Vacation renters, beware

Back in June, we wrote about a couple whose wedding plans were scuttled when the Miami Beach home they'd rented for the occasion turned out to be a scam.

Turns the vacation rental fraud victims have plenty of company. We've been tracking down information and other similar stories for the last month. In today's story, linked here, read more about vacation rental scams and how not to fall for one.

Esti and Ryan Brooks had a happy outcome: Hotel Breakwater, which was just opening on Ocean Drive, heard about the story and donated their venue for the ceremony. They're hoping the final chapter of this ordeal will involve an arrest -- and the return of their $6,300.
