Craigslist scam: fake pastor renting property

February 25, 2009

This is a variation of the fake rental agent scam except this time they are pretending to be a man of the clothe.  The Winnipeg police are warning people that a man using the last name of Strampher using Craigslists and other such sites claims that he is renting out property while he is away on a religious retreat.  He asks potential tenants to fill out an application and then wire money for a damage deposit.
