I know this topic is old, but thought this was worth mentioning, for others who read this thread. While there is a very real threat to fraud on the internet, it has been my experience that a lot of military folks buy and subsequently rent their homes in this area. While most of them use websites such as militarybyowner.com or ahrn.com, it's not unheard of for them to exhaust all avenues to advertise their properties. There have been numerous occasions where I have spoken to a homeowner overseas. Like others, I would encourage anyone to research the homeowner and or property to see who's name is legally attached.
