Watch out! A scam pretending to be SwissCaution is in progress. The scammers are asking for the payment of an amount equivalent to your rental guarantee. As a reminder, the amount of the SwissCaution registration premium is always CHF 231 or CHF 150 for a young person under 26 years old. SwissCaution will always contact you with "" or "" e-mail addresses. If you receive messages from a different address: do not follow up. If you receive a suspicious message, do not hesitate to contact our Client Service at 0848 001 848 or by e-mail at
