***Renters Beware***Weekly Fraud Alert: DRE warns of imposter landlords

The California DRE issued a consumer alert this week warning renters to be on the lookout for fraudulent landlords.  The imposters often are able to convince potential renters to pay money, which may include a first and last month’s rent and a security deposit, as well as follow up rental payments, for a house that is not owned by the supposed landlord.
