Scam Warning

Over Pay Bill and Ask for Refund or Balance Sent to Third Party.
Or Identity Theft

Summary

The end goal is to get the B&B owner to send money to the scammer. Typically, the scammer will make a booking and overpay for it with either a credit card or forged check. The scammer will request the balance sent somewhere, usually by Western Union. Remember, these scammers are creative and there are many variations on the scam.

The scam works like this:

The scammer will book a room(s) and claim to have no credit card to hold the room or will have a credit card. They will ask to send a bank draft/certified check/money order to pay for the room in advance or pay for it with a credit card. When the check arrives it will be for an amount greater than the value of the stay or they will ask you to charge the credit card for an amount greater than the value of the stay. The scammer will then request the balance sent to a third party (i.e. a car rental agency) or returned to the scammer.

Since the bank draft/certified check/money order is drawn on a foreign bank it may take up to 3 months to learn it is fraudulent. The B&B owner is now short the amount of the check/wire they sent the scammer and probably lost bookings since they held a room for the scammer. If the scammer paid by a credit card it is surely to be disputed by the actual card owner.

Some of the Tells:

  • Overseas/International: Typically the guest/agent/scammer will be overseas or out of country (UK, France...). The reason is authorities rarely pursue this kind of international crime.

  • Urgent: Often the scammer will be acting in an urgent manner and making bookings with short notice.

  • Long stays or lots of rooms:   They will also want long stays and a lot of rooms. The scammer will also be very vague about the actual number of guest. The reason is they want to get the booking charge high.

  • No rate resistance: They will show little or no rate resistance.

  • Flexible on dates: They will be flexible on dates of arrival/ departure and the number of nights booked.

  • No interest in location: They don’t care about your location, they will express little or no interest in area attractions, nearby airports or other facilities.

  • Will not address your B&B by name in the first e-mail: The first e-mail you receive will likely not address your B&B specifically. It will be a general e-mail and may not even mention your town or state.

  • Grammar, Spelling, and choice of words: The scammer's grammar, spelling and use of punctuation will be off. When you see the sample e-mails below you'll notice the spacing is off.
    "Agency,London"
    instead of
    "Agency, London"
  • Doctor's acting as travel agents: Often the scammer making the booking will present themselves as a doctor. There are two red flags associated with this. 1) Doctor's generally don't act as travel agents. 2) Doctor's, especially from England, should have a better command of the English language.

  • Free e-mail account: Often the e-mail will come from a free e-mail service like Yahoo! or Hotmail. Legitimate travel agents rarely use free e-mail accounts. Note: One scammer has created a front called Varsatile Vincent Travel Agency and sends e-mails from hotel@varsatilevincent.info or reservations@varsatilevincent.info see Elvis Borrow.

  • Send money: They want you to send them cash, usually by wire. Ultimate tip off!

top

Suggestion:
If you get one of these remember if it is too good to be true, it probably is.  If you feel it is a legit booking request a deposit by bank transfer or credit card and insist on the balance being paid in person.  Whatever happens, do not send them a check, a money gram, a wire, or bank transfer!!!

If you feel it could be legit it is rely on your instinct. Make sure you chat them up. Ask them about the attractions they plan to see or are interested in. What airport they are flying to. Who are they flying with. Will they be renting a car. But it is probably best to just ignore them.

Here is a list of known scammers. If you have any to add (scams or aliases) read the Actions you can take first.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
The scammers do not use their own real name. For the most part they use made up names and made up or wrong addresses. In some cases they may assume the identity of another real legitimate person. They may also claim associations with well know organizations. It is has been brought to our attention that we could be defaming a legitimate person or business and suggested we give out general non-specific information. We have decided to continue supplying details v. general information. If a legitimate person or business is found listed on this page then please read that as notification of identity theft. If you are that person/business please contact us to discuss how we should proceed. If you believe we have listed someone incorrectly please take the time to notify us.

This is an scary one. The scammer has assumed the identity of a legit surveying firm in the UK. I've not put the name of the firm up since I don't want to get them associated with any wrong doings. I've sent them an e-mail asking for their feedback.

New Names/Aliases are being added to the forum from now on.

 

NEW: We are now tracking IP addresses. When ever we find a scammer using our site, we are going to block them.

top

 

NOTE: These scammers assume a new name with just a few key strokes. If a name is not listed here, and that name is acting in a suspicious manner, please proceed with extreme caution. And remember, under no circumstances ever send money anywhere at their request.

Remember, cashier checks/bank drafts/certified checks can be forged. And if drawn on a foreign bank it can take up to THREE MONTHS to learn this. Credit card numbers are obviously stolen.

 
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
The scammers do not use their own real name. For the most part they use made up names and made up or wrong addresses. In some cases they may assume the identity of another real legitimate person. They may also claim associations with well know organizations. It is has been brought to our attention that we could be defaming a legitimate person or business and suggested we give out general non-specific information. We have decided to continue supplying details v. general information. If a legitimate person or business is found listed on this page then please read that as notification of identity theft. If you are that person/business please contact us to discuss how we should proceed. If you believe we have listed someone incorrectly please take the time to notify us.
 

