thinking out loud here...would eliminating the "rental wanted" help? i like it as an owner who rents, but most newbies there don't read the stickies or the discussion forum and oftentimes are asking for the impossible.

another thought, requiring a reasonable post count in the forums before being permitted to use the rental boards keeping the newbies in check on both sides of the transaction might be an alternative. that seems to be something that could be handled by programming.

You donít have to be sitting in a Grand Villa, but these scam ids have zero presence on this board.
I saw the original post yesterday before it was deleted and the scammer was quick to respond denial, but turns out he was a scammer. The same 1 that has been changing usernames like diapers on a newborn.

Um ... wondering if someone ...myself (cough cough) were to TROLL this guy miserable ... would that be an un Disney / un Mouseowner thing to do?

I have benefited so much from this forum and the people on it that it would be my pleasure .. and well .. quite frankly I got the time.

In the mean time .. thanks for all you do ... sorry you have to deal with this ..

Best Mike

It looks like he is stockpiling IDs because I recall looking at his join date and it was 2017? So it appears he lets them sit until he needs a new 1.
He definitely had 0 posts though.
He also did no respond to the want ad, but contacts via pm.

Thank you Kim!! MO has been a home to me for many years. Iím here multiple times a day and love reading all the posts.

He wrote me offering to transfer points. It was an obvious tell, something I've had posted for 2 months (+200 BLT transfer) new person registers and has them all immediately. Hate to say it but use common sense folks.

It is not hard to get to grandvilla status . I have even more posts and am a mere renter. In facts owners who rent and renters should all be active posters. It is the best way to find honest owners and renters .

Most of us regulars know a lot about each other. You know I am am a retired schoolteacher who taught autistic kids. I know regulars families ,medical issues , occupations and even sexual preferences in a few cases . 😉🤣

We become family.


The rental board used to consist of our mo family . That has changed . Renters and owners need to be alert .
