When looking for rental housing, be alert for online home rental scams. Scammers will copy real estate listings from legitimate websites and re-post the information claiming to be the property owner. The Yolo County District Attorney advises potential renters to be aware of common real estate scam red flags:
1) The advertised rental rate is significantly lower than the typical rent for a home of that size;
2) The property’s representative is unable to meet with the renter in person, often claiming they are out of the state or country;
3) The “owner” asks for cash payment upfront or asks the renter to wire money, especially through Western Union or Money Gram.
Renters are advised never to give out financial information, and refuse background or credit checks, until you have met the homeowner in person. Before making deposits or payments, view the home in person.
For more information on real estate scams, please call 855-4-YOLO-DA or visit yoloda.org. Check out the Yolo County DA press release on Housing Scams.
