It is all about making the absolute best subscriber experience possible.

Rentec Direct, maker of leading property management has made some minor adjustments to their software due to the recent uptick of unsavory individuals posting fraudulent property listings on their service as well as other services such as Zillow, Trulia, etc. These individuals post fake rental listings in hopes to tempt unsuspecting renters into applying and paying them money to reserve the property. Unfortunately many renters are so eager to get into a property that many of them fall for the scam. To help combat this behavior Rentec is instituting some new rules to prevent abuse. They will no longer automatically allow unverified users to post advertisements via Rentec to third party sites via their rental listing syndication service. For most people and in most cases Rentec can automatically verify the information of new subscribers; however, if they are for some reason unable to do so a notice on the marketing page will link to this article and require the following information via facsimile or email.
