Helicopter Ride Scam,

Just as a follow up - here is a link to a website that also shows that they are a scam.


They also go by Meicer Aviation I think.

We were really looking forward to doing this. Do not wire them money. They do not take credit cards should have been a sign.

I dont know the details of your problem, CF, but I hope you reported it to someone like PROFECO. If you have a legitimate claim and can back it up, they are very good at getting refunds.

We reported to PROFECO in the state of Quintana Roo as well to their federal office. Everything has been taken on file - that's about it!

The guy operating it also operates a hotel that got closed down several time. - Very shady character.

And we are not newbies but operate also in Mexico since 10+ years and brought more as 10'000 clients, mainly from Europe there.

We are out of almost 50'000$, have transfer receipts and the whole e-mail conversation with that people.

The folks (not the website where the link goes to, that has been made to make people aware and hopeful saves others the get #$%^& royal.

So all we can say is stay away from them. and in case somebody thinks we have not an "legitimate claim" I'll gladly provide a link where the whole story inclusive documents is online to see (scan and screenshot of the communication)
