My sister sent me this website address for Pro Best Holidays, as we were looking at Apartments in NY. Yes the photos looked beautiful, but some descriptions did not match when I google searched the actual address of the properties, some of the grammar in the descriptions was very poor and it mixed up the gender of two of their employees and their photos look like a bunch of real estate agents. Smell a rat now? They have obviously put in a fake link to Companies House UK so that their company appears legitimate. However, I did a further search before we parted with $6000 on some of their employees and found that Gim Velcu has done this all many times before. Thanks heaps!

I have been searching for holiday appartments in Las Vegas when I received a reply to an enquiry but from a company I did not recall approaching.
there was a link to what looks like a proper website and to property details like others I had searched.
The only thing that that alerted me was that the price was simply too good. On looking into the site the address Flat 3 Midwintr Court 78 City: Harrow State: London Country: United Kingdom is the same as other previously reported holiday scam companies. The site is also only 40 odd days old.