If your information has been added here and you are not a scammer please contact us directly at

http://www.pillowsandpancakes.com/contact.htm

The reason we keep this list is the scammer cannot reasonably change their name after they have initiated a scam with their target. So hopefully if we prevent one person from falling victim to this sensational scam that will make it worth it for us.

When the scammers start a new fishing trip we are fully aware that these scammers can assume a new identity at the flick of a switch. But the one thing they cannot seem to change is the trends in their e-mails and the type of names they choose for themselves. If you read through them you should be able to spot the trends. They pick throw away e-mails (yahoo.com, hotmail.com) and they pick very white caucasian sounding names which does not jive with their writing skills.

top


Actions you can take

  1. Report the e-mail to the e-mail provider: You will likely receive the e-mail via a free e-mail service like Yahoo! or Hotmail. Forward the e-mail to abuse@xxxx.xxx i.e. abuse@yahoo.com, abuse@yahoo.co.uk, or abuse@hotmail.com. e.g. If the scammer sent the e-mail from scammer@yahoo.com you would forward the entire e-mail to abuse@yahoo.com. Yahoo!, Hotmail,... may shut their e-mail account down.

  2. Post your scammer in the forum

  3. Link to this page on your site: Help others find this page by plugging it on your site. If you need code contact us.

  4. Share this page with your association: Share this page/site with your B&B association to help get the warning out.

  5. Report to Authorities:
    In Canada call Phone Bustuers at 1-888-495-8501.
    In the USA contact Looks to Good to Be True or to file a complaint contact Internet Crime Complaint Center

    We tried Interpol. They basically told us to ignore it. You can see their e-mail in the blog. What bugs us about this response is ignoring these allows them to go on un-noticed. It is the sharing of knowledge that is going to erode away at their scam. I don’t think the B&B owner ignoring is the right action. However, I certainly don't think the B&B owner should reply to them either. I still think these should be reported to authorities. We would like other new suggestions on how to go about reporting to authorities.

  6. Alert credit card company: If you get a credit card number, the number is most likely stolen. Report that card number to the credit card company.

    Hi - Had Mr Elvis requesting rooms for 4 delegates. Dont know why I decided to check out the web page and in the search answers was this one regarding the scams. I thank you for the information and just to let you know Im from Estonia. So he has reached here. And like some others I do not take credit card. Cash only all the way.

    Believe it or not he is now using the name of Gordon Brown ….and trying to scam in Finnish Lapland…..

    Still using Brighthall Agency and booking Christian Fellowship group bookings. Reserved 14 rooms out of 17 at our Arctic Circle Hotel a few days ago. However the request was simply too suspicious with prepayment by credit card a 14 night stay and a need for US to pay a car hire company…

    Looked up the company name and came immediately to your site… We would not have gone along with this anyway but glad to see you are warning persons of their activities….

    Many thanks and keep up the good work

    Thank you for your website citing B&B reservation scams. I found you by doing a Google search for Mr. Borrow just out of curiosity since he referred to himself as being with the ELB Agency (Education and Library Board) in Scotland. I feel stupid for believing such a request and appreciate your site.

    Hi,
    I am a B&B manager in Australia and received a booking request from an Elvis Borrow. Suspecting it was a scam I did a google search and found your web site warning of known scammers, including this guy.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide warnings.

    Kind regards,

    Hello,
     
    This one jumped right out at me as looking suspicious, but I googled them anyway and came up with your website.  It's not the first time someone has tried this.  I thought I would forward this to you to add to your museum of spammers.  They were trying to book space in our small hotel in Baja, Mexico.  Now it appears they are even including a "photo" of themselves for credibility. 
     
    Thanks for your service!

    Dear Sirs/Madams,

    I´m sending you the e-mail I´m suspecting to be a scam. I took it seriously. Today a fourth case of the scam came, from ELVIS BORROW

    The air of the mail reminded me three different reservations we did in January. I checked name of Elvis Borrow via Google and luckily found your list of scammers. Thank you very much for clearing the thing. Recently there was a guy pretending to be American and working for a UNESCO. He send us a check for 5000 US dollars and asked us to send the money back after withdrawing a sum needed for his stay in our boarding house in Levoca, Slovakia (930 $). I´ve found it would take at least 6 weeks to get the money and his arrival was planned in one week. He explained he needs the rest of money for the airplaine ticket and his boss by mistake sent us money for his whole stay in Slovakia. If you´re interested I´ll send you those -e-mails.

    Thanks for your scam alert, I got an email from Elvis Borrow for Mar 1-10 just this morning! He wanted to pay on credit card. I was suspicious & your warning popped up...good job. That would have hurt us, if we'd not found your scam warning.

    Being it was a travel agent, thought I'd just check as there was no website & typed in the agents name & warning come up, so its working...

    Thanks from

    Thanks for your great page on scammers ... the Elvis Borrow from Varsatile Vincent etc nearly got me in ... I got suspicious when I rolled over the menu on his web site and it came up with things like "my girl" "my hobby" and checked the source to find it had no meta tags ... did the google search and came up with your web site ... good work!  I have since warned all our state B&B assoc and directed them to your page.

    Cheers
