Airportlostandfound.com

Has anyone used this service? I did a few days ago and I believe it is a scam. In the FAQ it tells u that u can get an immediate refund upon clicking on the link to that effect but there is no such link. Furthermore there is no way to write to them and establish any kind of contact other than filing a lost and found claim form for which u receive no confirmation other than a hefty fee charge confirmed by Paypal. Has anyone had any kind of experience with them good or bad? Thx BB

But, personally I'd stay away...

Thanks so much for the info. Would you happen to have an address, e-mail or snail mail, or telephone number where I could reach them. I would like to have them remove my claim for that 'browse claim list' but there is no way to contact them other than filing a claim. Thx for your help.

Check your email receipt from Paypal, it should have the merchants email address for any purchases you make online.

Clicking on the 'Contact Us' link gets no contact information at all.

I wouldn't do business with a company that tries to avoid communicating with customers.

I used the service before but they had no luck locating my sons beloved stuffed pony tony. I did get a refund after 90 days which is a good thing, but I would rather my sons toy.

Looking at the website, it seems highly likely that it's a scam. In my opinion.

There are no contact details.

There's no mention of a charge, other than in one of the FAQ, about a refund if the item isn't returned.

There's no "I've found an item" option.

And I'd be sceptical about putting my phone number and email address on a site which anyone can access.

I am very disturbed. I asked airportlostandfound.com to find my watch that was lost at JFK. They charged me about $80. I subsequently found the watch myself by contacting Security at JFK, which had sent it to British Airways (we were flying on United). I went back to the website which says that they guarantee a refund if they don't find the item or if you find it yourself, but they provide no way to make a request for a refund. The "contact" link provides a blank. There is no "request refund" link, despite their allegation that one can click on such a link to obtain a refund. My suspicion is that the entire website is a scam and should be shut down by the legal authorities. I would caution anyone against using this site until they provide a more transparent way to obtain a refund.
