Rental Scam

A warning to your readers.

Advertisers on the self catering holiday homes web site are being warned to be on the lookout for rental scams.

Some advertisers on have been targeted over the past couple of months. The applicant fills out the contact box on an individual advertiser’s property and then states he or she is looking for accommodation.

Quite often this person will talk about a” room” being advertised and they must have this for a number of weeks, sometimes later in the year.

The applicants state they are a business person or model and in a couple of cases say they are coming from Africa using a Yahoo email address.

If an advertiser replies they then arrange to send a payment far in excess of the rental for the agreed period and then immediately want the excess refunded. If the advertiser does this, they will then find that the original payment is bogus. Although all dealings between advertisers and renters are nothing to do with, I am anxious to warn advertisers of this problem says Philip Suter.
