Hi Guys...........am a regular to Bali and I always try new places to stay at as you know they pop up like mushrooms.
Anyways noticed this new one...'Villa K - 2 bedrooms Oberoi' on Trip Advisor and sent off the inquiry email for availability and rates as there was not the usual booking agencies like Wotif,etc,etc and got a very quick reply with a UK email address telling me they have a vacancy and the costing for that period from 5.9.13.
Accordingly I emailed back telling them I was happy with the costing and wanted to know what booking agency to use...............so far no response.
Meantime I checked the site via Trip Advisor and noted only a mobile contact number and the 2 reviews that did not state from who and where.
Noticed there was a payment procedure to follow which on the A$1800 (the full cost of the stay), required a booking deposit of $900 and the remainder $900 on 6/8/13 which is not the procedure for the normal booking agencies.
The period of the booking was from 5.9.13 to 14.9.13
IS THIS A SCAM PERCHANCE.
Does anybody know anything about the property or has stayed there?
Thanks Guys for any feedback.
