Other Scams, Hoaxes and Frauds

Is wettamax.com a scam?

With a big thank you to Artists Against 419 for reporting this scam.

Scamadviser is getting popular among scammers. For the 4th time in one month, we have been confronted by an illegal copy of Scamadviser.com. In this case scamschecks.com. Each time the illegal copy referred to a website as 100% safe, in this instance wettamax.com.

WettaMax Rentals however has all the characteristics of being a scam:

  • The addresses mentioned cannot be found on Google Maps
  • Its apartments cannot be found anywhere else.
  • They claim to be rated Excellent on Tripadvisor but there is no link.
  • They state to be registered in the United Kingdom but the link takes you to a fake version of the Company House website!

We found several sites online which used the same source code in the past such as webbarettz.com, mebbarettz.com, rettamax.com, mwordeaguardian.com, mdommeguardianrentalsapartments.com.

The way the company seems to make money is by convincing people to transfer money before seeing the apartment. The scam is quite advanced as they create copies of authority sites to give an impression of legitimacy.
