  • Use your best judgment: if it seems too good to be true, it most likely is.
  • The more questions you ask the advertiser, the more you know.
  • Protect your personal details and initiate communication using our contact form.


  • Be extremely wary of sellers who do not want to use the messaging center, or meet in person.
  • Report any ads and messages you find suspicious.
  • Beware of unusual/suspicious requests


  • Avoid to wire money online or advance payments.
  • Never share your financial information to make or accept a purchase.
  • Ensure to check the items before paying.
  • The best way to pay is Cash On Delivery.
  • Do not pay using Western Union or other similar untraceable payment options.
  • When meeting up with a seller, avoid carrying more cash than necessary.


  • If you are out of area looking for a rental, be aware that thieves may post a fake rental (a real property- just not THEIR property).
  • If it's not a local property management company, investigate and get somebody local to help before you fork over your money and/or fill out a rental form with lots of personal info.
  • 'This property seems too good to be true?'- It probably is! Beware of property that looks very cheap compared to other similar properties in the local area.
  • Never rent an apartment "sight unseen".
  • Before sending or paying any money (including by cashier's check), ensure that the apartment's condition, size, features, and amenities match what was described in the online listing by visiting the apartment yourself or by asking a friend to visit for you. Don't fall for "send me the deposit and I will send you the keys".
