1800 Skyride / Scam!!!

1 United States Review updated:

I made a booking through Skyride for a booking and when I reached the drop zone, I was told that these guys are under litigation and hence I was asked to pay separately and get a refund from Skyride.

When i called Skyride for a refund, they only refunded me the skyride amount but charged me $125 fopr services provided!!!

    My wife purchased a certificate for Stock Car Racing with 1800 Skyride for $299.00. The merchant indicated that Stock car racing would be redeemable in New Jersey within a 2-year period. I have attempted to redeem the certificate numerous times. I have been told Stock car racing is never available in New Jersey. I was now told I have to go to Connecticut to redeem the certificate for Stock Car Racing or I will loose my money. The total value of the certificate was $299.

    I too was scammed by 1800 skyride and got the information below. Please call these people everyday, it is the only way to get anywhere.


    1800SKYRIDE is no longer answering their phones or scheduling rides. However, they do have money, your money, a lot of it!

    If you have been ripped off by 1-800-SKYRIDE / Thrill Planet (Headband LLC.) owned by Fred Burke and Lilliam Dejesus and would like your refund, you can get your money. Please do not let them steal from you! There are funds available to compensate you. Many have received refunds with interest and you may be entitled to penalties!

    Their lawyers contact information is below and contacting them is sometimes fruitful. In the case that they do not wish to pay you then:

    All you have to do is file a small claims court case against the people who stole your money. This is easy. Simply go the magistrate court nearest your home and fill out the small claims form. You are due three times the amount you paid to purchase the fake Headband LLC tickets, so fill in that amount. Make sure you serve the parties listed below by sending a copy to them at their address in Dallas Georgia. That is it.

    Many have received refunds so far! It is far less expensive for them to do this than to send their high powered legal team (listed below) to defend your case. You are guaranteed to win!

    You will likely hear from one of their attorneys right away and they will send your money!

    In the event that they stop issuing refunds, you can take your judgment and send a copy to:

    Chase Bank
    5218 Jimmy Lee Smith Parkway #111

    Hiram, GA 30141

    Chase bank will freeze their funds and send the money to you!

    Serve these people that have your money:
    Fred Burke and Lilliam Dejesus d/b/a
    HeadbanD LLC / 1-800-SKYRIDE /
    304 Trotter Way
    Dallas, Ga. 30132

    Fred Burke is involved with the Paulding County Sheriff's Office

    Sergeant Fred Burke

    247 Industrial Way North Dallas, GA 30132

    (770) 443-3010

    If you do not feel like going to this trouble then at least write their lawyers asking for a refund. You may get some relief this way. Good luck getting your money back from them! If you work at it, you will win! Don't let them get you.
    These are the offices of their lawyers should you choose to contact them.
