Fight or Flight? When a Bad Hotel Review Turns to Threats

No matter how hard I’ve tried over the past seven months to put the disappointment of our disastrous destination wedding behind me, I haven’t been able to. You’ll soon understand why.

I was sitting at a marriage conference with my husband when this popped up in my Twitter notifications:

bahama-beach-club

I was immediately sick to my stomach.

Billions of people use social media daily; it follows that not everyone is well behaved. Normally I can just ignore online trolls until they skitter back under the bridge, but this message was one of hundreds of tweets from the same angry Tweeter over the course of several months.

REST IN PEACE?!

The personal nature of the Tweets was most concerning. This was not some anonymous hater; rather, this was someone intimately acquainted with the details of our wedding debacle at Bahama Beach Club. Well, maybe not all the details… clearly @ToVacationIdeas has a one-sided perception of the events of that week.

Hundreds of messages piled up. I never returned a single one other than to ask him to stop contacting me.

Clearly, @ToVacationIdeas was not pleased that I ignored his demands to remove my content. He’s wavered between offering up free vacations to requesting to connect on LinkedIn to demanding answers about how many condos I rented to Tweeting at my clients, colleagues and friends about how I couldn’t afford my wedding and how he makes more money than I do. (Huh?)

You might be wondering as I did, who is this guy is and why is he threatening to get a passport and visa to meet me soon and screw me in the you-know-where? At first glance, his Twitter feed certainly looks like just the average India-based travel and Trump enthusiast, with a peculiar focus on The Bahamas.

But take a closer look at the profile page…

bahama-beach-club

Isn’t that interesting? @ToVacationIdeas’ profile features a photo of the owner’s condo at Bahama Beach Club (I know because we spent more than $4,000 to stay there during wedding week), a link back to BBC’s Facebook page and a pinned Tweet outlining the property’s offerings with a link to their official handle – @BahamaBeachClub.

Have you ever heard of a stranger running a Twitter account to promote a hotel half a world away just for fun? No, of course not.

bahama-beach-club

As the harassing messages and threats of bodily harm continued to roll in and upset me with their growing intensity, I had to know who was behind all the messages. I did a bit of digging and found a few more telling connections including Avdhesh Kumbhar’s LinkedIn page where he lists Bahama Beach Club as an employer… and all his published content is BBC related. I confirmed that he’s also friends with the hotel owner on Facebook.

bahama-beach-club

What could’ve incited such aggressive vitriol from a stranger? It certainly seems too outrageous to be true, but as the harassment has continued over the course of several months, there’s no question what is going on.

bahama-beach-club

After years of nothing but loveliness in The Bahamas, it seems I’ve encountered pirates.

All signs point to this account being supported by the same hotel that falsely advertised its offerings and amenities, lied about hurricane damage, refused to refund guests who stayed at their barely open resort and then accused me of extortion for having the chutzpah to call them out on it.

(Just landing here and want the unbelievable backstory? Part 1. Part 2. Truth & Lies FAQ. Voicemail from the manager assuring us there was no hurricane damage.)

You read that right. In addition to defrauding our guests, remorselessly botching our wedding week and threatening to harm me physically, they’re shamelessly attempting to damage my reputation with clients and colleagues.

Check out some of the folks & brands mentioned in the following Tweets:

What reason could there be to loop in my business contacts & friends? Oh yeah, purposeful, determined defamation.

Because I really didn’t care to participate in this debacle any further – believe it or not, reliving your crappy wedding week over and over isn’t that much fun – I tried to stop it by reporting the account to Twitter, but it only worked for a few days. The employee started a new account under @AdvertisingAsk and proceeded to send me threats from there, too.

bahama-beach-club

bahama-beach-club

bahama-beach-club

You’ve read the hotelier’s response to our TripAdvisor reviews, where he blamed a hurricane and shamed us for not caring about all those folks killed in a shipwreck 300 miles away, weeks before our event in Abaco. He’s openly defamed me on TripAdvisor, accusing me of demanding money for writing “nice things.” And my friends in Abaco have shared even more behind-the-scenes shenanigans that I won’t publish in order to protect them.

In the face of so much physical evidence, photographs, voicemails indicating that the hurricane was a non-issue, he’s soldiered on unabashedly with his smear campaign.

Perhaps this latest development isn’t so shocking now that I think about it.

