The issue in GetHuman-chirssmi's own words
possible fraud on craigslist listing for rental property.*$*****br-****ft-**** Bloomfield Ave, & Single & Family & Home,,,w*FREE W-D & (Roanoke, VA)*Listing date August **Reply by email: *****@***.com**Found listing for rental on craigslist giving address of property. Rode by to look at property before sending a reply from listing.**Email reply from this person had errors in spelling and did not make clear sense. "Yes my house is what you are looking for. They are looking for someone to rent their home as they have relocated after having surgery to live with their family to help them before their second surgery and to also help raise their kids. They listed the house for sale with a realtor but realized the real estate market is rebounding tremendously and keeping their property rather than selling it would be more rewarding for them. It will also work out well for the tenant and landlord not to go through a realtor because it saves a property manager fee and time, making the rent cheaper and affordable, plus a management company does not give any personal attention to the home. They are just a number in their management files." They also note that they don't have anyone to show the inside of the house but will send pictures of inside and outside with the address and application if I am still interested. *Red flag!!!! Have since learned that the person who lived there is married and has one child who is in college. Doesn't make sense to me. Where is her husband? and does she never plan on going back to her home to live? This is a nice established neighborhood and rent would surely be more than $***.**. Have also run across another rental listing, nice home, very questionable. I think I'll just stay off of craigslist. Unfortunate that some people can't be trusted. If it's too good to be true, it usually is! Thanks
