Every year "snowbirds" flock to our Pristine Beaches in Sarasota/Manatee counties in Florida, they are looking for that true escape of the Cold & Dreary Winter Weather and think "I want Sunshine & Warmth." With that being said, they either own their own place in Florida or they need to rent a furnished rental for their tropical oasis getaway.
Always be weary of the shady guy saying send money in advanced without a "reservation." Scammers love to represent themselves as the actual owner of a property, because after all the property records are public record. It's really sad to hear stories of how someone sent money to an individual only to find out that they were scammed after they arrive to what they think is their escape to paradise, only to find out that the place is already occupied and there is no recourse on getting their funds back because they no longer exist. Just in the blink of an eye, your funds and the scammer have disappeared and you're the one left without a vacation in paradise.
