1800SkyrideFraudulent websites!

J Review updated:

This company runs websites claiming to be in every metropolitan city in America and the are now adding websites that even claim to be located at the more rural areas and towns. If another skydive center or "Adventure" type sports venues builds a website, within a very few days, 1800 skyride will pop up with a new website claiming to be in either the same location as the company who's website they have cloned or they will be advertising to be within a very shot distance of the legitimate company. They sell fraudulent gift certificates for Skydive Centers that don't exist. For example, The real "Bowling Green Skydiving Center" who's website is spelled the same is located at the Russellville/Logan Co. Airport, located about 20 minutes south of Bowling Green, Kentucky. The 1800skyride website is "Skydiving Bowling Green" in which they will not tell a perspective customer where they are located until after they have charged your credit card a $50 cancellation fee and a $50 bad weather insurance fee. They then tell the customer that they are located in Cedartown, Ga. That's a five hour ride from Bowling Green, Kentucky.

They are doing these same advertising tactics all over the country in every state in America including Alaska. They also have websites that claim to be a skydive center that serves a whole state, ie; "Tennessee Skydiving Center", "Kentucky Skydiving Center", "Skydive Ohio" and even "Skydive Utah"
The best advise I can give is to be sure where a Skydive Center is located before you spend any money. If they will not tell you without first asking where you are located, you are probably talking to 1800Slyride.

Any reputable Skydive Center will either have the location with directions on their home page, or they will at least have a "Button" or link that will take you to a page that has the location and directions to their Skydive Center.

Buyer be very aware!!!
