Ibiza Scammer Alert!

Ok listen up.

It has come to our attention that scammers are using the ol' Western Union / DHL deposit scam by advertising apartments that seem too good to be true on local property lettings sites and trying to get the potential tenants to send money in exchange for the keys to even see the apartment.

This is a well known Western Union scam

WARNING: Never send payment by WESTERN UNION or MONEYGRAM for any reason!

This includes:

  • Rental deposits
  • Loan fees
  • Job application or visa fees (No legitimate employer requires payment of any kind from a prospective employee)
  • Making a purchase
  • Or any other reason!

Sending or receiving payment by Western Union or MoneyGram is against our terms of use.

Anyone who asks for payment by Western Union or MoneyGram is a scammer.

Be wary of deals that are "too good to be true".

Watch for landlords/owners who are out of the country, travelling or cannot meet you personally.

We've seen these adverts on and so far but they're likely to be on others too, so beware.

And really, how unlucky for them, trying to scam friends of the world renowned SEO Spec Ops group, on the internet, was a bit daft, so we now have a new Google-trolling for amusement project to get stuck right into for 2009, in our very own Ibiza 419 baiters style.


Edit.. as Billy the Kid allegedly used to say... "I'll make you famous"
