Perhaps you remember that I warned of the deceitful activities of a so-called Tour Guide Luis in Sulawesi in August 2009. I have pointed to the risk in general also on my web page.
Now I got the report of an Italian guest once more today who had fallen into the trap of this man.
He had made a tour from Manado to the Togian Islands and to Makassar with a group in August 2009. They became acquainted with Luis Molindo over a business partner ( Mrs. M. P.) from Italy. On recommendation of her they paid in advance. They were then let down without the promised services in the middle of the island. Returned to Manado they reported the person to the police.
Therefore once again: Be wary of this Luis! He stays preferentially in the area of Poso, Gorontalo, Manado. Possibly under another name. But it is not ruled out either that he offers his services in the room Bali, Flores or Komodo now. And don't let yourself be fooled by his kind and innocent appearance!
