DM me for more details and pics!  Can’t show unit in-person due to me being out of the area and worried about COVID.  If you send deposit and 1st month’s rent via Zelle or Venmo I will mail keys to you.

Does it sound too good to be true?  It probably is!

Please be cautious on your housing search.  Berkeley Housing scams have been a problem in past years but have been exceptionally prevalent due to COVID and searching for housing from abroad.

We are seeing most of these scams on Craigslist and the Facebook group UC Berkeley Off-Campus Housing.  Vague posts on FB asking you to “DM me for details” or “screenshot this post via DM” are red flags.

The scammer won’t be able to show you the unit due to COVID and will need you to use Zelle or Venmo to send them the deposit funds to reserve the unit.

The scammers promise a “guarantee” that if you don’t like the unit they will refund your full security deposit during the first week of moving in.

Our building at 2534 Benvenue Ave is at zero vacancy and has been targeted this year and in past years for scams.  There is no such floor as ‘A2’ there and we do not rent any furnished, month-to-month units.
