SCAM ALERT!!! Renters Beware Nationwide

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Redwood Realty

There is a scam occurring on Craigslist in which rental homes are being advertised as 'for sale' by individuals from foreign countries. They are requesting you send them the security deposit and fill out a form with your private information upon responding to their ads.  

 

If you really need a rental, please don't hesitate to contact me via phone or email and I will be glad to assist you - Or please make sure whatever the route you choose in finding your place, it is legit and you are working with a reputable/credible source.

Evidently consumers are overlooking the warning. We had two occurences this past weekend with relocation clients. We must continue to warn our prospective buyers. Thank you for your comment.
