ALERT: Rental Property Scams

Some months ago, we published an alert in the TAR DIGEST about listed properties for sale being fraudulently advertised as rental properties ....WITHOUT the knowledge of either the property owners or listing brokers. The scam artist then obtains (and absconds with) rental deposits and/or first one or two months' rent. For a more complete picture of how the scam works, the FBI now has an explanatory page -- with MUCH more information -- on their website HERE.

RENTALS.COM recently posted a Consumer Alert on its website, regarding the same scam, HERE.
