There are a lot of these doing the rounds at the moment. They work on using compromised credit cards which have not yet been blacklisted, for immediate departures, typically for the next day. I have had a fair bit of fun at the expense of these scum, including having some turn up at the airport with invalid e-tickets (oh dear, must have got the name wrong.) and getting a slew of credit cards blocked.

I've been called worse than that by unmasked scammers, unfortunately publishing some of their emails would get me banned even if it is only 'quoted' speech.

Someone once used one of my credit cards to book tickets from Milan. Unfortunately for them, once I'd grilled my wife on her spending habits and the 1000 unposted transaction on the on-line summary, I called the card company to ask what it was, so I probably caught it after first use because I'd logged on to the website to check something else. There were several more attempts to use the card after it was cancelled, apparently.
