Craigslist SCAM update - Please share

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX United

(Update) I received a call this mornig from an individual that was searching for a rental in the Portland, OR area.  Because of this Blog post and those that may have shared (thank you), the consumer found out early that the Craigslist ad was a scam and did not wire funds.

This is working so please share. 


website scam scam and 

email address scam scam

There is a scammer out there using Craigslist and my identity to scam people into wiring money for rentals. They have borrowed my name, photo and California real estate license number to convince people that they are legitimate.

Please share this scam information.

scam scam is a bogus website using my identity and I have multiple calls to confirm the craigslist add, one of the individuals had already wired money to the scammer. (Update)For the moment I have had the website taken down so please notify me if it becomes active again.  Must stop these scammers from tricking consumers into wiring funds in advance.

One of the scam email addresses that they are using is scam steve.hall.housingrentals@hotmail.comscam


I have filed complaints with multiple agencies to no avail so please share so the scammer is exposed.

These buggers need to be 'beamed' to the SUN. I am so fed up with the criminals and it seemed to not be so prevalent before the internet took over our lives.
