Dealing With Fraud

The MUSC Off-Campus Housing website is intended to assist people in advertising and acquiring housing in the Charleston area. Be aware that some people may use the information included on this site for fraudulent purposes.

Please be on the look out for an email in which the sender represents him/herself as an international seeking housing. The person offers to send funds in the form of a check or money order, and will then request that you cash the check or money order and return to him/her any remaining balance. For more information, please visit the INTERPOL website (The International Criminal Police Organization) located below.
