The Bethel Police Department has recently received numerous complaints about rental property scams in which a person poses as a property owner and requests security deposits or other rental related expenses be paid to a Bitcoin account or other similar transaction. While a property may be legitimately available for rent, Bethel Police say the scammers copy the listings to other websites such as Facebook Marketplace, and replace the contact information with their own.  Police recommend that people refrain from sending any payments related to rental properties to anonymous persons.
