Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I have copy-pasted the e-mail I received below. A few points:
1) The deal is way too good to be true.
2) The description of the vacation rental they offered does not match the photos of the house on their site - I was able to find the house in the photos and the house from the description on different sites.
3) In my search for a vacation rental, I have only requested 3 quotes via vrbo.com (operated by homeaway.com). Somehow this scammer discovered my e-mail address and the exact dates I wanted. Be careful what info you give away when requesting quotes!!
