Company called me in Australia on home phone offering deal. I unfortunately gave them my credit card details and they charged my card. It was supposed to be towards accommodation in Florida. Company does not answer phone calls and larger amount was charged to my card. ACCC in Australia said that web site was registered in Arizonia. This scam was supposed to be $349 and could of easily of been more. How many other people have they tricked. Please follow this up and please contact me if this is the wrong organization to handle this.

    I would like to withdraw my complaint regarding Tropical Grand Vacations. The company is real and I finally received my package completely out of the given time frame 28 days. But it did arrive. Apparently there were problems with my email address. The difference in amount was for the currency difference. Arizonia is were the website company is not where the company is. I have been able to contact the company now its the time difference again was the problem, you need to call before 10 am and only after Wednesday our time (in Australia). I am sorry if I have mislead anyone the company had an explaination for all my complaints and were quite apologetic. However I am going ahead with my refund as airfares are over our budget as well as we are a party of five (2adults and 3 children)

    i also recieved a phone call today with this wonderful holiday offer. after telling them that my family (my partner myself and five children have not had a holiday for the past NINE YEARS. They were very happy to be able to offer this holiday to us. The phone called is very convincing. i spoke to five different people the last of which told me the conversation was being taped for my security. Although i was told the money would'nt be taken from my accouint today (as i dont have it) that i would be able to pay over the next 3mths. After checking my account the money has been taken and i now have no money left to look after my family. I can not beleave that the people are so heartless.

    Iwas taken in over the phone and altho' I misunderstood how much the deposit was since I was just out of anaesthetic, I decided that I wanted to cancel. When I tried i could not raise the number. Checked site on net & found terrible stories. Bank has acted for me on i'national transaction & money credited w'in 6 weeks NOT 120 days as some reports were reading. I am very thankful to my bank.

    We fell for this scam in December 2007 and are still waiting for a refund. We did everything that was instructed of us in returning the holiday brochures if we did not want to go but we have had numerous phone calls and emails with them and have been promised our money back time and time again but still to no avail. Has anyone any suggestions ???Where do we go from here.

    As long as you have abided with the terms and conditions, we will always try to save the offer that a guest has been given as we are simply promoting host resorts here in beautiful Florida.
