To the Editor:
I commend Leslie Floyd for contacting your paper concerning the rental scams (April 24, “Martha’s Vineyard rental scams crop up with approach of summer”). This is a serious problem, and it is important that the word is spread. Some readers have been critical of the people falling for these scams, but that is not the point, and it is a bit self-righteous.
The Vineyard does not need the bad publicity that generates from these scams. Although the originators are not necessarily local, a connection would be made in people’s minds between the Vineyard and a scam.
Thank you Leslie, for sharing this information.
