Since I was also the victim of this $369 fraud, I have started a complaint with the NV Attorney General's Office and small claims court.
They claimed to "tape record" the sale, so I asked to hear it (and turned on my tape recorder, too). The high-pressure portion (where all the representative mentions is a 2,500 MasterCard) is NOT RECORDED! Just the actual bank information, ans also when they "slip into the sale agreement a very-quick 2-second mention of a "travel package" and then very quickly move on to mention the "Value Card" that they have been talking about for the previous 10 minutes. These guys are good at what they do.
I asked DHL (similar to Fedex and UPS) to send me the actual pickup document for the "travel package" that I received. It DID NOT originate from 9811 W. Chrleston Blvd! It originated from a company called "CCFI Inc., at 2926 Lake East Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89117. I don't know who this "CCFI Inc." is, but it seems if Centric group was a legitimate Travel Club, they would be using their own street address, or a post office box. Since they are only interested in scamming people out of their $369, they are trying to hide!
One of the "travel vacations" was an offer to attend a timeshare seminar! Read the fine print on those "travel vouchers", ladies and gentlemen! Some "free" vacation...
The other was a "4-day" cruise, but it actually involves a 1-day
cruise on the ship, then you disembark and have to pay for 2 or 3 days in a hotel in the Bahamas, then another 1-day cruise back home. Some "free" vacation!...
