The Fort McMurray REALTORS® are warning members of the community about a rental scam.

In a press release, the organization wrote that homes listed for sale on MLS® are appearing as homes for rent on Craig’s List. The ads have escalated to the point that renters are showing up at these homes looking to get the deal done.

Fort McMurray REALTORS® are doing what they can to resolve the issue.

They are also advising everyone to be cautious about who they are communicating with and to not send deposits without first verifying the rental property.
