A travel business based in Honolulu, Hawaii, is being investigated after a Milpitas resident reported paying for services but never receiving them.
Investigation of the initial report made by the resident on Aug. 8 turned up 12 more potential victims of the House of Aloha Hawaii, Milpitas police said Wednesday.
Milpitas police contacted the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, the California Department of Justice Seller of Travel Program, and the Honolulu Police Department in its investigation.
The case was referred to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office for a criminal complaint against House of Aloha Hawaii for theft by false pretenses and failure to provide travel services as promised.
Police believe there may be other Milpitas residents who paid for travel services they never received or only partially received and encourage residents who may have a complaint to call the department at (408) 586-2400.
Residents outside Milpitas who did business with House of Aloha Hawaii should contact their local police department.
