Hi! I'm a newbie here so thanks for your patience in sorting out this matter.

We bumped into a family who arrived overseas and found out the place they put a deposit for doesn't really exist!

http://www.vacationhomerentals.com/vacation-rentals/Santa-Monica-California-vacation-rental-apartment-proID-49393.html

It looks like it's listed in quite a few places - here's another one:

http://www.carentnow.com/rental-home/4534/for-rent-house-Santa-Monica-CA.asp

How can we catch these scammers?

They've been cloaking behind the identity of "Jeffrey Blau" who is reputable in the real estate scene which is how they fool folks.

After reporting this incident - it sounds like it's not "big" enough fish which is discouraging which is how I found these forums.

If anyone has any ideas, it would be appreciated. I'd rather another family not be scammed again like this so if anyone feels like baiting them, please do!

What do you exactly mean by catch?

If you mean apprehend, that's very unlikely.

If you do bait them, you must do so under a COMPLETELY false identity. Baiting from a character which is the "real you" in any way is just not safe.
