Craigs List Rental Scam

A company scamming potential renters was recently busted in the NY area. The company posted bogus "to good to be true" rental advertisements. They often copied rental listings from legitimate sites, so the properties were actually for rent....... just not from this company. When applicants inquired, they were charged fees including $200 for credit checks that were never processed.

I have found Craig's List to be a very effective location on the web to advertise. The economics associated with Craig's List are truly disruptive in the classified advertising space. It would be a shame to see the incredibly effective Craig's List suffer from unscrupulous operators like this NY company.

If you are looking for an annual rental, drop us a note and we can point you in the right direction.
