Sorry to hear that, and thanks for sharing. This happened to our listing on the Venice Canals.

We received a call from a really scared woman. I hope this stops happening.

Best,

Kristine

These scams have been going on for a long time, they seem to dissappear and the reappear without warning. Please report what you have directly to Trulia by clicking on the feedback link on teh right side of trulia home.

the 2 most common scams are trying to rent vacant listings for half of what they would rent for and having people wire money overseas. the other is offering top purchase with fake cashiers checks for more than the asking price and asking for teh balance be wired to them.
