I was searching homeaway website for vacaiton rental in NYC. I contacted many property managers through that. This email came as a response but I could not track down for which property. But the apartment he sent pictures for was good and the price was around the same ballpark with 20% discount. I did the money transfer and no reply from their side.

Tried to book a week at a Key West property through HOMEAWAY. When I clicked on "contact owner" I received an email back from Elite Rentals. After a series of back and forth communications, filling out a very legit looking application, I was instructed to wire funds to a Barclay's Bank acct in London (acct info the SAME as in earlier complaints described on this site). Eventually I contacted Barclay's and they "investigated." Today I received conformation that the acct was closed and no funds remained. Homeaway seemed aware that this stuff is going on but wanted to blame it on hackers getting into their clients email. I think it is their email that has been compromised. $3543 into the black scam hole in London, with the help of Barclay's who apparently is preferred by scammers since they do no investigation of accounts established.

We found a flat in Paris listed on VRBO.com. Clemenz responded to our inquiry, though we don't know which it was. They responded with a contract and a request for the wire. We signed the contract and wired the money $1960.00 USD. The scammer traded emails with us until I sent him the receipt from the bank transfer, then they went silent.
