Final UPDATE: Expat Warning: Zenith Travel Closes its Doors

Event/PSA, EXPAT LIFE Add comments

By 3WM

As of Monday Sept 26th Zenith Travel has closed its doors. According to Ms. Kim of the Korean Tourist Organization, “The Seocho police have suspended their business license.” When asked about the alleged fraudster Wystan Kang, Ms. Park replied, “He is missing in action.” 3WM contacted Ms. Jin Young of the Korea Times and asked why that newspaper was taking advertising from Zenith. Her reply, “About two weeks ago we heard they had so many problems and we stopped taking the money.” In regards to all of the customers that Wystan Kang defrauded, Ms. Kim suggests to go to the Seoul Global Center for legal advice.  As cheated customers seek reimbursement 3WM will update those results. Contact 3wmseoul@gmail.com

Editor’s note:  Below is a run of emails to 3WM about Wystan Kang and Zenith Travel. We will continue to update readers about what appears to be an ongoing scam of getting foreigners to make deposits for air tickets.  We have tried to contact Wystan Kang  directly and he has not returned our phone calls.  We invite The Korea Times to clear up the discrepancy of why and if they are taking money from Zenith Travel while at the same time receiving complaints about Wystan Kang ripping off foreigners.

Here is the original 3WM story on Zenith Travel

To 3wm from Nick:

I booked in June for flight at the start of August and cancelled it on July 13th. I last talked to him maybe 2 weeks ago on his cell.

So is this the same guy who had a bad rep for selling bank details or had some Nigerian scam going on when he was in Itaewon maybe 4 years ago?

So when I researched Zenith I was told this.

1) They’ve been around for almost 20 years? This may or may not be true.
2) They’re affiliated to Red Cap Tour, the 3rd largest travel agency in Korea, so I am assured of refunds and know the company won’t go bust. Again this is worth checking out.
3) Wystan Kang, the guy that runs the company, used to a major player in Lotte Travel, the 2nd largest travel agency in Korea, so he has a lot of pull. Maybe?
4) He is 58 years old. He sounded old?

I hope this is of some use.

Just a quick note to say they are based in Gangnam exit 6 and not in Itaewon. He had some adverts in the Korean Herald but they were not running this weekend. I had contacted the Herald about Zenith a few weeks ago.

I experienced a similar problem but I was lucky and I got a refund although it seems I am one of the very few that did. I had problems from the start, he sent me a ticket which I instantly knew was not a ticket but a booking/reservation. When I asked him about it he lied to me so I sent the email to the Seoul reservations office for Thai airways and CC’ed him on it. It was only then that he actually ticketed my flight. The alarm bells were still ringing as the flight I was ticketed for cost 400k more than I had actually paid him. I was worried.

I then did some more research in July and found that he had a habit of cancelling customer’s flights at the last minute. This made me decide to cancel my August flight and get a refund. It would only cost 30,000 to cancel the flight and the total cost was 825,000. It wasn’t the end of the world. This I did by mail and he said it would take 3+ weeks, which is normal.

After 5 weeks I attempted to contact Zenith to chase up my refund. No response. I then mailed the airline who contacted Zenith on my behalf which seemed to produce some results. However, he then mailed me and told me the company was having financial difficulties and he couldn’t refund my 800,000 won. I wasn’t happy.
He ignored my calls and emails until I started to again CC the airline with the threat of police action in the heading. I then started calling his cell phone as late and as early as possible and for maybe 30-45 minutes at a time.

In summary he eventually called me back when I was at work. I told him we were not friends and it wasn’t his money to keep and demanded my money. I then told him that if I didn’t see a refund in the next 24 hours I would sit in his office for the next 2 weeks and wait for him. I made it clear that it wouldn’t be a fun meeting when we did eventually meet. He then gave me back 400,000k that day and the balance a couple of days later after some more calls and text messages. He sounded drunk when I talked to him, it was probably 11.00am. This was maybe 3 weeks ago.
I know many people are still owed money, best of luck getting it back.

