Vacation Rental By Owner - Deposit withheld, deceptive advertising
VRBO SCAM!!!My friends and I need a little help.About 2 months ago we booked a house in Vermont (address 31 Hemlock View, Lot #2 Ludlow, VT 05149) through www.VRBO.com for a ski trip, and rented a house which was suppose to be amazing.
Instead, the basement had 0 heat, the steam room was still under renovation. Even with all that we did not complain. The last straw came when the owner of the house deposited our "deposit check", and since has not returned it. We contacted www.VRBO.com and they accept 0 responsibility and will not provide any assistance.
The owner of the house refuses to reply to emails, and has since taken down his listing on www.VRBO.com (address 31 Hemlock View, Lot #2 Ludlow, VT 05149) - We are looking into legal action against the owner, but we also wanted to share our experience with the rental site and this particular owned. If you feel for us and want to help, we want this story to go Viral, so that the working class will not get scammed by this owner again.
Please like / share this story so that your friends will not book this house by accident anytime in the future.Again the address is (address 31 Hemlock View, Lot #2 Ludlow, VT 05149) - Thank you all
Monetary Loss: $300.
