Protect your family vacation in 2012 with Rent My Vacation Home

In a interview with Jay Kalin of Rent My Vacation Home dot com cautioned consumers, both travelers and property owners, to be on the lookout for scams that are linked to summer vacation rentals and vacations.

"Internet sites, , or other online classified ads (Rent My Vacation Home dot com) , are a popular place for consumers searching for last minute rentals or homeowners trying to earn more rental income during the summer vacation season," Kalin said. "Unfortunately, popular with scam artists looking to lure unsuspecting consumers into their traps as we delete them when we hear about them.

Technology, while a powerful and helpful resource, also makes it easy for thieves to copy photos and descriptions from legitimate vacation rental websites and create false Internet ads," Kalin said. "It is important for consumers to conduct thorough research before making any payments or committing to any plans."

Scammers will structure their ads in a way that forces consumers to respond quickly and often ask that rental payments be wire-transferred in order to guarantee reservations.

Kalin said he wanted to explain How to make sure who owns the Vacation Home ! Before sending Check or Money :

1.Vacationers can ask for a electric bill account number or copy from the owner and call the electric company to verify it by name and address.

2.Ask for a Insurance and agent name , policy number and phone then check the phone and address out on the net by Insurance company name and call the Insurance agent to verify owner and address.

3.Ask for a copy or email of the person’s drivers license. (maybe different address but name verification).

4.Ask Homeowner for his property number at the assessment office for that area and call for address verification and name. (Google tax assessment office for that county) You may do this without the Homeowners account number and use address and zip.

5.Ask for a copy of the car registration {maybe different address but name verification).

6.With our Insured Home check out system - Free for Homeowners on Rent My Vacation Home (no need for a deposit the insurance covers the Home).

Consumers should also be suspicious of vacation home listings that request detailed personal data, such as social security numbers or bank account information supposedly to verify your credit worthiness as a renter. In reality, these listings are a type of "phishing" scheme, used by identity thieves to steal personal information.

Avoid Fax and Email Offers. Responding to these offers will validate your contact information. If an offer seems too good to be true, it usually is.
