July 18th 2014

In recent days there have been a number of fraudulent postings on this site. The fraudulent activity included postings by indivuduals posing as landlords of properties that do not actually exist using photos from other area apartment listing. These individuals require deposit funds sent via wire transfer, which in most cases cannot be verified or retrieved in such fraudulent events.
Harvard Medical School recommends that all respondents view any attempt to collect money by an ad poster by way of wire transfer as an attempt to defraud and immediately cease communications
