Global Vacation Rental Sales to Exceed $ 85 Billion In 2014

Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

Vakast, an online vacation rental site company, announced today that it now aggregates more than one million vacation rental properties worldwide. Through its numerous partnerships with companies such as HomeAway, FlipKey and Wimdu, Vakast has the largest inventory of vacation rentals available online.    

What differentiates Vakast from other vacation rental sites is its (patent pending) date and rate grid, which allows visitors to quickly compare rates from week to week or by season. This feature establishes Vakast as the Kayak in the vacation rental space.

Although vacation rental growth has been organic for the past decade, the industry experienced a major demand for rental properties over the past two years. “Entering the travel industry in 2012 was a strategic move,” stated Vakast’s founders, Huan Truong and Tam Nguyen. “We developed a platform that allows visitors to choose their destination and instantly view numerous vacation rentals side by side with just a few clicks.” While the recession has crippled many industries, travel is one of the few business segments experiencing growth. On September 6, 2013, the U.S. Travel Association reported that, “travel employment has risen by 85,000 jobs so far this year.” This type of growth further supported Truong and Nguyen in building the perfect vacation rental site.

In a two-day survey conducted at the John Wayne Airport in Southern California, travelers were asked to rate their most recent hotel stay. The results revealed that less than 20% of travelers had a positive hotel experience and only 18% would choose the same hotel again. While the complaints varied, costly meals, resort fees, small rooms, and noise topped the list. Vakast’s Vice President of Marketing, Monique Berry stated that, “Today’s travelers are demanding better accommodations. They need more space for their family and friends and money to spend on dining and vacation activities.” Finding the value in vacation rentals is simple; there are no resort fees or tips and many properties even welcome pets.

About Vakast: Incorporated in April of 2013 and based in Newport Beach, California, Vakast is a privately held company. With more than a million vacation rental properties worldwide, the Vakast website is built on a patent pending technology. It is visually appealing, intuitive, and easy to use.

Collection Agency Rapid Recovery Solution Responds to News of Massive Credit Card Hack

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2013

On July 28, leading collection agency Rapid Recovery Solution is highly disappointed to learn of a wide-reaching credit card scam.

According to USA Today article from July 25 titled “5 charged with hacking 160M credit card numbers” U.S. federal law enforcement cracked down on a cyber crime ring. The alleged offenders were responsible for over seven years of computer hacks, obtaining the details of 160 million credit and debit cards. The stolen information was then sold around the world and totaled hundreds of millions of dollars in losses to unsuspecting victims.

The article talked about the four of the accused hackers that are natives of Russia, with the fifth hailing from the Ukraine. The eastern European accused criminals targeted mostly American corporations, including 7-eleven, JC Penny, Hannaford Brothers grocery chain, Jet Blue and Nasdaq electronic stock exchange. If convicted, the defendants could face a prison sentence upwards of 20 years from charges of computer hacking conspiracy and conspiracy to commit fraud.

John Monderine, CEO of accounts receivable collections company Rapid Recovery Solution, Inc., voices his opinion. “Here at Rapid, we are especially disappointed to learn of this criminal ring.” Monderine offers additional insight. “Part of our responsibility as an accounts receivable collection agency is to educate consumers of the dangers of debt inherent with credit card use. However, possible cyber fraud is not something we can prepare them for. In this case we simply have to rely on our law enforcement to do their jobs.”

Founded in 2006, Rapid Recovery Solution, Inc. is headquartered at the highest point of beautiful Long Island. Rapid Recovery Collection Agency is committed to recovering your funds. We believe that every debtor has the ability to pay if motivated correctly. We DO NOT alienate the debtors; we attempt to align with them and offer a number of ways to resolve not only your debt but also all their debts.

United Credit Consultants – Better Business Bureau (BBB) Nominates United Credit Consultants, The Prestigious 2014 Better Business Bureau (BBB) Torch Award For Ethics

United Credit Consultants™

Burnsvile, Minnesota (PRWEB) June 17, 2014

United Credit Consultants received communication late May on a nomination for the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Torch Award for Ethics for 2014.

UCC has currently zero (0) unresolved complaints with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is an independently ran profit making entity. Each BBB location could be separately owed much like a franchise. For a brief explanation and understanding of what a “complaint “is, that at any time any client, past or present can place a complaint onto the (BBB) website. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) complaint and comment sections are mainly a computer based system that is later managed manually by BBB staff to record on BBB site against the company. Company at that point has the choice to respond or ignore complaint. As it was mentioned prior, UCC currently has zero (0) unresolved complaints.

