I would point out that Kris was vigilant in monitoring his propertyand caught this situation and was not hurt. I would say he gets an A+ for risk management and risk mitigation and will probably, therefore, do very well with his business.
attempt to move in, but I have had 1)multiple posts created at different prices, 2)someone create a phishing ad acting as though they were a missionary, and my personalfavorite 3) an ad stating that the owner was leaving the country on a job assignment and had to get a tenant immediately. First one to the door with $500 could rent. If you change the code on it daily if not every two to three days this incident may very well had been avoided. Hopefully in the future you will do so.
Real estate is all aboutrisk management taking the right risks and not assuming the wrong risks. It's not about avoiding risk entirely. In many areas, allowing people unescorted access to a house works most of the time, in other areas it is stupid. But escorting in areas with a low probability of trouble is a waste of time. How do you know what the situation is?
Its very unfortunate this happened on your property and to the victims that are out of $1400 as well as a place to stay. I've come across a few of those posts on CL and backpage. The poster only gives out the intersectand gives a pissed poor reason for not giving out the address until they receive any monies. Others will claim to be out of the country and will have to have the monies sent to them first before you even get to see the property. Such a shame people fall for these (even as a non real estate professional, one should know better). Craigslist has a disclosure / warning about wiring monies scamsand so forth to all who visit the website, smh.
move in. Could have been a disaster. They said they wired $1400 to a man in ohio and they had a fake lease on MY HOUSE. anybody else got a craigslist nightmare.
to Sender."Turns out the person who established the account made many calls to apenitentiary in another state. The cell phone company representative told me this type of thing is not too uncommon.
So I had one of my rentals on craigslist with a lockbox on the front door. I've been using lock boxes for 10 years. I had a rental on the market for a few weeks giving out the code to people to look inside. Yesterday I went to the house and there were clothes and boxes inside the house. A few Air Max Pink 90 hours later 2 people showed up with a uhaul truck full ready to move in. Could have been a disaster.

I've run into two families that have fallen for this scam. Both were on limited fixed incomes and seemed pretty up and up, though obviously vulnerable. It was an extra shame for the one, as the head of household was a veteran with a clear learning disability caring for an elderly dependent father. Both were out the money they put down for the month and were homeless until the next, as they had both moved up to the area from their rentals in the bay area.

First of all, tsk tsk to everyone who suggests Kris should not allow people to visit his rentals unattended.
Thanks for sharing.
It wasn't CraigsList, but it was a scam. One of our rental houses was vacant and someone started usingthe address for establishing a cell phone account. While we were working on the house, we noticed the cell phone company bills in the mail box. We called the cell phone company and reported it and marked the envelope "Return Air Max 90 Yeezy 2
I guess I won't now.
Craigslist Scam finally got me good
What the hell?
I was also considering doing the same with the lock box code.
Never crossed my mind that some people could be so gullible.
