Craigslist scam watch: phony rental agent

Last month I posted about “Libra” a Florida woman arrested for re-posting Craigslist ads and claiming she was the agent for the house and getting interested parties to fork over a deposit that she never intended to honor.

Now comes this Sacramento area scam where a home-owner stopped by their house which they had up for sale and found squatters who claimed they had paid an “agent” $1,450 to rent the house.  The owners are allowing the squatters to stay until Feb. 15th.   The police couldn’t say if this scam was related to earlier one involving another property but that they were investigating.
