Igenious, these scam people

The scan runs something like this:
  • We get a booking from an 'intermediary' on behalf of their client.
  • The 'intermediary' pays with the client's credit card information.
  • The funds clear on our account for a three week stay in one of our apartments.
  • At the last minute, the 'intermediary' contacts us saying his client has cancelled.
  • We are requested to refund the payment not back to the credit card but to another bank account.
  • The client never shows.
