Police Warn of Rental Scam

Craiglist.org

(KLIX)- Twin Falls police are warning citizens of a new Craigslist scam. According to police scammers are targeting renters, landlords, and even homeowners. Police say homes in the city are being listed on Craigslist as rental properties when in fact they’re not available. In some cases scammers show vacant homes to unknowing renters. Police say the crooks gain access through unlocked doors or windows. Or show up as renters wanting to look at a place and then unlock a door or window. They then turn around and pretend to be the landlord. The hope is to get people to pay a deposit on the property. Police say there was one incident that happened when the home owners were away. If you come across a scam like this you’re asked to call police 735-4357. And landlords are asked to make sure all properties are secure after being viewed by a prospective tenant or buyer.
