Hi Ethel.

There is enough scamming going on with the rental business to take great care before providing any payment.

Don't be afraid to ask for a copy of the most recent tax bill marked paid and a copy of their driver's license. If they hesitate, come up with excuses, or can't provide this basic information, there a good chance they are playing games...likely at your expense.

Good luck,
