This is what I submitted to the federal Trade Commission. I did tons of research on this company that took 598.00 from me on 2/18/2009.

This company is a fraud. After the company took my money for the cancun vacation, I called and could not reach anyone. I then researched the company on the internet and found the following scam reports on the company which is now operating as www.CMBTT.com. I brought the vacation under sandos vacations.

Here is the letter that I sent to the company:

Sent to website contact form: http://www.cmbtt.com/shop/contact_us.php?action=success

Hi, I booked a vacation (confirmation number CT02180957) with your company and now I cant reach anyone. You charged my bank account for 598.00 on 2/18/2009. When I called today (2/23/09) I was told to refax my signature for the payment form because it was ripped off during the fax. Yet, you charged my bank account for 598.00 on 2/18/2009. This makes no sense. Your company appears to be listed on the rip off report as not legitimate. I have been hung up on several times. I would appreciate if you refunded my money immediately. I should not have to refax anything SINCE YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN THE MONEY FROM MY ACCOUNT after receiving the initial fax. Plus if I resend you my signature listed on the credit card reciept that a manager asked me to send in today from the phone number 407 472-6728 form, you could deduct more money out of my account.

On one scam report listed under ISPgeeks.com, the owner was listed of www.CMBTT.com:

Company Name: www.cmbtt.com
Cancun & Mexico Bureau of Travel and Tourism

Previous websites: sandosvacations.com, cancunrus.com

Known web registrant: Edward Turner
450 Pinecone Lane
Bagdad, Kentucky 40003
Phone listed in one scam report: 502 296-4950

Other associated numbers for this company: 888 318 0447, 866-961 1819 , 407 472-6728. On february 23, 2009 a manager called me from the 407 number asking me to refax my debit card form with a signature. I didnt do this since they had already deducted 598.00 from my account. THis made no sense. She said half of the fax was cut off.

Fax where I sent the signed form for my payment of $199.00 x 3 for three people is fax number: 877-708-1730.

Please catch these people immediately. They are ripping off so many people and they keep changing their names. After researching the topic I found the following names for the same people:
www.CMBTT.com, cancunrus.com, sandosvacations.com, Cancun vacations. This is what all of the rip off reports have in common. They are all faxing the signed payment form to the same fax number which is 877-708-1730.

Please shut them down!

We should all file a class action suit on this company.
You can reach me at (((REDACTED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES))).net. Thanks! Concerned consumer who wants everyone to fight back!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Royal Elite Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: VC32 - ()

Thanks for the heads-up! This company is somehow related with the Royal Elite Timeshare Resorts in Mexico, which are known for using misleading tactics to sell timeshares. I went to a sales pitch there, they were very nice until we say NO! then we were trated very badly, i would never go there again. We are not the only ones, you should check out this other forum  from Mexican Timeshare Solutions with more complaints made to these companies:

#2 Consumer Comment

Same experience and this is what I did to get my money back...

AUTHOR: Fightbacksf!!! - (U.S.A.)

1. called my credit card company
2. contacted Better Business Buerau (BBB.org)
3. contacted the state of Florida

here's a link to my experience:

and i have the email addresses to all 3 dishonest people whom i dealt with.

According to the BBB, they never responded to the BBB's inqueries.

The state of FL said I couldn't get my money back because their original company name Travel Comm (which supposedly ran out of business a year or so ago) was out of 'back up' money; which is money set aside in case the business gets sued. So based on this alone, Travel Comm aka CMBTT was in a HUGE law suite by the time i disputed the charges. The BBB told me this as well.

Just to let you know, I paid $600 for a vacation and then I had to do an 'upgrade'; another $300; because I had called too late to book a hotel. Since I had already paid for the $600 a year or so ago; it is a bit late to get that money back. BUT HELL NO am i losing the $300; which was much more recent. Read my experience with the above link.

My credit card company fought for me and got the $300 back...unfortunately, I couldn't get the original $600 since they ran out of 'back up' money.

i still would suggest doing the above steps and spread the word.
