(Las Vegas, NV)  —  If you’re looking for a home to rent, take care to avoid becoming a victim of scammers. Metro Police say rental fraud has grown in the Vegas Valley, with crooks posing as landlords and renting empty homes they don’t own. Detectives say you should do your homework by checking a home’s ownership with the assessor’s office, and keeping an eye out for properties with broken windows, new locks, and requests for cash in advance. If you think a rental home may be a fraud, call police.
