Scam Alert – Fraudsters Claiming to work with “Colliers”
It has come to our attention that there are scammers falsely suggesting they are working with Colliers to rent out apartments in various cities in Canada.
They post an ad on an online site like rentals.ca, and when interested people ask for more information they are asked to send through a deposit before viewing the apartment.
We are aware of the scam and have reported this to the authorities.
Colliers will never ask for a deposit to be paid before an opportunity to view a property.
If you are a victim of this scam, we encourage you to notify your local authorities immediately and report it to the Canadian Government’s Anti Fraud Centre https://antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/report-signalez-eng.htm#a1a
We also recommend you call our direct line should you wish to verify the authenticity of any correspondence you’ve had with parties purporting to represent or be working with Colliers.
