Somewhere in United States
| VRBO and HomeAway scam, Boutique Rental email@example.com Will wait for owner to contact renter stating the property is not available. Then will email renter claiming to represent multiple vacation rentals on VRBO that are available, asking for a Swiss wire transfer to pay for property. Will use owner\'s real name in the reply and link to other sites that they are listed on (TripAdvisor etc) in the email. Beware wire transfers that are sent to countries outside that listed on the owner\'s address and ALWAYS verify the owner\'s identity with a phone call rather than VRBO account messages prior to wire transfer.|
Boutique-rntl.com was registered 10/25/13 so I am hoping the bad publicity will make the scammer deactivate this site.
