 Beware of this GVN company in Palm Harbor, Florida. First, you are invited (zeroed in on because of your income) to take part in a consumer test of an android, which is actually a ruse to get you to sit through a lengthy presentation on a travel club. After an hour of that, you are led to waiting sales people who pressure sell for the next hour about the "wonderful" savings...after that you are zeroed in on by this slimy, grease ball CLOSER who continues the high pressure tactics. ONLY after all that, you are finally given a certificate which you have to call or apply online for the android....then you WAIT and WAIT and WAIT. Come to find out there are several more hoops to jump through that you are not told about...THEN after two months and my own persistence I finally received the android with NO name or manufacturer listed. It is a piece of junk which is incorrectly configured or programed to pick up the internet connections through wifi. TOTAL waste of time AND to top that off, the slimy salesman with a big wedding ring and spoke about his 7 children thought it would be appropriate to hit on me and say I should take him on a vacation. HE WAS ABSOLUTELY serious...insanely inappropriate and GROSS. The impression I was left with is this organization is comprised of shifty sales people, trained in high pressure sales and big, fake smiles that hide their lies. My recommendation is to avoid these grifters who blew in to town...they are predators looking for their next meal. ALL smoke and mirrors with creepy, greasy personality sales people. DON'T waste your time.

We also went to GNV presentation Palm Harbor FL

AUTHOR: Lee - ()

airline voucher for 2 to use in a years time but, auctully wasted our time and gas and the Incentive + Bonus gift will not be worth the attachments.

Bottom line; FALSE ADVERTISMENT, FALSE INCENTIVES, PREDATORES, &We received a notifcation in the mail stateing that we won a Round trip Airlines Vochure for 2 worth $41400 to use in 1 year time good for departure from any major city in the U.S.

I had to call a 800# by a certin date in order to reserve.  when I called, I was explained that this was a new travel agency and this was a way for them to introduce themself's and advertise by word of mouth.

Ii was assured that this was not a "Time share" sales, and no presure sales, not required to purchase anything, & no strings attached.  so, I made an appointment.  I was "Gaurenteed" to receive a vouchure for the round trip airfare.

So we went to the Presentation, it was to be 90 min. it turned out to be like 2 hours, then a sales person was assigned to each couple.  they wanted $14,000 for a lifetime membership. but, the "one time" (today) contract would have a $4,000 discount for a total of $10,000. for a 2 week a year package, plus $289 per year Activation fee.( same as "time share maintenance fee) plus you have to pay for the week stay for $159.00  plus any taxes, fees, port fees, etc;

When we got to the sales desk.. I requested that we would like to get meterial for future consideration.  the rep responded, "just go to the website" then the downgrades begin..   we were approched by another sales person who offered additional discounts, and or reductions of plans & prices.

I firmly responded " I AM NOT GOING TO COMMITT ON ANYTHING TODAY!"  and he kept trying...Then he came at us with a "TRIAL PERIOD" for 3 years @ $3000 with a down payment of $325.00 and $112 per month.

Again, I stated I am not entering a contrct on ANY AMOUNT OF TIME unless I have a chance to check out and reserch this company..  which was not provided and kept from email confirmation.  they used different names of this so called travel agency until you get there then it's reveled to you "Global Travel Network"

Needless to say, the Incentive list, that you have to choose your gift has strings attached!  you are to send in the registration and choose among 7 choices which are attached to a Hotel, cruise, Condo stay, which you have to pay for and a deposit to secure your so called "free airline tickets" plus any taxes, surcharges, airlines taxes & surcharges, etc;

We were there for 3 hours and being scamed to belive that we were getting a $1400 in airfare voucher.