As a business owner, I guess I understand why a hotelier would use sneaky tactics to get our reviews removed from TripAdvisor – he wants his money and will let no one stand in the way of making it.

But most rational travelers and hotel owners agree that threatening customers is an unacceptable way to handle negative reviews.

bahama-beach-club

bahama-beach-club

I take these threats very seriously. I have no way of knowing if this is just bark with no bite, or if these men, some who live within easy driving distance, will put action to their threats. No one ever really expects a disagreement to turn into assault or murder; then again, I never would’ve expected any of this. Who knows how far it could go or if there’s someone waiting for me outside?

Perhaps in other countries you can get away with such behavior, but in the U.S., it’s a crime. Cyber harassment is not innocent fun or harmless immaturity. It’s a crime punishable by 1-5 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

According to Police Chief Magazine, “Cyberstalking is an escalated form of online harassment directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress and serves no legitimate purpose. The action is to annoy, alarm and emotionally abuse another person.

bahama-beach-club

I wrestled (and if you follow along on Snapchat you’ve seen how little sleep I’ve been getting) with whether to post about this at times debilitating situation, or delete my reviews altogether.

  • Do I keep quiet so as not to anger these men further?
  • Do I delete my truthful review and article of the experience because of threats?
  • Do I uphold my integrity, or shut my mouth and pray that no one shows up at my house or on my next trip?
  • Do I keep writing about the bad experience even though I just want to put it behind me?
  • Do I run the risk of alienating readers and potential business partners by writing about yet another drama with this hotel?

As an entrepreneur and small business owner, every aspect of my success is my responsibility. Researching, writing & editing every post, photography, travel booking, new business, administration, invoicing, contracts, taxes – I do it all, lock, stock and barrel.

If you’ve been around these parts for any length of time, you know much of my life happens online. I live and breathe social media. It’s where I interact with clients and colleagues, find new leads for freelance projects and conduct the day-to-day business of being a blogger and media consultant.

Though it’s taken place in the virtual world, Avdhesh Kumbhar has been effectively storming into my office every day and shouting accusations to clients and colleagues about my inability to perform my job with integrity.

bahama-beach-club

I wish having a horrible wedding week was the worst of this whole experience, but I’ve spent the majority of 2016 fielding these threats. I’ve been sick over this for months. Watching politely & quietly while men tear my reputation apart and threaten to hurt me… I won’t even bother to list the health problems I’ve been having as a result of the stress.

As I said, I have never engaged with the harasser and I hoped my refusal to participate would stop it all. I asked them to stop contacting me and I gave them months of grace. 

Nothing has worked.

bahama-beach-club

I’m backed into a corner. Having read the lies spewing from the hotel owner’s mouth on TripAdvisor, hearing from my friends in Treasure Cay the yarns he’s been spinning to save face on island and now facing months of threats online, I am forced to choose between fight or flight.

I’ve decided, after seeking counsel from our lawyers, other bloggers, police and the FBI, to shine the light of truth in this dark place. Though I wanted to just ignore it, I felt that would be both disingenuous to you as readers and dangerous to me and my family.

I am making this harassment known to protect my professional reputation & my physical wellbeing. This is a business dispute, not Game of Thrones.

These men should know I will not be intimidated by threats. I will not pretend that our experience was something it wasn’t. I will not delete the one review I wrote on TripAdvisor, nor the post I wrote here on my site.

  • These men can lie about the details of the wedding in the face of photographic proof and dozens of witnesses.
  • They can accuse me of extortion.
  • They can pay people to write glowingly positive reviews on TripAdvisor in order to bump negative ones to the bottom.
  • They can cyber-stalk me.
  • They can call me names.
  • They can curse at me.
  • They can hack into my Twitter account.
  • They can report our wedding photos as inappropriate on Facebook.
  • They can write articles on Medium.com about how the wedding disaster was all my fault. (Seriously, read this article. The fact that this is their PR strategy for dealing with unhappy guests makes me wonder how they stay in business at all!)
  • They can defame me in the hopes of tarnishing my professional reputation.
  • They can threaten to show up on my travels.
  • They can shout their nonsense at my clients and colleagues in the Twitterverse.
  • They can threaten to assault, rape and kill me.

At the end of the day, this site is based on the real me – and I refuse to hide the bad stuff in favor of an always shiny life. I’ve never strayed from the truth in the thousands of articles I’ve written over the years, and I won’t now because a few grown men don’t know how to respond to complaints in any other way than a temper tantrum.

