EUGENE, Ore. — One man is facing theft charges after posting a rental scam online.
Eugene police say they started the investigation last week when two people tried to rent a property listed online.
Richard Prozinski told them to meet him at a business location, and they gave him cash for an initial payment. After that, they were unable to get ahold of him.
Police arrested the 51-year-old for theft.
Police say if anyone asks you to wire them money or requests a security deposit before you’ve signed a lease, it could be a scam.
