1ST ITEM: I just filed a small claims suit against them and am waiting for a court date after they get served the papers by the Marshall's office. I paid the fee to have the Marshall's Office serve the papers because I'll get the money back in my award(along with all other court costs...) when I win. Here's a link the the Clark County Small Claims Court so that you can file, too:
2ND ITEM: I have also filed a complaint with the Nevada Attorney General's Office, Bureau of Consumer Protection Division. Forms are available to download, fill out, and mail from this website:
Send the A.G.'s Office a copy of everything you received in your Credit Card package, er, uh, I mean "Travel Package" (what a joke, eh?), including a copy of the cancelled check if you have it. Mine was an electronic check that they printed and then they submitted it to my bank.
3RD ITEM: The Federal "Do Not Call List" has a complaint form that you can fill out online. If they get enough of these complaints, they will fine these scumbags BIGTIME (as in 5 figures- $10,000+/occurance). You must first check to make sure your number has been in their database for at least 90 days. Fortunately, mine has been there for 9 months. Here's the link to file your Federal "Do Not Call" Complaint:
Here's my advice (although I'm just an "average Joe", and not a lawyer...):
File all three items mentioned above. If ENOUGH OF US GET INVOLVED and file, then:
1) The Nevada Attorney General will sieze all of their assets (computers, phone systems, copiers, bank accounts, etc) and we'll get our money back when the Attorney General is done prosecuting them and auctions off all of their stuff,
2) The U.S. Federal Government will asses BIG FINES so they won't have anymore startup capital, and,
3) You will get your money from small claims court when they don't show up to contest it!
I'd like to see some other legal suggestions from others who have initiated some sort of legal prosecution. KEEP US UPDATED!!!
