I have received over 20 phone calls in one week (verified by phone company) all of which are hang ups from this company. I have tried to call back to have my name taken off their list, but I can't even get a hold of anyone. I only get a message that doesn't work.

I have looked this company up in the better business Bureau and found the following information.

AUTHOR: Kenneth - (U.S.A.)

I did some checking. I'm not thrilled with what I have learned and have alerted the Treasure Island, Fl, City Hall regarding what I found.

If you go to the webaddress of Capital Vacations at http://www.capitalvacation.biz/ you will notice that there address is 3 Bellevue Dr. I did some checking and it's a home. Not a business, but a house owned by Nicholas and Stephanie Delcorso.

While I conduct business out of my house, I'm a little surprized that a major business like this is operating out of a 2300 square foot home.

Just more info to pass on to you all.

You can view the other details about the house by going to this link.... It's long so you'll have to cut and paste it into place.

I just received a call from my bank asking me if I had charged $149.00 to a Capital Vacations.

I told them about this Ripoffreport.com and they stated they would begin a Fraud investigation against the company. They're going to the Feds!!!!!!!!!

We may yet see the end of this company.