My sole aim in writing this post is to protect myself and my family from threats and further harassment in my place of business. By publishing these Tweets, I’m putting those who threaten me on notice.

If anything bad happens to me, you’ll know exactly whose door to knock on first.

UPDATE: WTLV interviewed me about the cyber-harassment from Bahama Beach Club. Craig Roberts was given the chance to provide his side of the story and proof. He didn’t, of course. Full segment here.

*Friends, please, please don’t bother returning these threats with more verbal volleying on the Internet. There is enough wickedness in the world that we don’t need to add to it. I’m not writing about this incident to incite a campaign to destroy the hotel. The hotel staff and the individual condo owners have nothing to do with this; I’d be shocked if any of them are even aware of what’s been going on behind the scenes. I don’t want these people to lose their jobs and of course, I don’t even want the hotel to shut down. I want families to be able to visit Bahama Beach Club and actually get what is advertised. I want brides and grooms to be able to have the relaxing, fun weddings they paid for. That’s still not happening, per this latest wedding review from another bride.

**And please, please don’t let this deter you from visiting The Bahamas. The country’s only role in this drama was the location. Nothing would make me happier than if you booked a flight to The Bahamas and met the wonderful people who live there. Swim with the pigs, dive with Brendal, eat all the conch. I will continue traveling there, too, albeit with beefed up security!

***If you receive any threatening or defamatory communications from “SEO Expert” Avdhesh Kumbhar, @ToVacationIdeas or @AdvertisingASK, please screen shot and send for my ongoing police file.

****Apologies for the strong language in some of these screenshots. I’m presenting everything exactly as I received it. And just in case anyone needs more proof, I have thousands more screenshots of every single message I’ve received.

    Oh gosh, Angie! How has it gone from bad to worse (to utterly horrible!?)?? I’m proud of you for shining light into the darkness of all this. My hope is that the foul voices behind all the lies will be silenced by the truth. Hugs xx

    Hi Angie,

    Saw a post relating to all this online, and ended up here.

    Feel terribly bad for you guys, and not a lot for the people who messed up your wedding.

    But… I have an offer.

    Come back to the Bahamas (if you guys can make it). Bring your wedding clothes.

    I’ll happily donate my time and costs to run a bridal/bride/groom session with you. It may not fix everything, but it may make you feel like the Bahamas isn’t overtaken by pirates, scammers and social media idiots out to destroy you. And you’ll get some some awesome wedding photos! (we could even turn it into a Trash the Dress Session if you’d like)

    The offer is there – let’s make it happen – I’ll even by you a beer/daiquiri/cup of tea at the end!

      To Angie Away

      This is Neha Kumbhar never thought to step into this because i always remain away from his business. this is not the first time he is having debate with someone in the USA, he had before just for posting that he wants to sell links on the gambling sites with PR and someone with nobrain replied him something wrong and he did not left, he never does when he is right, the CEO, Chairperson had to interfere himself and get the thread deleted at GPWA Times Forum.

      He is one guy who calls prostitutes, asks them why they do it and shows them way to get our and i am proud of this, so if you say he said to rape you, i doubt because prostitutes call him and he just says you are not my cup of tea.

      The person who encourages me, i met him at 5 in indore and at 8 we had our flights booked to have for marriage and he said my family marrying your daughter and do whatever you can do about it, whatever he does infront not in the back of some guy. Now this is to his carrier.

      I see your cheap friends talking he is Trump supporter etc, yes i am proud about that, he is the guy who never had loans on his name and from last over 15 years he earns funds which top ranked institute students earn, nothing have affected him in between except all you are doing online, He had said you in the start he will pay you then why you did not left on that note?

      If you talk about FBI or CBI or Police, let me make one thing very clear he is not afraid of anyone when he is true, i have seen him slapping people in front of Police, he hates lies and liers, have very less friends because of the same.

      Yes there are very few counted people who know his real name, everybody knows him from his nick name (Boogie)

      Fight or Flight is your decision but do not forget he will always have support of his wife and mother of his daughter, whatever the circumstances we will be always together.

