Real Estate Scams

I experienced, the other day, a not so pleasant experience. I had listed a home for rent and a popular website picked it up for syndication, which Is a good thing. The unfortunate happening is that someone had somehow interacted with several potential tenants and wanted them to send dollars to certain destination in order to hold or reserve the rental property for them.

The great thing is that no one got “taken” and they contacted me to allow me to have the knowledge of the goings on. It was corrected in a timely fashion, which is great.

Bottom line, consumers including myself, need to be very careful with regards to online soliciting. The internet is a wonderful tool, but unfortunately, clever people out there choose to utilize their cleverness for negative instead of positive.
