730 Columbus Ave, New York City

I believe 730 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10025 is a rental scam as it is only $700 a month and they want the deposit and 1st month's rent sent to  www.paymate.com.

I flagged the listing as a scam.   Zillow tends to stay on top of scam reports, which is good because not everyone is alert.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for notifying us.  I have removed the fraudulent listing.  In the future, you can report scam to us by going to the 'edit' drop down on the listing and clicking 'report a problem with listing.'

Thanks, it's gotta be a rip off but I'd hope it was taken off zillow so some poor sole doesn't fall for it. Mike

Spoken like a true New Yorker. If it's too good to be true it probably is. Good looking out. Maybe it's a print error.

I think you're right that this is a scam. Don't send any money to people you don't know and have a bad feeling about. If you are trying to rent something, you should be able to investigate the people you would be renting from, for past references, etc.
