Buyer beware that there is a scammer using the fake name DENNIS SCHOMBURG as the alleged property manager for fake property owner BONNIE BROWN using the online bank FIFTH THIRD for unsuspecting buyers to deposit funds into by wire transfer or Zelle. These folks are scam artists and neither the real property owner or manager. Don't get ripped off! There are zero consumer protections when renting on Craigslist. Real property managers and owners actually use VRBO, Home Away or Airbnb, where you won't be scammed and have the backing of these deep pockets for your consumer protection.

Scammers just copy photos and descriptions verbatim from VRBO and post for free in a few minutes. The ads on Craigslist are of actual vacation rentals, but these scammers have "hijacked" the real ads and pretend to be the owner or manager.

I know this for a fact, since I am a vacation home owner and have seen my own house listed by this scam artist. Please report this fraudulent activity to the police asap.
