IT'S LIKE THE OLD SAYING
IF IT'S TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS. I FEEL BAD FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WERE TAKEN BY THIS COMPANY BUT I FEEL THEY SHOULD HAVE RESEARCHED THE COMPANY AND THE PRICES OF THE TRIP MOST TRIPS TO CANCUN/COZYMEL ARE SIMILAR IN PRICE AND A TRIP PRICED WAY UNDER THE AVERAGE SHOULD BE CHECKED INTO BEFORE BOOKED.

Did you watch the broadcast? I owner of the company said that they people did not pay all the money. The owner also refunded all their money. It sounds like the 51 people that have to stay in one house should take their money and get a hotel room and discover beautiful down town Decatur.

Why are we blaming the company because people are stupid and only here what they want to here?

I have never herd of this company but I would not jump on them until I herd from that company owner.

C'mon people!!! Do you guys not understand by now!! Do not believe everything you hear in the news. There are always TWO sides to every story.
Just wait, I'll bet we have not heard the last of this. I'll also bet the "Company" did nothing wrong!!
Has Anybody ever heard of a trip to Mexico for 5 days costing $262. all inclusive? I think not.
Let the travel agent tell her side first.

I agree with anon at 10:10am. I understand that the people who signed up for this trip to Mexico didn't pay the TOTAL amount by a certain date and now their crying to Fox 4 News about it. They needed to get the facts straight before jumping to the conclusion that the travel agent or company was in the wrong!

You bring the salt, I'll bring the lime!

51 people having to live in one house? And they could afford to take a vacation? Is there something here that I'm missing?!?!

I believe the news story said the owners said they would return the money (big difference between would and did.) That is why the people were standing at the Wells Fargo near the square. The owner didnt show up so that is when they went to the house. Are we really suprised though? I looked at that website...the Cozumel vacations I saw were $2100 for two people. That was quite a deal that family was getting. Would have been a red flag for me.

It is my undertanding that the sheriff is already filing charges against those people for unpaid accounts all over the place. Apparently they racked up some pretty big bills (printing, etc.) and have dissapeared. Somebody's in trouble!

By the way...I dont think 51 people live in one house...51 relatives showed up to depart together on their vacation and now are hanging out together scratching their heads since they are not in Mexico.

Aren't you all quick to call us back wood country folks, that don't have any sense. Yes it was the deal of a life time, but when 51 people book a trip you would like to think you would get a discount of some sort. If my memory serves me right, we were not the only ones in Wise Co. to ever be scammed by a Travel Agent. Did Your Honor ever get to Australia? By the way there is paperwork, signed, dated, and was supposed to be legal. NOT!!! The price was quoted in black and white. The trip was actually booked and cancelled 4 times, by MS Carnes. So before you start calling people ignorant, get the facts. My son may have fallen prey to this woman, but I asure you, I will have the last word. As of Wednesday we have not recieved a refund, its kinda hard to get to Wells Fargo from Hawaii!!!

Honestly....even if it was written on a piece of paper, did you not think it was a little odd you were paying about %20 of the normal cost for these vacations? You cant tell me you didnt wonder why it was so cheap! You got taken. Don't get mad at us.
