How to spot a Scam from a real inquiry?

I have read many blogs on scams to vacation homeowners, I suggest we compile a list os scams we have seen so all homeowners are aware.

 

I suggest the following guidelines for this blog:


  1. Type each scam in a separate BOLD line in the first line and expand it in a separate parragraph.
  2. Do not comment on other scams, lets make a very complete list of warning signals for all homeoners to be aware.
  3. Feel free to "Like" the ones you consider probable and risky
