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 frequently being targeted. Please follow these simple common-sense rules to avoid being a victim:

 When Subletting or looking for a Roommate:

  •  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.
  •  Check references - Do a Google search on the person's name and email
  •  Always obtain payment before the subtenant moves in. If they ask to pay rent after they move in -THIS IS A SCAM!!
  •  Refuse Over-Payment
  •  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.

Looking for Housing:

  1. Always view the rental before signing a lease.
  2. Google person's name and email to check for past scams.
  3. Surest Sign Of A SCAM is when the lister asks for money upfront!!! IF someone asks for this - walk away!
  4. NEVER wire money - this is the same as sending cash, once you send it, you have no way to get it back.
