check the price with the actual airline on their website and buy from them.

Also check the IATA code they quote on the website to see if it is valid. A search of the Company Name GA Ticket Ltd isn't bringing anything up on the web despite the website saying it has office in Spain and the UK. Hong Kong based firm

It looks like they buy other miles then purchase tickets using them...wouldn't touch with a barge pole

That is a violation of most (if not all) frequent flyer programmes. If discovered by the airline they may cancel your ticket.

It's a scam.

I just visited the site and and tried a dummy booking. It looked earily familiar. It's the same look and feel as www.flightbuddyonline.com and other associated sites (which have been shut down).

They give you the "option" to pay by credit card, but unfortunately their credit card processing is unavailable, and so is Paypal, leaving you with bank transfer/Western Union as the "only currently available" payment option.

Avoid it like the plague.

tallymor,

Well at least you did research up front and you've unmasked another wrong'un website, so well done and thanks.

If you were given an account number to wire money to, you could be a good citizen and report it to the police. It'll be a small step (very small) in the direction of getting the scammers caught, but it'll help.

The account is probably in the name of a student who thinks he has a nice cushy commission paid job to accept money and forward it to another account. A nice arrest and a few hours in the cells for money laundering may make him cooperate and spill some beans.
