VIP Express / Ripp off

1 South Africa

This Company sells you a "vacation" with different options to choose from, although you do not have a job, this does not matter because with them you can sell the same to other poor old fools and make good commission that will pay for this. As long as you get them to a meeting in order for them to paint you this perfect picture of how this scheme will not cost you a sent. After realizing this in 1 week we phoned the person that invited us to this "meeting", told him that we were promised that he will drive us around, since we did not even have a car yet. In order for us to "sell" these "vacations" options (club) we had to get around... Jobless and no money and someone that made good commission from us "buying" this, we were rather stuffed.
This all happened approximately 2 years ago (2006). Between then and now we received a few phone calls demanding us to pay. "Pay what?" We spent hours on the phone trying to explain that we canceled this deal and they can keep the deposit we already paid. "yes" they say. "We understand". Basically meaning "whatever, we do not care, just pay! Talking to my lawyer, writing them letters to please and explain, we still got nowhere. We haven't received any booklets from them in the past 18months, never used any of their so called "units" but they want the money! Now (2009) after given the assurance from this person representing VIP (2006) and a lot of explaining we received a letter with an astronomical figure that we must pay immediately (R +-16 000-00). This is only a short summary concerning this endeavor. Their staff just don't care, they could not be bothered if you die of hunger. We signed a contract with VIP after a lot of promises were made to us, they did not pay of but we must still pay. The best is, they got a company collecting these "outstanding" money. After phoning them, cost to me and faxing them my new address, they still mail it to the wrong address. Could this maybe be to obtain a summons in our absence, not receiving the letters??
