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 Partners Travelbridge International, Inc. Patti Las Vegas, Nevada
U.S.A. 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!

Travelbridge skips town!! ripoff to employees

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

Travelbridge has closed their office and did not even notifiy any of the members. After moving into their third office in Las Vegas in November, they have disappeared. You can not even contact them. Gone with them, are the commissions owed us.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Only one way to get even

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

PLEASE DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH TRAVELBRIDGE.

THE BUSINESS IS FAILING. THEY CAN BARLEY MEET PAYROLL AND DO NOT HAVE MUCH BACK UP FUNDS.

KEN LACEY (CURRENTLY LIVING IN HAWAII) ONCE A PARTNER IS NOW SCAMING AS MUCH MONEY FROM THE TOP AS POSSIBLE. JEFF WEBB PAYS HIMSELF PLENTY .



THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY FOR TRAVELBRIDGE TO STAY IN BUSINESS IS IF PEOPLE KEEP BOOKING CRUISES, AND VACATION PACKAGES. ALSO DO NOT PAY THE $150.00 ANNULAL DUES.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

in defence of bbb of phoenix

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

I have good reason to believe that travel bridge international( travel bridge partners, travel bridge Dot com inc etc] attempted to sue the better Business Bureau of Phoenix Arizona. The reason they did this was because of the repeatedly negative reports on the company's behavior!



Needless say they lost the suit and the better Business Bureau of Phoenix have continually continued to give the company a negative report.



Unfortunately the better Business Bureau has made multiple complaints to the company ,to mend their ways, with no results.



I have on many occasions complained to the fraud department of the attorney-general of Arizona who have dismissed my complaints. My complaints have been documented chapter and verse.



I imployed since the services of a lawyer from the prestigious law firm who has apparently written to the attorney-general of Arizona to report the fraudulent behavior of this company. So far I have heard nothing back on this subject.



I cannot understand how company can still exist with so many complaints and that no one, apparently seems to be able to do anything about it.



They're still in business in Scottsdale and advertising various things [cruises etc).

The Scottsdale civil court awarded the judgment of $5,600 by default., against travelbridge.

The company failed to appear for a debtors examination and were held in contempt of court. And all attempts to garnish and their account in the Bank of America has produced nothing, because of their deceitful manipulation of various bank accounts in various different company names.



In conclusion I would feel that until everybody complains to their appropriate attorney-general's fraud department, and in sufficient numbers , then maybe the powers ,that are supposed to protect us , [senior citizens] and other people, maybe able to have this company from hell shut down permanently Yours sincerely, Ian Grant whyte md
