PROJECT: HOLIDAY SCAMMER MIAS SCHREUDER

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

As the popularity of vacation rentals surges, so does the prevalence of scams targeting eager travellers seeking accommodation. 


These scams can take various forms, ranging from fake listings and misrepresented properties to non-existent rentals and phishing schemes. The allure of picturesque destinations combined with the anonymity afforded by online transactions creates an ideal breeding ground for deceptive practices.


It is imperative for travellers to exercise caution, conduct thorough research, and employ robust verification measures to ensure that their dream vacation does not turn into a nightmare of financial loss and disappointment.


Mias Schreuder is one of many holiday scammers operating through a vacation rental advertisement on the Rustenburg Koop en Verkoop's Facebook page.
