Company claims to be a Round Rock Texas based "travel destination" company, yet is an "RCI Points Conversion" company, and when you get the confirmation, it is from "Vacation Tours USA" which has a long list of cruise scams.

It was hard to find any scam info on them, they seemed somewhat legit, although the website was lame. The director appears to be a local guy named Cavit Handley

But there is a long track record of VTU and affiliates , so my first instinct was right
