The owner advertises in a classified on Craigslist, or vacation rental websites.
The owner types in a wording style similar to all the Nigerian Oil minister scams we've all seen.
He is overseas on business and cannot meet with you.
He will not tell you the unit number, as he has been the victim of scams before. (This one is precious)
You cannot inspect the condo without first placing a deposit.
To hold the condo, you are to wire him money via Western Union. (Are your red flags up yet?)
These scams are nothinig new, but they are now closer than ever to home in that they have photos of Killington condos both inside and out, and are representing they are owners. I'm sure if this exists, other resorts are being scammed as well.
