The theme of fraudulent travel agents disappearing with tourists' money has received a new sound under the new conditions. Social networks are discussing the scandal surrounding the Russian deputy, who decided to take a vacation in the UAE, but was deceived by a travel agent who fled with his money to Poland. The Amber Mash telegram channel tells the details.
Thus, the defendants in the case are the Kaliningrad ex-head of the city, now the Russian senator Alexander Yuroshchuk and two more local not the last persons – city council deputy Alexander Kolodyazhny and the ex-director of Kaliningradteploseti Edward Kurovsky. According to the TC, the deputies planned to spend the winter holidays in the UAE with their families.
“We chose trips to Dubai, from December 24 to January 4. Yaroshchuk and his family booked a five-star Jumeirah Al Naseem suite for 3.5 million rubles. Kolodyazhny and Kurovsky – the Kempinski premium hotel on Palm Island – for 2 and 1.4 million, respectively, ”says a Mash source. In total, according to the Telegram channel, the deputies spent 7 million rubles on vacation. “The senator turned to the familiar director of the local travel agency Star Travel, Alexander Shabanov,” the source clarifies.
As it turned out, only in order to find out before the flight that they had been “thrown”. According to Amber Mash, on the eve of departure, tourists received “the most unpleasant news”: there will be no luxury holidays. After a statement was written against the travel agent who declared that he was bankrupt, an even more interesting detail turned out – back in November, the travel agent left Russia and fled – in all likelihood, with all the money, and to Poland. He was last seen at the border checkpoint in Mamonovo.
