Remit Rent

Terry – May 18, 2020

Victim Location 11205

Total money lost $4,000

Type of a scam Rental

I am in the market for a month to month or long term rental in Santa Cruz. I saw a listing on airbnb,

cragslist and remitrent for a property at *** *** **** ***** ****. I reached out via all channels to see

what our options were: 1)

ok-3-short-blocks-to-beach/ 2)

with/7120456359.html 3)

source_impression_id=p3_1589744177_fKhYOIawOyTFTG5I&guests=1&adults=1. It appears as

though the only legitimate listing is the one on airbnb. I, however, submitted two payments of $2,000

via Zelle transfer from Chase and provided copies of paystubs, W2s and photo of my passport. I had

also booked via airbnb, and realized that this was a scam once I spoke to the owner via airbnb who

flagged this as as an imposter of the actual home owner. He provided a copy of his supposed drivers

license and other details to confirm home ownership.
