CRAIGSLIST: Beware of Paris & London apartment rental scams (x-post)

Jump to last reply

I've been searching for a Paris vacation rental and had been communicating with the person in several of these ads and they all turn out to be scams to try to get you to wire them money. Please be very careful when using Craigslist.

Here are some examples, both of these have been proven to be scams.

I was savvy enough not to fall for this because with just a little research I found out it was a fraud. I've reported this person to Craigslist, hopefully no one has fallen for it.

Here's an article written about this kind of scam by the Frugal Traveler from the New York Times:
