How do I report a rental scam?

Help the community by answering this question:


Did anybody lose money or was it discovered in time? I had a rental listing in MLS last year. Started getting odd calls about a rental price much lower. Turns out someone took all the info from my listing, and reposted on Craigslist about $300 lower with their number to call. They claimed to be a foreign owner. They even said so much as not to contact agent(me) because he would charge much higher. They asked renters to send them first month and deposit and they would mail keys. None did. When I discovered I called Orange County Sherriff and filed a report. I printed the ad on Craigslist and gave it to them. They took it but said they dont investigate if there is no victim who lost money. Too many to chase down.
