Somers Point, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/01/2017 -- ShoreSummerRentals.com, a leader in providing shore vacation rentals in Stone Harbor or any East Coast beach town, warns people planning a trip to the shore to remain particularly vigilant when booking their accommodation. This warning is in reference to some rental property scams that have popped up throughout the country and caused consumers to lose thousands of dollars through fraudulent rental postings.
Visitors are advised to keep their wits about them when choosing which properties to rent and avoid renting from unlicensed sites like Craigslist, which do not vet postings to ensure that the poster has the ability to rent out the property that they claim.
Countless beachgoers have already fallen victim to rental fraud this year, a trend that is projected to continue throughout the coming decade. Scammers have been found to copy advertisements from trusted rental sites and repost them on websites that do not vet their posters for fraud such as Craigslist.
Renters are advised to take active steps to ensure that the property posting is legitimate. Steps that can be taken include requesting to meet the owner in person before committing to a rental, avoiding wiring money through Western Union, MoneyGram and other wiring services and being on the lookout for "too good to be true" deals.
