Victim Location 96148
Total money lost $1,569.53
Type of a scam Travel/Vacations
Found his vacation rental ad on Craig’s list. Had several text and emails back and forth. Reserved home for a week. Paid with PayPal. Was sent phony receipt saying place was secure for those dates. However in the mean time I saw the vrbo ad of same place with identical pictures, price etc so I sent message to owner thru vrbo and found out that she owned the home and not the phony owner from Craig’s list. Have notified my credit card co. Who are looking into this fraud.
