Cops arrest man said to have conned 5-star hotels

A FORMER travel agent who had allegedly conned several five-star hotels in Kuala Lumpur was caught after a security staff recognised him and alerted the police last week, reported Tamil Nesan.

It said the 41-year-old man would pose as a travel agent, approach tourists and offer to reserve hotel rooms in Kuala Lumpur.

The man would call hotels to make reservations and ask the tourists to pay him cash for the rooms.

He would then fax the booking confirmation to the hotel on a travel agency letterhead together with a deposit slip indicating the amount had been banked into the hotel’s account.

It said the man would bank in just RM10, and the hotel would only discover this when bank statements are received at the end of the month. Five to six hotels had complained about the man but only three lodged police reports.

There are very few cities in India that can boost of a rich legacy and unique and exciting diversity as that of Hyderabad. Be it the fascinating and captivating forts and ancient monuments, the inimitable existence of the age old culture of the Nawabs, the delicious and mouth watering Hyderabadi cuisine, or the new born hard core business aspect, every facet of this city is a persona in itself. Emerging like a phoenix as the next big thing in the Indian business circle, the hotels in Hyderabad have also upgraded to compete with any international hotel on a given day. Most of the premium Hyderabad hotels have all the standard business features although there are exclusive Business hotels in Hyderabad nowadays and the number is ever increasing. Recently the Andhra Pradesh government gave the 24-hour liquor license to the four star, five star and the five-star deluxe hotels in Hyderabad. This step has brought the Hyderabad hotels nearer to the standards of the international hotels.
