I've heard about these in the news, people looking to rent who don't do their homework and end up sending these people money, only to never receive the keys and lose all kinds of money. I emailed a person on craigslist the other day about a 2br duplex in North Park for $950, sounded too good to be true but I looked into it anyway, this is the email I received a couple of days later.
