Short Term Rental Scams

The South Bay HOA has been alerted by a fellow homeowner that they were the target of a rental scam in the Orlando area. Please be vigilant of unwanted guests trying to enter you or your neighbors properties.

These scams operate by creating fake rental listings – potentially of high end homes – on craigslist and other social media platforms using past real estate photos and public information from the tax and property appraiser offices.

What You Can do:

  • Post signage by your front door stating your home is not and will never be a rental
  • File a complaint with the state attorney or the IC3
  • Save all surveillance footage in case of further issues
