Rental Scams on Craigslist Running Rampant

Real estate rental scams are becoming more prevalent in our nation. Though well-off Americans are targeted, the scammers don’t all come from the United States. Many are from the UK and Nigeria, and many are only 13 or 14 years old. These teens target Americans as being foolish and careless with their money, and therefore infer they are easy targets. And more often than not, Americans prove them right. Wire transfers and giving valuable information like credit card or social security card numbers online can be one of the most dangerous things a person can do. Not only is money being stolen daily from many individuals looking to rent or buy houses online, identities are also stolen. The only way to ensure safety when looking to buy or rent is to work through a reputable agency or Realtor.
