From your description of what occurred this shouldn’t have even gotten to this point. You should have been made whole by Tripadvisor in the first place IMO.

That is what we are here for - when a company really did do a consumer wrong and our advocates do a fantastic job.

Remember that when it’s fund raising time! Without help from everyone this site wouldn’t be able to do what they do.

Yes, I have already forwarded TripAdvisor answer to Dwayne and asked him to send a link to me to donate part of refund to the organization.

Thanks all supports from the forum. It did give me a lot of comfort to my situation.

The world full of scammers. Everyday, there is new story about scammer or horrible service, or experience about vacation rental. Hope governments will place regulations to this area and do better oversight of online travel agencies since more people to use online agencies to plan their traveling.
Meantime, I think I will go back to use my travel agency with real honorable agent to book my vacation rental. The price will be higher. However, the service will be a lot better.
Anyway, Jsn55, thanks for your support in the past few days.
