Fake banks, couriers, law firms, escrow and other fake sites used in scams.

I know these sites are fake, I just need a bit of a hand in getting them taken down:

Yourhotelsbook.com

Bookmeanhotels.com

Roomsrecord.com

Expertrooms.com

Thanks a lot.

Registration for one year only and only recently despite what the website says sure is fishy. The contact "Administrative Contact, Technical Contact: Onder Turizm [email protected]" is a private free email, despite it is supposed to belong to a travel agency. Do you have any more information?

#60710 by Katharina Tue Aug 02, 2011 1:07 pm
So, to make a long story short, you are right, the websites are extremely fishy. If you want help to investigate and get the sites closed, please contact our moderator Michael via PM. Our moderators' names are green.
#60729 by Michael Tue Aug 02, 2011 5:08 pm
These websites are most definately fake and only exist with one purpose - credit card phishing. Stay far away.

This looks like it's going to be a can of worms and we'll definately look into it.

Welcome Tarien,
I'm so sorry you've lost money!
There is a - very slight :( - chance you might get your money back if you have paid by credit card or bank transfer.
In this case, your need to contact your bank or credit card company and ask them to recall your transfer. But you need proof, so don't delete your email correspondence with the scammer.
#63622 by Etranger Wed Aug 24, 2011 9:50 am
Another website they have used recently is mybookingcentrals.com

Creditcard payments are conversed in Turkish liras under the name Onder Turizm Otel Reze or Ufuk Turkey, Istanbul. They will try to use your credit card details for buying things in Tukey. First they try to find oud if your credit card is still working by making a booking of 1 eurocent and immediately after that they try to buy someting big, in my case at a Turkish garage.
#64047 by pbn123 Sat Aug 27, 2011 3:23 pm
Katharina, they don't get their victims from emails, but by placing ads on travel-related websites.
