Vacation rental scam!

We have been scammed by a guy who phished a Florida realtor’s email. We had already transfered funds to a Barclays account in Surrey, England of a VIKTOR STOIAN (probably Eastern European), before we found out from the real property manager that it was a scam. There were other victims. So, beware!!! The Washington Post Travel section on Sunday, May 26, had a special article about this. We were stupid to wire funds to a foreign country.  Remember to always pay by credit card and check their email addresses!
