Sioux Falls man scammed on phony rental website

by

SIOUX FALLS, S.D (KELO AM) - Police say a Sioux Falls man has lost $900 dealing with a fraudulent, renter’s website.

     Officer Sam Clemens says the forty-year-old victim wired a damage deposit and the first month’s rent for property on North Conklin Avenue.

     Clemens says the victim became suspicious when contact became difficult and a key never arrived.  He says some scammers claim to be out-of-state or out-of-country.  But legitimate owners will have an operative in Sioux Falls to allow property visits 

     Clemens says the common theme to the rental scam is that potential renters are not allowed inside the home or apartment.

     He says if there are tenants in a place you’re considering renting ask them about the landlord.
