Run run run away!!!

No contact address or phone number on their website. And, the website is registered to someone using her (actual) employer's email address, a realtor/estate agent.

And, having run away, don't get seduced by completely unrealistic "cheap" fares from 3rd party online bookers. Book directly with the airline,

Yup a scam.

It looked highly suspicious when I tried a dummy booking for a flight next week that I've already booked with the airline.

Thanks for the extra info. And, please report it to law enforcement. In the UK that's Action Fraud.

A Scam, total scam, but I am taking his further even if it means to hire a lawyer, I am first contacting the Polish Embassy, then the Internet scam fraud and then to the FBI. Jennifer who I don' know who is it is a scammer, J. Orozco I don't know if the person is real but hell I am going to shut this site down.

This is serious and I will do what ever it takes to shut this site don so that others do not get duped.

These guys are a bunch of scammers, "DO NOT I MEAN DO NOT EVEN GO CLOSE TO THIS SITE - ALL THE FARES STORED ARE A JOKE - The site is a scam, the fares are unreal, and our bookings go to another Internet source, sooner or later you will get an email requesting for bank transfer with an excuse that your credit card has not gone thru. Their Bankers - BANK ZACHDONI are partners in he internet fraud. I am going after reservebuudy as well as Bank Zachdoni and I will get them even if it means that I will spend more than what I lost on my ticket.

Well, the very best of luck retrieving any of your money.

I think you have an impossible task, contacting the Polish Embassy will not get you very far.

Why on earth did you book with these people in the first place, was it to save a few bucks?

Do what most experienced travellers do and book direct with the airlines and avoid the scammers.

I'm not sure but I doubt they are in Poland. Simply that's where the money is going.

They seem to say they are a trademark of K10 ltd, which I am not sure where it's but their phone number under contact us appears to be in Washington, ( USA) which is one of the states that does permit limited companies. However their timings appear to be aimed at the uk, but they say " utc" which would not be common, peiple usually say gmt.

So the company may be American. They people themselves may not be. They could be anything.

The polish account will be opened under a false name, once they have the money in there, they will just transfer it out and close the account, so they won't be traceable. Having it traced by the banks and police is not going to be easy.

I wish you the best of luck and let us know how you get on, but also wonder, what possessed you to give these people your money? The website is full of big red flags.

Why on earth would you think that shutting this site down will stop people duped? Do you know how easy it is to open another website ?

People will stop being duped when they run out of stupid people who see an advert for low prices and whose brain switches off. Never going to happen unfortunately.

Very true joe, they will just open another website. I also think it will be difficult to do, sadly enough. People really have to help themselves as well and only buy from reputable companies on line and do some checks. The website, as I said, has some serious red flags that would or should stop many people using them.

I also suspect k10 ltd is a made up company, it's purely a scam.
