(WJBK) - Melanie Duquesnel, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau, joins us for this Money Monday to tell us about some summer vacation scams to watch out for.
When it comes to booking rental properties, avoid sites that aren't widely known and utilized, like VRBO and AirBnB are. Also be cautious if the site asks for your credit card to lock in the date.
She reminds us that internet reviews are our friends, too. A quick Google search can often yield telling results of whether the rental or vacation package is legitimate.
