Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Arik Air Ticketing Agent Scam... set up  their website to look like the proper Arik Air site to fool UK customers into thinking that  they are buying their tickets from Arik Air UK. 

 Why would a legitimate business do this?

My  wife and I have set up this web page to tell the world our story so that you  dont fall for the same scam that we fell for.

The scam is simple.

. They consistently quote really cheap deals on their web page.

. You call them to book You offer to pay by credit card,  they bump the rate up by 40%

. They ask you to pay into their account

. Once you pay into their account,  they start to tell you all sorts of stories about the airline increasing the  rate.

. You smell a rat and ask for a  refund.

. They start to stall you.

We have been trying to get a  refund now for 13 weeks.
