Onerent Launches Scamlord.ai to Help Renters Spot and Avoid Rental Scams

PR News Wire | April 13, 2020


Rental scams are a billion-dollar problem in the US. We're calling the purveyors of these awful scam listings, 'Scamlords' to really highlight the danger of online scams. With our experience in the market, we've learned all the tricks Scamlords use. This is the first anti-rental scam tool we're launching to help educate renters and stop scammers,'' said Chuck Hattemer, Co-Founder and CMO of Onerent. Scamlord.ai is designed to help stop "scamlords" in their tracks. A user inputs information collected from the rental listing to verify if the listing is bogus or real. The AI verifies the details provided and determines the likelihood of a scam. Users then consider this information in deciding their next course of action with recommendations on what they can do. Scamlord.ai is a product of Onerent's learning experience in leasing over 8,000 homes and encountering thousands of fraudulent rental listings over the years.
