Ripped Off by Tanzanian company JABIR Tours & Safaris

Jump to last reply

After lengthy email exchanges we paid Jabir Ally (Ali) of JABIR TOURS & SAFARIS, based in Zanzibar, the deposit for our tanzanian safari. Shortly after we sent the money to his account, we received an email saying he had sent our money as requested to Uganda to feed orphans and could we send more money please.
We investigated and then asked for the (small) remainder of the money he had supposedly NOT sent to Uganda be returned to us, but NO he said, it was against his policy to refund money. This man, Jabir Ali, conned us completely, despite my having contacted referees who had used his services previously.

STAY AWAY.

Another tour agency I requested a quote from, STANLEY & STOPPER, sent me an email attempting to extort money from us for a sick sister or someone,after I told them we would not be going with them.
Bunch of sharks out there...
If anyone would like more information about this, I am happy to provide details.
cheers
