Additional Complaint Information

This company which provides travel services, is owned by William Bailey.

Bailey has been associated with several companies, including Bailey & Associates, about which the BBB had received numerous complaints and which have been involved with government action by attorneys general in Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, and which twice filed for bankruptcy relief. In March 2002, a federal district court in St. Louis, Missouri held that Bailey & Associates had infringed and counterfeited BBB trademarks for the purpose of deceiving consumers into purchasing travel-related products and that Bailey was complicit in this in that he knew about the use of the spurious reports, but did not take action to stop it.

On January 22, 2004, a federal court held that another company, Funseekers, had been formed with substantial assistance and active participation of William Bailey. According to correspondence from the company after that federal court ruling, Bailey resigned from Funseekers and is no longer affiliated with that company.

However, the BBB learned that William Bailey has business relationships with companies named
Beachcomber Vacations and Somerset Vacations which sell the Funseekers club memberships.

Bailey also is affiliated with Phoenix Vacations of Phoenix, AZ, Going Places Travel Corporation of Milwaukee, WI and Castaways Vacations Club of Louisville, KY.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
