Zillow Scammer Alert
Posted Wednesday, March 12th 2014 @ 4am  by WOOD Radio News Team

For the first time, the trusted real estate website Zillow has been used to scam people who wanted to rent a home in Ottawa County.

Realtor Jeff Northouse told WOOD TV that a scammer ripped off the description of a house that Northouse had up for sale in Jenison and made it a rental.

Then a couple was robbed of a 14 hundred dollar downpayment.

The sheriff's department said taht was the first time Zillow has been compromised like that in Ottawa County although Grand Rapids had two similar cases last year.
