Several Vancouver Island mothers and their families are without homes after showing up at a house they rented only to discover they were all the victims of a sophisticated rental scam.
Melissa Hyland, a single mom, was looking for a new rental after she said her landlord gave her 30 days’ notice to vacate the home she had been renting for the last eight years.
When she found an ad for a home at 2845 Pickford St. in Colwood, she thought her wishes had finally been answered.
“When I found this place that would take boys – I’ve got boys, I’ve got a dog and myself – I was thrilled,” she said.
