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. UEHRO and Oliver Jefferson Grand Hotel are fake. Scammers registered oliverjeffersongrandhotel.com domain on November 4, 2019. Its fake address 1512 Jackson St, Dallas, Texas 75201, USA is a parking garage address. UEHRO website shows hotel address as 1070 Tea Olive Lane, Dallas, TX 75212, USA which is a home address. Hotel has a VOIP phone +1 214 310 1931 that rings at the scammer’s desk. Everything on the hotel site is fake.
UEHRO domain was registered on Nov 5, 2019 i.e. one day after registering hotel domain address. Its fake address is 3219 Canton St, Dallas, Texas 75226 United States seems to be an abandoned or rundown building. Its phone +1 (940) 784 4796 is a VOIP phone that can ring anywhere in the world. Everything on the site is fake.
CDSBureau 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. They will use your personal information / passport photo copy in other scams.
