    This is absolutely terrible! I would never recommend anyone to use exotic escape.... they've been known in the past to actually scam people's money! My mother used them once and gave them her cc to use... they ended up taking her payment and then every month after that they would take $15 from her cc. It was such a little amount my mom didn't even notice and just paid it for a long time. Fortunately it was her cc so she just called the cc company to notify them of an unauthorized charge. We did some research and found out they had been doing it for quite a while to many people. Could you imagine how much money they would make from taking $15/month from hundreds of people.

        Here is a link that you might be able to get to... Tami Ames is the TA that took my cc info, and Heather Holmgren is the owner-
        Make sure you file with the Better Business Bureau as well.

        Do you have receipts for the money that is now "missing"?
        Yes I have the bank statements. The Dispute is in order. I tried to file a BBB but during the online process I was directed to a list of Attorneys! (because this is a criminal issue)

        this was her response from her TA

        I just spoke with our home office at DW and they assured me it is not us. Many sites have an area called destination weddings and can get confused with us…wasn’t us!
        Awesome. Forward me the link and I will be happy to add my 2 cents... since thats about all the money I freakin HAVE right now!!! Well the DW specialist lady is being all nice to me now stating that the VP, Ed Cotton have contacted their attorney on my behalf... YEAH RIGHT! They probably contacted the attorney to cover their butts!

        I hope they get arrested too!!! I did... Its all on my status update!


        So here is what I have done after I got off of BDW... I tried filling a report at the BBB... I was stopped because this is a CRIMINAL issue
        I also called Beaverton Police which gave me the damn runarounds because they could never contact me when I was up.. and when they finally did, we had HORRIBLE connection another I did get a message from an officer stating that since there is no Physical Address, they cant help me WTF? They also directed me to IC3.gov which is for internet fraud. its ran by the FBI and some other federal departments. I completed a complaint and got a number. They should be contacting me soon. Im super tired now. Still a little jet lagged since I flew in Sunday. I am going to take a nap. And then contact the military base here to see if I could get some legal assistance. Im just tired. This is making my wedding such a chore.

                It's already buried on the knot. the threads there don't pop up to the top like they do here, so after a day, no one reads it anymore.

                      Oh my goodness. Freakin people. That's in my neck of the woods. I'm willing to do some investigative work for you, but unless Abbie and Christa back me up, I don't think I want to go knock on any doors. I'd get the shit kicked out of me.

                      Any updates- anything you need?
