Jamaican tour operator scammed tourists

As Jamaica struggles to maintain a good image and improve their tourist visitors to the island bad elements are making the task that more difficult.

Recently a Jamaican tour operator reportedly conned visitors into buying vacations in Cuba.

According to reports a group of tourists who visited Jamaica as volunteers and leisure seekers say they were hustled out of $360,000 by a man they trusted to provide their transportation.

“We were a group of young people from Australia, Turkey, Germany, Switzerland and Russia. During our travels, we met a Jamaican gentleman who introduced himself as a tour guide, with a business card and he offered us a package that includes accommodation, transport and meals. This package was really good for US$50 (J$6,078)per day. We all agreed and decided to use him,” German Vanessa Hadchiti told the Jamaica Star in an interview.

“During our travels, he offered tour guide packages to four people who were proceeding to Cuba. He took money for the tour package and upon arriving in Cuba, there was no tour guide. He also took money, promising to exchange it and never returned it,” the tourist related.

Sad, really sad that’s all we have to say.
