In order to try and stop scammers, we are now requiring that all advertisers confirm that the phone number they use sign up with us is a valid US phone number and that they answer the number. Many rental sites are using this to help combat these scammers. We think it will go a long way in helping.
We are actively working to remove scam ads from our site. If you learn of any, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the full address of the property in the ad, including city and state so that we can investigate and remove scam ads as quickly as possible.
