I read your blog. I was just scammed concerning renting a house in Colorado. I send an email saying I was interested. Below is the response. I immediately knew it was bogus since my sister went through this, too, in PA. I looked up the address and it is for sale...not rent. I flagged their post on Craigs List but don't know how to report them,.From Scammer:
Thanks for your interest and inquiries about my house. Yes the house is still available for rent and we are looking for a responsible person/family to occupy and maintain the house now that we are not around.
