Seems like there is an ever growing number of renting scams out there. Probably due to the fact that more people are desperate to find a place to stay and more willing to fall for something that is too good to be true, because they are running out of options. Sadly Its no longer safe for either side to skip research, however while most landlords would never dream of not running background checks,(I certainly wouldn't, ever application goes through www.tenantverification.com even ones I have already concluded would be a bad choice) few potential tenants do the same research on landlords and property.
