I commented on Don in SC and then realized that I probably should file a complaint myself.

I am informed that I have a federal claim against Royal Palm Vacations, also DBN Financial d/b/a Capital Financial.

Contact: U.S. Postal Service [protected].

Fraud must contain:

1. A false statement of a material fact
2. Knowledge by the defendant that the statement is untrue
3. Intent on the part of the defendant to deceive the alleged victum
4. Justifiable relieance by the alleged victum on the statement
5. Injury to the alleged victum as a result.

In other words, Royal Palms Vacations also DBN Financial d/b/a/ Capital Financial knowingly made statements that were not true. In our decision-maing process, we relied upon statements to be true. And we have all been scammed out of thousands of dollars, leaving us in a worse position than before the fraud. If they had told me that (a) dealing with RPPV would be problematic (b) we would have a low probability of obtaining rentals in the area that we wanted at the level desired and (c) they would come up with inappropriate offerings in areas remote from our requested search, we would have excused ourselves and gone home.

Fraud contains an element of "False Pretenses":
Royal Palm Vacations is a ficticious name. They falsely pretend to be operating in Reno, Nevada when, in fact, all business is being conducted in the Clearwater/Largo area. They give the address of an unoccupied office in Reno, NV. Correspondence comes with a return address of Reno, NV but closer examination reveals a 33771 (Largo, FL) postmark.

Mail Fraud requires deception through the US Mail; Wire Fraud requires the use of interstate telephone or electronic means such as the internet. If you received an invoice from Captial Financial, made a telephone call to [protected] or received an email from PRV et al, you qualify for a federal complaint. If you get any emails or mail from RPV et al, save the envelopes and print the emails.

If you are 55+ you are considered in a "vulnerable" category. If you are 65+, the fines, imprisonment and damages increase. Did I hear treble damages? A plaintiff may recover the money that was lost. All states allow Punitve Damages in addition to actuual damages. I seem to recall the the Fed is not deterred by bankrupcy either. They might pierce that veil and persue the participants until satisfaction.

Some employees (current and past) have the same name as people listed in the Florida Department of Corrections Inmate Releasse:

Lisa Johnson, DC No. 570785; out of custody 12/16/2003; offense history of illegal possion of credit card, utter instrument and grand theft.

Robert Norman, DC No. 027595; released from custody 10/16/2005; history of grand theft and possession of firearm by felon.

Angela Shaw (aka) Angela Snipes; DC No. 207766; released 03/30o/2008; history of grand theft, cocaine sale or possession.

Christy Daniels, look her up a www.dc.state.fl.us/InmateReleases

Are they one in the same? Would RPV/DBN/Capital Financial be a good environment to invite poor judgement and mischief? I have not verified that the employees and inmates are one in the same. What a coincidence. Check it out for yourself. Please google all the info in order to verify.

Vulnreable in SC

I have filed a formal affidavit with Ed Lary of the Florida Office of the Attorney General, Economic Crimes [protected]. I intend to follow up my phone call to the US Postal Service with an on-line complaint as instructed by them. The state is persuing on a civil level, but the Feds will get your money back and put people in prison. I hope that I am not the only one complaining to the US Postal Service.

From a FORMER employee:

To everyone who is a member to any one of the below listed fraudulent companies:

... I wish to say that I am sorry... I had no Idea this company that I worked for was like this. Please take this information and do what you have to do with it.

Royal Palm Vacations, Travel Services USA, United Vacation Network, Suncoast Vacations, Suncoast LLC, World Vacations, Imperial Incentives... and many more names... all the same company... many different lawsuits with Atty generals and the state of FL... All ran out of Tampa Bay... (Largo, FL) actually.

For all of you Royal Palm members... there is NO office in Nevada... we were told to tell you that so you could not find where they were...

Google any of the above listed names, or look on ABC Action News of Tampa Bay... and search any of those above names... you will see big news reports of scams...

They never have any vacations available to you... if you place a request for vacation, they will respond "sorry, no avail" which means no availability... when they never even check. For airfare, we used the same websites that you at home do... travelocity, orbits, and expedia... then we would add a percentage to that price because we had to make some money too... So, all this company does is take your $3000.00 - $6000.00, and your ASC (Annual Service Charge). Then they sit there, and do nothing except to reply to you..."sorry no avail" and continue collecting your ASC every year...

To anyone who is a member of any one of those listed fraudulent companies, ... I highly suggest contacting the Florida Atty General, and the Nevada Atty General... good luck all...

FYI: Christy Daniels is the Office Manager (she was in prison for a few years because she was running a fraudulent business before working for these companies... funny huh?!), Amanda is the office supervisor... and the owner of all those false and fraudulent businesses is... Nick Congleton.
