Vacation Rental Scams

A variation of a common scam has been attempted on vacation rental homeowners. The homeowner is asked to accept a cashier's check for an amount above the rental price, deposit it and return the extra amount. Your bank might accept the check only to have it bounce in one or two weeks and you will be out whatever money you have sent back.

Please remember, NEVER AGREE to accept cashier's checks for amounts greater than the cost of your rental with the understanding that you will return the balance.

Vacation Rental Scam Alert!

Warning, never pay for a holiday rental home on the Internet with anything but a credit card. Scam artists pretending to be  homeowners can fraudulently place properties on a web site. Use a credit card that offers you protection against fraud.

Best Regards,
