Home/Room Rental Scam Impersonation Scam
The scammer impersonates a real estate agent and posts rental properties on Facebook Marketplace. They offer attractive deals and claim there are multiple interested parties in line. To secure the property, they ask for a payment of one month's advance rent and one month's deposit, promising to cut the queue. They provide seemingly authentic legal documents, including proof of identity. Unfortunately, I lost 6000 SGD in this scam.
