Fraudulent Villa Owners on the Prowl Again!!…But Never on Our Watch!

Are you at risk of villa fraud when booking your family holiday… Not if you book with Panoramic Villas

This weekend yet another article appeared in the national press about a British family being scammed after booking their holiday home through property rental giant Owners Direct. Yet again this unsuspecting family found the villa of their dreams, contacted the ‘property owner’ and sent their hard earned cash by bank transfer only to discover the villa doesn’t exist and their money is long gone.

This family are not alone, it has been reported that fraudulent owners have stolen more than £25 million off holidaymakers in the last five years. Is this making you nervous?? Well, it shouldn’t because this will not happen if you book through Panoramic Villas!
