE CLAUSES THAT ARE IN THE AGREEMENT WHICH I SIGNED OFF.

THEY ARE VERY STRATEGIC AND THE WILL MAKE YOU TO SIGN AND MAKE COMMITMENT UNDER DUREX. I CANT EVEN STAND THEIR CALLING , THEY CAN CALL YOU TO LIFE FROM DEATH. THE BAD THING IS THAT THEIR STAFFS DOES NOT EVEN EARN SALARY, BUT COMMISSION. YOU MONEY IS SHARED BASED ON THE HIERARCHY OF THE PEOPLE IN THE MULTI LEVEL SCHEME. THE GUY THAT SIGNS U UP DOES NOT EVEN EARN BETTER PERCENTAGE FROM THAT MONEY, AT LEAST IF YOU CONSIDERED YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY AS A MEANS OF HELPING THE AGENT THAT WANT TO SIGN YOU UP.

MY ADVISE TO PEOPLE IS THAT THEY SHOULD BE GUIDED IN DEALING WITH THEM. 90% OF PEOPLE THAT SIGN UP END UP REGRETTING THEIR ACTION. YOU CAN GO TO FREE WEBSITE TO GET ACCOMMODATION DEALS I.E www.bookings.com EVEN www.wakanow.com IS FAR BETTER IN AIR FLIGHT OFFERS.

MOST OF THEIR AGENT ARE ALWAYS HANGING AROUND PETROL STATIONS AND SHOPPING MALLS LOOKING FOR THEIR PREY.

Re: Hemingways Safari(who Knows?) by debola23(f): 12:41pm On Aug 24, 2016
If I could cause these HsA people, I would.
In 2009, I think we paid about 800k or so for their membership, after paying the bulk sum, you are expected to pay yearly subscription and some other kind of fees anytime you want to use your membership to book your trip. But we weren't able to benefit from the membership as sometimes our travels were not planned out in time. So we counted our losses and forgot about it.
Fastforward 5yrs later, 2015, they started to call us atleast four times aweek that we won a voucher as long standing clients who didnt get to use their voucher. They disturbed us so much with calls that we had to make out time to go from PH to lag to see what the big free gift was all about.

very very unfortunately, we parted with another $2000 and promised ourselves we would start harnessing the benefits of Hemingway to book our vacations. The free gift was the same free voucher u get when you are forced to sit down for their presentation. You are to sign that it is only when you sit through the entire presentation that you are eligible to collect the free voucher. Sure enough we used the voucher to JHB, the place was lovely, three days stay.
We did the 7days a year for 20yrs package.

Then in 2016, we wanted to travel to Dubai and the US, we called upon Hemingways and to our utter disbelief rrealised that asides the bulk sum that you pay for membership, you actually pay a subscription fee every time you want to utilize your membership, you pay $350. For example our Dubai trip was to cost us $350 subscription fee and another $350 exchange fee. then the US trip another $350 subscription fee and $350 exchange fee. That made a total of $1400 that we were to pay Hemingways, after all the bulk sum we had paid earlier.

Pleaseee...... airbnb, booking.com have cheaper rates for very good accommodations. We suddenly didn't see any benefit of paying that large amount they make you pay when you go for their presentation.

okay what about airport pickup that u mentioned was part of your services..........no comment
what about help with Visas, we need Dubai visa.........pay $180 per person.
Okay what about tourism package, when we do find our way to Dubai, do you offer any tourist package.........no we don't.
You also mentioned discount on air tickets........no we didnt.

Pls any of you who have d opportunity of sitting thru the presentation should please record your conversation with them. We didnt have any proof and thats why we couldnt sue.
You see all those people saying hemingways is legit, pls after you use the free voucher, pls try booking for a trip, do like you are ready to use your subscription and let us know what response you get. You will be shocked to realise the huge amount u paid was just a dash, anytime you try to use them to book a your vacation stay, you will still be asked to pay $700 or more depending on the type of membership.

Its so painful beacaue, the $2000 dollars extra we paid would have been more than enough to cater for accomodation. Pls all you that are members, asides the free voucher, have you ever tried to use your membership for one of your trips before?
Pls try to and see how much more you will be asked to pay

I just can't stop wondering and pondering on this issue as i took my time to read from the very first post to the last....

You mean in this recession some dude and family can still afford such money for just vacation?
Now i see y nija will not progress beyond here cos there is a terrible idea of class consciousness that is eating up deeply our society.

Y not help some fellow with half of what u wasted in the name of enjoyment.
Why did u now come here to cry wolf here calling them scam, did they deep thier hands in ur treasury to pull those million u guys wasted there.

How many hopeless and helpless people can u afford to raise with just #50k... It definitely will go a long way to end the grip of poverty in a family line.

Don't get me wrong, not saying its bad going for holidays at your freewill but why choose such money draining platform and eventually ended up not enjoying what you paid for....

