Unfortunately, on rare occasions, people create a fake HousingAnywhere email address to try to steal personal information or to make users pay outside of HousingAnywhere. This practice is called phishing, and you can find more information here.

If you receive an email asking you to send a payment outside of HousingAnywhere, don't send it. It is not us. Mark the email as spam and let us know as soon as possible.

How to recognise fraudulent emails

  • Fraudulent emails often contain the HousingAnywhere logo and the layout of our payment or reservation confirmation message.

  • You may notice some spacing and spelling mistakes.

  • The logo may be of low resolution or terrible quality.

  • The email doesn't contain a link to HousingAnywhere.

We will never ask you to pay or divulge your personal information outside of HousingAnywhere.

Our official email is support@housinganywhere.com. If you receive emails from a different address, please report them to us.

Some examples of fake email addresses are:

If you receive an email and are unsure if it's real, forward it to support@housinganywhere.com. We will get back to you immediately.
