The Olive Branch Police Department is warning people about some scammers who are targeting people on Craigslist.
Here’s the information from the OBPD’s Facebook page:
Beware! Be careful if you go to rent a house! We are hearing that a couple of people in OB have been scammed. Victims answer an ad on Craigs List and meet someone at a vacant home to rent it. The person the victim meets has keys to the house. The victim pays $1700 cash for rent and deposit and moves in, but then finds ...out the next day that the person they met does not own the home. Then the victim has to move out.
