In August 2013: A group of us was looking for a vacation rental in Key West for October and I found the rental listing on www.eliterentalsinc.com. I verified the vacation rental on different sites including verifying the Elite Rentals Inc. as "In Good Standing" company from the UK. Everything looked very legit including the website. On 8.30.13 I had completed and signed a contract between Aleksander Janowski the owner (so called owner) and wired the money to him as instructed on the contract. After a few days of following up with Aleksander, I get an email from a Clemenz Stoger saying that the wire instructions were wrong and that they were sending the money back to us so we can resend the money to the correct account. We received the money back to our account, so at this point all of the thoughts of this being a scam was removed since they actually sent the money back. I then wired the money again to the other account as stated in the wire instructions on 9.16.13. I have been following up with Clemenz through email back and forth now for 2 weeks. It is every apparent now that this is a scam that has taken a few people by surprise. The property that we were looking at had a description of Property H71117 in Key West. I did a search on that property on Google and found that there is another website with the same description called smartrentalsinc.com. That site is also not available. When I called their phone number (+44-843-289-2307) the service answers saying please hold for the next available support agent. Well after holding for over an hour, that agent never answers the phone.
Since then I have come aware that there are other websites that promote properties in the Key West, Florida area under www.eliterentalsinc.com and www.smartrentalsinc.com.