My Time Line of complaints on Zenith Travel.

March 16, 2011   I contacted Zenith and asked for a reservation r/t to MCI from Seoul with a June 18, 2011 departure and an August 18 return with flexible dates.

Same day Winston Kang replied with a reservation and instructions to pay by March 18, which I did.

March 18, I followed Kang’s instructions and deposited the full amount in his account, and I have the bank receipt to prove it.

I did not receive a confirmation email until I had made several emails and phone calls to Kang. The warning bells should have been going off right then, but it was a new semester, and I was involved in an intense theater production on base, so I wasn’t focusing on it too much

March 29, 2011   I received an itinerary email that had a confirmation number on it.

June 13, 2011, when checking in to select a seat assignment, I discovered my confirmation number was not valid.  I called Delta and was told the reservation was cancelled by Kang.

Same day sent emails and made phone calls to Zenith office.

June 14   Kang sent me an email that said he could not get me a ticket and would have to give me a full refund

Same day Kang deposited 1,000,000 won in my account, leaving me with a promise to pay the remaining 649,000 won later

August 18 2011 After returning from US I repeatedly tried to contact Zenith. Kang did not respond to emails or calls, but I did talk to another victim sitting in Kang’s office. This is when I started to compile.

Sept 12, sent letters of complaint to KTO. Contacted Korea Times and asked them why they run Zenith Travel’s ad. Ask them if they know that he is a crook.

No further contact with Kang from his side until:

Sept 14, 2011,  Kang replies to my angry email in which I tell him that I am not some short time backpacker but I will try to get him shut down so he cannot cheat another person and prosecuted in court. He replies that he is not trying to cheat me but has had money problems and intends to pay me sometime.

Sept 15, received a reply from KTO to my Sept 12 email.

Sept 22, received another reply from KTO to my Sept 22 email, this time offering more help, including phone numbers and the proper place to make a complaint at the Seocho police station.

Same day, I sent another letter to the Editor of Korea Times blaming them for aiding Kang by running his advertisement

Sept 23, I went to Seocho police station after 4pm to make a complaint.

Sept 23, Today I sent another email to the Korea Tourism Org. and Mr. H J Kim responded…here is the email trail from that:

To H. J. Kim

Today I was shocked to see that the Korea Times is again running the advertisement for Zenith Travel.  I sent them an email letter to the Editor two weeks ago but they  did not publish it. Can you do anything to stop this aiding and abetting of a criminal?  Every day I am finding out that new victims are being ripped off by Kang Wystan of Zenith Travel. This is eventually  going to be made public in major news outlets outside of Korea.

How can this kind of criminal activity continue to take place on a daily basis in this “OECD” country? If you recall, the police at Gangdong refused to take my complaint, which leads me to believe that they are somehow connected with this criminal.

From Ms. Kim of the Korea Tourist Organization: On Zenith Travel and their ad in the Korea Times:

I just got back to my office holding the Korea Times in my hand. It is not tolerable. It is definitely criminal activity.

To find a way to solve this problem, I just spoke with a police officer in the Seocho Police Office(Tel : 3483-9366), he said all victims should bring an accusation against Mr. Kang.

If you need any help while you are visiting police office, please feel free to contact me at 02-735-0101

I will do my best to solve this issue.  Thank you Sincerely, H. J. Kim

TO  3WM.

We paid Wystan Kang W1,910,000 in May 2011 for two tickets to Hong Kong and a hotel for Sept 10-13.

He promised to issue the tickets on the 17, 26 and the 30 of August. Then I got an e-mail saying that my reservations for the flights to Hong Kong was cancelled and that I must pay another W857 000 per person to get us on flights with Korean Air.

Before Chuseok Zenith Travel could not/did not provide us with tickets, a hotel voucher or refund the money. To date Zenith Travel owes us W1,910,000.

I happened to find your posting online as I’ve been having major issues with this travel agency. Unfortunately I didn’t read all the negative reviews about this travel agency until it was too late!

