Sorry to tell you Jessica but you got scammed. I am the current legal owner and purchased the house on 11/30/2010. It currently is not, nor was it ever legally listed for rent. You should contact the police if you have not already.

I agree, contact your local police if you think you have been a part of a scam. I am a rental agent for a home in Falmouth and have had someone scam my listing NUMEROUS times on Craigslist. They claim to be the owner when you email them and have you send information and a deposit to rent the home, but the entire thing is a scam.

Good luck!

In order to find the owner, you can check local public records department, ask a neighbor(s) or ask any local agent--if you were scammed, do contact the authorities.

I work in the Shrewsbury area. Give me the address and I can look up the deed of the house.

There are a huge number of scams out there. Sounds as if you may be a victim.

Contact your local police.

Good luck.
