It is such a shame that honest people can be taken so easily. We signed up to become independent travel agents of this company on Thursday, 4/13/2006. Not knowing anything about the travel industry, we believed what they told us. We could not afford the first price they were quoting to become a member sooooo they nicely gave us a price that we COULD afford, so we signed up with them.

We got a call from a foreign speaking man on Tuesday, 4/18/2006 saying our debit card would not go through. We put him on hold, checked our bank account online, there was plenty of money to cover the amount needed. I told the caller there was nothing wrong with our checking account, he asked me to give him our debit card number so he could see if he had the correct number. We may be dumb but we're not stupid, I told HIM to give me the number he was using and the amount he was trying to withdraw. After considerable shuffling of papers and speaking with someone in the background (also foreign), he finally gave me the correct number and amount. I told him to try again. We then checked the pending section of our bank account and found 3 withdrawals we did not make totalling $1,076.

Today, we checked with our bank and found out that the money was deducted by someone named John Hiss in Nebraska!!!!! The bank called and spoke with him and we also spoke with him. He advised that he worked for Grand Voyager and had been asked by Mr. Samie (sp?) the owner, to get the money. I told him we were starting a Fraud Investigation regarding his activity because we HAD NOT authorized his withdrawal of ANYTHING from our account in his own personal name. Our bank is cancelling our debit card and issuing a new one and they will not deduct the withdrawals by this John Hiss from our account.

We sent an email to Michelle Meradith with WESH TV in Orlando to see if she would do a report on this company so that no one else in the area would be taken. If you've suffered from this scam and live in the WESH area, send an email to Michelle also.
