wholesale business-class ticket scam?

i've come across two agents selling too-good-to-be-true "wholesale" tickets. one is called wholesale-flights.com and the other is a fellow who advertises every week in the los angeles times, named scott landers.

has anyone here had business dealings with either? or, bought tickets from them? please share your experience.

i believe wholesale-flights is a scam, but scott landers sounds legit. he's offering me biz class on japan airlines from los angeles to taipei, then 1st. class (!) from hong kong to l.a. for $4,000 including a flight from phomn pen to hong kong on dragon air. please tell me what you think.

thank you!

These threads should get you started with mileage broker discussion:

Risks of mileage broker tickets?

wholesaleflights.com?

does anyone know if these websites are legit?

www.wholesale-flights.com, any experience?

Anyone ever booked with "Luxury for Less" (FLYL4L.COM) before?
