Fraud in the Travel Business

To all travel agencies =
Do not take any orders for airline tickets from persons pretending to belong to the Max Travel organisation and sending emails from or other yahoo / hotmail and similar addresses.

This person is calling himself Daniel Robert and he does not work for Max Travel Ltd. This person is requesting flights to and from African locations and is using stolen credit card details.
