Dear forum visitors,
Since the last 3 years has the Motorhomereservation.com website created numerous victims, but no-one has mentioned it on this board, I'd like to post this warning. Don't fall for this scam!
The website operates as follows: you make a reservation, the give two dates to make the deposit. Once this total amount is paid, they'll stop responding to emails. That leaves the client with a big loss of money, no pick-up address and their vacation practically ruined before it even started.
Motorhomereservation does not have a telephone number, so that should already ring a bell. The address on their invoice that claims that they reside in Vancouver, is false.
The Canadian Bureau of Better Business and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirm that this site is fraudulant, but they don't know what to do.
The website is hosted by a company in Houston. If you call them, they give you an email address to write to, but afterwards: no reply.
The emails sent by these criminals are not coming from North America, but from the Spanish island of Mallorca.
Some other travel agents have done their own research and came up with 2 German names for the people doing this. (I have the names, but will not post them publicly since I can't confirm the credibility. Registered users who are victims can contact me for more details.)
Who am I? I'm a forum manager for the Canada forum on the Dutch vacation board of WereldWeb. By now I have 5 victims from The Netherlands keeping each other posted on this website. There are several other websites from all over the world where users report the same complaints.
Although motorhomereservation.com is their main website, they also operate with a list of other site.
