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.
Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
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.
the exact same thing happened to us!! thank goodness my husband started digging before transferring money =-- it did seem too good to be true!! and the company website seems very legit! and now he wont get back to us since we have let him know we are having hard time verifying his legitamacy
