Combat Rental Scams


MIBOR members continue to report that one or more of their listings has been the subject of a fraudulent ad placed on websites such as Craigslist. Listing information is lifted and placed in an ad offering the property “For Rent.” The scammer sometimes will ask for credit information or ask for an up front deposit. Typically, the scammer’s story is that they are out of the country and can’t make arrangements to show the listing. The seller of the property may report to their listing agent strange activity such as people looking in their windows, or the potential renters discover a “For Sale” sign on the property and contact the listing agent for more information.

There are a few things you can do to minimize the risk of your listing being involved in a fraudulent posting. Watch this video produced by the National Association of REALTORS® for tips. If you discover that your listing or the listing of another MIBOR member has been posted on a website fraudulently, you should notify the website immediately and report the occurrence to the Professional Services Department. Contact Jeanette Langford at (317) 956-5241 or Tracy Nierste at (317) 956-5244 for more information or to make a report.
