International Travel Network - Marketing Solutions This company told me that this was a great opportunity and I was getting in on a great business from the ground up. I would double my fee money that I supplied for my website and the business packet information.I was guaranteed at least 1000-1500 hits a day. I could go on a cruise and recruit others with no problem and the business would just continue to grow and make substantial money. Herndon Virginia

This company was fraudulent and promised things that they could not deliver. They told me that this could be a great business for anyone because you could help the consumer with getting cheaper airflights, cheaper hotel stays, cheaper cruises, and cheaper car rental. I was told that by having a web page with my own information it would help others to see that you would be cheaper than orbitz, travelosity, or any other business like that.

I also was told that I could make a substantial amount of money. I was told that I could pay off my student loan of $28,000, and my house which is $114,000 in 2-6 months, free and clear. I was told that there was a website for a back office for more information and help for the business. I was given phone numbers and email addresses to get in touch with customer service to help me out when I needed it. I also was given the names of 2 men that were the president or representative of the company. The phone numbers worked just a few times and then they were always busy no matter what time I called. Then I got a recording that told me the numbers were no longer in service.

The website that I was given does not work, and my website for my business does not work as well. There was never a back office because there was no way of getting any information for this business. I was able to use my site 1 time to make a hotel reservation in Oklahoma, but when I made the reservation it set it up to be at another hotel in Oklahoma and it was a smoking room, which I specifically said no smoking.

I would like for everyone involved with these 2 companies to get what is coming to them. I believe that they should serve some jail time and everyone that they scammed should be entitled to get all of their money back. They also told me that if you did not make the money that they said that you would that you would get your money back in 24 months no questions asked. They charged a fee per month for a maintence fee for the updating of your website, but when I did speak to the representative about that I wasn't making any money and that I couldn't pay the fee, then they told me they would just waive it for 6-12 months.

I have tried numerous times to get in touch with them and I had no luck with doing that since the beginning of buying into this travel business.The first person I spoke with was David Erickson and he told me about the business and asked me if I like cruises and liked to travel and that they could send me on a cruise and I could just talk to people and give away my business cards and that was all I would have to do and the business would speak for itself.

I tried to call him back again after I had agreed to get into the travel business and he told me that I needed to get in touch with Jeff Evans so that he could make me a website for my business. I paid the money for the business and the website on good faith and later found out that David Erickson was also Brandon Craig aka. Jeff Evans never returned his phone calls even though he had a policy of returning phone calls within 24 hours, this was a lie also.

This needs to be addressed and taken care of and they need to not ever be able to scam anyone out of money again. Everything about these 2 companies were and are phony. So beware!!

BUT WHAT THEY DON'T TELL YOU IS HOW TO GET PEOPLE TO GO TO YOUR WEBSITE AND NOT 1,000 OTHERS WITH THE SAME STUFF

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

THESE PEOPLE WERE SO SUCCESSFUL IN CONNING PEOPLE THAT THERE ARE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF THESE WEBSITES IN THE WILDERNESS THAT IS THE INTERNET...

HOW DO YOU GET THE PEOPLE TO STOP BY YOUR INTERNET WEBSITE AND GET TOURS FROM YOU AND NOT ALL OF THESE COUNTLESS OTHER PEOPLE.....

HOW DO YOU DIVERSIFY YOUR PRODUCT SO THAT PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO USE YOUR WEBSITE ABOVE ALL OTHERS?

CAN YOU CUT THE PRICES. GET THEM A BETTER DEAL, SAVE THEM TIME... WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR THEM THAT THE OTHER PEOPLE CAN'T.

PRECISELY MY POINT,YOU ALL WERE NOT EXACTLY RIPPED OFF.

BUT I THINK YOU WERE GIVEN A COMPASS AND A CANTEEN OF WATER AND THEN TURNED LOOSE IN AN ENTIRE INTERNET DESERT TO FEND FOR YOURSELVES.
