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"...it 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 [protected]@comcast.net. Thanks.
Got roped in to signing up for dish network for 1 1/2 year. Promotion included $100 in gas voucher. I have contacted freebee many times. I was told excuse after excuse when I would receive the voucher. I have contacted them recently and both email and phone are out of service.
What a scam...will be contacting dish network about this.
We received a $300 certificate for free gas from a timeshare we attended. We followed the instructions sent to us by e-mail to send in 100.00 in original gas receipts every month and would receive a $25.00 gas credit in return. We did this for 5 months and have received nothing. Wrote a letter and got no response. Tried to send e-mail and wouldn't go through. The gas station has to be the same eg. Chevron or one of your choice and can be anywhere you purchase gas. It states it will take 3 weeks to get your gas credit if mailed before the 20th of the month. The company is 14100 Walsingham Rd Ste. 36 Largo, Fl 33774 . Phone # [protected]
My wife and I attended a sales presentation hosted by Global Vacation Network in Dublin Ohio. We were promised a free four day, three night Mexico getaway and $300.00 in free gas. We found out after a month or so that the Mexico getaway sponsored by Mexico Paradise Getaway (MPG) was not quite as promoted.
After sending them a $100.00 deposit and waiting for forty five days or so, I received an email requesting a money order or certified check for an additional $300.00. This money had to be received by them by certified mail within 30 days or they would cancel the trip.
Thanks to some input from others on how they had the same or worse experience, I immediately requested a refund. I did not hear from MPG, but after numerous phone calls, threats and complaints to Global Vacation Network, I did receive a $100.00 refund check.
My $300.00 gas voucher also provided by Global Vacation Network and sponsored by FreeBeeGas.com, also turned out to be not as promised. I sent them a $5.00 deposit, collected $100.00 in gas receipts, mailed the receipts promptly to the address requested and waited. I received an email from FreeBeeGas.com stating that they had received my receipts and would be processing my gas card.
That is the last I have heard from them. I am now well past the time period that I should have received my first gas card, and have not received anything. All of my emails to them go unanswered and the phone number I was given to contact them only states that there mailbox is full.
My advice to all is stay away from Global Vacation Network and their “Free" prizes. I personally spent three hours listening to a “90 minute" sales presentation and received nothing. Mexico Paradise Getaway and FreeBeeGas.com both turned out to be worthless prizes that only proceeded in costing me more time and money.
