SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Smart Holidays Rental Company represents itself as a professional and what seems to be a ligitament company including a full color webpage with personal testimonials and agents photo's and discriptions.

The properties are presented with full discriptions and color picture layouts. It includes property map location and addresses. (I believe that this information must be cut and pasted from a real agents page)

You are to email the owner/agent (very common with apartment rentals in Europe) You are then contact by email by the "so called" agent/property manager.  Some email corresponding is done. A price is quoted. Then you fill and return a rental agreement. Once received by the representative you are giving wire transfer information as where to wire the funds. (Also a very commom practice in Europe).

Once the wire transfer is complete you are notified that the funds have been received along with a confirmation number.

After this there was no more email contact. After two weeks of no response by either email or phone message.  I contacted my bank to have the wire transfer reversed only to find that the company had closed the account. Hence leaving me ripped off for $800.00.

So travelers beware of this, from what I am finding out, a very common scam !!
