Too good to be true
A Sammamish man called police Dec. 17 to report that he had been duped into buying fake plane tickets by a 46-year-old Issaquah man who was acting as a travel agent.
The victim was trying to fly a family member from Kenya to Seattle and could only find tickets online for upwards of $2100.
Friends suggested he talk to the suspect, who allegedly promised to find a ticket for around $1100.
The victim then transferred money into the man’s bank account, according to the police report. When the victim double checked the status of the flight they discovered that the booking didn’t exist. The case remains under investigation.
