Was solicted by a travel & vacation firm as part of the process was given a free gas program. All I needed to do was to purchase $100.00 in gas each month from a list of particular vendors for 12-month to receive a $25.00 a month voucher.
I did receive 1- $25.00 gift card for aug. 08 purchases which finally came in oct. 08 after several calls to the company. Since then I have received nothing, and upon calling the number listed [protected] no answer at all.
Places like these should be defintely listed as fraudlent.
Sundance vacations "there ain't no free" nothing
I recently had an experience with a "travel" company in brookfield, wi. After entering a contest at a promotional booth at the milwaukee zoo to win a "free ford expedition or $50, 000" I received a call that I had "won a trip to the bahamas" and that all I had to do was come to the travel companies office and listen to an introduction to their company with no obligation to purchase and I would receive my free trip. Well my husband and I went to the office and listened to a intro and sales pitch that was quite convincing and seemed legit and reasonable. We were convinced during a high pressure sales pitch... Which was like the most stresseful used car deal you can imagine.. Into purchasing a vacation package that included 12 vacations for $3600, supposedly anywhere in the us at one of this "whole sale companies luxury resorts". I thoroughly read the details of the contract we signed and left feeling somewhat shocked that this company could offer such an opportunity.
Well, once home I went to the companies web site and did some research (which I later regretted doing after the fact). There were two lines in the contract that stated exceptions for additional costs and "peak season travel and black out dates etc." turns out these times are 80-90% of the year and the cost to use your trips at those times is significantly higher. The reviews all over the internet (except those testimonials on the companies website) all state similar experiences with a deceptive company that is legit and registered with the bbb, but scams customers by omission. I cancelled my check to the company that night and made a call to their customer service department the next day, trying to clarify my concerns.
The woman offered me a cheaper deal on the vacations and tried to convice me that this was something that was "good for my family" I then told her to cancel my contract on the basis of omission of the facts about what the travel trips really included, or I would possibley have to take legal action due to the omission of the details and the invalid statements of the presentation, execution and wording of my contract. It wasn't until I mentioned anything legal that she agreed to cancel. I think that local comsumers need to know the details of the operation of this company before they walk innocently into their office thinking that the won a free trip. Please google the company name. You'll find a slew of similar experiences. Fortunately I was able to get out of my contract before I lost any money, but others may not. My advice... "there ain't no free"... Don't waste your time.

Sundance Travel Agency - www.sundancetvl.com
I would like to thank Becca from Pennsylvania for clarifying the position of Sundance Travel Agency as the sleaziest scam of travel agencies. As I understand it, if you scam the customer, then the customer is to blame for spending their money foolishly. Very nice!
I was contacted by this company after mindlessly entering a contest to enter a free car at the Blackhawks game. I was then advised that I won a 3 day trip to Orlando or Vegas. Nothing to buy and no time share to purchase. I only needed to give them an hour of my time with my wife (make arrangements for babysitting) and make over $30K/yr...oh yes, and be over 21 yrs of age. Here's the rub. i specifically asked if I was going to be solicited to buy something (b/c I was told I had to pick up my free trip in person). I was told no. Now that I have done the research to see that I will be solicited, I will not be attending. I have noticed that they have called 5 times since we initially agreed to meet with them...and the date scheduled hasn't even arrived yet.
Thank you to everyone for clearing the air. Most of all, thank you to Becca for showing what the company philosophy is really about... screwing the consumer!
