Properties are being listed on Craigslist unbeknownst to owners. Three local homeowners (who have their homes listed for sale) have notified us this morning that they have been targeted in an internet scam. The internet has listed these three homes on Craigslist for r ent at ridiculously low prices, and potential renters h ave shown up to look at the properties. The homeowners are away for the winter season but were notified by watchful neighbors.
If your home is for sale, or if your neighbors are away for the winter, please google your address and keep a watchful eye on the home for unusual activity. If you are looking for a home to rent, please u use a reputable realtor and verify that you are actually dealing with the property owner before sending money. If something is suspicious, please notify Troop K at (860)465-5400. Please don’t be a victim!
