VRBO – James Silvestrini Review


I went onto VRBO to rent a property, it has you contact owner, a James Silvestrini contacted me via email, gave me a rental contract and a paypal account ([email protected]) to make payment. I was having an issue with paypal, he told me he was as well, and he would let me know when his paypal account was resolved. He contacted me today asking if I can pay directly with my bank account. I told him yes to get his information. I have attached his bank account info.Thru a little sleuthing from a friend, she found the home owners name and phone number, I contacted him and he told me he does not use VRBO nor did he know of a James Silvestrini. He told me he has a listing of who is renting in June and they only book for a week at a time, that this was a fraud.I contacted VRBO and all they did was remove the posting, nothing further. They could not even find me another rental for that time period I needed in June. They said that is the chance I have to take.With the Grace of God I was able to not lose money, but I felt you should be aware of this scam so hopefully others will be aware of this website and this person.
