!!ALERT!! Fraud and Scam- Crystal Sands Tourism - Fake - Be Alert !!!!!

By mayank1211fzd

Dear All,

At the entrance of Old Airport Ansar Gallery, I got a guy who handed over me a coupon and collected the details from Crystal Sand and tourism. Later i got a call from a lady and she told her name Ekta (not sure if its her real name) from phone number +97477069766 on 4th November. She mentioned about the visit to Crystal Sands tourism to talk about the plans and gifts coupons. and I was asked to come with Spouse.   

Me along with family visited there and they started with all big words of offers started from 24K plan and many other offers along with that. Rizwan and Rajat they attended us. We kept saying no and then they came up with lowest plan of 7750. We were hesitant and the amount of pressure crated we signed up and soon I started following up benefits they promised. For first few days they picked up the phone and responded but now none of the number is getting connected. 

they looted my hard-earned money.  Please do not fall for any such type of offers you are getting anywhere. If you get calls from Crystal Sands tourism or any other such companies, it’s a big NO. do not entertain such fraud calls. 


They are looters and here to loot the innocent people. me and along with me one more family got deceived. I am feeling pity and cursing these people who are shameless and looters of someone else hard-earned money. 

 Sharing the Numbers as got 


HR Number and Name:  Ekta  +974 7706 9766

Representative: Rajat (not sure but could be a fake name): 66952720/77358498


on visit found a post over the door mentioning 

"OFFICE WILL CLOSE DUE TO WEEKLY OFF" For Any ASSISTANCE CALL US ON +974 77610744 or +97477633438".


And guess what it keeps rining only and no one picks up the phone.

!! Please be aware!! They are merciless and will not think twice before looting of your money. 


please do take care.

@The_Parker I think you have no intention to help the victims. You are talking as if you are an Employee of the scam company, crystal sands tourism. Why would crystal sands accept charge back request? If the bank accepts charge back request acknowledging it is a fraudulent transaction we will get our money back. Crystal Sands Tourism and all their minions going to feel the heat soon. I will come to your house and kick your ass before the police arrests you.

Watch your door!!! I will be the one knocking it next.

By The_Punisher• 27 Nov 2023 22:22

When you are calling to the bank tell them you want to raise the dispute.. dont use term chargeback.. if you will become successful in raising dispute.. you will get your money..

By The_Punisher• 27 Nov 2023 22:21

I came to know crystal is accepting all the chargeback requests.. there account is in minus 50k.. so few people might have got chargeback..

PS- dont ask sources.. whoever got the chargeback, please post here..

Charge back is the only way to get back money.. that too only last six months transactions only.. kindly post this in your groups.. every single day delay in raising disputes will reduce the chances of getting money back..

What are the possible categories that a dispute may fall under?

Dispute may fall under the following categories:

⦁ Unauthorized / Fraudulent transaction

⦁ Transaction failed but debited

⦁ Paid by alternate means

⦁ Duplicate billing on the card for the same transaction at the merchant outlet for the same value

⦁ Goods not delivered by merchant/services not rendered

⦁ Non-receipt of refund after the turnaround time committed by the merchant

⦁ Credit not processed by the merchant

⦁ Cash not dispensed from the ATM

The CDF provides the categories for which additional documents may be required.

Choose this category..

Good not delivered by marchant/Services not rendered..

Please inform anyone from HSBC bank

Dear All,

I came to know crystal sands team left from the country.. now they left the country.. we all lost our money.. i called to the bank for charge back.. but as per bank they accept disputes wirhin 6 months period..

Whoever have transaction within 6 months apply for disputes.. as their office is close they will not able to send necessary documents like agreement id copy charge slip to the bank.. and bank has to accept your charge back.. it takes around 4 weeks to get your refund on cards..

PS- your card must be visa or mastercard.. irrespective of debit or credit..

How to request a chargeback

If asking the merchant for a refund didn't work, request a chargeback with your credit card issuer. Many card issuers let you dispute transactions by phone, mail or online. You may also be able to submit a dispute directly through your card issuer's mobile app.

When you submit a chargeback, you may need to include supporting documents, such as copies of a receipt, invoice, contract and any communications you had with the merchant. Anticipate that the dispute can last up to 90 days or two billing cycles, whichever is shorter.

Once you submit a chargeback request, the exact process varies depending on your card issuer, network and situation, but generally results in some back-and-forth between various parties. Here's an example of how the process may go, according to Experian:

You file a chargeback request.

Your card issuer reviews the dispute and will decide if it's valid or if you have to pay. If your issuer accepts the dispute, they'll pass it on to the card network, such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover, and you may receive a temporary account credit.

The card network reviews the transaction and either requires your card issuer to pay or sends the dispute to the merchant's acquiring bank.

The merchant's acquiring bank takes one of two actions: Sends the dispute back to the card network and says the issuer is at fault or forwards the dispute to the merchant.

If the merchant gets it, they either agree to pay for the transaction or dispute the chargeback.

If the merchant disputes the chargeback, there may be more back-and-forth as the merchant, acquiring bank and card issuer try to settle the matter. But if the merchant agrees to pay, the process is a bit smoother.

At the end of the day, the card network decides who pays. A successful dispute will deem the temporary credit you received to become permanent.

This is only way to get refund.. dont waste your time and call the bank and raise disputes..

Hello all,

Please raise this company's fraud to info@moci.gov.qa

I approached them and they took all the details. I am sure if more people write to them, some action may take place. Also, if ministry is vigilant (after getting such mails), they may scrutinize such frauds and may not allow to practice. Its time to act, not just putting post here. Please rise and speak, express and believe in Qatar ministry.

Together we can fight against such companies.
