Real estate scam

According to the current web page context, rental scams are when someone misrepresents a rental property or themselves to get money or information from a potential tenant. The property may be fake, already rented, or not owned by the scammer. Scammers may use fake ads, fake websites, or hijacked listings to lure renters. Renters should be wary of low prices, upfront payments, and a lack of in-person viewing.
