Beware of Craigslist Rental Scams

There are various different Craigslist rental scams, but the one rental scam I talk about in this video is where someone posts on Craigslist a home for rent that they do not own.

They typically will list the property at a rent rate FAR below the market rate.

When you email them, they will typically reply with a long drawn out email about how they are out of town, and will be for the long term, and that they are looking for a “responsible” person to rent their home to.

These type of Craigslist rental scams are common, so I put together this video to make you aware of this type of rental fraud.

It’s sad that rental scams on Craigslist exist. I feel that people have enough things to worry about as it is, now you have property scams to shuffle through.

How to Spot Craigslist Rental Scams

  • A rental rate WAY BELOW market rate.
  • Property description has many grammatical and spelling errors.
  • Supposed property owner’s reply email contains a long drawn out story.
  • Supposed property owner mentions they are currently out of state for a long period of time.
  • Supposed property owner claims to have the keys and document with them out of state.
  • Supposed property owner wants you to complete an application before seeing the property.
