Default Florida/Web Cruise Agency "LSI" Folds

Folks, just wanted to pass along a warning which has deeply affected my wife and me for our two upcoming 2001 cruises. Below is the message I posted on the rec.travel.cruises web board this afternoon. I wanted to spread the news, hoping to alert others. Thanks.

Subject: WARNING! Leading Source (aka "LSI") Agency Folded
From: Karl)
Date: 11/17/2000 3:23 PM Eastern Standard Time

Unfortunately, it now appears that Florida cruise agency Leading Source, Inc., aka "LSI" aka "seamax.net" aka "seamax.com", (along with any of its other 150+ names) has folded, taking with it many of our deposits and final payments.

All employees have recently been terminated. Local (Fort Walton Beach) Florida law enforcement seized company documents this week at LSI's offices. Because of the magnitude of the number of persons affected, the documents have been forwarded to FL State Dept of Law Enforcement for investigation and possible prosecution. Since this is a case of 'Net fraud, people in many US states and Canada may be victims.

If you are directly affected by this news, as my wife and I are, and you want to participate in the gathering of documentation for any upcoming litigation, you may contact Capt. Bishop of the Fort Walton Beach, FL, Police Department Investigations Unit at 850-833-9536.