For your information God hate waste and He does punishes severely for it....

With my #1.2M per month i will never dare such obnoxious holiday retreat that i can afford more over even in 3months put together...

Nija ppl are just unnecessarily wicked and unequivocally showing class standard dey can't maintain... Rubbish

OH they are SCAMMERS. I got a text from them that i won an all expense paid trip to any country of my choice and i had a voucher worth $1200 waiting for me, when i got there the story changed to paying $8000 (eight thousand dollars) membership fee for 20 years. That was like 4.8 million naira, there i was thinking....... i came here to get a free voucher and now i have to pay for something that was suppose to be free?? They said the fee was for accomodation spanning 20 years with $350 yearly maintenance fee. They had this soft intimidating idea of you not leaving until allowed. So i agreed to pay the money but told them we needed to go to my bank, the agent (Very attractive Tracy) handling my voucher agreed to follow me to my bank where i met with my account officer (Teju) and planned with her to frustrate Agent Tracy for days saying that my account had BVN issues and she kept paying cab fares for like three days for me 1000 Naira per trip trying to get my $8000, i stopped picking her calls on the fourth day. Beware they are SCAMMERS.

SCAMMER! Go and work hard like everyone else. Instead of ripping people off their hard earned money.

"$8,000 for a three day stay in a 4 star hotel" indeed.

Now I see how daft some people can be. A vulture has no biz with a barber's shop. If u were broke and could not afford the membership, must u come on this platform and make an exhibition of yourself? You claim it is a scam so why have u not called the police to arrest them and why is the company still making waves in holiday packages in Nigeria? Well, I am a member of the club and I can tell u it is not a scam at least I travel with my membership with them. I went for their presentation and cos I could afford the membership, my wife and I joined and r benefitting. I wonder what you guys would be saying if HTC were to be a political party. My advice To u guys is that u should be careful what u say about people's biz cos u don't know what others will say about yours. They do their presentation and give u a cost if u r interested but the company does not compell anyone to join.

I just got out of a "3 hours Presentation" by those guys. They picked me and my wife simply because we travel Orton. They told us all sort of thing and made all sort of exaggerated promisses just to get us in attendance.

Throughout the presentation, they tell your all sort of things like most people pointed out already.

I kept asking them what the cost is but the wouldn't tell me until the end of all the bull-shit.

Finally one lady named Blessing (a manager i supposee) walked to our table, took a piece of paper, wrote some figures and sumed it upo to 2,500,000+++ as a discounted membership fee for 10 years.

She wrote this thing down as if we had a prior conversation or negotiations. She was actually expecting me to write her a cheque or make a transfer at the spot... When I say at the spot, I actually mean an equivalent of a hotel apartment at apo.

That was when i decided to break things down to them...

It cost me $495 - 600 for an 8 nights state in a 3-4 star hostel apartment in Dubai, $1000 - 1300 for same in US hot states. They actually expect me to pay them 250,000 naira + $350 for the same grade of hotel at same location.for only 6 nights?

I told them that I need to analyze the offer with my wife and get back to them. But I tell you, by my calculations, their services are $1,000 - $2,000 more expensive than what you will actually spend if you plan your holidays by your self, I mean just accommodation. I don't want to bring other services into the maths yet.

I am only sharing my experience so others could learn from it an know when they are being deceived by some lady from Kenya.

I must be sincere, one thing I took away from their presentation is a new aggressive marketing tactics. Which I will be passing to my board from next year...... Well... And maybe their useless Coupon.

Were you told you'd be staying at a resort and not a hotel like you stated, and that it's a 5-star resort?

I do understand the emotion with which you typed, but I'm sure they mentioned it's not for everybody. Surely, not every 'family' can afford such fees you quoted. However, I've seen people use their package and loved it, so not everyone would feel like it's a scam as I assume you or every other person that attended their 'presentation' wasn't forced into becoming a member or making financial commitments on the very first day.

That people can't afford the quoted sum doesn't make it a scam.

If you feel going on a vacation on your own makes more financial sense to you, then by all means go on with it and disregard theirs. That's what I would do anyway. Cheers smiley

You don't get it do you?

You can see that I said Hotel Resort. One of the hotels I USD in Dubai is even what they have in their list. "Sky Hotels and Apartment". That cost only 605 for 8 nights in their double room.

My issue with them is their marketing approach. Filled with many lies. How can I trust my 2.5m to such organization?

You guys should have some hurnesty on your marketing approach. Just like other travel agencies. They might be more expensive but heir selling point is usually time saved and savings made on transport and visa.

You don't get it do you?

You can see that I said Hotel Resort. One of the hotels I USD in Dubai is even what they have in their list. "Sky Hotels and Apartment". That cost only 605 for 8 nights in their double room.

My issue with them is their marketing approach. Filled with many lies. How can I trust my 2.5m to such organization?
