LVRenta Mansion / online vacation rental
This is how is works so beware of this eponymous site which also supposed does "catering, wedding planning, special events, and arranging for show tickets, transportation as a package deal; and now has spanned to other LVRenta____.com Do not do business with Camille Milke, her "partner in crime" Brian Milke, or anything related to LV Renta on the web and located in Las Vegas.
Here's the scam, they offer a "mansion" for rent for $300/night. It's supposed their vacation house which they rent out. LIE #1. While searching for a birthday party spot in Vegas over the weekend of Halloween 2008; and they were everywhere on craigslist, the Web. I did due diligence by calling and speaking with both of the Milkes, inquiring about more pictures of the property. I also did a quick Google search and found their names associated with rental-type problems in New Mexico and Nevada. BAD BAD STUFF . The red flag went of here. STOP reading this and check their names NOW.
It was MONEY, MONEY, MONEY first; they created one-way electronic contract and started calling daily at work and home. They wanted $1400 in advance (pay in full before arrival) which was part of a refundable security deposit.
Brian Milke indicated the website was new to PayPal but they had a personal PayPal account to which the money had to be sent 30 days in advance. I did it - got very uncomfortable and wanted verification of payment and access to the property. After several calls from each, the developed a "code" that would be unique for me to gain access.
This left me unsettled, and after a few days, I decided to cancel. I could not, in good conscience, ask valued friend and colleagues to fly from different parts of the country, based on a few web pictures and the a "code." I emailed a cancellation 3 weeks in advance - and they kept every cent.
No services were ever provided, they simply kept the money, decline further communication, and fought tooth and nail when I tried to void the transaction through VISA.
As a last ditch effort on 12/24/2008 I tried to request at least a 50% refund - and the PayPal request was CANCELED. The $1400 really just that - money. The point of my post is to warn other avoid CAMILLE MILKE or BRIAN MILKE, anywhere they may be located.
The entire suite LV Renta-mansion/wedding/concierge and all they supposed offer is not true and they have scammed others. STAY AWAY!
And if you somehow read this Camille - know this: you lied about everything including a daughter who "supposedly committed" suicide. Enjoy the money and remember, "suicide is a message to those left behind."
