CDSBureau investigation team found that the scammers are trying to get money through fake hotel booking and steal travel documents (like passports) and individual information. The ISWF and Denise Carrera Hotel both have fake addresses. Hotel domain was registered in April and ISWF domain was registered August 1, 2019. These domain names are privacy protected and their registrant names are not available. Both the phone numbers mentioned above are voice over IP (VOIP/internet) numbers that can ring anywhere in the world. Hotel website has stolen pictures from various hotel sites including Mark Hotel and Wellington Hotel. iswfoundation.org has stolen pictures from various websites including bebegroup.
CDSBureau highly recommends to stay away from them. Don’t provide any of your traveling documents or personal information. Don’t share credit cards or send money.
