The warning comes after Suffolk Police became aware of two rental scams in Medford in March 2023.

On March 12, a man hung up a flyer advertising Medford homes for rent at Laundry Kingdom on Medford Avenue, police said.

Two potential renters responded to the ad and were later met by a woman who claimed to be a real estate agent.

Both victims gave the woman a cash deposit in exchange for keys, but the keys did not work at the home on Sipp Avenue in Medford.

On Friday, May 26, investigators released photos of a suspect and a vehicle believed to be involved in the scam.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Suffolk County Crime Stoppers Online or call 1-800-220-TIPS.
