Rental house listing turned into scam on Craigslist

Rental house listing turned into scam on Craigslist

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) - A local man says his property rental listing was hijacked, put on Craiglist and turned into a serious scam.

Matt Joseph's realtor found his house in Dearborn for rent on Craigslist, but neither of them had put up the ad.

Instead, scammers found the home's information and posted it online. The posting asks those interested to wire a deposit and fill out a long application, from which the scammers could obtain enough personal information to steal your identity.
