Be Aware of Local Real Estate Scams

Monday, March 21, 2016

Local realtor Cindy Koutnik reported that one of her real estate listings was the subject of a recent Craigslist scam. Three days after posting a residential listing for sale, the home appeared on a Craigslist ad for rent. The scammer was arranging to collect security deposits from the potential tenants. Always keep your guard up when responding to ads, especially when someone is asking for money.
