Vacantion Rental Scam

Last summer (2019) I was looking for a villa in Ibiza to stay for 1 week with my family. I found this nice looking website on google with good prices and availability. I contacted them right away and after a few days of being in contact with them I decided to pay £ 2,500 by bank transfer. After two weeks, I tried to contact them again but the website was offline and their phone number was disconnected. A simple google search revealed the villa I booked had a different owner and the price was 2 x higher. The company I rented from was gone! A few weeks back I was looking for another vacation and noticed so many scam websites online and I decided to create this blog and post them here and hopefully other people don’t lose their money like I did.
