Rick,
I am apologizing for using the word scam. At the time and the way, I was treated on the phone when someone called from your company. Honestly yes, I thought that I had been scammed. I don’t feel that you are scamming but your process has some kinks. I also feel that from reading your statement you have not been told the situation correctly. I will not go into further detail because I really want this too end. This whole situation could have been avoided if your employee did not hang the phone up on me. I was quoted a price paid my deposit then a phone call was made to me stating that the price was wrong. All I knew at the time was I had paid a deposit and now no reservation not to mention he told me that since it was so close to the date I would have to pay in full. Then the man told me the reservation had been cancelled and hung the phone up on me when I started to question the situation. I myself was very disappointed over how I was treated and how the transaction was handed and the way I was treated by the man on the phone. I was told it was because they quoted the wrong price. I do not feel now it was a fraud but at the time, I did and I apologize. How would you feel if you booked something over the internet, my credit card was charged? Now I’m getting a phone call stating that they quoted the room wrong and needed full payment then when I was questioning why was told no forget the reservation and was hung up on?

OMG!!! WTH?? SO much for apologizing.... Please change the title of this thread. You can't just start a new thread and think this is ok. You have now left people to believe that they took your money.

Ok. So you think that the room should have been held for the full 24 hours and you are saying that it wasn't. I get it, but it is now a moot point. The bigger issue is that you have stated that your credit card was charged and that they still have not returned your money. The receipt that you received via email is an auto reply. It was generated before your card actually would have been processed. They have said that the transaction was voided before it was processed. That means that they will not need to refund money. Sharing the receipt for VS doesn't matter. What is on your cc statement does. But, please, do not share that just to make a point.

All we care about is that you have not been wrongly financially cheated and that you have a great trip.

And with that, I say, please just end the madness...

Im really tired of this too. VS stated that it was on a24 hour hold I paid it asap. I still did not get my deposit back and have no reservation. I must really not understand how the process works. I know I started this thread but I am getting the impression that I am not telling the truth and I am....

AmyC20120, please just let it go and let this thread die. It has been established that Vacation Strategy did NOT scam you. I understand you are frustrated and disappointed, but to be honest, your recent posts do nothing to prove your point. I read in your other thread that you have a reservation elsewhere, so try to forget this and have fun! You will be in Disney World soon and all this aggravation will be (hopefully) forgotten.

This, so many times. If you are still concerned, take it up with your credit company -- forward them the e-mails you got from VS, tell them your concern, and let it go. If there really is a problem, your credit company will straighten it out for you. Please don't post your personal financial information to the Internet, that's like an invitation for trouble!

And if you can't get past this idea that you can't get hurt unless someone else is deliberately hurting you, you are going to end up ruining your own vacation. For your own sake, and for the sake of the kids, pass it on to your CC company, then let it go, call it a lesson learned, and focus on the fact that you now have reservations and you're going to Disney!

Your statement regarding VS and the BBB was 100% false. Your pp implied you paid VS $2000. The number is now $150 and it's not even clear if that charge was processed through to your cc. I'd prefer to think you're clueless rather then a liar.

Assuming the email you posted wasn't altered, and I have no reason to assume it wasn't, the answer could be as simple as VS made a mistake. Maybe a hold wasn't allowed for that kind of last minute reservation. No scam. No lies. Maybe WBC didn't honor the hold. Maybe they hold was only applicable for a calendar day and your deposit was paid too late in the day to be processed with WBC. Did you check with your cc company? Was the charge processed? If so file a dispute and let the matter rest.

Great deal at a great location for a peak holiday week less then a month before check in. I would have been on the phone with VS as fast as I got that email. No way that reservation was going to be held even a minute extra.
