*Author of original report: Re. Recent Fraud Report filed with you
*Consumer Comment: PLEASE HELP
I've just discovered I've been scammed maliciously and premeditatedly defrauded out of $898 U.S. dollars, so need to know the truth really urgently about this company. I've been an international private investigator for 30 years and dealt a lot in high level public health and legal matters. This, however, has me highly incensed, it's is now personal. I trusted these 'people', as have countless others I've recently discovered. Barely a quarter hour after our two-hour phone call and my attempted ones back to them as explained below, did some rapid research into them. I smell litigation coming in for these filthy criminals.
In short I had a pop-up appear on my pc screen saying I'd won a $3,000 dollar 'spending spree' with the below company, which was part of the/a package deal holiday to Orlando, with hotels etc. In the early small hours that night I rang their UK number on the ad (which I was told was diverted to the U.S.) when I spoke with the first man. I spoke to three in this order: Edward Green, Jeremy Whitehall and Dennis Shoemaker, the latter being from their verification department. It was pretty much the last of my/our small pension savings but I decided to go for it as I desperately needed a holiday.
At 62 I've not really had a proper holiday in 30-odd years and they did, sound very sincere. It's the first time anything like this has ever happened to me, so I'm not a happy person. The phone call lasted about two hours, paid by them and this was what happened. Talked with endless talker Edward for about half hour or so, who then put me on to Jeremy who also talked endlessly, took my bank details and I paid by Visa, followed by Dennis weirdly not just confirming my details, but recording our conversation. Why, did they want to record anything, if all was above-board and they a legitimate business?
They were quick to take my money before sending the itinerary, so it wasn't until shortly afterwards I had serious doubts. They gave me a UK (so they said) number to ring: 0808-1203638, which I tried the night this happened at about 3.40am, because they got the last bit of the address wrong on my verification at the bottom of the address which needed immediate correction. This should have read Southern Ireland, I repeated that to Dennis who answered me confirming it but, as you see, reads GBR. I tried the number but it said it wasn't recognised.
I tried removing the first zero dialling with the international 0044 UK code, even though Belfast is UK, no answer, ringing or engaged. Alarm bells started ringing. They also gave me a Southern Ireland number 00353-1486-4057 which I rang next day at 1.05pm lunch hour, and got a 'number not in usemessage'. Tried the Eire one again, time then being 15.35pm and immediately started to be force-fed some more rubbish advertising spiel, wasting my time, again, and stealing my credit, so I hung up and started writing this complaint. If that alone is not an overt premeditated fraud, then this surely means litigation to stop others having this happen to them.
As they are on You Tube heavily advertising, which I know as a private investigator is, largely, a fraud, then we must look further. I went on Net to try and find reviews and, was this a scam? I was deeply disturbed by reports saying they were full-blown scammers, yet they have some videos on You Tube appearing to show satisfied customers who didn't look or sound ecstatic at all. I asked myself, were they just models posing for their ads, to promote sales? It's easy to arrange fraudulent adverts at the end of the day, adding to their deceptions. By 5.00am and extremely tired I decided to sleep.
I'm contacting you for some advice and help in dealing with them, very firmly. I see the larger picture of emotional and psychological distress, misery to folks worldwide from what I've rapidly gleaned, feeling that a precedent should be set immediately by powerful litigation lawyers to bring a case for the people for their unlawful psychological abuse, fraud and trauma. It's 100% unacceptable.
Some points troubling me are: I bookmarked every page sent to me via the ad including the winning "Congratulations" announcement with claim number. When I went to open the "Congratulations" page earlier, the original page had disappeared and instead now throws up a page called Priceside with a Net address of priceside.net, thus completely removing my claim number, proof of which I wanted to retain. What other deception is this? Their itinerary for me page opened OK, so I selected all, copied and pasted it below, but it's weird, coz instead of being the full colour image with big green ticks down the side, it's got red crosses. Is this because the images can't be imported? I genuinely haven't a clue about how the Net works I'm just a simple legal writer-reporter, to a very large degree.
