Yet another rental scam has surfaced on Craigslist Sarasota. An ad for a Siesta Key 3 bedroom 2 bath condo offers the rental for $230 per night.

Within a two week period, police in Sarasota received three complaints about rental scams advertised on Craigslist. The scammers are using legitimate listings for homes for sale, then taking the pictures and descriptions to advertise low rent homes changing the contact information. They usually make up a sob story about being out of the country and this is why they can’t meet with you face to face. They send an application to get your personal information, then a rental agreement. It may look legit, but it isn’t. They insist you must wire a deposit and first month’s rent to their account which cannot be traced. Once you wire the money to them you’ve become their latest victim. The keys they promise to send you never arrive and when you drive by the property, you’re likely to see a for sale sign. Don’t conduct business over the phone or online. If the owner won’t or can’t meet with you in person and if they can’t verify ownership, look for another place to rent. (Source: moneyinc.com)
