Fraud Warning
The following FRAUD ALERT is intended to make you aware that, on rare occasions, frauds can occur on this type of website.

Anti-fraud Call Centre
Check out the new Canadian Anti-fraud call centre to find out about updates on current scams that could affect you! You can call 1-888-495-8501 or e-mail them at info@phonebusters.com. To find out more, visit their website.

Landlord Fraud Warning
Guelph Police Services have contacted Off-Campus Housing Services to make us aware of a scam that may affect landlords posting listings on the Internet.

The landlord is contacted by telephone or e-mail by someone overseas, asking to rent their accommodation. An agreement is made to send the deposit by money order or cheque. When the landlord receives the payment, it is for a considerably larger sum than was originally agreed upon. The landlord is then contacted by the "tenant" and told an error has occurred, and he/she is instructed to cash the money order or cheque and wire transfer the difference to the "tenant".

The landlord is subsequently informed by their bank that the money order or cheque is fraudulent. Unfortunately, it can take time for the bank or post office to discover that the money order or cheque is counterfeit. The victim (landlord) is usually held financially responsible as they have passed a fraudulent money order or cheque. Since the transactions are carried out by e-mail or cell phone, out of province or country, it is extremely difficult to positively identify the individual posing as the tenant.

Off-Campus Housing Services recommends that, if you receive a request from a prospective tenant for a refund of a deposit overpayment, you contact the fraud unit of your local police service.

Here are 2 examples of the fraud emails:
