AstarTrips / Overcharged!
I was phoned on 5 February 2008 by a lady named, Beth, from Astartrips in Florida.I was informed that I have won a holiday in Florida for 4 people. I was transferred to Kenneth (I don't believe any of these names are correct) and he explained the itenary. These people are absolutely professional and had all the correct answers to my questions. I was hesitant, but was still convinced of their authenticity. My contribution towards the trip was $998 and this was dedited to my credit card. I refused to give my CVC number, but the amount was still debited to my card. I subsequently sent them an e-mail and this was answered advising me to contact their offices telefonically. This made me very suspicious and I investigated the company. I discovered on the internet a report filed on them. I have not slept well after this. I have stopped my card since and filed a complaint. Hope I will get my money back.
Just for interest, the report on the net was dated 2005, how is it possible that these guys are still operating, they should have been caught long ago!!
