Sherry, As a rental vacation home owner on the Island,did I tell you about our property manager and the Venezuela scam???? To cut a long story short, he received a phone call(s) from renters all upset about a screw up with reservations. Turns out that there is an operation running in Venezuela where "travel agents" are renting out homes/resorts and issuing receipts and rental confirmation forms. Our property manager was named on the false forms along with his company. One of the properties targetted is a known rental in the Malmok area. One family was advised to just get a cab at the airport and they would know where the house was. It turned out the taxi driver did not. After driving around in circles they finally phoned our property manager who was dumbfounded. He met them at the property and saw firsthand the false documents they had been given in Venezuela!!!!! He tells me there are a lot of scams going on.

Can't be too careful. You should see some of the enquiries we have had on our house.
