Calgary, Alberta, Canada Annonces Classées: Preventing scams and fraud. Best practices.

Recognizing scams


Most scams involve one or more of the following:
  • inquiry from someone far away, often in another country
  • Western Union, Money Gram, cashier's check, money order, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee"
  • inability or refusal to meet face-to-face before consumating transaction

    Signs of a Rental Scam

    1 - Most legit posters will leave either a phone number or website link to their property listed. If there is no phone number or website link then always be prepared that this might be a scam.
    2 - If the price is too good to be true then it probably is a scam. Especially if number 1 falls into place.
    3 - If the owner seems to be pushy on getting information out of you. SS number, address, phone number, bank account details etc.
    4 - Owner wants the deposit first and is unable to show the property.
    5 - Owner is living out of state or a foreign country.
    6 - Owner wants you to pay for a credit report first then tells you to go to a credit reporting site of his choice.
    7 - Owners requests an application fee before you see the property.
