Rental Scam: Ashburn VA

The complainant reported that she sent a $1350 deposit to a “property manager” for a rental she saw advertised online. The property manager then informed her that she could have a discounted monthly rent if she sent additional funds. The complainant refused, realizing this was likely a scam. Upon refusing, she was told the lease was being canceled and that she would receive a partial refund of her deposit. No refund was received, and the complainant located the actual property owner, who informed her that the property had not been listed for rent and there was no property manager.
