Sorry but your money is gone, never wire anything, use pay-pal or credit card and you can dispute the charges. Next time your looking to rent for vacation use VRBO.com I use it when we go on vacation in Florida, they always are spot on and they have reviews on property's and the owners and they have locations all over the us and world.


No, sorry, your money is gone forever. Please heed the warnings on Craigslist about wiring money.
