Hey, guys,

this is very, very sad... I'm very happy I read your comments and that I decided to chek on line who this Mr Ben was... absolutly a criminal. He must be registered under different names, email adresses and so on... he belongs to jail.
He just answered an email I sent him, and the whole thing sounded very suspicious to me, so, here is the proof...
Thank you all!
This was his email...

This is a scam! I feel sorry for the people who actually try to book it. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Girls/Guys, watch out for predators!
