BEWARE OF SCAM TARGETING PEOPLE ADVERTISING RENTALS: Please be alert for email scams where the email is not specifically addressed to you and is from a correspondent who says s/he wants to rent something s/he doesn’t describe, at unspecified dates, sight unseen, and is eager to pay in advance. Particularly beware of advance payment by cashier checks and money orders as these frequently turn out to be stolen.
