Hi to everybody!
i have registered a few minutes ago and thought of sharing few scams which i have received. since i am conducting a travel agent, i receive hundreds of inquiries in a month. i am being sent inquiries for flight ticket reservations along with hotel bookings. i did receive A LOT OF scam mails from various companies or persons whom are ready to pay anything for the ticket. but actual concern was "a guide" coming with the alleged group and this guide requires some cash. and what they always tried to get me to the point where i would withdraw few thousand dollars or euros and send it to this guide via western union. i do receive other type of scams but this is the most frequent type. so, friends, be careful with flight ticket reservation inquiries too. good luck to you all.

Hi yesil
Wonderful work in spotting the scam :=)

These numbers are not UK numbers. It appear to be from UK, in fact it will redirect your call to any destination in the world
and you can get them for free

the address is not correct, Rotary Club International in London has different address

DON'T tell the scammer that you found him in this site. Just cease all communications with him and move on.

Wow, these scams are specifically aimed at travel agencies? I didn't know there were specialized 'scamming branches' like that. Niche market :wink: Anyway, I'll see if I can get some useful info out of mr. Allen/Williams.
