Our office has recently received several calls from renters who saw bogus ads for our bank-owned real estate listings on craigslist. As a result, we wanted to be proactive in keeping our community safe from these scams by posting bright yellow signs at some of our properties showing that they are NOT for rent. We are also proactively monitoring craigslist for all of our listings to ensure they are not listed. If we find them, they are immediately flagged for removal as fraudulent.
