Renting a house in VRBo

Never rent with VrBO you will have your worst nightmare, I rented an apartment in NY for 5 months. While I was there we had an extreme severe mice infestation. In only one of the nights, there were 5 mice killed on the mousetrap. They were screaming the hole night...

jonathon@***.com Jonathon Parker pitched me and I fell for his nonsense and paid 1/2 of the $5,000 and then he jerked me around for a year and delivered nothing. Yes, nothing. He appears to be a con man and does this over and over. Just another cheap price of s Here is the last phone number I have for him. +61 4** *** ***

Did not meet refund promises - avoid this organisation

Update by user Sep 26, 2021

I raised a report with ASIC Reference Number: 9780**** but as Discovr refused to respond to correspondence the matter was simply dropped. Apparently the amount was too small, even though collectively with all the other businesses similarly affected, it amounted to a lot more.

My guess is that Darren Mathers is well versed in exactly how much he can rip people off without raising the matter sufficiently to warrant more action by ASIC. Really rotten deal for small businesses being constantly ripped off the same way over and over again.

Original review posted by user Aug 27, 2021
Back in 2016 I signed up to Discovr's promoting themselves as a booking service and promising a full refund of the joining fee if we didn't achieve a certain level of bookings in a certain time). In any event, no bookings ever eventuated, and neither did my refund. I've since found many others similarly treated, even as recently as this year.

User's recommendation: Avoid like the plague.

Non responsive, refund????

Darren Mathers and Discovr Bookings promised us a 4 x ROI or all our money back. The project hasn't even launched and I cant get hold of them. they are unresponsive. How will we get our investment back if they don't answer any of my messages?

User's recommendation: Don't get involved!!!!

Well, it seems as though Darren is still up to his old tricks of making refund promises he does not keep. My business unfortunately had dealings with him back in 2016 about the same thing and never got my money back either despite his numerous promises to the contrary.

I still have ALL the emails to prove it. I was even threatened with legal action because I called other tour operators to tell them how we were treated.
