  • 21/11/06 | Fake Websites

    Their are now 7 websites that try to represent themselves as us

    It has come to our attention that their are now 7 websites that have copied our text and pictures and try to represent themselves as us and our website. One girl posted her story on a local forum (thatsbj.com) and we were surprised to here that another homestay company (smart eagle) had asked her to send $500USD from America to secure her stay and of course this was the last she heard from this company.

    Please be advised that Chinahomestay.org is completely owned and managed by Caucasian Canadians ( this may be the only way to separate us) and we will never ask for money until you arrive at your stay in China. If you think you have encountered one of these unscrupulous people or sites please let us know by email: info@chinahomestay.org .

    Thanks and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. *Remember* their is only one true rent free China Homestay.
