HomeAway slammed with scams

 

Vacation rentals can be a dream…. or a nightmare. Can you imagine turning up to your luxury Italian villa only to realise that it doesn’t even exist? Scammers can easily steal the details of properties from legitimate websites and then repost them to listings sites like HomeAway without the owner knowing. It’s so important to only book with reputable agencies, who will be able to take responsibility for anything that goes wrong.

Beware of agencies which don’t have control over their portfolios… Check out this great Washington Post article for more information about how HomeAway shirks responsibility and essentially allows scammers to operate without consequences.
