People, remember that since NYC's real estate market is crazy, there are some unsavory types out there. The Post's Police Blotter reports that one renter paid $2,900 to man allegedly posing as a real estate broker in East Harlem. "Lawrence Paul, 49, showed the victim an apartment in a building on East 116th Street on June 27 and allegedly said a similar one on the fourth floor would soon be available, the sources said. The victim forked over cash and returned on the move-in date only to find the apartment occupied and no sign of Paul, the sources said." Paul was charged with grand larceny. Also, don't fall for the "give me the deposit, I'll send you keys later" scam.
