15 Scams to watch out for – Fake rental listings
Fake rental listings – If you intend to rent a cottage or home for your vacation, don’t pay by wire transfer or cashier’s check. Criminals lift photos and descriptions of properties and post them online. The victims often don’t know they have been deceived until they show up, try to open the door and discover the property is already occupied.
Use verified services instead like vacation rental websites or real estate agents.
