A Portuguese woman has been swindled out of €450 after paying a deposit for holiday accommodation in the Algarve.

Summer holiday rental scams begin

 

According to newspaper Correio da Manhã, the woman booked the Albufeira villa via the Custo Justo website in March for a 10-day holiday in June, and was due to pay a further €500 on arrival.

 

However, after arriving last month and with no one there to welcome her, it became apparent she was victim of a scheme.

 

Just last month the GNR police launched a nationwide campaign warning holidaymakers about the perils of online rental scams.
