Hi..I'm a listing agent and someone is scamming my listing as a rental. What do I do?

6242 Rockwell in Rockridge is my listing that is pending.  Someone is trying to use it as a rental and is trying to get money from unsuspecting renters.  What to do?

Unfortunately, this is pretty common. I've gotten a lot of calls and even from friends who sometimes see my listings being rented out on Craigslist.

Sorry to hear this.  The scammers are insidious. Open the rental listing, hover over "edit", chose "report problem" ----> rental scam.

Here's the FAQ on scams. with more detail.
