Rental application, am I being scammed?

We have recruited Tenant Community Leaders across Canada to help provide a helpful & informative forum for verified tenants. This is a safe space for Tenants to seek help & communicate with one another in a mature & non-confrontational arena. Tenants contributors only. UPDATE: Due to requests this forum will be open to the general public so Tenants across Canada can read and learn their rights AND their responsibilities.

Rental application, am I being scammed?

#1 Unread post by computerking1991 » June 25th, 2013, 1:56 pm

I saw an ad for an apartment that was priced very nicely. It came with blinds, dishwasher and optional dining table.

The owners are a husband and wife who looked legit.

I told them I was interested so they asked me to fill out a form and email it back to them by tonight. The form asks for personal information. They want a SIN number, license plate number, bank account number, my drivers license number and my relatives addresses.

I understand the landlord wants employment and past landlord references. I don't know why they want my personal information.
