Fort Collins Police Services have stepped up to help a family that was left homeless after falling into a home rental scam. Don't let it happen to you, too.

The Fort Collins housing market is rough, especially for renters. When you find a place to live for the right price, you jump on it fast. With a lot of rental searches and transactions happening online, it's easy to be lured into a scam, just as one family did, only to be left without a place to live.

CBS4 reports:

Fort Collins Police went above and beyond and set up a GoFundMe page for the family, and you can help, too. And, use extra caution when looking for a place to live this summer.
