Travel Agency Scam in Hoi An
29th August, 2007
Especially if you are a woman or women traveling alone, please DO NOT use the Hoi An Tourist Office (on the corner of Tran Phu and Le Loi, 78 Le Loi) in Hoi An to book a taxi to the airport. Their driver, Chum (license plate 8565), will pretend to get really pissed off about something and drag you (and throw your stuff) onto the side of a rural road and refuse to take you to your destination unless you pay him extra money. He is a big guy, absolutely insane and a very dangerous, and although the travel agency is well aware of this, they still make people go with him. Avoid using their services; there are plenty of other travel agencies in town!!!

Got another one... if you are looking for motobike tours from HoiAn... do not use EASY RIDERS HOIAN.... they have just ripped off the name from a reputable outfit in Dalat...... we tried a trip... and were so fed up after the first day that we had to quit... they took us 2hours the wrong way.. to a scamming filthy hotel (we got a cheaper offer next door).... tried to change our mode of transport to 100cc motorcycles on a mountainous dangerous road.... and refused to give a refund....

Your post demonstrates your lack of knowledge / ignorance about VietNam. This scam happens elsewhere in VN, too.
Likely the 'Easy Rider' you found was a plump travel agent. He is definitely NOT a genuine ER member. He is actually a 'travel agent'.
The REAL ER's have an office in the old section. All real ER's know the name of the founders son (Leo) and that the founder is an American.
