This is what a Craigslist SCAM Ad Looks Like

*  The rent is HALF of what it SHOULD BE for the Home

*  Scammers almost ALWAYS use SFRs as bait

*  The description is very GENERIC

*  The e-mail is a NAME w/# in it so the SCAMMERS can keep track of the AD they are SCAMMING From

Fabulous living space & beautifully landscaped, fenced yard. You'll love the spacious, open family room/eat in kitchen space, the elegant master suite, & the super outdoor space of this home. 4 BR/3 BA with a newly finished rec room on walk out terrace level. Lots of designer touches throughout this home including crown molding, chair rails, wood floors,& custom colors. So much cabinet & counter space in kitchen too.

Craigslist is just a field of scammers!   I used to put some of my listings on there, but after obscene phone calls, I stopped.   It is not worth that!
