Consumers beware of Property Rental Scam. A local property management company lists their properties on Craigslist. They found there has been a scammer utilizing their photos and information and posting the properties as their own.
People are emailing this person about possibly renting and the scammer is asking for a money gram to be sent to him as the deposit.
There has also been a listing for this particular phone number on a website reporting scams. There have been variations of this type of scam reported before but with different numbers, emails and addresses.
