Greenville SC Real Estate Scams MLS Listings on Craigslist

 

         Reports are still showing that the Real Estate Scams are still out there. Companies are taking listings from MLS and putting them on Craigslist for least option, or rent.  If your properties are listed in MLS check them on Craigslist to see if you are not part of this scam.

        Notifications Of These Scams:

        FTC toll free hotline: (877-382-4357)

        FTC online complaint form

       Canadian PhoneBusters hotline: 888-495-8501

       Competitiion Bureau Canada: 800-348-5358

       Internet Fraud Complaint Center

       Software Piracy (http://www.sila.net/piracy/report.asp)

       Non-emergency number for your local police department.

 

 

 These are some of the resources you can check.  If you do suspect that an item posted for sale on craigslist may be part of a scam, email the details to the abuse .org on craigslist. Put the ID number in the message.

 

    Trying to make money is one thing but preying on people and using them in these scams is another.

We can try to put an end to this nonsense.

Sum of his Discourse was to this Effect. That about Forty Years ago, certain Persons went up to Laputa, eiehtr upon Business or Diversion; and after five Months Continuance came back with a very little Smattering in Mathematicks, but full of Volatile Spirits acquired in that Airy Region. That these Persons upon their Return, began to dislike the Management of every Thing below; and fell into Schemes of putting all Arts, Sciences, Languages, and Mechanicks upon a new Foot. To this End they procured a Royal Patent for erecting an Academy of PROJECTORS in Lagado: And the Humour prevailed so strongly among the People, that there is not a Town of any Consequence in the Kingdom without such an Academy. In these Colleges, the Professors contrive new Rules and Methods of Agriculture and Building, and new Instruments and Tools for all Trades and Manufactures, whereby, as they undertake, one Man shall do the Work of Ten; a Palace may be built in a Week, of Materials so durable as to last for ever without repairing. All the Fruits of the Earth shall come to Maturity at whatever Season we think fit to chuse, and increase an Hundred Fold more than they do at present; with innumerable other happy Proposals. The only Inconvenience is, that none of these Projects are yet brought to Perfection; and in the mean time, the whole Country lies miserably waste, the Houses in Ruins, and the People without Food or Cloaths. By all which, instead of being discouraged, they are Fifty Times more violently bent upon prosecuting their Schemes, driven equally on by Hope and Despair: That, as for himself, being not of an enterprizing Spirit, he was content to go on in the old Forms; to live in the Houses his Ancestors had built, and act as they did in every Part of Life without Innovation. That, some few other Persons of Quality and Gentry had done the same; but were looked on with an eye of Contempt and ill Will, as enemies to Art, Ignorant, and ill Commonwealthmen, preferring their own Ease and Sloth before the general Improvement of their Country.
