Watch out for Rental Scams

Aside from fraud on the foreclosure side of the business, scammers are now targeting an already vulnerable segment - low income borrowers.

Scammers are creating websites that look official and are asking for (and getting) social security numbers and rent deposits and promising consumers they'll get on a Section 8 waiting list. Legitimate housing authorities do not ask for this information. 

For guidance in finding affordable rental call me: Rod Williams 615-850-3453. I am a certified housing counselor working for a HUD-approved housing counseling agency.
