If an advertiser tries to make you pay your first month’s rent outside HousingAnywhere, please contact us and report the user. It could be a potential scam. Do not further contact the advertiser and do not make any payments to them.
If you make a booking outside the platform, we cannot offer any safety guarantees or refunds. You can continue paying the advertiser directly after paying your first month's rent on HousingAnywhere.
Alternatively, you can ask your landlord to send you Payment Requests within the HousingAnywhere chat to ensure safe payments. Learn more about our secure payment service.
