Just wanted to pass along my story in hopes that it may prevent someone else from falling prey.
Answered an ad on Craigslist offering a vacation rental home in Eastham. Since we were looking last minute and this place was available we jumped on it. They had 6 or 7 pictures of the place and it looked pretty nice and the price was right. They said they would accept Paypal, Direct transfer, or Western Union. Western Union was their preferred method because it was instant whereas the other two options required 2 weeks to clear.

Since we were running out of time we sent the money via Western Union -- and never heard from the person again! I try to think what red flags I should have seen - maybe the fact that they were definitely steering me towards using Western Union?
I don't know. The address they were using is Old Orchard Rd. We advertise on VRBO. I have also seen my property on Craig's list offered by a scam artist.
Your best defense is to call the owner direct and ask questions about the property. We only deal with checks because credit card companies charge 3. When dealing with craigslist, meeting the person face to face and in front of the rental you're looking at, is the best way to go.
I just read your post. I know it was last year, but what happened to you is awful. I now live in Yarmouthbut was raised in Canastota. I just wanted to let you know that if you decided to vacation on the Cape again, I would be happy to let you know about the condition or the "reality" of a location before you decide to rent. I'd want it done for me.
Small town people need to stick together. Take care :. Very nice of you Capegirl.
