HOMESELLERS AND TENANTS BEWARE OF RENTAL SCAM!

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives 01152912

I just want to warn homesellers who have a vacant home up for sale to make sure you check on your home and post a sign in the window of the home that states this home is not for rent or lease.  What is happening is that there are preditors out there trying to rent vacant homes out and collect rent on these homes.  Usually they are homes that are up for sale.  It is a scam and they advertise these homes for rent when they are not the owner and have no business doing so.  This could result in a big loss for the people that think they are renting a home from a legitimate landlord and later find out they gave a deposit and rent to a stranger or criminal.  And a big loss for the real homeowner if there home soon becomes occupied by a family that was scammed.  Joyce Barnett, Remax Partners (951) 707-6150

We've seen these scammers pull this in San Jose, Cupertino & Palo Alto, too.
