A growing problem worldwide
You have found the perfect property – the photos look amazing and it has multiple five-star reviews. However, when arriving at your destination, you realise your dream property does not even exist. Suddenly you find yourself stranded in a foreign country with nowhere to stay, no money for alternative accommodation and no way of reclaiming the money.
Unfortunately this is happening more often worldwide, with travellers putting their trust in property owners and rental agents they don’t know. With fraudsters becoming more technical and investing time and money to create the perfect fake listing or the perfect fake agency website, more and more travellers are falling victim to this devastating type of fraud.
With popular booking platforms allowing fraudsters to list fake properties alongside legitimate property owners and rental agents, it is impossible to know who is legitimate and who is not. But now it is possible, thanks to I-PRAC.
