Initially he said it was available for the time we needed but later said the the resort is all booked and that he can get us in at the Westin Kaanapali in Maui. He found the unit and we agreed, signed the contract. He provided me the confirmation number with our names and I called the the resort to verify, everything checked out so I sent the $2000.00 cashier’s check to Debra J. Tise per his request because her name was also on the contract. One day before we arrived in Maui, I called the resort and was told that the confirmation number exist but it’s under the owner’s name and there is nothing they can do to help me. We were very upset and I try to contact this Michael Ampe person by phone (717) 204-7793 and emailed ([email protected]) but he would not respond. Unfortunately I got SCAMMED. He has an accomplice by the name of Debra J. Tise who’s name and address was used on the contract and money to be sent to. He’s still out there committing fraud and we are filing a police report with the hope to stop them. Please be on the look out for these people, we were careful but still became their victims.
