Beware of Scams

Beware of classified ad scams for rentals in Mont Tremblant

If you look through the online classified ads in Quebec notice a huge selection of vacation rentals in Mont Tremblant. There are numerous classified listing sites that offer various properties for rent throughout the seasons. Unfortunately, there is always the risk of falling victim to a classified ad scam when using websites that don’t verify the authenticity of their content such as Craigslist.

 

On classified sites that have listings for any type of rental, scammers will often try to entice consumers by offering a property at a ridiculously low price. Our best advice; beware of classified ads that look too good to be true because more often than not, it’s a scam.

 

If you are surfing the internet for any type of accommodation, pay attention to the following details:

 

Does the ad show a local phone number?
To be sure you are dealing with a local company or individual, avoid ads with unknown area codes on their contact information.

 

Does the ad ask you to wire money?
A legitimate local company with rentals in Mont Tremblant will always offer you the option to pay by credit card, so you know who is charging your card and you will always have a way to track your money.

 

Does the ad show contact information including business name, email, and address?
Many scam artists try to stay anonymous by avoiding to give you any real contact information. It is easy to find information about an existing business or landlord.
