Odenza Marketing Grouptook deposit for trip and not returning

Requested a refund since the voucher says the deposit is refundable however I have yet to receive a response.
I think it is a shame they charge you $138 for a hotel that on the internet is $30 a day (2 nights) that is a $60 voucher. The hotel reviews says it is moldy, run down, holes in walls, plumbing issues, to name a few things. Why would anyone want this type of adventure. This was presentated as a prize and is anything but that. The rep is no longer responding to my emails and I would like my deposit back in full as I want to spend no time anywhere that has a mold problem and holes in the wall.

    Comment: Odenza/Star Rebates operates a Ponzi scheme out of 4664 Lougheed Highway #230, Burnaby BC V5C-5T5. The owner is named Sodi Hundal and the Manager is Darren Single. The Phone number is [protected]. They sell rebate vouchers for gasoline, cruises and groceries to unsuspecting charities and merchants who then sell them as fundraisers or use them as marketing tools to draw in new business. The consumer then must register the voucher and pay a fee. The consumer then must save receipts and send them in for a Visa/MC gift card. Problem is, the company never sends the cards. Odenza/Star rebates keeps the money from the merchant and the registration fees from the customers. If you complain often enough, they may send you one or two cards, then they stop sending them again. If this does not define ponzi scheme, I don't know what does?

    The authorities should also be alerted...

    Here is a link about Odenza marketing/star rebates who are based in Burnaby BC but have "shell companies" in the US. This appears to be a Ponzi scheme. Just Google "Odenza, Star Rebates, Ripoff, scheme" and you will see what I mean.

    They also operate out of San Diego Ca and Seattle WA

    here is a link to a story about this company out of Seattle:

    if the link doesn't work go to KIRO-TV in seattle and put Star Rebates in the search box...these companies are pure ponzi scheme...

    They also ingore inquiries from the BBB in both Canada and the USA...hence the F Rating
