Florida Wide Go Direct - Travel Life Go Direct Total Fraudulant Scam on Innocent People Saint Petersburg Florida

*UPDATE EX-employee responds: CONSUMER ALERT!

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I was contacted by Travel Life Go Direct about vacation packages on Wed. May 2nd. I received thier packet in the mail about 4 days later and instantly called ands told them I was not interested and to cancel my account.

Which they agreed they would do. Two weeks later I get a notice from my bank, Bank of America that I had an over draft on an electronicly generated check. I asked who the check was from since I had destroyed all my checks 5 years ago, they told me it was from a company called Florida Wide Direct Travel. Well that was $149.00 that being a student and a single father of three young children. Then I get hit with 7, $35.00 overdraft fees which brings this all to a total now that I am out to $394.00. Not to mention the regular bills I have each month to run a household on, that are now not payed.

I have called this company on 4 occassions and they told me they would send me a $200.00 gas card good at any gas station. That was on May, 21, and I waited 2 weeks and nothing. Well I call back this evening on June 12th and they tell me I have to buy the gas and send them the receipts. I want to know what the heck is going on here with this company or group of companies sharing finacial information amonst each other or is this just one company using multiple names to scam people out of money. Now my kids and myself have to do without while they are setting in sunny Florida laughing it up. If you have a way for me to recoupe my money and frustration of just trying to get by in life and some person who has total disreguard for people to cheat me out of what little I do have. At this point because of this I have lost about $1,500.00 counting the bills I have accumulated because of this scam. I hope someone out there can put a stop to this mess.

The following is from the Associated Credit Union website:

Don't Take The Bait! Watch For E-mail & Phone Scams!

Current Scams

A company called Travel Agents Direct calls members to inform them that they've won free hotel and travel vouchers. They know the credit union's routing number and ask for your checking account number to debit you for just enough to cover mailing you the vouchers!

The company gets information from those who may have purchased products from online marketing companies or infomercials, who pass on the personal information to Travel Agents Direct.