I booked a trip for me and my sister with Mr. Kang from Seoul to Bankok for a flight on November 6th. He asked me to send him the money via bank transfer and didn’t think anything of it. I sent him the money on November 2nd. I started getting worried when I didn’t get a confirmation email from him. I then harassed him with emails and he finally sent me a confirmation email for an Air China flight (on September 7th) .

I called Air China the next day (September 8th) and they advised me that I was only reserved but no ticket was actually booked for me. I was very upset and tried calling Mr. Kang but there was no answer so I sent him another email asking him what the issue was. No email response or phone call.

Due to Chuseok I was unable to proceed with my inquiry. I tried calling Air China again last Friday, September 16th (or my Korean co-teacher did because they didn’t speak English) and she said that I wasn’t even on the list to fly to Bangkok on November 6th!

I then tried calling the two phone numbers I found 02-508-5781 and 02-594-2445 and left messages for Mr. Kang to call me back. I still haven’t’ heard back from him.

I sent him an email yesterday and tried calling numerous times today to no avail. I am really stressed and don’t know what else to do here! I sent Mr. Kang 718,000w for two tickets and I would feel terrible if I was unable to get any of my money back!

Can you offer any advice or any steps I can take at this point? Unfortunately I live in Masan and work at a public school. Going to Seoul to harass him in person will be quite difficult for me.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Regards,

Melanie Ramos

****************************************

Good day,

We are also trying to get Zenith travel to refund our two tickets and hotel booking money for the Chuseok vacation that never happened! We paid 1,910 won on the 17th of May and also received an E-ticket reservation, but when we wanted to confirm our flights he just told us it got cancelled and we need to pay again!!

We found your email address on the various sites telling their stories and warning future clients!  Can you please forward contact details of Itaewon’s Special Investigation (SI) branch?

We are also prepared to join a civil action case against the agency! It’s a shame that he is still in business!!!!!!

Hope to hear for you soon.

    Hi,

    We’ve got a story on this in tomorrow’s Korea Herald, although it seems you’ve dug up some interesting information also.
    Anyway, just wanted to say you should probably redact those ID numbers a bit better because the first six digits are just date of birth, and so doing it as above doesn’t offer much protection.

  2. JJ Says:

    Thorough piece on this situation. Seems like this guy is up shit’s creek along with the people he screwed (good luck getting the money through Korean courts). Funny that the Herald is running a piece now–got the scoop I guess; real journalists over there! And is 3WM now taking editorial advice from those guys? Don’t forget that independent media thing guys.

  3. Mizaru Says:

    Redact the f****** K. Herald.
    3WM does they merely watch.

  4. R.R. Says:

    I filed a complaint with the Seocho police office today….they said that they would be processing my complaint along with at least 3 other complaints that were just filed, and they would call me at a later date to come in and answer questions about it to the investigators. The other victims need to go there asap to join in with this investigation.

    Is your publication the Korean Herald still publishing advertisements promoting Zenith Travel Services?

    I hate to take advantage of this opportunity to advertise or promote, but I’d like to let all of you know that the USO has a contracted travel vendor that operates in our center here in Seoul (just about 400 meters north of Samgakchi station). The USO in Seoul sits outside of the military security gate, so everybody can freely access us. We may not always be the cheapest option, but we’re definitely trustworthy and reliable. You best bet is to stop by the USO and see Apple Tours, or call them at 02-793-3478. They have many package tours available for Asia destinations, or can simply make flight and hotel reservations for you. Whatever your needs, they can assist you with your inter-Asia and international travel.

  11. Krystal Says:

    I think Kwang at Zenith got my friend too. I am waiting to hear from her cause she is travelling in Thai now and had to get tickets two times. Why don’t the police or embassies stop Zenith Travel!

