(HUTCHINSON, Kan.) — “They could potentially have their identity stolen,” said Hutchinson realtor Shane Mog.
A recurring scam has hit Craigslist again. This one targets potential home renters. Realtors say they've seen the scam popping up more often recently. And it's as simple as “copy and paste” to perpetrate.
It was Realtor Shane Mog's ad alright, but he didn't put it on Craigslist. Someone else did, changing just a few words in the process.
“We got a call from an agent that wanted to know if my property on 19th street was for rent,” Mog said. “And I said, ‘Absolutely not! I'm 99% sure.”
