A word from our founder:

“It is important to note that there is a distinct lack of data available about holiday rental fraud, because cases often go unreported. The details and numbers are only of those that are reported – many of those who haven’t reported, or say that they wouldn’t, said that they’d be embarrassed, ashamed, uncomfortable or concerned about reporting the case, due to the unlikelihood of resolution, plus the embarrassment that they’d been caught by a fraudster and lost thousands. 

Similarly, many of those don’t know who to speak to, so they end up doing nothing as a result. The real number and cost of cases of holiday-related fraud are certainly much, much higher.”
