Hi all, I was scam money by a fake tour agency in India,
I found it in Hellotravel.com.

When I sent the money to the tour agency,
he never send me the receipt and the contact number of the driver...

I was travel in Sourth India,
I full paid money,but no one was waiting me in bangalore airport,
I lose time and money...
The tour agency Karan Agarwal want to scam me again when I back to Hong Kong,he want my credit card number to "refund money"...


I knew I can't get my money back,but I want the share my experience to you,
here are our message:


























I was very angry and want to refund my money

And he want to scam me again,he want my credit card number to "refund money"...





Here are his details,
He has many numbers,
so I don't think he is honest

And I can't find his company on google map:

Tour agency:

Can't understand the situation.

Company is genuine, but money is gone?

Is guy part of company or using their name only?

This seems to be a matter for police. And company should be interested if someone is using their name.

That's why company is required to be informed and that way a complaint should be filed with the company.

Further no one should transfer money to an individual. It will be help in minimizing cheating/scam.

You should first of all contact the company via their general e-mail address to find out if this person actually represents them or is known to them.

If the answer to that is 'no' then for all intents, your cash is gone forever and I don't see anything happening after a police complaint by you (might be different f the company files a FIR).

And never, ever, do such payments through WU and address them to a specific person. Pay by credit card to the company's account only. Or through PayPal business. Then at least you have some recourse. Better yet: try to avoid as much as possible paying for anything in advance. Together with the rupees, all your leverage in case they don't deliver as promised goes out the window.

Sounds like the scam is based around a "fake agent", who spreads info about needing to make quick deals to keep his job, and offering time limited "discounts" for quick payment.
Maybe the person can be traced from his phone number, I think you have to show I.D. to get one in India.
(Let's hope the scoundrel has not broken the law there too... )

Unless the travel agency itself gets involved, I wish anyone who wants the cops in Delhi to take action on this (by tracking a mobile number, no less) the best of luck.

Good find, NomadicBoo.

Tomma, it is too late for you, but for future readers, please ask in these forums before sending money to unknown beneficiaries. IM's intrepid travellers will give you a clearer picture about the authenticity, or otherwise, of many firms.
