 I replied to a home posted on Craigslist about a 3 bd/ 1ba home located at 9810 McCrea Lane in Louisville, KY. I was told that I would receive the keys to the home after I made the deposit plus the 1st month's rent which was $1400. Unfortunately, that did not happened. Now, there is something wrong about not receiving the keys, and that I have to pay $545 to have the keys delivered to me. He did not have a problem texting and calling me about when I'm going to make a payment but soon as I ask him about the keys he does not want to respond to my text or answer the phone when I called. He said that the government has the keys, but I know without a doubt that he knew this before he posted the home on Craigslist.

Actually the whole setup is a widespread scam

AUTHOR: FloridaNative - ()

There is quite a bit of this going on the last few years. Scammers "create" a fake listing on craigslist by scaping the photos from legitmate listings on other websites. The scammer then posts the property for rent substituting another fake contact name and contact info. The properties that the scammer uses can be from anywhere. The address is real, their rental listing about it is fake. The scammer has nothing to do with the property - they don't have access or the right to rent or sell the property. Their whole point is to get you to send them money via Western Union or money gram or green dot card or any other untraceable way. The phones are throw aways and once they have enough deposit money from a bunch of people, the scammer moves on to scrape the next property's photos on another non-existant listing.

What each of these properties have in common is that the offer is "too good to be true". Also, the red flag is that you don't actually get inside the property, the scammer asks you to drive by first. Then, if you like it, he/she asks for money to be sent directly to them personally via western union or money gram or any untraceable method. The excuse the scammer made about the keys being with the government is a lie to keep you from discovering that you have been scammed too early so he can continue to work this particular home a little longer. You can bet your money is gone.

You can report it to the police, but because you sent the money via an untraceable method it is doubtful they will be able to catch the thief. It is a big problem now because this is being done across the country. Don't send money to anyone using these untraceable methods. Legitimate rentals are never rented this way. Good luck. I hope you do report it to the police.
