Rentals fraud is
just one of hundreds of Russian/Ukrainian scams from the same huge
criminal operation. It is simply the Better Rentals and Fine Rentals frauds re-hashed under a new name. They also have
identical aliases of Premium Rentals and Ace
Rentals. The bottom line is the usual ILLEGAL spamvertised money
mule job under the 'Vacancies' tab which will get your bank account and
assets frozen, lose you a lot of money and get you a visit from the
police. Don't fall for it!
fraudster should not be confused with any legitimate company of the
or similar name - the
above website graphics and the included money
laundering job clearly identify the fake website and these fraudsters.
World Rentals :
of Criminal Fraud
i) World Rentals claim on
their website 'About Us' page: "Based in
Germany and founded in January 2005", but the
criminal's domain world-rentals.org
with Enom.com on 22-Sep-2008. Clear evidence of
misrepresentation and fraud.
ii) On their 'About
Us' page, World Rentals claim: "Based
in Germany and founded in January 2005, World Rentals is a global
catalogue of rentals and one of the best marketplaces for accomodation
abroad. With first hand knowledge of the foreign property market and
coupled with many years of internet marketing, we offer you an
unrivalled and powerful rental opportunity. With accomodation
objects in France, Spain, UK, Australia, USA, Russia & many more
destinations worldwide , we are sure you will find your ideal home
abroad with Premium-Rentals.com. The site has user-friendly format and quick and efficient search tools have made it a favourite with renters". Ignoring the mis-spelling of accommodation, and
the fact that they have used a previous alias (Premium-Rentals.com), a Google search
for "World Rentals" shows lots of other companies with those words in their name, but
nothing for these crooks - they have no web presence whatsoever, (apart
from fraud website listings).
