  Scam Alert!!!! -Click Here for More Articles-   
 

Landlord2Landlord member, Richard R. from Charlotte, NC writes:
"I think someone is trying to scam me. I got a call
from a woman in the UK. She wanted one of my
available listing. She sent a $7,000 check to hold the
unit with the understanding I would refund some of
the funds for her travel to Charlotte. I called the
bank which is in Florida. The check was for a closed
account."


We are getting reports like this from members
accross the country. If member, Richard, had not
called the bank, the woman would have taken
his "refund" and cashed the check never to be seen
again.


 A common variation of this scam is that instead of
calling the landlord for funds to travel, the scammer
would have shown up unexpectedly on the landlord's
steps wanting to sign a lease. Upon signing the
lease, the scammer would have then asked for
a "refund" for expenses and cashed the check before
the landlord finds out the initial check was not good
Thanks to member Richard R. for the alert.

If any members are scammed or hear about other scams,
please let us know. This is precisely why
Landlord2Landlord was created. We must look out for
each other. Predators look at the rental community
as easy pickings.
