Scam alert - Housing rental scam

Please be aware of an ongoing rental scam targeting students in Kitchener-Waterloo. Scammers advertise rentals in a preferred location and may request the renters to answer a questionnaire asking for their personal information and banking information. Once the rental offer is accepted, the renter then sends money to the scammer with first and/or last month’s rent. The victim arrives at the designated time to receive their keys and learn that the address does not exist or that they have been misled.
