yourself. i asked how do people still fall for this? it's still on the news. they fall for it because renters are desperate for a place to live and the scammers are good at their job. grace backed me up on this. i came close to being involve in a scam like this she writes. the property was listed on zillow. a legit platform makes the scam look legit. gloria said that happened to my daughter and she lives in florida. >> well, social media scrams are including rental scams and a number of financial crimes. you know, the bottom line is that you can't really trust anything you see online unless you can back it up with somebody in person verifying the details. >> reporter: michelle is a property owner. i had my rental ad used by someone trying the same thing. beware of any ad asking for wired money. meet the owner or owners' agent,
ask for proof. so here are the red flags. the landlord is out of town. the price is too low. you must pay in cash or wire the money. here is how to protech yourself. look up the property owner's name on the website block shopp shopper.com and check the i.d. never wire money. don't pay with cash. do pay by check. it doesn't offer much protection but at least it can be stopped if a problem comes up quickly enough. san mateo district attorney steven wag staff says checking on a landlord isn't easy in the state of california. >> it's hard. when we're dealing with landlords, they aren't regulated by the state of california. that's different. contractors, cosmetology, people are regulated and there are checks you can do online. doesn't exist in the state of california. >> if you get taken, report the crime to local authorities. >> the key is very quickly after you realize that you have been
defrauded is to call your local police department or your local d.a.'s office. i have and almost every d.a.'s office has a real estate fraud unit that looks into these things but the key is to move with speed and not sit there wondering what to do next. >> if you have doubt entirely online, there is likely not much authorities can do. so keep that in mind. now here is a bottom line, there is no full proof way to make sure you're not ripped off when you're renting a unit. the more questions you ask and the slower you go, the less likely you are to be ripped off. now i want to hear from you. my hot line is up monday through friday 10:00 to 2:00. you can also reach me on my facebook page and abc7news.com. >> excellent. >> knowing the red flags is helpful, michael. >> thanks. let's move onto the weather forecast. good looking week. summer arrives later this week. >> yeah, we got micro climates going on. >> we do, indeed especially now
