BEWARE OF NEW SCAM!!!! Student looking for subtenants have received responses from a person that lives abroad claiming interest in the unit and requesting removal of the ad from the site. They are requesting personal information (last name, first name, address and email). They claim they will mail you a check and ask you to deduct the rent amount etc. This is NOT legitimate and the check is FAKE. Please contact our office if you are concerned you have been involved in any scam.