  12. Sandy Says:

    Let me know your email address if you would like to know my experience with this and group up. I saw a post for the Seocho District Office’s number. How do I file a complaint with that office? Just call (my Korean’s not that great) or is there an email? I have a copy of my very firm and aggressive letter regarding ZENITH and MR. KANG that I sent to Korea Travel Organization Tourist Complaint Center. I have not heard from them yet, but will let anyone know about the results if you contact me. There contact is tourcom@knto.or.kr. PLEASE send a letter to them. I don’t think that this is the last stop for action here…because as I saw above, the lady at the tourist center referred that person to the Seocho Office…and the Seocho Office referred to the Tourist Office and now it’s a circle. So, anyone with concrete, accurate, processes on how to accomplish getting our money back and shutting him down….let me know or reply to this comment. Thanks!

    Below is a copy of what I sent the Korea Travel Organization Tourist Complaint Center. I thought since this is a big deal now with many people regarding ZENITH TRAVEL and MR.

    =========================================================

    Hello Korea Travel Organization- Tourist Complaint Center (Ms. Kim Hyun Ju),

    I am sure that you have heard a lot lately about the travel booking company, Zenith Travel, and the associate, Mr. Wystan Kang. I have used him in the past with very little complications. However, I booked two tickets with him in March, for our honeymoon in October. The cost is total to 1,158,000 won. This was paid in full by me and I have monetary receipts to prove it, if need be.

    When I went to confirm my tickets, after no response from Mr. Kang, the airline said that the tickets were cancelled in March and that I had no booking. I was not told, no refund was made, and it seems that he has a habit of getting money after booking, then cancelling to spend the money and then booking again sometimes to make it work out. I found out that this is a similar problem for many, many, foreigners and I want to file a formal complaint for this business and to this man. I WANT MY FULL AMOUNT REFUNDED. I was told to send this to you first. Please let me know what the next step is and/or if I need to file with the police station or any other large monitoring organization.

    Attached is evidence of all my emails with him and below are my recorded logs of my contacting him.

    There are millions of won out there that have been stolen from customers and he should not be allowed to do business anymore and he and the company should be responsible for refunding our money back as this has made many of us suffer financially and mentally. Because of this, I was forced to purchase another two tickets directly with the airline that cost another over 1,000,000 won!

    All of the customers who have been taken advantage of by this company and this man, are ready to get together and form a group complaint to you, to a Labor Board, to any and all police agencies, to lawyers, international lawyers, and to any other higher power in Seoul and Korea. Alas, this is a responsible of Seoul and Korea as well. I am disappointed that this business was allowed to happen.

    We have faith that you can help bring proper action in this and that we can spread the word in the travel community that your organization has actively tried to be ethical, fair, and helpful.

    Called 9/14-1:26 pm (The man that answered the phone said to call in the morning again and that he was just a guy answering the phones. He said that none of the associates at Zenith Travel have been in the office for more than a month.

    9/5-5:10 pm (No Answer)

    9/5-2:58 pm (No Answer)

    9/2-3:00 pm (No Answer)

    9/1-12:53 pm (No Answer)

    8/30-10:50 am (Wystan not available)

    8/22-2:55 pm (Wystan not available)

    I’ve also called his cell phone number as well, three times. No answer.

    PLEASE FIND ATTACHED THE RECORD OF MY CONTACT WITH HIM.

    NOTIFY ME ASAP ABOUT THIS SITUATION.

    Hello Wystan,

    I have tried to contact you several times with no reply. I have also contacted Philippine Airlines to confirm my flights and they don’t have any itinerary for me or my husband. Please get back to me ASAP on this because we already paid for our flights in March and if you haven’t booked them properly, that is a huge problem.

    Thank you,

    Sandy Willett / Joseph Sabourin
    010-8701-****

    Hello Mr. Wystan Kang,

    I just recieved an itinerary with the name change. However, I have tried to reach you for several weeks with no contact. Also, when I called the airline to confirm my flight, they said that the flight you originally booked in March was cancelled in April. Furthermore, they said that I had absolutely no record of a ticket through you. So, I was forced to purchase another ticket since you had not gotten one for me even though I paid you a long time ago. The airline today said that you made a new reservation today but no booking.

    You need to cancel that and refund my money immediately. A lot of people have had similar experience with your company and are considering taking it to certain organizations that deal with complaints in business.

