Another Rental Home Scam

Just a little bit more sophisticated where the scammer used Zillow to act as a Real Estate Agent that you can read here.

The scene isn’t as far-fetched as it may seem.

A prospective renter then found the fake Tobyhanna, Pa. listing posted on rental site HotPads; which Zillow owns and feeds listings to and contacted the scammer.

After hearing from the renter, the scammer corresponded through email with her, using Bailey’s name, an email address with Bailey’s name in it, and a phone number bearing Bailey’s area code.

It's a pretty old scam and it's actually happened to me before…
