C&B Getaways, Inc. / Terrible experience
I was looking to work from home so that i am able to look after my son who was four months old then. I came across these people who claim pay $10 for every vacation certificate redeemed and they know who to pay by the DID # on each certificate. I am the kind of person that only likes to work for legitimate employers who are legitimate with clients, therefore following research that i did on this site and with the BBB i did not find any complaints whatsoever at that time. This was back in March 2008. I can only guess they must be newer than they claim not to have any complaints at that time.
This company reeled me in to purchase the certificates from them in order to distribute. After them telling me that the average number of certificates redeemed is 20% or slightly higher i did my maths and thought, hmmm, well they are legitimate and honest (i did my checking on them) with people so i can easily work from home and make a fair income.
C. L. Somer is one of the CEO's there and his wife.
I bought envelopes, stamps, the certificates, names and addresses and got to work. I have received two checks from them in total for $20 to date and felt i need to file a report here to warn other people about them that they are thieves and to beware anyone wanting to work for them from home only to discover i now see reports filed and they are not just ripping off potential employees, they are ripping off consumers too. OMG i feel terrible about this. Bad for the consumer and angry at this company. I spent almost $800.00 on my credit card in 0rder to make $2000.00 for 20% of 1000 certificates mailed.
If there is a class action suit against this company for everyone to get their money back then i would be so grateful to be included. Please post the information in Ripoff. Thanks - I Got Conned too :-(
