A person known as Moh. Amour Mghair (Bank of America - Florida) scammed us out of thousands of dollars for a vacation rental for a 2 bed Apartment holiday rental for "Kim Apartments" 212 East 57th Street, New York, NY, 10022 in 2018. The owner "Kimberley George" said it was their own apartment on Level 9 as a holiday rental. The Kim Apartments Website, emails, documents (15) all seem legit and professional in English. Said they would not accept Credit Card or Paypal due to fraud and direct bank transfer with the Policy emailed to us. Stupidly we completed all their Rental Agreement Forms and paid 100% via direct transfer to Moh. Amour Mghair. Prior to our arrival the website was shut down and phone disconnected. Sent emails no reply - no refund, no contact. Reported this in US. Have since conducted many google searches and not seen anyone else who was scammed by Moh. Amour Mghair. Never will we ever pay via direct transfer - learn't expensive lesson the hard way.
