Victim Location 83704

Type of a scam Rental

A rental listing was posted on Zillow as well as a few other popular rental sites. The rental address that was advertised was 8015 W Corona St Boise, ID 83709. On the listing the “landlord” put their email address (provided above) and asked they be contacted for further information about the property. On Zillow I pressed the contact landlord button and emailed about being interested in the property. Through the emails many questions were dodged, and after further investigation we discovered that the person was using an expired license and the name and personal information on the expired license to claim to be someone else. The property was listed on the ADA County Assesors Office under a completely different name than the person who was claiming to own the property and was trying to rent it out. The scammer had us fill out a rental application and send pictures of our ID to get a background check. No money was sent as the scammer was unable to provide proof of ownership of the property.
