1/30/2020 UPDATE – The fake Instagram account has been taken down by Instagram. Please remain vigilant on social media and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
It was brought to our attention that a fake College Party Cruise Instagram page was created by a scammer. The fake Instagram page is @college_party_cruise. The scammer is following users on Instagram and offering “discounted tickets” for College Party Cruise and has even set up a “call center” (aka his cellphone). If you have been followed, or have been contacted by the scammer, please report the account and block them immediately. DON’T FALL FOR IT!
We have reported the account to Instagram. In the meantime, we urge you to please be vigilant and if you are followed by any account offering “discounts” and asking you to pay them directly, THEY ARE 100% A SCAM. We will never ask for you to send us Paypal, Venmo, Zelle payments to a random @gmail or other personal email account. Booking for CPC is only available through our website, collegepartycruise.com. In addition, all payments are processed by either “Ignite Cruises” or “Royal Caribbean Cruise Line” ONLY! If you have any doubts, contact us directly through our official website: https://collegepartycruise.com
This is a common scam on Instagram. Scammers set up fake brand accounts (for events like our cruise, festivals, concerts, or even charity events) and sell “tickets” to unsuspecting users. Please be careful on social media, and never transfer money through Paypal/Venmo/Zelle without verifying the company in question. Google the company, go to their official website, and contact them through official channels. You can also verify the company’s official social media links by going to their website.
Please stay safe out there!
