BUT, we just wish to note this warning that deceitful vacation rental ad activity has picked up again in Your local craigslist ads, Kauai. Our personal rent house in Princeville is the subject material of several scam advertisements just lately, with all the poster using pictures stolen from your legal advertising. Fortunately, potential Guests usually sense something is improper before they wire money to the various Well Fargo Bank accounts in Las Vegas& elsewhere used to accept these misdirected repayments. Sadly, my calls for the Branch Managers at these Wells Fargo branches is met by total disregard that accounts at their bank are being used that is why .

This is posted under top concerns.
Four owners at HBR, wherever I own, had this occur to them. Luckily nobody sent repayment and the renters got dubious when all the hackers asked for payment via wire. Everyone called another number they are going to found for the actual entrepreneur and learned the rip- off. I have a friend who also owns a home in Italia and she too was hacked and individuals ended up displaying up at her house and of course could not gain gain access to .
NEVER wire money. Always examine the format and spelling around the ad. 99% of the time , you notice misspellings and information not true about the property. One I know in showed the outside of Pali Ke Kua but the advertisement for any rental at Hanalei Gulf Resort. Another thing to perform is if you do view a good deal on CL, google and yahoo the property and find out if an additional ad comes up like VRBO, Flipkey, management companies etc. React on that site and state you saw an ad upon Craigslist.
