Scam artists are taking advantage of Las Vegas's high number of foreclosures.  They pretend to be landlords, then rent out the property - which doesn't belong to them.  How can you guard against this happening?  What safeguards are in place?  And how can victims find recourse and get their money back?  The Metropolitan Police Department and an attorney shed light on the situation.
