【警惕】警方提醒:小心卡城租房騙局

Patrick Lawrence Miller 是一位有過多次前科的“租房騙子”, 曾在去年一月份犯下多宗詐騙案。最近他又開始犯案了。

 

他究竟是怎麼犯案的呢? 簡單的說就是騙押金的。

 

一位名叫Alaina Parkes的年輕女孩去年十二月從維多利亞搬來了卡尔加里。她理所當然的在Kijiji上面登了一則找房廣告,想租一間允許養寵物的房子。騙子Miller看準了目標,向她發起了看似非常誠懇的邀請,說自己的女友在西南的Wildwood社區有棟房子非常適合她來住。Alaina滿懷欣喜的去參觀了那棟房子,對Miller的熱情招待也非常滿意。於是便按要求給了$1500 的現金作為押金。 誰知在入駐當天Miller聲稱“緊急裝修”,以致兩個月後都沒能搬進去住。後來發現,原來Parkes只是十多位其他受害者中的一個。大家的押金都被騙了! 出了這種事情雖然可以告他,但他一無所有根本也沒錢陪給你。免費進去吃吃牢飯人家也並不抗拒。不論怎樣,押金被騙十有八九會被用來賭錢或購買毒品,不用多久就一分不剩了。

 

經濟犯罪科的Martin West說:租金詐騙已經成為每天都發生的事情。幾乎每個禮拜都會接到許多類似的舉報。騙子們尤其喜歡把有寵物或有殘疾障礙的租客鎖定為目標。警察叔叔們告誡大家,租房要小心。押金應該給支票,最好不要給現金。決定租前最好先向隔壁鄰居打聽打聽狀況,衡量一下是不是有被騙的風險。
