Vacation Rental Scams!!! Know before pay!
Recently there have been a nasty rash of fraud reports in reference to vacation rental scams. If you are planning a trip and surfing the net to locate a great vacation rental - you need to be aware of the following before booking and paying a deposit.
When you find a property for rent, google the property address, sender's email address, phone number, sender's name and even parts of the email itself. Check, cross check and double check to ensure the property is a rental!
If the deal sounds to good to be true - it is! Do not go with your gut research the validity of the rental company and the property. If you locate the home on the internet as "for sale" call the realtor to verify it is also a rental.
