On 9.9.13 The property manager, Clemenz Stoger, contacted me to let me know that the rental was available through e-mail. He then sent me a rental contract and told me that I needed to do a wire transfer.
At the time, the eliterentalsinc.com website was up and running and appeared totally legitimate.
On 9.14: I wired 1920.00 for the rental in NY (wire transfer from my bank, Bank of America)and let Mr. Stoger know through e-mail that the transfer would take place on 9.16 to his bank, Barclays, in London.
On 9.15: He promptly responded on 9.15 to let me know he would follow up when the transfer went through.
On 9.19, I sent an email enquiring as to next steps, no response, I went to the website, eliterentalsinc.com and it had been taken down.
On 9.20.13, I called the number I had been given by Mr. Stoger on the contract and was informed it had been disconnected. I then checked vrbo.com to look at the vacation rental again and it has been removed. I have tried to get to the site and find anything on it through google or the internet since and have been able to find nothing.
