Police warn about Craigslist rental scam


Hawaiʻi Island police are warning the public about a Craigslist scam that lists houses for rent.

A person posing as the landlord claimed to be out of the country living in Nigeria and asked potential renters to send a money order to Nigeria before receiving the keys.

Police advise the public not to make arrangements to rent property without confirming that the person offering the property for rent is the owner or authorized rental agent.
