Beware of Craig's ListI wanted everyone to be aware of what has been happening lately. I have had several calls from people finding and answering ads on Craig's List, especially rentals, DO NOT, send them any personal information by email or through the mail, most will also ask for your bank accounts, ssn's etc, and some also want you to send a deposit to hold the house.Most of these homes are listed with realtor's for sale and not rentals of so called owner's. Please drive by the property and check, or look on various websites to see. Also always meet the so called rental people in person, check them out first, check out the property first, then if you feel comfortable fill out a form, and then give a deposit, however only in Check form and please make copies for your files and proof, including any money orders, etc.Just be careful of who you deal with, I have had 3 calls from people that have seen my for sale signs and called.Be SafeApril 10 2012 - Staten Island1YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
