Warning - http://airflight-deals.com is a SCAM

.... starting this thread in the hope people spot it on search engines ...

Warning - http://airflight-deals.com is a SCAM.

This is another site from the scammers that brought us flightbuddyonline,.com, cheap-flights-deal.com and more recently cheaper-airflights.com, and more information can be found below -

The scam works by offering a credit card "option", but then stating that credit card processing is "temporarily unavailable", then that Paypal is unavailable and seducing you into paying by bank transfer or Western Union.

1) Never pay for air tickets using bank transfer or Western Union. Once the money has left your account it's gone and there is no way of retrieving it.

2) There is no such thing as a "non-activated e-ticket". Anyone can make a reservation before ticketing that appears on an airline website, and you can view it and select seats. But if the airline is never paid the reservation disappears.

3) If you have sent money by bank transfer to this operation, or you have been sent bank transfer instructions, contact the police. In the UK use http://www.actionfraud.police.uk

<<No previous posts, no reviews - I. Short, no history with TA,>>

Just what you'd expect from someone who was idiotic enough to wire money direct to a fraudulent operation. A known fraudulent setup I'll remind you.

<< plus more but I don' t know of I should specify right now.>>

How can there be "more" if there is this single post? The only strange thing here, frankly,Is your post with vague accusations somehow claiming that a post reporting a known fraudulent organisations website which again I'll remind you, has now been closed, is "suspicious".

I'm reporting #15, #17 and #19 as off topic. As I see it they're a distraction from the main purpose of this thread which is to warn about scam websites operated by criminals. Even if the particular website has been shut down. Others will open with similar names and so this thread should not go off topic and get zapped.

I don't think the Israeli police or the US FBI will be able to help. These scam sites are usually hosted in Russia or China.

I would not spend too much time on this.

The website has gone, the IP address will just be a hosting company that hosts lots of websites and is not responsible for what these websites do.
