7:05 a.m. A Whitefish man called to report that a man has posted his apartment on Vrbo without his permission and has been renting it out for vacations. Apparently, the false landlord has even been accepting money from would-be vacationers. The rightful owner of the apartment is worried that actual vacationers are going to show up demanding to stay in his home.