      He can never write the word Rape because he hates that, he even hates coming in highlight and you have done that now, the only word i remember he lies is “Courage”

      Did you think there is nobody to support him, if i have not told anything that does not means i am not with him. You are the one taking help of your cheap friends and targeting him and saying anything in air, he replies on his own does not needs any one to support him.

      All the best. Thank You

    Oh Angie, how awful that this has escalated so far! I’m so sorry that you’ve been losing sleep and feeling unsafe, but so glad you decided to take it to the police, you 100% made the right decision in my opinion. Also to share it here, I for one am definitely not alienated by it and in fact appreciate your integrity and the bravery it takes to share the good with the bad.

    That medium.com article is something else – it basically implies that if you book an off-season wedding in the Bahamas, you should expect ongoing construction and disappointments in what you booked, no information, and to have to move to an entirely different location… as standard?! If anyone’s giving a bad advert for Bahamas wedding tourism, it’s that guy…

      And I agree – that Medium article is something else. So you shouldn’t book a wedding in October, but they’ll gladly take your money, but it’s all your fault if they screw it up? Yeah. Right.

    This is not the first time that I’ve heard of travel companies responding inappropriately to negative reviews. It seems like this is an ongoing problem, which blows my mind as someone who is in marketing! I wish these companies would look at the negative reviews as an opportunity to do better and show customers that they care by apoligizing, instead of viewing it as a personal attack.

    On a completely different note, I love reading your blog and it has inspired me to write my own travel blog. Thanks for sharing your story and I hope things start to look up!

    What a disgusting human being. I know you mention that you don’t want the hotel to be shut down, but after following your story since the beginning, I wish he would be in a place where he did not have financial resources to put this effort into making your life miserable. I truly hope that he is criminally tried and he serves jail time for being such a horrible person. I will never, ever set foot at that hotel.

    • May 29, 2016

      Hey Christina! You make a great point. We initially asked for about $5,000 – a partial refund for our guests who paid full price to stay at a closed resort. They’ve now spent much more than that trying to discredit me – how foolish!

    I am so sorry Angie to hear about this. I’ve followed your travel journals, blogs and instagram for over a year now. I love your stuff. I have seen that you travel quite often to the Bahamas. So this experience must have been shocking for you as it is indeed a lovely place. We visit every other summer.

    What’s sad is that this article sounds so harsh on the Bahamas when the focus should be on the culprit who is defaming an entire country by there negligence. There are many travel companies that sell packages and while many of them offer what you ask for, there are some very dishonest ones out there. We had a similar experience booking a trip in Greece. I hope you can soon find peace of mind and that these men can be brought to justice.

    • May 29, 2016

      Hey there – I have to politely disagree with you about the focus of the article. I intended it fully to be about the culprits and the hotels. Which part of the story did you feel was harsh on the Bahamas? I’ve been very clear since the beginning (and very clearly in this article as well) that the Bahamas are not at fault. It’s unfortunate the hotel shares a name with the destination. If I were Bahamian, I’d start a petition to make them change it!

      Hey Tenniel,

      Thank you for chiming in! Many Bahamians have reached out to apologize for the actions of this ridiculous hotelier and his minion, but I agree that the country as a whole could do more to own the hospitality industry. There are so many other places people could choose to travel, and sooner or later they will go elsewhere if things don’t take a turn for the better. I appreciate you reading & sharing!

Has he truly nothing else going on in his life besides spending time in the Twitterverse harassing you? What an incredibly sad existence. Poor guy.

    I’m so sorry this happened to you. I, too, hope that someone steps up and helps donate a perfect wedding for you. It’s sad that what should’ve been one of the happiest days of your life has turned into an ongoing nightmare.

    Angie, so sorry to hear you’re having to deal with this. Companies like Twitter and Facebook must do more to protect their users. I would continue to report every fake account that harasses you and see if you can get a personal contact at Twitter to expedite their closures.

    I think you did the right thing by sharing your experience and brining the harassment to light. This will pass. Stay strong! ❤️

  • May 23, 2016

    While the Bahamians are in no way at fault here—you know how I feel about the country; love it with all my heart—I can’t help but feel disheartened that the tourism board/ministry knows that things like this go on in their island nation and is doing NOTHING to make BBC pay the consequences =(

I really hope the FBI is investigating this issue and is able to do something about it on the back end. From a previous incident a colleague of mine was dealing with, I know that they are very good at pin pointing exactly where online content is coming from, like to the exact location. Maybe they can flag the person and stop them if they try to enter the US. Thanks for telling the truth and I hope the cyber bullying stops soon so that you can get on with your life and put this horrible incident behind you.

