Here's a new one to us.
Wifey's daughter and hubby just put their refurbished casa on Zillow, for sale.
Someone went by and scoped it out and took pix of the outside and limited pix through the windows.
Then advertised it for rent at an excellent price. Just send $$ for applications with earnest money, and 1st and last etc, to a certain PO box somewhere in Texas. This was posted on Craigslist.
Luckily wifey's daughter was there doing last minute detailing work, when bunches of people started showing up to scope out the house. Wanting to look through the interior as they were told to on CL, on the 4th of July.
Wifey's daughter and hubby had already gotten a down payment, to sell the place.
Don't know how much the miscreant got sent to the PO box. The offer on CL apparently went off the list today.
Wifey's daughter's hubby is an IT for a big outfit, and cancelled the ad on CL.
And left a note on the front door of the nearly sold house, To that affect.
Hopefully, not too many people got burnt on that little scam, and the powers that be, can track down this low life.
Be aware out there folks.
