CraigsList Rental Scam!

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

DON’T put your home on Craig’s list

People from foreign countries are taking my information from my website and are posting it on Craig’s list. These people claim to be the owners of the property in the ad but they are not. In fact these scamers are out of the country so they are unable to show the home to the potential renter. I now have had 3 homes fall prey to this scam. Below is an example of their ad.

Here is an example taken from CRAIGSLIST

$1000 / 4br – This fabulous home was built in 2004. (New Bern, NC )
