I booked a room via this website last night availablehotelsbook.com. The contact number didn't work so I rang the hotel direct as I had a question about parking. They didn't have a reservation for me but it was too early to say if there was a problem and to ring back.
I became suspicious and after finding these warning postings I cancelled my credit card, although the payment for this room was already "flagged" to be paid to "roomsrecord.com" so couldn't be stopped. I would have to dispute the payment when the money was taken and goods not received.
Later this morning I again rang the hotel who confirmed that they had my booking, it had just been received by fax. I have also had a reply to an email I sent to availablehotelsbook.com to confirm this and for me to contact Hotelbeds UK Ltd with my reservation number if I am concerned. The hotel has directly confirmed my reservation so all is ok.
Should I still be worried, whats the scam?
