Someone list my rental property for rent without my approval

Hi, I have a property to rent. I only listed the rental ads on two web-site. Someone did the rental listing on Zillow without my approval. Please remove this ad and notify whoever did posted this rental not to do it again.

Hi, Yes you need to report it as the previous reply instructed. I found a listing of mine on Craig's list and what these scammers do is pull a "for Sale" listing and try to rent it to unsuspecting people, taking a deposit or rent in advance for a property that isn't even for sale. They communicate with people who answer their ads and usually say they can't get you into the property cause it's occupied and take a deposit to hold it for you. They then say they will return the deposit if you don't like it, but by then you can't find them.
Best to report them to try to protect any unsuspecting consumers.

Best to you,
Renee Sousa

But why do they want to do it on rental ad? What good can they get? I just don't get it. It's not like I will use him/her as my listing agent when someone wants to rent my unit through him/her.

Scammers are insidious, I'm sorry to hear they've been after your property.

Open the home details page, hover over "edit", click on "report problem" and chose "rental scam"
