Help me info about website "shortlet-london.com"

Hi, has anyone used shortlet-london.com to book into the studio in South Hampstead area?

I've booked a large double studio flat 945£ for 21 days, it's 2-3 min wolking Swiss Cottage tube station

Could you please briefly say what was the experience like? Is it worth the stay and is the surrounding good.

I'd like to have any info about reliability of web-site....

Thank you

The domain is only registered for 1 year and the sole contact number is a mobile phone, no office address, no landline, also advertises on Gumtree and Craigslist, the scammers favourite haunts, only accepts payment through Paypal....

The site claims to be affiliated to a Russian run company called Luckoni Ltd, who ARE registered at companies house, but who are very vague about what exactly they deal with, only saying that they are currently moving offices and regret that they cannot meet clients in person. Which is odd to say the least.

I'm not saying it's fraudulent, but what I will say is that many of the same warning flags are present that I have seen on confirmed fraud sites in the past, and personally speaking, I would not deal with this company.

Hi, Thanks at all for answers....at the end, i used web site "shortlet-london.com" and i've had no problem with it. I've got all that i wanted: a studio-flat, near tube station as i've booked (South Hampstead property), so it isn't a five stars but quite worth, the day before last one i phoned the manager Mr. Sergio, who said to me to leave the keys inside the flat and i did it; i payed deposit by my "Paypal" account and the day after i came back...i got my money back on it.
