1 Largo, FL, United States Review updated:

After reading nearly all the postings regarding FreeBeeGas (parent company Tidewater Global Marketing-Owner:Ms Crystal Clark), I cannot help but wonder how many thousands and thousands of people across the entire country, this organization, and the lovely Ms Clark have scammed...and how much MONEY she has made as a result of her "oh-so-clever business practices. Between "selling" the useless gas vouchers to all kinds of different types of retail merchants (mine was Lasco Ford in Fenton, Micigan), and collecting our $5.00 "registration fee" must be in the MILLIONS! I did file a complaint with the Florida Attorney General's Office, as well as, the Michigan AG. What I really, really want to know (after reading more blogs on the subject then I could count) WHY oh WHY hasn't someone started a CLASS ACTION lawsuit against Ms Crystal Clark/ Tidewater Global Marketing/ FreeBeGas and either bring her to her financial KNEES, or toss her buttock in JAIL where she obviously belongs. I also wonder what the REPONSIBILITY of the retailer who actually used FreeBeeGas as a promotional vehicle to entice us to purchase their product should be. Shouldn't they have researched the vendor and known who they were doing business with? Why should we the consumer be "duped" and taken advantage of? The folks that I did business with at LASCO FORD (Jay Lasco) in Fenton, Michigan told me that it was "my problem" and did NOTHING. Am I the only one who believes that the merchant we did business with should "back" their promotion and HELP us out? Let me know at Thanks.

    Wow. I feel exactly the way you do! I contacted the dealership (made new vehicle purchase July 2008) and they provided me a number (561-491-0880 ext. 125), but then that number had an automated response to call 850-488-2221, which is Florida Dept of Agriculture/Consumer Services and Consumer Assistance Center. Hours are M-F 8-4:45pm Eastern Standard Time. I have not had a chance to call during those hours yet, but intend to do so. In addition to your questions, I wonder how the various retailers/dealerships were approached with this deal? There should be some accountability. I'm not done checking things out, and I'm not sure what can be done, but I agree that someone needs to make things right. Probably would be good for everyone to contact Florida's Better Business Bureau. I'm curious to know how many reimbursable $5 processing fee payments were payed out to these scam artists. (I'm frustrated with myself, as something didn't sit right with having to make this $5 payment in the first place...should have listened to my instincts and checked it out a little more closely.)
