Capital Vacations Ripoff, scammed the ignorant Florida
*Author of original report: WOW I WAS STILL CHARGED!
He began to have me verify personal information that Im not quite sure how he received such as my address, phone number, and middle initial. Then, he said that he needed me to verify that I did have an account because the catch of the offer was that I had 2 weeks to review the information sent to me, and after that, my account would be charged $19.95 a month plus a $40 activation fee. I continued to question him why I couldnt give them my account information at a later date, once I had reviewed the information but he assured me it was for verification purposes only and comnpared it to how department stores scan your checks to verify the account. Then, I became suspicious because in the background I heard alot of joking around and laughing and I found it hard to believe that a business setting would be so informal. However, I asked him for a number to call for verification and I felt assured. I proceeded to foolishly give him my account information.
Then, he said he would start recording the phone call and that we would have to repeat my name, and my account number. He then proceeded to tell me about the six day 5 night vacation in Orlando that I would receive for only $140. I said I was not interested. He then offered me a free callin card but I again declined as I was becomming irratated because my cell phone minutes were ticking away. He then said that dispite this, the information would still be sent to me and that I could keep the airline tickets. But when he again tried to talk me into accpeting the free calling card I stated that I was no longer interested in the deal and I dont want the information.
Now this is the funny part (well its actually NOT funny). When I got off the phone, I did a search on the internet about the company and I was directed to this site. WOW! I was so shocked and I felt violated. I called my mom who told me to withdraw from my account all but $2 and call my Bank to alert them of my mishap. I called the Bank, who immediatly gave me a new account and is monitoring my previous account as an account in conflict. Hopefully, they will catch these jerks who try to take advantage of naive young student like myself. I hope they call me back so I can mess with their deceiving little heads.
