Rent-A-Center Donates $20,000 to Atlanta Community Food Bank
MIBOR warned that the scammers are sophisticated enough to post their phony for-rent ads more? info… on authentic Internet sites such as Craigslist and Zillow, hoping to lure people to submit personal financial information and even financial down payments. Once sent in, the money disappears and theres no house available to rent. Many scammers commit this crime outside the United States and request wire transfers, which cant be traced once received. Once consumers submit completed applications containing confidential information or send a deposit, they often become victims without even knowing it until move-in day, the Realtors group said.
