I was scammed online by a woman claiming to be a condo owner going by the name of Kristina Hitchingham. On Tuesday 7/12/22 I was taken to a website Floridarentals.com and was looking at condos for rent for the week of 7/24/22 - 7/29/22 and reached out to a few properties listed. I was contacted by email and text message around 10:30 pm by someone named Kristina Hitchingham about her property being available and she sent me an email with the details and photos of her property. Kristina stated if I was interested to let her know and she would forward me an invoice with all the details and full amount of payment. I received the invoice via email on 7/13/22. The invoice stated I was to complete a bank transfer to all her information listed:
Routing Number: 084106768
Account Number: 9801985128
Bank Name: Evolve Bank & Trust
Account Name: Kristina Hitchingham
Bank Address: 6070 Poplar Avenue, Suite 200 Memphis, Tennessee 38119
My Address: 17739 Front Beach Rd, Panama City Beach, Florida 32413
My Phone: (850) 347-8166 https://vacationhomeowners.com/homes/8554317
Several different websites have Kristina Hitchingham listed at the verified owner of this condo Floridarentals.com, vacasa.com, and vacationhomeowners.com. I was a bit leery, but without finding anything scam related when I searched so I went on and sent a bank wire transfer in the amount if $1800.00 to this account on 7/14/23 from what I was told by my bank the money was instantly placed into her account. I then emailed her a copy of the receipt and asked her to send me the receipt she stated she would send. Kristina stated she would have to wait until the money was received and she would notify me once that happened. By last night I still had not heard from her so I emailed asking if she had received the money because the bank stated she had it, she finally emailed me that she would give me a receipt with all the details in the morning. This morning I received another email that she needed $600 more for a security deposit which would be refunded to me. she stated her husband would not let her send the details or the receipt of payment because it was missing the security deposit. She stated she would send all the info once I sent the $600, she also said sorry she forgot to add the security deposit and she wanted me to wire transfer her that. Now I was a bit skeptical because wire transfers cost money and how is she going to refund me $600 for a security deposit, after we checked out? Plus this was never included in the original invoice. I sent her an email asking her how I would be refunded the security deposit and she stated she would except a cash app of $600 from me and she again apologize for the inconvenience. At that point I asked her to call me several times, I even tried calling her which rolled to a answering service . At that point I emailed her and stated I would prefer she just cash app me back my refund and I no longer wanted to rent her condo. After multiple emails she no longer responded and I knew it was a scam, I called my bank and asked if they can stop the wire transfer, and my bank told me the money went through instantly and there was nothing I could do. My Bank stated they would contact Evolve Bank and let them know of the scam and ask them to return the money, however as of now we still haven’t heard anything back. Please do not fall for this scam these people are ripping people off and need to be held accountable. Fro. What I see here, it’s the same condo they were using with the same numbers and the same websites they’re just changing their name.
