Roseville police are warning of a renter scam on Craigslist.
Police said that a person seeking to rent a home in Roseville responded to a Craigslist posting for a house only to find out that the poster was an imposter. Initially interested, the prospective renter became suspicious because of demands sought by the supposed landlord.
The person who said they were renting out the home wanted the rent and a security deposit sent to her via Western Union before she would show the house.
The renter investigated and learned from the actual agent renting the home that the Craigslist poster neither owned the house nor had authority to rent the home.
