    I can't believe I fell for this offer (at the higher telemarket pric
    of $185). As they say "you never get something for nothing". Afte
    more than a dozen emails back and forth to make sure I wasn't not doin
    something and getting disqualified, and managing to jump all the hoops
    I got as far as the "Reservation Request Form". This was the firs
    feet. Here are there instructions. They come with an address (241
    East Camelback Road, Suite 700, Phoenix, AZ 85016) but no phone numbe
    or email address. On the back is a very basic form with no hints o
    what airports they fly out of, where they fly to, or help with th
    lodging. Note however the the cost of lodging is $250 per person fo
    an unknown length of time, so, so much for "free tickets". I love th
    fact that we have to be ready to travel, but we have to leave 30 day
    between possible departure dates. This is not what the person I talke
    to told me I was getting in to. I'd like my money back, thank you!

    Here's what the letter says that you finally get from them in a plai
    white envelope that I almost missed in the mail.

    If you fell for the obvious spam, then you deserve to pay whatever price
    they got you for. /You/ are the reason why I get 100+ spam emails per
    day*. Count yourself lucky that I don't know you personally, or I'd
    slap you for the good of the internet populous.
