I have had * anonymous phone calls from people who have told me my condo I have listed on CL is being in the location of a scam. The name used as a supposedly renter is Alex Harvey who needs to sublet "MY" place in order to stay in Florida & help his sister who has cancer. He has posted my pictures, asks for *st & last months rent equaling $****, explains that he can not show the interior but any inquiries he gets can go look at exterior, write a check & mail to his sister's address in Fl. He then will send a lease & the key. I know, who would agree to such a request? But in March of ****, I received a call from * young girls that gave month's notice to present address, send the check to Fl., received a key & a lease & called me to ask when they could move in. My ph. * is on my listing. The address does exist, I own the condo & I did list it on Craig's List. When I explained what must have been happening (it was the first I had heard of it), needless to say, they were in tears. I was FURIOUS! I got another call for a gal who figured it must be a scam * weeks ago & then again tonight. I went to the police, they said they could only educate the community on these occurrences. I looked him up on Facebook & found an Alex Harvey in Kissimmee Fl. What can I or you do. I will go as far as contacting Kissimmee police. He can scam a dozen times a day. As far as my part in this, I am unaffected, I already have it rented & tenants. But, can we please get together & somehow "red flag" this scam or better yet, track him down & arrest him.*The address of my condo which is the address he is using (as well as my pictures is:* **** Terry Lane* So. Lake Tahoe, Ca. ******My name is:* Becky Foust* Thank you for your time. Please keep me updated or involved if necessary. I have unlisted my personal listing (thought that would avoid more illegal actions), but, a person just called me about it tonight. Apparently Alex Harvey is still live & active on your site.
