The consumer vacation home watchdog site vrdg.org “WARNING” people looking to rent vacation home to avoid this site. The gripe is that the site owners do not police the site. Scammers are postings bogus rental properties.
Below are some of the allegations.
Here is an email I sent to VacationHomes.com today. I found multiple fake listings while looking for less than 10 minutes today. I called VacationHomes.com, but we directed to a voicemail each time. This site is absolutely bogus. Do not rent a home on there.
I am with Five Star Beach Properties in Destin, Florida. We received a concern from a guest who saw a ‘cloned property’ on your website at a 1/5 of the price. Someone has stolen our property information and photos and created a listing here:
You will see Casa Blanca on our website here:http://www.fivestargulfrentals.com/p…?PropertyID=16
We tried calling both numbers listed and did not get a person. Please remove this listing. I do not know if there are any other of our properties that have been copied, but you probably should remove. I am forwarding all of this information to Vacation Rental Complaints, Vacation Rental Scams, Rental Fraud. If you guys can’t control your website I am going to let everyone know not to use it. I am also sending this to the BBB.
