Complaint Review: Trip Assurance
Trip Assurance475 Central Ave. 3rd Floor St.Petersburg, Florida United States of America
Trip Assurance I filled out a form for a Free Cruise Vacation to the Bahamas, but could not get the brochures without paying a fee upfront. 5th Avenue has the same address 475 Central Ave. 3rd Floor, St.Petersburg, Florida
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Not True
*Author of original report: Winning the so called Free Trip to the Bahamas
*UPDATE Employee: TALK ABOUT UNFAIR!
I called and listened to a recording saying there was some cost to this, but still it was a good deal.
So the next morining I called and got a live person, I was told that I had to send $99.98 now to get the brochures and secure the trip or I could lost it.
Then I was going to billed twice at the rate of $69.00 and $119.00 twice for port of call fees.
The brochures arrived a few days later and I noticed that there was not any business cards or a picture of the agent. Just brochures and some made up forms to sign. One could get these brochures at any travel place.
It was then that I decided to check it out and found the someone had the same experience but lost even more than me. Only the business name it was under is 5th Avenue, with the exact same address as Trip Assurance 475 Central Ave. 3rd Floor, St. Petersburg, FL. 33701.
But I live in Georgia, I wonder how they got the card that I filled out so fast.
I called my bank, had to cancel my card and try to get my monies back, or the bank will proceed with fraud.
