In February of 2012, I paid Black Tie Affair Travel Group $1, 924.00 for two

trips, Paso Robles/Hearst Castle trip that was to take place the weekend of

August 11-12, 2012 and also the Bayou Classic trip that was scheduled for

November 22-26, 2012. Both trips needed a certain number of participants to go

ahead as scheduled. The Paso Robles trip in August did not meet its number of

participants and was cancelled and that time I received a refund with no issue

from Black Tie. 

As the date approached for the Bayou Classic trip there was no communication from Black

Tie. Prior to every trip there was to be a tour orientation meeting.  By October when I had received no information regarding the trip or orientation it was becoming quite clear that this trip would not take place as well. I began asking Mr. Jerome Cannon, a managing member of Black Tie that I had been interacting with on 10/29/12 , when I could expect my refund and received no response.  I, along with Ms. Nikki Bush, who was to be my roommate on this trip, began trying to contact Mr. Cannon via the phone and email  to no avail. I emailed Mr. Cannon on 11/12, 11/16 and 11/20.

By this time I am irate and concerned that my money has been stolen since the email I received from Mr. Cannon on 02/05/12  stated that he received the payments for my trip in full and my money would be held in a trust account until the trips took place. If my money was indeed held in a trust account and not misappropriated then why isnt it being returned to me? Mr. Cannon actually returned one of my

many phone calls on 11/20/12 and said that he understood my concern and that he would make things right in 15 business days, 15 business days came and went and I have not heard a single word from Mr. Cannon. I emailed him again on 12/13.

On 12/17 I contacted Mr.  Louis Harris, another managing member asking for my money back, no response. I called and emailed Mr. Cannon again on 01/14/13, no response. Finally, on 01/16/13 I attempted to contact Ms. Ginger V. Cannon, spouse of Mr. Jerome Cannon, again no

response.  Mr. Cannon and the other managing members of A Black Tie Affair Travel do not respond to my attempts to communicate with them.  

To date, I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, a Seller of Travel Complaint with the State of California Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General, filed a claim with the Travel Consumer Restitution Fund and the District Attorney of Orange County.

Clearly the funds given to Mr. Cannon were misappropriated so I am filing this

rip off report to hopefully keep others from being ripped off by Black Tie Affair Travel.
