We have received 2 emails from 'Alice' since late last night with the exact same text:

Replied asking for extra details, and received the 'extra details' as an attachment Wink

Hello,
Thank you for your reply.I`ve included in the booking form the exact period, the link with the property that I would like to book it, names and address of our party members so you can edit the booking contract properly.
Also there are the details of my credit card.

If something else is needed please advise.

Kindest Regards,
Alice




This has come after receiving a fake text enquiry on Tuesday from a German number, asking if they could book, and then a second text from the same number with the question 'I hope I didn't made (sic) a mistake, can you please confirm if this is your accommodation' with a link to a 'HA' page with an incorrect URL.

And, this morning a guy from a call centre on the Southeast Asian subcontinent phoning on behalf of Rent Holiday Rentals, who was certain he could get us to part with a subscription payment until we introduced him to our callblocker Twisted Evil
