Craigslist Scams on the Rise Again

Craigslist Scams on the Rise Again

While most of the country is staying home and healthy, it appears that scammers are ramping up their efforts to scam OBX vacationers and residents out of their hard earned money.

OBAR has seen a recent influx of calls regarding Craigslist scams–both long-term and rental.  It is always a good idea to check Craigslist regularly to see if a property that you manage or represent is being used for scamming purposes.  OBAR has created a guideline for reporting these scams which you may find HERE.

We encourage you to follow up on every facet of reporting.  If you discover that a property that you manage or represent is posted nefariously on Craigslist, please contact Communications & Marketing Director Leah Holmes directly at (252) 489-1480 or leah@outerbanksrealtors.com.
