NYC Fake Apartment & Room Mate Scam Notice

There is a rampant scam that has been plaguing Public Housing groups on FaceBook as well as Craigslist. These scammers post apartment listings or randomly message you to tell you that there is an apartment or room available.

After sending a few pictures, they ask you to apply and then pay a security deposit, mostly via Zelle because Zelle doesn’t do much about scammers and after you pay, they disappear. Please watch this video for more details and remember to share and subscribe to spread this warning!
