Scams are a reality of shopping online and offline. Zillow strives to provide a safe online community, but you should always be wary of giving personal information, financial information, or payments of any kind to people you don't know personally.
Important: If you find a fraudulent listing on Zillow, please report it by clicking "Report Listing" and selecting "Listing seems to be fraudulent or illegal." on the listing page in question.
Report Scams and Fraud
If you find a fraudulent listing on Zillow, please return to the listing page and click "Report Listing" and select "Listing seems to be fraudulent or illegal."
If you believe you have been scammed, report the incident to the FTC. If you sent money via Western Union or MoneyGram, report the incident immediately: if the recipient hasn't collected the money yet, the wire transfer company can reverse the transfer.
Below are examples of fraudulent emails received by Zillow users.
"I'm out of the country and need you to wire me the deposit."
How the scam works: You find a great rental (it's usually too good to be true), but the landlord is located out of state or out of the country. They'll rent it to you and mail you the keys if you just send a deposit.
Tip: Don't wire money to anyone you haven't met in person. If it looks like a great deal and is too good to be true, it's likely a scam. You will lose your money, and the place you were looking at isn't really even on the market.
Thank you. It is a idea what you have watch and what you could do to avoid scam and fraud.
