Another Family Ripped Off In Lanzarote Villa Scam

I was distraught yesterday to learn another family has been ripped off with the holiday villa scam.

Screen Shot 2016 12 18 at 12 59 31

They had booked from the UK to arrive tomorrow morning for a ten day stay in a villa in Puerto Calero. They had booked a hire car through us, and contacted me yesterday because they were having trouble getting a response from the villa company they had booked with to confirm arrangements to meet at Lanzarote Airport. 

As soon as I saw the website they had used - luxurycanarianrentalsdotcom - I knew they had been scammed.

These websites pop up very quickly, are often based in Eastern Europe, although they purport to be based here in Spain, and appear in many different guises. As fast as one is shut down, another can pop up with a different domain name.   read more »