If I were to say I'm red with rage it would be an accurate statement. However, my rage is more of a controlled, calm, clear-thinking, cold calculated unyielding prosecutorial stance against these wicked parasites. I found out shortly after my monies had been stolen by this company who then sent me their itinerary, another highly disturbing Fact. If, I had won a prize, then what was the rush to pay for it? Surely any time at the winner's convenience is ethical and honest, is it not? I did in Fact tell them I had sunk most of our savings last year into a large motorhome I'm refurbishing, around 15,000, to sell on for profit, and wasn't that well off. ( As you see from reading the itinerary it says:
"Your promotional vacation package includes ALL of the following": In the list it says: "4 days and 3 nights in the Bahamas" ****Transportation not included. Cruise option available for additional port and processing fees per person". What's with the stars bit after the word Bahamas above, has something been deliberately deleted? This is outright Fraud, Coercion, Harassment and Intimidation, all criminal offences, all needing urgently addressing, in the light of on-going complaints.
If I and my partner were, to spend 4 days and 3 nights there as part of the deal, how the blazes are we supposed to get there? This was not part of our deal. It's outright criminal fraud. Coercing, which is forcing people to pay for a cruise to get there, is not only illegal, it is dirty, tacky, immoral, totally criminal. Easy to see where their lascivious psyches are, eyes and minds fulla dollars with no integrity, merely just little-boy criminal behaviour. I/we feel totally harassed, intimidated, utterly defrauded by these people who, through their deviousness and deception, elicited pretty much, the last of my/our precious and very valuable (to us) pension savings, on top of their psychological abuse.
I/we wish to bring immediate criminal litigation proceedings against them with your help please. Not only for what we consider to be outright fraud and theft, but for the now continuing emotional and psychological abuse to both of us. I object, powerfully and legally to the likes of these dirty little vermin playing with my disabled partner's mind and mine. Having to write this, as racing around on the Net to do research on a firm I shouldn't have had to, is also stealing, My time. This has and is causing me and my partner a lot of emotional distress and I'm not, putting up with it.
The longer this goes on, the more their unlawful abuse to us continues, the greater exponentially grows my claim. My partner is already deeply disturbed and upset by their disgusting behaviour, it's totally unacceptable. If you know of others in the same situation with this company, and I'm sure you do, it would be helpful for you to inform them and for us all to now unite rapidly, bringing a class action lawsuit against them immediately. By following in my lead against the CEO's unlawful psychological abuse to us all, they all have a story to tell. This action, their live video stories, should be collected as One and be widely broadcast worldwide on You Tube as well as anywhere else that does human stories concerning these criminals to bring them down, stop them, and rapidly bring them into line.
These films should be copied and the videos quickly put into the hands of the litigation lawyers as well, proving their/our genuine grievances in both a court of law and on Internet. No escape for the wicked.
I have articulated our own grievances here, which is as close to a video as it gets, cutting through their advertising spiel and will be seeking a substatntial claim settlement for the two of us. Initially, I demand our monies be immediately returned, with the interest it could have made in the bank, to be returned to my bank account in Eire where it came from. The CEO's of this company had best be aware of my macrobiotic legal abilities as a 30-years private volunteer-to-the-public, unpaid freelance Human Rights lawyer-prosecutor. I have some prosecutorial questions I will draw up shortly to put to these 'people', which I demand full and complete answers to, without any circumvention of them whatsoever.
I'm doing this on behalf of those affected worldwide by this obscene company, ensuring they get full financial compensatory Restitution for their grievance. That, is Justice. We're all sick of and from greedy CEO's and others dishonesty, dirty liars! I've also copied some Internet web details for you to check, most recent is October just gone. I trust this unbreakable stance of mine will help and inspire all affected globally to come out of the woodwork, claim in the litigation lawsuit and help others.
To close, for now, I give you my UK mobile phone number 0044-79-3417-4474. Thanks for reading this report and I do have personal references should you need any.
Best wishes to you all - Chris
