Fraudulent Properties


#1

I paid a holding deposit towards a property, it turned out to be a scam. How can I get a refund?

Hi Hama,

Can you share some details, which agency was the one you dealt with?
We have some doubts about our agency, and I was just browsing to try to find some related information.

Thanks,

Krisztina

Hi,
I’ve just seen a property and enquired to “landlord” about it and apparently the landlord is an estate agency asking me for £200 admin fee. To who I could complain about this as it’s unfair to pay for something which is advertised as free.
The property I’m on about is 450867# a studio flat on Fruen Road, Feltham at £700 pcm rent.
Looking forward to your support.

Hey Gabriel, very sorry to hear this. This is not allowed on the platform so thanks for reporting.

If you go to the advert listing page and press ‘report listing’ (at the bottom of the right hand nav bar), then you can report exactly what happened to our team.
