Scam Description

The domain rentalchicagoland.com is taking content from copyrighted website kellyrentals.org and posing as a legitimate business. I contacted the company and had a contract to rent event furniture, and paid them a deposit. However I am not able to confirm with them that they are a legitimate company. There is no business registration and no company address. I believe this is a scam. Please review and hopefully revoke the site address to save potential victims to this scam.
