New Scam in the Seattle Apartment Market

According to the Seattle Times, there’s a new scam in the housing market. Online scammers advertise listed homes and foreclosed properties as for rent on popular rental websites such as Craigslist, with potential renters sending a deposit before receiving the keys. Be wary if the deal looks to be good to be true and/or the “property manager” asks you to wire funds through Western Union or Moneygram without letting you see the rental unit.
