 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   
Email Address:
   
Somehow manages to get emails from VRBO and Homeaway. Pretends to own the property. Quotes a low price and attempts to get the client to wire money and to pay in full for the ski rental up front for an additional discount for the lodging.
Clients reported him to the FBI and Police in several locations. Names will not be given at this time due to the pending investigation.

Be leary of those who do not accept credit cards. Look on the calendar on VRBO and Homeaway of the
home you are interested in. Contact the owner directly by telephone or email. Scammers try not to give telephone information and will sign letters with false names. Make sure you pay a deposit by check or by credit card directly to the owner.
