Craigslist Scam Hits San Mateo

San Mateo Renters Beware

Tweeters have been tweeting.  Also heard about it happening in San Francisco. But now it hit San Mateo.

Scammers are finding vacant houses on craigslist, changing the locks and renting them to unsuspecting people.

Unfortunate victims pay rent and security, then move in to find out they have to move right back out because they rented from a scammer instead of the actual home owner.  Where’s their money?  Gone.  By the time the scam is discovered their money is long gone.

Craigslist is still the best source for a lot of things, including renting a house in San Mateo, but beware!
