Truckee police warn of return of vacation rental scams

Truckee police are warning you about vacation scams. You’ll usually find them on Craigslist. Police say people post photos of homes-that aren’t even theirs, and say they’re available for rent. They then ask for check or money wired to lock down the rental. If you are planning on a vacation rental, especially in a tourist area, they recommend you use legit sites and book with a credit card so you have fraud protection.
