ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI)- Scammers are using Craigslist as a new tool to deceive innocent people on the internet regarding house rentals.
Chris Thetford of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) sat down with Dan this morning as he described this new scam.
The BBB advises consumers to be on the lookout for new Craigslist house rental scams after a man reported a thief copied his information from a for-sale listing of the man's home, placed a phony ad and attempted to least the property to an unsuspecting St. Louis woman.
