Super Bowl Rental Nightmares
It isn't bad enough that Mother Nature shamed Dallas/Fort Worth Super Bowl week with one of those rare but rugged ice storms, temperatures in the teens, and a thick blanket of fluffy snow covering icy streets and sidewalks. Rolling home blackouts forced us to buy electricity from Mexico. Even worse, some DFW homeowners are getting royally ripped off by shady home rental companies.
Take Fort Worth resident Wanda McDaniel. Since she owns a 4-bedroom house with a big backyard and swimming pool, and since the house isn't too far from Cowboys Stadium, Wanda decided that renting her house for the Super Bowl might be a good idea.
