Well this is a rare occurrence for us so will be keeping my fingers crossed. Having a separate account to deal with wire transfers makes a lot of sense.  If we get more foreign guests I'll consider that option.  Thanks

Summer jobs generally not a scam. But, these are J visas and they either need a place to stay or someone to host them.

Long term stay scam involves getting you to run a stolen credit card for way more money than the rooms will cost and then asking you to send them the extra money so they can rent a car, pay for shipping the luggage, etc.

You send the money, the card is no good, you lose the money you sent and there is no $5000 reservation either.
