A recurring scenario has fraudsters using legitimate for lease or sale listing information to post false rental listings online. Many of these fraudulent listings may be poorly written; advertise a rental amount lower than what similar units or homes in the area may lease for; request that a deposit or first and last month's rent be sent to them via wire transfer before a property may be viewed or to secure the lease; or they might note upfront that due to certain circumstances, no in-person visits, to or inside the property, are possible. 

In order to guard against such fraudulent activity, Members may choose to undertake routine Internet searches of their listings. Internet fraud can be reported to local police and to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Call Centre