United Credit Consultants President and CEO Joseph McGlynn said : Knowing these complaints can come at any point and anytime, he is proud of his team and service that the percentage of client ‘resolved’ complaints vs past or present UCC clients is less than .01%. Every day we strive here at United Credit Consultants to be the best customer service, credit Service Company in the nation. Our team takes every negative situation and will work hard to make it a positive one for not only for the client but use the situation to learn from. “This award nomination for the 2014 Torch Award for Ethics came as a friendly reminder that, we are doing things the right way” says McGlynn.

Recipients of the award will be announced and honored at the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics Ceremony. This year’s event will be on October 29, from 11:00am-1:30pm, at the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus.

Comments Off Launches a New Tool Against Telemarketing Fraud

(PRWEB) October 27, 2013

InvoiceChecker is an expense reduction company who specializes in auditing, price comparing, and re-negotiating service fees and monthly rates for their customers regular services, such as; telephone bills, cell phone bills, office supplies, and courier shipments.

After receiving more than 100 complaints of fraudulent invoices regarding directory scams InvoiceChecker has dedicated an entire department to combat this business con.

Just search “Directory Scam” in any engine and thousands of results detailing frustrated business owners come to life. Every day companies are duped into agreeing to and paying for a service they do not want, they do not need, and in many cases, simply cannot afford.

Small businesses have been hit the hardest by these directory online listing scams. Several different claims have been reported by InvoiceChecker’s customers. In most cases a ‘sales’ representative contacts a company claiming they have signed up for a listing a year before and must now pay for it. A second recorded call is then placed to confirm the address and listing. A few weeks later an invoice comes in the mail and a collection agent is calling daily.

For the unfortunate businesses who pay for the services their names are then circulated on ‘leads’ and they begin to receive phone calls from multiple companies they have never heard making the same claim. Although the representative’s scam story may change the results do not. In today’s economy businesses cannot afford to keep paying for needless services.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and Attorney General in the USA and the Competition Bureau in Canada are all agencies that accept complaints and companies should report any illegitimate and unethical business practices to them. This will help these agencies build cases against fraudulent companies. However, it does not necessarily mean the invoice will be voided or, more importantly, get the business off the call list.

Reportedly 92% of those surveyed by InvoiceChecker who have received what was believed to be a fraudulent directory listing invoice and did not pay it have been threatened with third party collections, legal proceeding and/or been told that the unpaid invoice will affect their credit rating. Of these, 65% claimed to have received a call from a third party collection agency.

The new service being offered by InvoiceChecker offers a complete solution to these telemarketing frauds by analyzing each invoice and company, handling disputes on behalf of the business in receipt of the questionable service, and even getting them off of the call lists.

InvoiceChecker confidentiality agreement and privacy policies do not allow them to share their trade secrets, but the proprietary information is proving to be successful with 95% of their customers having had at least 5 of their invoices closed within 30 days of sign-up.

“Online advertising plays a vital role in the business world, so we can’t say that every directory company is a scam by any means, but there is a big problem out there and businesses can’t afford to carry these costs any longer. So, we have decided to take a hands on approach. We not only look into the company’s history, the service being provided, and that the sales strategy and invoice follows proper procedure, we will actually contact the company in question on behalf of our customer. Our customers can focus on their business, while being free of the stress and frustration caused by these scams.” – Monica Sanders, Account Manager at InvoiceChecker

Risperdal Lawsuits Being Investigated by Wright & Schulte LLC on Behalf of Boys and Young Men Who Developed Gynecomastia (Male Breast Growth), Allegedly Due to Risperdal

Victims of gynecomastia associated with the use of Risperdal may be eligible to file a Risperdal lawsuit. For a free legal consult contact Wright & Schulte at or call 800-399-0795

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 22, 2013

Risperdal lawsuits are now being evaluated by Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced personal injury law firm, on behalf of young men and boys who developed gynecomastia (male breast growth) allegedly due to Risperdal. According to court documents, at least 230 Risperdal lawsuits are now pending in a Mass Tort proceeding underway in Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas in Pennsylvania. All of the Risperdal lawsuits filed in the proceeding allege that Risperdal can increase hormone levels in boys and young men, leading to breast development. The complaints also accuse Johnson & Johnson of concealing the risk of male breast growth from patients and the medical community. (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, Case ID. 100300296)

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Risperdal is an antipsychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Introduced in 1993, Risperdal was not approved for pediatric use until 2006.

