Please exercise caution as some online advertisers may be fraudulent, with fabricated email messages.

Never pay a deposit or wire funds based on an ad, without directly speaking with the advertiser/checking into the person’s identity, or meeting them in person. Fraudulent ads typically operate by emails and ask for a wire deposit, stating that the owner of the apartment/house is abroad.
