Information Concerning Home Rental Scams

Spring Hill, TN – We have taken a couple reports in the last month dealing with home rental scams. Both of these scams originated on Facebook Marketplace. Both rental homes are currently owned by American Homes for Rent. Both victims used the mobile payment app “Zelle” to transfer money to the scammers. Both victims were asked to pay a $100 application fee, a $1,000 deposit, and the first month’s rent. In one case, the scammer gave the victim the key code (self-guided tour) to access the keys to the house. The scammer will email a fake lease. The scammer will also ask for your personal identifying information such as your date of birth and social security number. The “Landlord” will never meet you in person. They will have a built-in excuse of why they can’t. If you send the scammer money, they will come up with other reasons why you need to send them more money until you realize it’s a scam.

Please read this blog post from the Federal Trade Commission to help you avoid a rental scam: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2019/06/keys-avoiding-home-rental-scams.

If you fall victim to a rental scam, please report it to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (https://www.ic3.gov/) and your local law enforcement agency.
