    I posted this on the knot this morning to alert more people. Someone contacted their TA & got this response:

    People should be very cautious about booking with travel companies that have NOT
    Been in business at least 10 years. They should also not book with a company that
    Does not have a physical site (office) or that is NOT a member of Iatan. (Portal)

    I knew the owner of exotic escapes. She worked for another company in Portland Oregon
    Years ago and then got FIRED and started her own business…by mortgaging
    her house. I didn’t think she would make it because she had no personality or businesses
    sense at all. She just got mad she was fired from her job with Turtle Island and thought
    She could do it on her own, and she has hurt the industry now. !!!

    Just thought I'd share this info with you. I did not know what to look for when contacting a TA so thought this might be helpful to others.

    Oh my, what a horrible situation. I am so sorry for your loss of money and now your parents not being able to go to the wedding. It's a scary world we live in, so many people out there with no morals.

      omg, I can't believe this is happening to you. I have a similar situation, but not nearly as bad. If this didn't get resolved by the police/ laywers I would eventually show up at her house and flip out on her! Then of course, someone would have to come get me out of jail. How sad that people can ruin your plans/ wedding without giving it a second thought.

          I am so sorry to hear this. This is the last thing you should be worried about. But believe me, everything will work itself and that company will get what it deserves.

                i do have cousins who live about 25 minutes from beaverton, if you have a physical address i can send them to check things out for you, see what the deal is. let me know.
                Good idea Abbie. Or we could just drive down there & kick their butts! Jeez- this is insane. This is clearly a federal crime and I hope you have the energy to take this all the way after your wedding.
