I was a victim of M & K travel recently. I booked 4 tickets for travel to India on Jan 27th 2006 on Lufthansa.Manny told me they accept only check. So I sent them a check for $5113.00 on Jan 6th and they cashed the check the very next day. They would block these tickets in Lufthansa each day with a new confirmation number as the old ones would cancel out.When I called them after they cashed the check to see when they would make my reservation Paul and Manny were so rude to me , they didnot give me any answer and hang up the phone on me. I contacted them quite a few times to ask why they are not making reservations yet as they cashed the check and they would give me no answer . Finally Paul and his son Manny didnot make any reservation for us on Lufthansa , what I realized is they were double booking reservations and in that process would bump someone off to accomadate me or vice-versa. But when I contacted Lufthsnsa, what they said is, the agent didnot purchase any tickets , they just blocked the reservation. I was going for a family emergency and couldnot afford to loose time . So I tried calling them lot of time as my trip date was getting closer to check the status of my reservation and I had no response from them on phone or email. Finally a couple of days before my traval date, when I didnot have reservations on Lufthansa, and when I didnot get any response from them either my phone or email I contacted the Fairfield police and then came to know that this guy Paul was arrested on Jan 20th 2006 for cheating lot of travellers and I had no hope to get tickets. So I had to immediately in a day contact another travel agent and make reservation at a higher price for my travel. I went to India and came back, but these guys really messed up my trip and also created such a hassle before my travel that I can never forget. These guys have no values, as I was mentionign to them that please dont mess up my reservation as I have an emergency to go to and cannot afford to miss, but still they cheated. These guys are a bunch of "CHEATS".
If I read these postings on this site before I wouldn't have fallen trap to this. Now that I am back from India I am looking at how to recover my $5113.00 back.
