I will write this in English so everyone could understand what I’m talking about.
This summer I had an awful experience with bookinhotels.com. We went in vacation in Croatia, so we needed to book some rooms in Zagreb for one night. From the offers available on the Internet, we chose bookinhotels.com. They had the best price, the site looked good and we didn’t find bad reviews at that time. It looks like a trusted site with Visa and Mastercard credentials and it has huge traffic accordingly to Alexa. We checked with the Zagreb hotel which said the site is trusted and they had worked before with bookinhotels. Thus, we had no doubt regarding the scam.
The scam bookinhotels.com
We paid with Visa. They took the money immediately from our account and they sent us a voucher through email. All seemed perfect. A few days before reaching our destination a friend had received an email from bookinhotels.com that announced us that we had no reservations, as they were canceled due to some financial issues. We called the hotel and they confirmed that we had no reservation because a travel agency that worked with bookinhotels.com canceled it. They said the travel agency didn’t receive the money from bookinhotels.com.
Bookinhotels.com announced us that we will receive our money, but that didn’t happened. Check the mail discussions at this link: http://docs.google.com/View?id=dg77r8c3_2588xd98fb
