We've all heard the stories: People arriving for their dream vacation but finding, on arrival, that they have paid a scammer instead of the owner or manager of the accommodation and they have no booking. It does happen and we'd love to nail the people who perpetrate this nasty crime.

Twice in the past few weeks, we have prevented attempts by scammers to add fraudulent listings to HawaiiChee. We have procedures to detect fraudulent listings and we can be pretty confident that they are working well. What we can't do so easily is to identify the people behind the crime. They use false identities and a disguised internet connection location.

At HawaiiChee, we take verification very seriously so the chance of a scammer getting a listing on our site is extremely low. However, we know that the scammers are out there and they will keep trying and they will find sites where there is little or no verification. The best defense is for you to be alert to the risk and take these precautions, particularly when finding a rental elsewhere:
