Man denies posing as a landlord in a deposit scam

A man in Dundee has denied that he fraudulently pretended to be a landlord who asked for an up-front deposit from tenants to secure a property that he did not own.

Edward Laing, of Back Dykes, Auchtermuchty, rejects accusations that he falsely obtained more than £2,000 by claiming to be a landlord.

Lang allegedly told people that he was the landlord and that he was allowed to advertise and rent out a property on St Vincent Street, Broughty Ferry, Dundee, and was in a position to provide the occupancy rights once he had received payment.

The 36-year-old is accused of persuading four people to transfer him £450 between May 16 and June 23 last year which they believed was a deposit for the property.

Laing also denies convincing another rental applicant to pay a first month’s rent and deposit amounting to £950.

Laing will appear at Dundee Sheriff Court in August.
