No doubt Craigslist is one of the most popular online sites to find whatever you are looking for all over the globe. In fact the list is an important part for some in marketing Real Estate Listings. While Craigslist has been marred with some troubles in South Carolina targeted by attorney general Henry McMaster the latest scam that is sweeping into the real estate postings is cause for much alarm to REALTORS®. The trouble with shopping for a rental property on Craigs List is that it could seperate consumers farther from their hard earned money if they are not careful.
The properties that are innocently being used for the rental scam are listed for sale in South Carolina and the FBI is warning users of Craigslist to use caution and report any information. Better yet if you are in need of finding property contact a REALTOR® to assist you. Rest assured you will find a willing partner in helping you fill your real estate needs in the local market without cause for concern, something Craigslist will never deliver.
