Villa La Flamenca / fake hotel - fake rentals
Fake hotel and vacation rental alert
Villa la flamenca located in tenerife (spain) is a scam. It's not a hotel and it's not a vacation rental. The person posting fake pictures of this place online to lure victims is a belgian who resides in the canary islands. Her name is mariana rodriguez vandeputte.
Ms. Mariana posts fake pictures on multiple sites online that belong to other real hotel businesses in the area. This is easily identifiable by using google's reverse picture search.
Once you contact her online she gives you fake customer references. She then takes your deposit and a week or two before your rental is supposed to start she comes out with an excuse to keep your money.
She also claims that her"hotel" is for sale.
I lost €300 with this scam. If you are a victim you can file a report with spain's national police at +[protected].
