Police Warn Public About Craigslist Rental Scam
The Hawai’i Police Department is warning the public about a Craigslist scam involving homes for rent.
Potential renters were asked by a person posing as the landlord to send money to Nigeria before receiving keys, saying they were out of country and living in Nigeria.
Police want to remind 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.
