My husband and I purchased into Travelbridge in the Dallas/ Las Colinas office just about one year ago. We are feeling ripped off now. They promised things which aren't happening. First of all, they promised prices on trips and condos well below the prices available at travel agencies- that is a joke!!! They offered training classed which were informative, but nothing worth the price of the membership. We spent over $2,000 and haven't gotten much in return. Yesterday, in my mailbox was a notice from them asking for more money if I want to keep up my membership- what a ripoff!!! Another false promise when we were purchasing was that they would open an office in Plano,Tx. which is where I live, unfortunately those plans fell through.
I would like to know if there is anyway to still get in on the refund suit for the state of Texas or if a new one can be started. We purchased in April 2001. Suggestions on how to take action would be appreciated. Sincerely, Laura in Plano,Tx

If you haven't requested the refund from the AG's settlement by now then you are too late. Even if you had requested the refund it is unlikely that you would have gotten more than 10%-20% of what you paid since there was a cap on the total amount to be refunded.

Best bet is to file your own lawsuit in small claims court. It will cost you about $65. The basis for the suit would be the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act which makes it illegal to use deceptive practices to entice someone to sign a contract.

You will need some evidence or testimony to make your case. In a civil suit you don't have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt...just that there was a high probability they made a false claim. The Texas AG suit could help support that.

Travelbridge will probably claim that you received some value since you attended classes etc and they may try to reduce the refund based on that.

Beyond the lawsuit, I would do everything I could think of to harm Travelbridge in terms of bad publicity and financially. Picket their office, encourage others to file lawsuits, call TV stations and newspapers, and most importantly make sure that Travelbridge is kept up to date with what you are doing. Write and tell them everything you plan to do. Be a pest and make sure they know you are a troublemaker.

Good luck and write me at nocman58@yahoo.com if you have any questions.