    I see your cheap friends talking he is Trump supporter etc, yes i am proud about that, he is the guy who never had loans on his name and from last over 15 years he earns funds which top ranked institute students earn, nothing have affected him in between except all you are doing online, He had said you in the start he will pay you then why you did not left on that note?

    If you talk about FBI or CBI or Police, let me make one thing very clear he is not afraid of anyone when he is true, i have seen him slapping people in front of Police, he hates lies and liers, have very less friends because of the same.

    Yes there are very few counted people who know his real name, everybody knows him from his nick name (Boogie)

    Fight or Flight is your decision but do not forget he will always have support of his wife and mother of his daughter, whatever the circumstances we will be always together.

    He can never write the word Rape because he hates that, he even hates coming in highlight and you have done that now, the only word i remember he lies is “Courage”

    Did you think there is nobody to support him, if i have not told anything that does not means i am not with him. You are the one taking help of your cheap friends and targeting him and saying anything in air, he replies on his own does not needs any one to support him.

    All the best.Thank you.

      Wth does that even mean? Your husband started this by harassing her! She doesn’t even know him! Maybe you should tell him that threatening someone with rape or bodily harm is illegal. Maybe talking to women like that is ok in your country but it won’t fly in the US. I suggest he back off now, and tell the man who hired him to do the same.

      Neha,

      Your husband has been harassing me for 5 months In January he began sending me threatening messages demanding I remove my content. I’ve saved each and every one, including the ones where he threatens to rape, assault and kill me. They are all included in this article, so read them.

      The police are aware of his crimes and his affiliation with Bahama Beach Club. There is no defense for this level of bullying and intimidation – it is criminal. As I’ve asked before, please tell your husband to leave me alone, stop threatening me and stop trying to hack my social media accounts.

    This is Neha Kumbhar never thought to step into this because i always remain away from his business. this is not the first time he is having debate with someone in the USA, he had before just for posting that he wants to sell links on the gambling sites with PR and someone with nobrain replied him something wrong and he did not left, he never does when he is right, the CEO, Chairperson had to interfere himself and get the thread deleted at GPWA Times Forum.

    Hey Angie….just read your entire post, and man….I knew it was bad, but not that bad. That is just out of hand….how can any person have so much hate in their hearts. This is so sad (for you, and this poor man full of such vitriol).

    Just know you strengthen us all by standing up to this bully, and we have your back in whatever way is needed.

    In solidarity,
    Mike & Anne

    The term fight or flight describes a mechanism in the body that enables humans and animals to mobilize a lot of energy rapidly in order to cope with threats to survival.

    I am sorry that this has gone on so long and I hope you find some resolution soon his views do not reflect the attitude of the rest or should I say the most of us . I hope that you find it in your heart to return and really experience the Bahamas and the wonderful friendly people that live here

  • June 13, 2016

    This makes me sick reading this. I can’t imagine. I wrote one post that got death threats/rape threats that only lasted a few days… I can’t imagine months of dealing with something like that. This is just crazy. Especially the tagging of companies you’ve worked with. Heart goes out to you!!! I also appreciate your real-ness and ability to show all aspects of your life.

    Whatever you decide, your thousands of readers and supporters are behind you 100%!

      Thank you so much for your encouraging words, Chantae!

    Hang in there girl!! We all know the real story and support you.This guy and his wife clearly have nothing better to do, although it’s odd that she keeps posting the same comment over and over again.

    Also, I think it’s very clear that you don’t blame the Bahamas for this. You’ve stated that in every blog you’ve written about this experience.

    Hi there,
    Just became aware of this situation via a Facebook post. I’ve been to BBC a few times for lunch. I’ll be boycotting them for the foreseeable future and advising all others to do so. This is horrible for our tourism product and this guy needs to go back where he came from. Sorry this happened to you.

    This is absolutely ridiculous, although I do honestly believe they hired a “Keyboard Warrior” and nothing more to ruin your online reputation and business. Hope it all works out for you in the end!

    I just found the info on this & am shocked. The situation with the hotel, reviews, and then Twitter were absolutely ridiculous. And then the responses from the “wife”…totally unbelievable!

    Good luck with everything & keep getting the word out for your protection.
