It has become clear that scammers are posting fraudulent ads on CL with pictures from Real Estate ads they copy and paste. They use bogus contracts to lure folks into sending deposits via PayPal, Zell, cash, and bank transfer. No checks so they have no trail.
They use various names, no full contact info, or references, and try and act legitimate. They avoid talking on the phone.
BEWARE OF SCAMMERS FOR VACATION RENTALS!
