Kilimanjaro Crew (John Samson Shem)

About Kilimanjaro Crew (John Samson Shem), SCAM !!
MUST READ
Haven't done the hiking yet but Kilimanjaro Crew (John Samson Shem) is shown as scam artist under www.kilimanjaro-review.com (http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293750-i11370-k7982691-Kilimanjaro_Crew_John_Samson_Shem_SCAM_DON_T_BOOK_W_THEM-Kilimanjaro_National_Park_Kiliman.html) as well as www.tripadvisor.com .. seems like he is using the same technique over and over. He has pretty good web site and information there is constantly changed (different from update) and note that there is no customer review on his web site, if you go to youtube.com, there are a couple of videos that are uploaded by John but you can easily tell that those are not for his team, no customers are actually talking on those videos. I read from www.tripadvisor.com that John is a good web designer, so he can FOOL you from his website.

On his website (www.kilimanjarocrew.com), his phone numbers are not listed most of times, that tells us that he doesn't want to be chased after he gets his deposits. I sent my deposit of $287. He only asked 5% deposit. His rate seems reasonable and he only ask for 5% deposit, I trusted this locally owned and operated but PLEASE DO NOT SENT YOUR DEPOSIT via WESTERN UNION, you will loose your deposit . . . some customer deposited $1000 (same way via WESTERN UNION).

Hope this article catches you on time !!
Thank you for those who warned us previously, so at least I can save from loosing all my trip $$.
