Rental Resources: Scam Alert

RENTAL SCAM ALERT

FRAUD WARNING

 The City of Platteville and UW-Platteville campus continue to be a target for rental scams, with college students who advertise sublets frequently being targeted. Please follow these simple common-sense rules to avoid being a victim:

  •  Deal locally with people you can meet in person.
  •  DO NOT rent to someone who wants to take the apartment without viewing it in person first.
  •  Fake cashier checks and money orders are common. Banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fraud is discovered weeks later.
  •  Never give out financial information.
