Watch out for scammers!
Although most of the room posters are legitimate, always be weary for scammers. It is virtually impossible to keep scammers out 100%. Scammers can be identified based on the following:
- The room poster is currently situated in a foreign country.
- The poster asks for a deposit to secure the room before you’re able to view it; possibly a couple of months rent.
- They require you to make a deposit through Western Union, Moneygram or Airbnb. Beware of those who request rent to be paid through an anonymous money transfer provider.
- The scammer asks that you continue your conversation through Skype or email instead of Kamernet.nl.
- The scammer doesn’t give you clear answers to your question.
