Craigslist Scam Centers On Phony Leases For Local Properties


The Capital Area Association of Realtors is warning about an online scam in which people are being duped into paying for phony leases on local properties.

 

The scam is carried out on Craigslist… and usually involves getting people to send a check to a P.O. box for a lease on a vacant property.  Those properties are often listed for sale by a realtor… but the scammers claim that they’re taking it off the market and plan to lease it instead.  After receiving the check, the scammer then disappears with the money. 

 

The realtors’ group urges people to make sure they verify who they are dealing with and beware of sending money to distant locations for online property listings.
