AMARILLO -- Officials are warning about a rental scam.

They say scammers are stealing information off the internet to make their own website.

When you search for a place to rent, they're asking you to send the deposit and first month's rent. They're even asking people to submit an application with their social security number.

Officials say always ask to see the property first.

If you feel you're being scammed, call police.
