Complaint Review: Bear Country Vacations, Fantastic Destinations

Bearcountry Vacations, Fantastic Destinations Ripp-Off! Took my money and I received nothing in return!! Los Angeles California
*Consumer Comment: Good luck! They've been ripping people off for a long time and nothing will be done about it.
June 4, 2004 I paid $124.00 to Fantastic Vacations for the eBay purchase via PayPal.
June 8, 2004 I received a letter in the mail stating that Fantastic Vacations handled the sales portion of my vacation while Bearcountry Vacations handled the reservations.
June 10, 2004 I paid a deposit of $320.00 to Bearcountry Vacations via Visa Debit card. I completed the RRF - Reservation Request Form and then after many many emails and phone calls (from June - September) was denied all 3 dates requested. So now it's September, just a few weeks before getting married and we do not have our Honeymoon destination confirmed. We end up staying in the States and missed out on our dream vacation. So we decided to wait until our 5 year Anniversary to go. So here it is... Feb. 2009, I figure there's plenty of advanced planning if I re-schedule the trip now, for travel in September. Surprise! I got duped. I never received any notification from anyone that Bearcountry Vacations/Fantastic Destinations was going out of business. I can't believe that it's now 5 years later and I'm just finding out!!!
I submitted a complaint to the BBB of CA. I'm hoping for a positive response, but am willing to continue to pursue this further if necessary.
Gives new meaning to "Buyer Beware".
