The safest way to pay for your vacation rental is by credit card. When you are in contact with someone who is pretending to be the owner, they might request over personal email that you pay via money order or wire transfer - these are signs to run the other direction. NEVER give out your credit card information over email if someone asks. Only use your credit card on a legitimate vacation rental website, and be sure to read emails requesting payment extra carefully. ... more

No one can know if it a scam or not, but you should not ever send your personal information or money to someone you have not met. Don't rush the system, make the person offering the home show it to you and make sure they have a key to the home. No guarantee, but people who get scammed just need to stop and think. If you get in a rush and try to rent a home sight unseen, chances are great you will get scammed. "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!"
