I used all of the sugestions on RIP OFF to get my bank to coperate in contacting these crooks. I've gotten all of my money back sxcept for the 59.95 but I haven't given up. Any phone number you get hit #, #. it will take you to their operators. They don't tell you on the first call they are repasenting 3 other branches of their own companies. When you try to cancel, you have to call all of the numbers. You don't have the numbers until they take money out of your account. It is listed on your bank statement. Some banks don't want to deal with this mess unless you demand them to. No one at my bank knew what the Federal Regulation E form was.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Names have changed again

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

As of February 28th, 2006 Agents Travel Network is now called Travel Agents Direct and most of the phone numbers have changed. They still have the main customer service number as 1-800-853-9982 and the office number is still 727-471-0276.

They are located at 8751 Ulmerton Road, Largo, FL 33771 NOT the address they give you over the phone. The address they give (the seminole one) is to the travel agency that supposedly takes care of the free vacation which is another lie. It isn't free at all. The $400 in airline vouchers they offer only cover a small fraction of what the ticket costs. You have to fork over everything else yourself. The gas vouchers they offer are only paid out in $10 increments per month. This is why thye say it's good for a whole year.

Also, the Florida Passport the $149 hotel accomodations to Orlando & Fort Lauderdale (time share program) is now called "Floridaway". The calling card "Teleflex" was changed to "PRISM Communications". It sounds like "prison" when you're selling it over the phone. lol

These changes were made because like in the past, many people catch on sooner or later and start complaining. The manager even admitted in a meeting right before the change took place that it had to be made because every year or so "things have to look different" in order to keep going.

Sorry to say, as a former employee I knew the product was foul after a while. I found out that the discount travel card they send you has to be returned to them otherwise you'll get charged. As for the calling card (Teleflex, Prism etc), if the customer doesn't want it, they have to write a letter which states to deactivate the card otherwise they'll be charged $49.95. Sadly many were charged anyway before they got the package whether it was the travel, phone card, the hotel accomodations or ALL three packages.

The company that owns all these different names including "Capital Vacations" is called, "Suntasia Marketing".

Their website is There, you'll find ALL the REAL corporate officers and their agenda. Make NO mistake about it, this company is ONLY geared towards making money and NOT into promoting a satisfying product.

Sad to say they made $20 million dollars (2004/2005 fiscal year) off of the backs of innocent people. I saw the numbers myself in one of their brochure reports. How long can they go before someone FINALLY puts an end to this charade. Feel free to ask me any questions. I am here to help.
