Protecting our users' safety and ensuring that they do not fall victim to scams is one of Housing Anywhere's priorities. This is why, until a booking has been made, it is not permitted to share contact information such as email address, phone number, Skype name, Facebook link, etc.
Our system can detect these details, and will hide them automatically. If you have done this and gotten a warning message, do not worry! Simply do not send any more contact information, and keep all of the conversation on Housing Anywhere until the booking has been made. You will then receive the email address and phone number of the advertiser once it is confirmed.
Scammers often try to lure users off the platform to convince them to send the payments to them directly. By keeping all of the communication and payments on Housing Anywhere, we can offer our secure payment system that ensures that the payment is safe until the tenant has moved in.
