Is this property a scam on craigslist?

Asked by Marcela, Mount Vernon, NY Mon Feb 2, 2009

This property on 2035 Central Park Ave #1B in Yonkers, NY is being listed as a rental on craigslist. I am afraid that it may be a scam. The owner/landlord's name in the rental listing is Joshua Livingston. Is this the real owner? My e-mail is Thanks

At what point will craigslist begin to act in a responsible manner. The scams continue unabated. Craigslist should be ashamed of itself. They act as if they have no ability to limit the frauds perpetrated on their site. The fact is craigslist has become a facilitator of frauds. I will no longer utilize craigslist until they exhibit some corporate responsibility. SHAME ON YOU CRAIGSLIST!

Hi Marcela,

I am the listing agent for this property and, yes, someone has copied my pictures and is running a rental scam on Craig's List!! These people operate from utside the US and there's really no way to stop them!!

Basically these people will try and get you to send them a certified check in England or something. They will tell you that they can show you the unit, and then will say, "Oh my brother can't make it but if you agree to take it without looking at it, we'll knock off $300 a month" or some such thing!

Don't send then ANYTHING!!

Hope this clears it up!
