! ALERT: Vacation Rental Scams / Fraud !

February 27th, 2019 | by seabim |

(Achtung: Buchungs-Betrüger geben sich für Mitarbeiter unserer Firma (und anderer Firmen) aus! Dafür werden Platformen wie VRBO, HomeAway / Fewo-Direkt genutzt. Wenn Sie ganz sicher sein wollen, schreiben Sie nur unsere persönlichen  Email-Adressen an, die Ihnen bekannt sind oder verwenden Sie das Kontakt-Formular auf unserer seabim.com Website!)

About 70% of all of our vacation rental guests are returning seabim-customers, who can contact us directly. However, new customers sometimes find us on other websites. Please make SURE that you really communicate with our company!

Currently, there are different SCAMS. Today I got a call from a Michigan renter. She THOUGHT that she was booking one of our seabim-vacation-homes on VRBO. The booking papers looked legit to her. A person, who impersonated Lars asked her to wire the full rental amount right away, although it was for a 2020-booking. Fortunately, she got skeptical, did some research and called us. Otherwise, she would have lost her money AND she would have found out next year, arriving at the house that nobody knows anything about her or her booking.

Scam artists copy property photos and website information to advertise on different platforms like VRBO / HOMEAWAY and others. Mostly, these ads cannot be distinguished from legitimate ads. Therefore, be very careful.

If you want to make SURE that you are not dealing with criminal scam artists, always contact us DIRECTLY, for example using the contact form on seabim.com or our personal email addresses.
