Simon travels Inc / Muhammad Harris Travel Fraud

1 New York, NY, United States Review updated:

Date of Incident: July 04, 2015
Business Name: Simon Travels Inc (Muhammad Harris)

Description of Incident:
My name is Priya. Sunil (from Simon Travels Inc) contacted me for booking the flights. The travel plan is for my parents who are supposed to travel from Chennai, India to Cary, NC. On April 30th 2015, sunil sent me e-tickets for British airlines with a total amount of $1760. He asked us to check the confirmed tickets on airlines website and to pay the amount. He wanted me to do a wire transfer to the following account (as the travel agency account got some problem):

Account Holder Name: Muhammad Harris
Bank name: Wells Fargo Bank
Routing number: [protected]
Account number: [protected]
Account type: MMA Checking
Address:2398 Brighton 9th Street, 7R, Brooklyn, NY, US 11235
Phone:[protected]

After checking the tickets on-line, I transferred the amount to the above account.

But On June 4th 2015 when my parents went in to board the flight, the airline personnel asked them to show the credit card that they have used to buy the tickets. When my parents told the staff that they have booked the tickets through an agent, the staff stopped them from boarding the flight saying that the agent has used a fraud credit card for tickets booking and they can't help.
In the meanwhile I tried to reach Sunil to see whether he can help us, but of no use. Initially he answered my call, but after knowing the problem he stopped answering my calls/emails. And I have booked new tickets again for my parents travel.

Till now they are not answering my calls and/or emails. They have not returned my money yet. I do have the proofs of all email conversations and money transfer. Please help!!!

Desired Resolution: Return my amount of $1706

Thanks-,
Priya.

    Even I had booked Qatar airways flight ticket on Jun 16 2015 through
    claimed agent(Simon Masih aka Muhammad Harris) who said he is from Simon Travels New
    York.We received ticket confirmation email from Qatar airways on Jun
    19.And now when I enquired on Aug 3 2015 about my reservation with
    Qatar airways they told me the ticket has been cancelled on Jun 24
    2015 without my consent. They said it was a charge back transaction
    which led them to cancel it and refunded the amount to credit card
    which Simon Masih used(visa card ending in 0744).I was not informed
    about this by neither Qatar airways nor Simon Masih and I was not
    refunded the amount by Simon Masih.

    Called him several times sent him email(simontravelsinc@outlook.com)
    but he never responded back.His text me app phone number is
    917-266-0247.When I enquired with Qatar airways they told me that
    Simon Masih had booked the ticket online using visa ending in 0744
    which is not my credit card.
