PANAMA’S Consumer Protection Authority (Acadeco) has issued a warning to purchasers of vacation packages.
Administrator Garcia Cardoze says that they get 78 complaints a year of which some 10 percent become criminal investigations and recommends that consumers should be aware of potential problems when they are purchasing such plans.
She said that it is essential to carefully read the contract and not to give credit card information without checking the history of the company.
Most of the complaints revolve around free vacations that are actually high-pressure sales pitches to invest in time shares or other real estate deals.
Another precaution recommended by the authority is that consumers should verify the actual existence of companies that promote these packages
