I attended a seminar for GVN on June 17,2011.  I had recieved a card in the mail to pick up a "package".  I called the number and was told it wasn't a package.  I had been "chosen" to attend a seminar in Ann Arbor for GVN and just for attending I would get my choice of Free trips or cruises (AND $300.00 for gas) and as a bonus, an additional $300.00 free gift card to Walmart Best Buy or Lowes.  I was also told that I had a year to use the vacation and even if I didn't I would still get the gas and gift cards.

 GVN Global Vacation Network is a vacation company.  They sell lifetime vacation packages.   I listened. Declined.  Then was give an orange sheet of paper showing my options.
I took it home and looked at it and it was then I discovered that free isn't free in gvneese.  Their free gifts have more stings than a marionette. 

I've been trying to get my free gift cards ever since. The last guy I talked to told me that they never use the word "free". And thier operators and everyone else are instructed never to use the word.  Right off the bat that tells you they know they're leading you on.  I've sent letters to their corporate office, their customer service office, the local t.v. and radio stations and the local newspapers. 

Watch out for these people.

How much Free costs.

The Free $300.00 gas card requires you to buy $100.00 worth of gas per month to get $25.00 back.

The Free $300.00 Gift card requires you to buy $300.00 of merchandise a month to get $25.00 back.
