Rental Fraud - Warning to Students >

The National Landlords Association (NLA) is reminding would-be student tenants to be vigilant when looking for somewhere new to live and to avoid getting scammed. These scams trick people into paying an advance fee to rent a property, and in some instances fraudsters use NLA branding or fake letters from NLA Local Representatives in order to add legitimacy to the scam and lure their victims into a false sense of security.

The NLA has produced guidance about avoiding online rental fraud, which you can find here:

Police Scotland have produced an information leaflet on how to avoid rental fraud: Police Scotland Advice on Avoiding Rental Scams
