"Just stealing money from your credit card!"

That should be easily dealt with by contacting your creditcard provider.

They usually reply here quite a bit. But you wouldn't know that since you apparently didn't check them out beforehand.

Hey ho.

what research did you do before you selected them to act as your agent? (I am guessing none....for info there are many shonky agents around which is why majority of people here would not touch them with a bargepole and book direct with the airlines) what have your credit card company said?

Besides the fact that the rant is short and sweet and provides no insight into what happened, but hopefully made the OP feel better for getting it off her chest, it should be clear by now that most online travel agents/airline ticket sellers are always risky versus purchasing direct from airlines. They earn so little per transaction that most can not afford well trained agents nor any kind of satisfactory help desk to help resolve issues when they arrive. And when travel issues arise, the airline will almost always refer you back to your travel agent where the ticket was purchased. Just imagine being in a far-off airport or country and needing to contact your online travel agent. It's usually a nightmare which is why the near unanimous opinion here and elsewhere is to always purchase your tickets direct from the airline. Otherwise in too many cases it ends up being a case of 'penny wise, pound foolish.' Good luck OP in resolving your issue.

OP should post more information about what happened to her with eScream that turned into an eNightmare. Most probably I think it is not reading the terms and conditions of the ticket sales. But that is for OP to disclose.

Or contact the police.

Stealing is a crime.

So is fraud.

Oh.

Hang on.

Do you really mean eDreams have stolen your money?

Or would it be more accurate to say you used this company without doing any research about them at all and have found that the price quoted isn't actually available?
