I must warn you all about a scam that happen to us while holidaying over in Sri Lanka ,when we arrived at the airport we were met by a
Man who we thought was the guy that we had been talking to over the net, sorting out our two week tour from north to south.
No this was his friend only his wife was ill so he sent me !!!! Quote “
Now I don’t know about you but I was looking at a guy I have never spoken to, no track record to speak of, so what would you do?
We went to our 1st hotel all the way he kept saying you have
Money? you must pay all the money as my boss will not be happy, we told him that he would have to wait till we got to the hotel and I would make my mind up if we carry out the rest of our journey with him, thank god my mum and dad did not use this guy as they would have just freaked out.
So on the night this guy who we had been giving for our tour asked for the money ,saying he had spoken to his boss and we had to pay ,why did he not email me before we flew over ..Or could have at least spoken to me on the phone...
He would not speak to me at any time and we overheard him speak to our driver many times,
This driver was recommended by someone on here a DE no names mention ,but when I got back he told me he had spoken to our driver and would not recommend him again, just to shore this up he sent me many emails saying how sorry he was and he would do all the tours himself in the future and was going to send me $100 back asap...well guess what not a bean ,just a con so I would not put this on tripadvisor ,telling me that I would ruin his life ect ,I am sorry but if you what his name or need to check before you book p.m ..
Don’t be put off just be aware its happing more and more as sri lanka becomes more poplar.
