The travel agent who cheated us:




If you are or who you know is a victim please contact me [email protected]!!! I’M NOT REMOVING THIS POST TILL MONEY IS RETURN AND JUSTICE IS DONE!

Early this year, Mr Tan (my hubby) saw some one selling her BKK tickets in hardwarezone forum, so he message the thread starter and the person direct my hubby to this lady, a freelance travel agent ~ Kim, aka Bambi Kee aka Kee Kim Noi.
Who claims that she has a lot of linkage with travel agents and airline company and have helped a lot of people book their tickets.
At first, it seems like everything went well, until few days before the trip,Mr Tan realized that there is no air tickets and our hotel booking was not done!
She was not contactable after that, but she contacted my hubby 2-3 days later, claiming that she was in Malaysia. So she manage to convince my husband that she will settle everything and ensure that we can go to BKK.
Some how she manage to settle it, but we went 2-3 days later then the original date, and from Novotel hotel to a 3 star hotel.

I told my husband do not use her service again. Apparently this was turn into a deaf ear, because he feel that she has tried her best to do service recovery and we still went to BKK as plan except for few days later.
So he engaged her service again when my Taiwan relatives came to Singapore. He told her to help us book hotel and some tour package. All along my husband contacted her through phone and transfer the money via iBanking. He keep telling me that she sound very confidence and knows what she is doing, thus he trust her. Not only that Mr Tan told her to get air tickets to Taiwan in Dec this year, as my parents and sister want to go over. She said she manage to get the tickets from SQ and in the later part she said there is promotion and managed to convince my hubby to buy some more air tickets to Taiwan for us and my fil and sil.

Again, few days before my relatives come to Singapore, SHE MIA AGAIN and REAPPEAR on the day my relatives arrived. She said she went for training and said she have everything in control and ask my husband to trust her. Was everything really under control? NO! When my husband called Changi hotel to confirm the payment and our booking, the hotel people told us that the hotel booking has not been paid! She claims that she have went down to make the payment but apparently not! My husband questioned Kim, she said she will make the payment ask him not to worry and trust her. So as per hotel policy, the staff need our credit card as a deposit. To our horror, we have been charged for the hotel stay after my relatives checked out! SHE DIDN’T MAKE THE PAYMENT!
The guided tour wasn’t even smooth flowing either as there is minor hiccups too, but it was settled.

So now Mr Tan money trip for Taiwan in Dec already stuck with her, I told him to get the money back. We book ourselves. Of coz he didn’t manage to, and later part she emailed him a booking to show that she has done the booking for our Taiwan trip!
Guess what last week SHE IS NOT CONTACTABLE AGAIN!!! Mr Tan tried calling her for few days, both her line was off, totally not contactable. I told him please call SQ and checked whether has our tickets been book.
SQ SAID NO, THE TICKETS WERE CANCELLED! Mr Tan checked that it was Formosa Travel agency ~ Vivian, who is handling the tickets. So Mr Tan called and ask him whether she know Kim and what happen to our tickets.
Vivian said the tickets were cancelled because NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE!!

I’m so pissed off this time round as it is less than a month to our Taiwan trips and this have to happen?! It’s so difficult to get the tickets in short period of notice! Before she went MIA, Kim told Mr Tan that she will get the tickets for him on Monday. HOW TO GET TICKETS WHEN THERE IS NO BOOKING FROM SQ!!

So Mr Tan contacted debt collectors and we have make police report and at the same time I’m trying to find who have been cheated by her. I have found a few victims and ask Mr Tan to contact them and discuss what can be done!
Yesterday she called my hubby, and ask him why he don’t trust her, and keep bombing Mr Tan, about trusting her and say she wouldn’t cheat his money blah blah. But when ask about the tickets, she say she trying to call SQ again. WTF!! She don’t have the tickets at all! Kim ask my husband to give her some time to get the tickets, I’m so piss and told my husband I need the tickets by today.
I called her and same she ask me to give her some time to get the tickets, she trying to call SQ. I told her to give me the name and contact person she has contacted with, she said she can’t give and insist I give her time to get the tickets. I gave her 4 hrs and need a answer by then.
4 hrs later she send a msg and said she will call me at 3pm.

At 3pm she called and told me she have tried calling SQ and the person who is going to sell her the millage can only contact her at 6pm and she has block a  booking with Garuda Indonesia. I told her give me the contacts of the SQ person and the agency contact number. She said NO, IS PERSONAL CONTACT!  I said you want my husband to trust you yet u can produce any evidence! I ask her cancel the SQ and just confirm the Garuda Indonesia airline and give me the tickets by today! She said she can’t have to wait for a few days. I said why few days?! She cannot give me a valid reason and insist I can only get my tickets back 2-3 days! U think I believe your shit! I told her cancel all the bookings and return my money!

Again she said I CAN’T RETURN NOW. What do you mean by you can’t return now, that is MINE money, YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO SPEND IT! It just shows that she has no money to pay the travel agent thus I have to wait for few days later to get my tickets!! She can’t give me a reason why she don’t have the money!
Is a total of $16k, the Changi hotel, Dec Taiwan trip and next yr BKK trip! Don’t ask me why Mr Tan has paid for next year trip. I was super piss off!!


I told her I have found other victims, she insist that there is no victims and have return their money! BULLSHIT!
I have found 4 victims and trying to contact one who has post in one of the scam blog.

I hope you readers can help me to spread this around and see who has cheated by her! Yes money can earn back, but it involves with my parents and my sisters money, SO I WANT IT BACK and justice must be done.

Family-friendly Attractions in Taipei

Our Taipei trip is only 3D2N and focuses mainly on the attractions and eateries in the Da’an district. We also travel around via public transport and purchased the unlimited Funpass.

On Siblings Rivalry and 6 Personal Solutions.

I would say siblings rivalry is the most challenging aspect. Even when I try not to take sides, one party will feel it’s unfair. This really requires a lot of patience and explanation of everyone’s point of view.
