The sender claims to be "Malindi Breezepoint Hotel" <[email protected]> so I can't verify the originating IP address.

I am newbie here and can't definitely say if the website or the Facebook account are fake. Could somebody with more experience please verify if this is a scam or just bad marketing?

Site is real up since 2009, but the scammer is known http://www.baiterbase.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=27049&sid=c17094b240344c7f2c4513cfc3ebc38a

Phone and address seem fine too.

Just a scammer abusing someones website Rolling Eyes

I am a little confused about this... So are you saying that the scammer was able to access this website? or is the spammer affiliated with them?

^^No he is saying scammers often reference a legitimate business to add credibility to the scam.

In the case above though, it appears to be just spam.
