Chris Maughan launched I‑PRAC in April 2015 after seeing first-hand the damage that can be inflicted by rental fraud. Earlier that year, he’d been contacted by a family who had lost £15,000 to online fraudsters and were left stranded without accommodation in Cannes. As well as giving them somewhere to stay – through his other company, AES Accommodation Ltd – Chris also vowed to put an end to rental fraud, a problem that is tarnishing the industry worldwide.
With the I‑PRAC logo becoming a recognised stamp of approval for legitimate rental agencies and property owners worldwide, Chris is keen to keep spreading the message about rental fraud.
