Yet Another Craigslist Rental Scam

Received another email from someone asking about a Santa Maria home that’s on the MLS but advertised on Craigslist as a rental.  The scammers are not letting up!

You can pretty much bet that a home listed on the MLS won’t be advertised as a Craigslist as a rental. If you know of anyone that is looking for a rental, tell them to Google the address of the place they are looking to rent. If the search results show the property is for sale, it’s probably a scam from someone hoping to receive deposit and first/last month’s rent money for a property they don’t own.
