Roswell, GA (PRWEB) August 29, 2008
RentalSeal.com has developed a new verification process for property owners to help fight against fraud and vacation rentals scams on the Internet.
Property owners can now boost their creditability by receiving a verification seal that proves that their vacation rental is legitimate. Rental Seal manually verifies each property owner's rental information. In order to pass verification, the vacation owner is required to submit proof of ownership such as a deed or recent tax documentation. If a property owner has been a member of the local chamber of commerce for more than three years, they can also be granted a property verification seal.
Vacation rental portals can greatly benefit from having rental seal. This seal will greatly diminish the risk of fraudulent listings that every vacation rental portal is exposed to, especially sites that offer free trails.
Rental Seal is currently looking for partnership with other vacation rental portals, so Internet visitors can book their vacation rentals with ease. Vacation rental portals that display Rental Seal are adding extra confidence in their listings because Rental Seal is a manual process and therefore offers fewer worries for real estate portals.
Yulia Klimov, owner of RentalSeal.com says, "Many vacation rentals web sites do very little, if anything at all, to protect vacationers from fraud. Our verification seal lets guests of vacation rentals know that they are renting from an owner that's legit." Yulia adds that verified vacation rentals are first step to fight identity thief in VRBO industry. Examples of vacation rental fraud can be seen
RentalSeal.com is making great strides to ensuring that on-line booking is a safe haven for vacationers. Property owners can now sign up for a rental seal directly through the Rental Seal web site. The application fee is $100 per year and renewal is $30.
