After numerous attempts since Sept. of 2005, to obtain a refund for the $100.00 "Good Faith Refundable Deposit," a check was finally received by me dated January 6, 2006, and postmarked January 12, 2006. The check was drawn on Platinum Bank, Brandon FL 33511 by MINI VACATIONS, INC., TRAVEL AGENT ACCOUNT, P.O. Box 223, Brandon, FL, 33509.

After cashing this check, it was returned by our bank marked "ACCOUNT CLOSED, DO NOT PRESENT AGAIN."

Attempts to reach MVI using (800) 566-8281 gives a recorded message to try the call again, and another MVI number (813) 769-4203 number informs that the number has been "disconnected or is no longer in service."

In attempting to obtain a refund, I spoke with Jane, Connie, and lastly, Jay on Jan. 3, 2006.

I intend to file complaints with the state and local Attorney Generals in Florida and would urge others to do the same.

#2 Author of original report

Refund Check Received from MVI dated 01/06/06

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

We sent a $100.00 in "good faith" deposits to MVI March 21, 2005. After our application for a trip was returned for correction of slight details more than once, the offered flight times seen to be unworkable and the requests for more money to upgrade rampant, we began to "smell a rat". We began requesting a deposit refund in September 2005, and after numerous calls, and unfulfilled promises of it being sent, we finally received a the refund check from MVI referred to in our 03/07/06 report. It was returned, of course, marked ACCOUNT CLOSED, DO NOT PRESENT AGAIN.

I cannot discern the signature other than the first initials which appear to be LBE.
