Rental Housing Scams on FPF

Warning About Rental Housing Scams

Rental housing scams are increasingly common and have, unfortunately, appeared on Front Porch Forum.

That said, people can circumvent safeguards, so we recommend exercising appropriate caution when connecting with others through the internet.
