I am pretty sure we have been scammed trying to book accommodation for an apartment at 530 St Philip St, New Orleans. The property was listed on craiglist …craigslist.org/vac/3104194948.html. We signed a contract with the owner through an agent and paid a deposit of $300. This resulted in a demand for the full payment ($600) to secure the property. We have refused to pay any more and now believe we have been scammed. Has anybody else had a problem with this property or an owner by the name of Lynne Mayfield (address in Cleveland Ohio) or her agent Frank Lescott?
There were no reviews of this property on Trip Advisor. I know, should have known better!
