"Damien Bancroft scams people online with dutyfreecubancigars.com He'll send you your first batch then the next order he will make up excuses as to why image cigars are late, they never arrive, he keeps your coin. I write this because he comments in this thread and scammers should be known to the cigar community. All the best" —September 1, 2014 15:17 PM
"Damian is correct, stay away from Canada and the Bahamas. Pre 9/11 there were no "red flags" for US citizens to depart from Canada. However, that's not the case anymore and your itinerary could be directly accessed at any time, even if you made the trip years ago." —March 3, 2012 17:43 PM
"I Agree with Mr. Henson !! " —March 1, 2012 21:59 PM
"I believe they are using a play on words. "Cuba Without A Passport" means by them being there they are taking you there as reader." —March 1, 2012 13:58 PM
"Americans can go to Cuba since 1997 with no stamp in passport. There are several direct flights with Continental and AA(unmarked plane) as well as private charters.Fly through a third country. Do not go through Bahamas or Canada as they have connections with US immigration." —February 29, 2012 14:42 PM
"@Bill Johnson -- My guess would be their press credentials allow them to travel to Cuba for jurnalistic reasons. Not sure on if they're allowed to bring anything back or not though." —February 28, 2012 18:14 PM
"Cuba w/o passport? How?" —February 28, 2012 16:17 PM
