As the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There are some ways to help protect yourself from rental scammers.

First, you can look up the rental address on the county property appraisers website to see if the person you are talking with is the legitimate owner of the property. If they are not it should raise a big red flag to check further before giving anyone your deposit money. As someone else said, there have been a number of scams like this on Craigslist lately.

Did you know that you can search a public version of the local MLS for rentals at

Good luck with your rental search.

Scam, Scam, Scam. Run the other direction and don't be fooled for the "cheap" price. There is a rash of these type of listings on Craigslist at too good to be true prices. Too many unsuspecting consumers have been sucked into these situations by criminals just wanting your money. Go to a reputable Property Management Company or deal with a rental specialist Realtor to find your next home.
