Recently, A Family Member Was The Victim Of A Holiday Voucher Scam Advertised On Tv, Who Can I Contact?

While watching TV my relative saw a voucher deal advertised by myweekaway.com.au for 8 nights in Thailand for $399 through Absolute hotels. The add said go to the site, and register details for someone to contact you, which my relative did, thinking if it was advertised on TV it would be above board.
After three really pushy phone calls, she eventually gave in and endued up purchasing the voucher. After speaking with me, and her own gut feeleings we thought this was most likely a scam and I advised her to go to the bank and cancel the transaction. Unfortunately, the money had already been withdrawn, and the bank teller advised us that the company that charged the money was ‘insolvent”. I am yet to contact the company, but was wondering, who I would speak to in Australia/New South Wales, about reporting this add and hopefully having it removed.

    Call the bank and talk to some one in the fraud department. They may be able to do more than a bank teller. And you can report it to the attorney generals office, but that’s all you can do. Your relative may have learned a very expensive lesson.
