Fake agency of the day

Fake agencies seem to be popping up all over Craigslist these days.

Here’s the latest one, apparently an offshoot of the holidayhomecitys.com scam featured in an earlier warning:

http://www.thepalacereservation.com
book@thepalacereservation.com

The website not only looks hastily put together, a quick Whois check shows this website’s domain name was created just days ago, and only for one year, the shortest term possible.

The fake ad on Craigslist, offering luxury accommodations for the ridiculously low price of 55 euros a night:

EUR55 / 1br – MAKE YOUR RESERVATION AT (FRANCE/PARIS)