[, FDA, September 2011]

In August 2012, The New York Times reported that Johnson & Johnson had reached a $ 181 million Risperdal settlement with state and federal prosecutors. Among other things, prosecutors had alleged the company promoted Risperdal for unapproved uses, including the treatment of children. Johnson & Johnson was also accused of concealing the association between Risperdal and gynecomastia, as well as other Risperdal side effects.

[, New York Times, August 31, 2012]

That same month, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Johnson & Johnson has settled several bellwether cases set for trial in the Risperdal litigation. The Risperdal settlements were reached after Johnson & Johnson lost its bid to prevent former FDA Commissioner David A. Kessler, M.D. from testifying as a witness for plaintiffs. According to the Inquirer, Kessler has also authored a report slated to be offered into evidence in which he asserted that the company had promoted Risperdal for non-approved uses in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

[, Philadelphia Inquirer, October 4, 2012)]

Court documents indicate that Risperdal lawsuits continue to be filed in the Mass Tort proceeding in Philadelphia. Most recently, a man from Texas filed such a complaint that alleges his use of Risperdal caused gynecomastia, as well as weight gain, pre-diabetes, and emotional and psychological injuries. The lawsuit, which was filed on September 20th, charges Johnson & Johnson and its Janssen Pharmaceuticals unit with negligence, fraud, strict product liability, breach of implied and express warranties, conspiracy, and of violating Pennsylvania’s Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law. (Case ID Number: 130902319)

Victims of gynecomastia (male breast growth) allegedly associated with the use of Risperdal may be eligible to file their own Risperdal lawsuit. To learn more, or to arrange for a free legal consultation with an attorney at Wright & Schulte LLC, please visit

“One of the greatest challenges of running an online company is not getting hit by scam artists,” a spokesman said. “We’ve always had anti-scam protections in place, but now they are stronger than ever.”

Companies like are prime targets for scam artists to use stolen credit card data on, he said.

“When a scam artist gets stolen credit card information, the first thing they want to do is test it out with a small purchase before they buy more expensive things,” the spokesman said. “Because our fees are fairly low, that makes us attractive.”

What happens, he said, is that people notice the unauthorized charges on their account and then contact to find out what happened.

“The new technology we’ve installed is predictive,” the spokesman said. “It looks for patterns that are common when people are running a scam. Then, it blocks the charge.”

The software won’t prevent legitimate consumers from using’s services, he said

“If your transaction is put on hold, all you have to do is contact your credit card company and they can unlock the transaction,” he said. “This will only affect scam artists.”

Accounts Receivable Collection Agency Rapid Recovery Solution Warns Against Loan Forgiveness Scams on Instagram

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

Rapid Recovery Solution, Inc. urges caution for indebted college grads on social media.

According to an October 17 article from titled “Student Loan Forgiveness Through Instagram?” cyber criminals have employed malicious tactics on the popular photo-sharing app. Posing as the “official” accounts of lender Sallie Mae, fraudulent users advertised “government shutdown specials” to borrowers. The promotions promised to eliminate outstanding loans in exchange for personal information to the first 20,000 followers.

MLive Media Group in Michigan reported, “A search of Instagram accounts on Wednesday (October 9) turned up more than a half-dozen of these accounts, all using the Sallie Mae name and logo.” In response to these damaging scams, the real Sallie Mae warned the social media community about these frauds through its Facebook and Twitter pages. It also assured followers that the government shutdown is in no way affecting the distribution of loans to students in need of funds.

John Monderine, CEO of Rapid Recovery Solution, weighs in on these developments. “Social media has become an essential tool for nearly every business. Even our accounts receivable collection agency constantly updates our pages to stay connected to clients. It’s truly unfortunate when scams like this occur.” Monderine continues. “Above all else, this story reaffirms the reality that there’s no easy way of escaping debt. The key is to formulate and execute responsible payment plans that keep debt in check.”

Founded in 2006, Rapid Recovery Solution, Inc. is headquartered at the highest point of beautiful Long Island. Rapid Recovery Collection Agency is committed to recovering your funds. We believe that every debtor has the ability to pay if motivated correctly. We DO NOT alienate the debtors; we attempt to align with them and offer a number of ways to resolve not only your debt but also all their debts.
