Protecting our users' safety and ensuring that they do not fall victim to scams is HousingAnywhere's priority. Until a booking is confirmed, you can't share contact information such as email addresses, phone numbers, Skype names, Facebook links, etc.

Our system can detect these details and will hide them automatically. If you have done this and received a warning message, don't worry. Do not send any more contact information, and keep all the conversations on HousingAnywhere until the booking has been made. Once the booking is confirmed, you will receive the advertiser's email address and phone number.

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 HousingAnywhere, we can offer our secure payment system that ensures that the payment is safe until the tenant has moved in.
