eBay travel victims unite (AU)

Kylie Reghenzani

BRISBANE tourist Don Bailey has vowed to join other victims of a holiday rip-off and launch legal action against an online travel agent who ruined their dream holidays and left them thousands of dollars out of pocket.

Online auction site eBay has suspended Beach Australia's Robert Kobis, who also operates Cyber Blue Media, from trading on the site after it received hundreds of complaints from unhappy customers.

Mr Bailey and his wife Maxine arrived in Cairns on Tuesday only to find their five night booking at a Port Douglas hotel was part of the nationwide scam.

The couple have lost at least $1700
