Guess who is hidding from a Rip Off Report investigator?
Travelbridge Internation, Inc. ripoff dishonest frauldulent theft of commissions earned by members. cheated employees and screwed the customers even more victimized many consumers tricked and lied to us consumer fraud ripoff ripoff business from hell Scottsdale Arizona .....
Thousands of people across the country paid amounts as low as $1500.00 to as high as $8000.00 to be "associates" of this Travelbridge Travel company. They were promised low price travel, and 50% of the commission paid to Travelbridge by vendors, would go to the "associates" after their completed trips.
The boys in the back that PUMP you for your MONEY$$$$
This company targeted the senior population in the country because they travel more frequently. Offices opened up all over the country to suck these people into their web. Once they got the money from the "associates", the offices suddenly closed and only an email address was left for the "associates" to do their booking, etc.
A letter was sent out to the "associates" on February 20, 2003 informing the members that Travelbridge has not paid any commissions for the past 6 months, and probably never will. Their excuse, "the threat of war". They should all hang their heads in shame for using that excuse. They also admit to having no money, and have the nerve to ask the "associates" to stand by them, and of course pay their yearly dues of $150.00.
All the commissions earned by the "associates" have been stolen and spent by Travelbridge. I searched the web by typing just travelbridge in the box. Up came hundreds of lawsuits and complaints from all over the country. States have taken them to court and sued them for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
To the many of "associates" who are owed money for their commissions. We have learned the hard way that this company has been allowed to open and close offices all over the country. It is about time that this company is shut down forever. If anyone in the country is contacted to join this company, with the promise of getting your money back by commission, RUN! don't walk, to the nearest BBB.
In Las Vegas alone, they have used the names;
Travelbridge Air Land and Sea
Travelbridge International, Inc.
Las Vegas, Nevada
STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business? Click here to understand more of what consumers and business alike are saying about the BBB. You decide. ..Remember. The BBB membership is not earned, it's paid for!
