Please be aware
There has been an uptick in leasing scams. Please be careful before signing a lease, a sublease, or sending any rent, deposits, or other fees in relation to a lease. If you are unsure about the validity of a proposed lease, please contact us before signing the lease or sending any funds.
The increased popularity in using payment apps (such as Zelle and Vemo) has brought an increase of scams targeting those same apps. For example, if a potential landlord requests payment using one of these apps, please contact us to review the validity of the request before sending any payment.
In general, we advise following recommended cautionary procedure (pause, get more infomation, verification) if you receive any texts or calls warning of fradulent activity on your application, especially when asking for you to respond with personal information. It is probably a scam! When in doubt, contact your bank or provider directly before proceeding.
