Scam Travel Agency

I bought a Jet2 ticket from Belmondo Travel for £133.93 on the 16th May to fly out of Antalya Airport only to discover upon returning to the UK they tried to deduct my account for £1249.27. When that amount was declined they managed to steal and deduct £830.34 from me.

I can't get hold of them for my bank to refund me. I'm elderly, live alone and I am looking for advice. It's all over the Internet and TripAdvisor that they have been doing this to travellers for years. I trusted Balmondo Travel.

I emailed Antalya Airport information asking them to get me an email address for them but no one has got back to me.

I can't even find Antalya Airport Police's email address. I'm stuck as my sim card won't give me access to international calls.
