Peder Seglund and his so called company, Discount Global Travel, have taken $2500 from us and have not provided the services promised in the contract.

In July 2006, we booked a trip through his company and signed a statement with provisions for a discounted fare. Now that the final payment is due, we are required to pay the full price for the trip, or cancel. This is the icing on the cake, as we have not been provided the services promised since the beginning of the contract.

We have tried to contact Peder and DGT but none of the phone numbers or e-mail addresses are valid. The Better Business Bureau has sent letters and they get returned because DGT isn't at that location any more.

We have been in touch with Channel 7 News and Fox News. We have given the BBB, Channel 7 and Channel 2 - and now you - information on how to contact a Peder Seglund at AquiEssence/Pure Pouch Purified Water in Fraser, 877.293.5477 or 248.210.8703.

Peder Seglund of Discount Global Travel is a thief - he hired people and taught them to be thieves - he has no morals - and is probably, to this day, getting away with cheating people out of their hard earned money! He needs to be stopped!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Transfer

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

Companies go out of business every day. Instead of just closing when the company could no longer stay afloat DGT gave clients the option to use Mid American Connections (who received all of DGT's assets to continue fulfillment) or recently also offered clients Castaways which has similar benefits to DGT's. I was with the company for years with many satisfied clients.

It is unfortunate that DGT went out of business but at least clients were given the option to transfer benefits to 2 different fulfillment agencies. Peder isn't hiding as Geri says. Far from it. He is still assisting any clients that have questions or need assistance with the transfer.

DGT is out of business. It happens to alot of companies. Use the free trial of the other fulfillment services and if you like them continue, if not other options for fulfillment will be offered as they come available.

Transfer is Just Another Rip-off Ploy

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

DGT had previously given their client list to Mid American Connection who is a reputable company working in the interest of the client. Castways is just another way to scam you out of more money! The so called President of Castaways won't even return phone calls! And the letter they sent telling people about the transfer of clients has a DGT return address. The letter is signed Peter Henrik - aka Peder Seglund. Do not fall into this trap - keep your money!

Transfer of service

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

DGT is out of business and has transferred all clients to Castaways Vacations. They can be reached at 866-729-6400. They are offering a trial of their service for all who are interested in transferring their benefits.

HE IS AT IT AGAIN - THIS TIME USING US POSTAL SERVICE

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

Yes, he is trying to con people again! Yesterday we received a letter from DGT (hey, arent't they bankrupt? - how can they pay for postage). The letter states that DGT joined forces with Castaways Vacation Club and that We need to send them $159.00 by May 1, 2007 in order to have our contract with DGT remain active. The envelope also contained a membership application with an AUTHORIZATION FOR RECURRING ELECTRONIC DEBITS FOR ANNUAL DUES PAYMENTS and asked for our credit card numbers, name of our bank and our bank account numbers. He not only took our intial investment now he wants to steal from us each and every year!

Here's an intersting point; the letter is signed by PETER HENRIK and CRIS DIXON. Apparently Peder has changed how he spells his first name and is using his middle name as his last name. CHRIS DIXON has been involved with DGT all along as the ex-employees (who were also cheated and lied to) know her and her boyfriend who owns Castaways Travel.

DO NOT SEND THESE PEOPLE ANY MONEY - INSTEAD GET A LAWYER!

managers are not at fault

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

in response to an ex employee, the managers working for discount global travel were not aware of what exactly was going on with the company. our paychecks were bouncing right along with the employees, we were doing what we were to told to do, hoping things would turn around for the better. obviously this didnt happen and for that i feel bad

Peder is Selling Water!

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

I called the toll free number for AquiEssence - the person answering the phone verified that Peder Seglund is the President. She also verified that he previously owned a travel agency. Peder is found - go get him!

Fight Back

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

Everyone who fell for this scam in Ohio, Michigan, and California, must fight back!! Their must be some kind of leagall action to take. There are thousands of you out there to stand strong and get your money back!Many attorneys will have a first session with you at NO COST. You need to get in touch with eachother via, e-mail, phone, or fax to build a strong case againt this man. Peder, and the people who were managing all the offices knew what they were doing from day one. (How can you live with yourselfs?) The sales team were trained very good to sell this membership. I (x-employee) was very good at my job. It wasn't until my paychecks started to bounce, and excuses where thrown around about why they were bouncing, and why their was no $ in the funds to pay the employees. This was happening to all sale associates. Customers would call the office about not getting their gas cards. That's because their were no gas cards!! I quite dgt (others followed) because we all thought something wrong was going on around here. This man has to live with the guilt and shame of ripping people off. His child someday find out all about his dad. How will Peder feel then?? That his son knows his dad is a ripp off artist? I hope all of you get your money back. Some how, someway. Good Luck. Sincerely

Discount Global Travel, Peder Seglund

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

Peder Seglund and his so called company Discount Global Travel has cheated us out of $2500.

We have a contract for discounted travel and/or rebates for discounted travel. We have not received the services promised since the beginning of the contract.

The icing on the cake is that we signed an agreement with DGT for a discounted trip. Now the final payment is due and we have to pay the full price or lose the reservation.

We cannot contact Peder or DGT as the telephone numbers, e-mail and physical address are now bogus.

We have contacted the Better Business Bureau, Channel 7 News and Channel 2 News.

We have given them - and now you - the information for a Peder Seglund who is the president of another business - AquiEssence/Pure Pouch Purified Water, in Fraser, MI, 877.293.5477 or 248. 210.8703.

Peder Seglund is a thief - he hired people and taught them how to be thieves - he has no morals and must be stopped from cheating people - including retirees on a fixed income!