    I want you to cancel whatever reservations you have for me and return my money into my account today. Send me a reply when you have done this.

    Refund my money to KB bank account 172601-04-********

    Amount: Total price for two tickets is W1,158,000

    Zenith Travel, Wystan Kang, and all associates,

    I have sent you a final request, previously to refund my money that I paid to you in Feb/March. The ticket does not exist and I demanded my money be returned the day after I sent you that email.

    Because you have not done so, and because there has been no attempt to contact me further on this matter, I am forced to go to several organizations to file a complaint against you to get my money back as well as several other customers. These organizations include business monitors and police agents.

    If you want to prevent further action, you must get refer to my previous email and return my money into my account immediately.

    To 3WM:
    As an additional precaution, I closed my bank account that I had given the number to Kang. On a blog I read that he might have been selling our account numbers to the Nigerian scammers, ie. Dear Sir I am a government official who has access to a large sum of money that I need a trusted agent to send to………
    I feel a lot better after doing that. I believe this guy is capable of doing anything, after reading all the victims stories, he’s a freaking sociopath. It is absolutely mind boggling that he has gotten away with this for so long. There has to be some collusion or protection from the authorities somewhere in the chain. I hope that connection eventually gets uncovered. Also, the guy who answers the phone and says he is not working for Kang is full of it…he is an accomplice for every time he took info from new victims and passed it on to Kang without warning the new victims/customers. I am going to press that point with the authorities when I go in for my “questioning” session.

  16. fiz Says:

    I’m not advertisement for anyone, anytime. But I am wary of advertised ‘cheap flights’ when they seldom turn out to be that way.
    My travel guy used to be in Itaewon about 8yrs ago. He’s long since branched out but has a loyal foreign folk following. Sancho can be found at: 02-7596-5977 or on:
    010-9386-8654.

    I’ve been dealing with him for at least 7yrs and never had problems like I read above. What I do see is that in a society where regulations are a bit ‘flexible’, everyone in it does, and must and do take recommendations. Sancho is the ultimate professional, tried and tested – and not only for outbound travel reseverations.

    Let’s all move on from whatever the Korea Herald puts out! Tres boring.

  17. John Power Says:

    It’s worth pointing out the KTO has no legal authority to refund your money or even shut down Zenith. Seocho-gu office has apparently already suspended the business, though Kang was still willing to take people’s money as of this week.

    I would think the only way of getting your money back is through legal action.

  18. Ian Says:

    No, John, but what the KTO does have is influence and government backing and a large bank account which is essentially all you need to get someone to move here on the peninsula. Pass on the envelope to the proper authorities and that place will be shut faster than the kalbi restaurant down the road.

    And what the hell kind of name is Wystan Kang? Is he some Anglo-Saxon/Korean or is he related to W.H. Auden. What is his background? Sounds odd from the get-go. And sorry to all the people who got fleeced but schemes are schemes. Tread carefully and triple check.

  19. Legal Action Says:

    I’m pretty sure that if a cival (and maybe criminal) complaint gets filed, and you know Zenith’s Bank account numbers, you can legally apply to have his bank account frozen.

    Has anyone looked into this?

    It might be a way to stop him conducting business with other unsuspecting people.

    Kudos to everyone who worked to get this scoundrel shut down. Now they better empty his bank accounts and pay the people who got scammed.
    Sadly, it wouldn’t surprise me if the money has disappeared. It’s funny because Koreans I talk to about this are like, “yeah?” They say this sort of stuff goes on every day. Family members scam family members and then disappear never to be heard from again.

    Dear 3wm

    Yesterday the Seocho Police had me come in to make the official complaint, they had a translator, and basically went over all the details from my initial complaint that I filed at their office a couple of weeks ago. At the end I had to put the red ink on my thumb and stamp all the pages..so I guess its serious. I don’t know what is going to happen next, they said something about a Metropolitan police agency going forward with the case….I asked if that was the Namdaemun station but they indicated it wasnt….maybe Soedaemun. I will let you know what happens when I know it.
