      The part where she had to wire the money to a bank account is as obvious a warning as you can get. Yet, people keep their rose-coloured glasses on once they see something too good to be true.

      Though I will admit that the homepage looks pretty good.

      But this should be automatic rejection for digital manipulation, lol.

        also check out their fleet, the numbers don't make sense, or they are the only airline to own a 757-200SLR, and the 743 pic is photochopped as u can see above

              To answer your question:

              According to the Internet WHOIS record (obtained from www.allwhois.com), the web site is registered by someone in Greece through a Greek web registration company. The site is, however, hosted at the location ns1.isol-servers.com. Then I checked the IP of the location, and traced it back to, well, Houston, TX, USA. So, in short, the site is hosted in USA and it is thus the responsibility of the American Government to handle this. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with Macau at all. The Macau government cannot do anything about this.

              It's a shame that its website is developed to be more easily navigated and looked much better than the websites of many real airlines.

              Plus, anyone should have been alarmed seeing that kind of crazy price from a company which you haven't heard. But since people are still falling into those age-old Nigerian email tricks, I can see how there will be people falling into this. Although I suggest them to go to have an IQ test.
