Scammers Duping Public With Fake Rental Ads
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and REALTORS® in Prescott and the Quad Cities are warning the public to beware of fraudulent rental advertisements. Advertisements of this nature posted on websites such as Craigslist, could lead to the theft of personal information and money, typically by way of deposits and application fees that cannot be recovered. One way to safely search for a rental property is to contact a local real estate office or property management company.
