mrsksomeday has a great suggestion that would demonstrate you really meant it when you said you recognized it was wrong to say you were scammed -- change your other thread title.
I tried to change the thread don't know how. I responded to Ricks post and went back through and checked my credit card statemnt I was wrong I still have not received my deposit back yet. So I am not changing my post that is how I felt at the time and right now I still do.... Its been 8 days he can say that they never charged my card but they did and still no credit.

So you see the charge to Vacation Strategy online on your credit card account?

He is saying the charge never went all the way through his system so there would be nothing to refund. He said he stopped the transaction before your card was charged.

Truly, an admin needs to step in and remove this. This person is clearly confused--she has posted so many inconsistencies. And now it's 'she got the money back, she didn't get the money back...'

As a small business owner, I would be absolutely crushed if someone was messing with my business like this.

maybe your credit card company held the amount that was going to be charged, but it wasn't.

I have had that happen...

When I was on a Disney cruise, they charged my card for something (I can't remember now it's been so long) but I called the cruise line when I got home and they said that was just a hold it didn't actually go through and my account should reflect that in a few days.

Didn't understand completely but watched my CC statement like a hawk those few days and sure enough, it was gone. It never actually happened. The credit card saw that it was there to go through, waits on it, and then it never is processed so it's gone.

That's what I was thinking as well. Whatever's going on, the OP's money is not in any danger. According to VS's policies as stated on their website, and according to the personal statement of the owner, she shouldn't be charged, so it's not even really a dispute the CC company needs to resolve, just a matter of processing.

And if she doesn't get her money back, she needs to take it up with whatever she thinks rules the universe, because clearly some power much greater than Vacation Strategy is out to get her.

That's what the little exclamation point icon is for at the bottom left of each post -- to report junk like this to the mods.

It's a fine line for the mods -- on the one hand, they want to foster free and open discussion of various points of view; on the other, you have to have some sensible rules about what is allowed and what is not.

There is also a point where a dead horse is just being beaten into a pile of mush. IMHO, both of these threads have exceeded that standard -- there is nothing new being said in either thread.

But if there are no complaints for the mods to deal with, stuff like these two threads goes unnoticed.

I know quite a few people with small-to-medium timeshare rental businesses. I toyed with the idea of starting one myself. But, after speaking with a few of them, "customers" like this are more common than you'd think, and I decided that discretion was the better part of valor.
