Question Details

April, Renter in Dana Point, CA

After responding to the ad on Craiglist, the "owner" responded by email stating she was doing missionary work overseas.

Asked by April, Dana Point, CA Thu Apr 19, 2012

I just wanted to let the owner know there is a scam being played out on their property. I would hate to have retaliation effect them if they are not involved. They are asking for rent which is half the price on Trulia. I also don't want someone to fall for this.

Call the cops and report it. That's a very, very common scam. Craigslist even posts warnings about it on its site. Let the cops handle it.
