Rent My Vacation Home dot com offers tips on how to keep a family from the type of scams below that are now commonplace in the USA. Two men are accused of scamming at least 15 vacation home renters out of more than $50,000, police said Wednesday.
These men allegedly posed as vacation rental agents on the top 3 major internet vacation home rental sites showing clients online photographs of properties they claimed were for rent.
They received down-payments from clients, who would arrive to find that the residence they thought they had reserved but had never been available for rent, according to police. The 2 were also charged with theft as well as allegedly renting the same homes to people. They were not allowed to do business on Rent My Vacation Home as they tried to stay listed but were removed.
