Police warn of Craig's List scam

BANGOR Bangor police are warning citizens to be alert of a new scam that's been reported on Craig's List.

Officer Jason Stuart reported last week that a person was looking for apartments on Craig's List and found one so she replied to the ad. She received a call back from a number that later appeared to be from Nigeria and as she spoke to the man the price went from first and last month deposit needed, to just one month, then $200 dollars as quickly as she could. She did not make a commitment and called a friend that is a realtor. The friend told her that the house she was looking to rent was his and was listed through a reputable real estate company and that she was nearly scammed.

'From time to time we get complaints similar to this one. Please do not ever make transactions for apartments on the phone unless you are absolutely certain you know who you are dealing with,' said Sgt. Paul Edwards in the emailed release. 'This woman did the right thing by not wiring or charging money to a credit card as several red flags were observed while she spoke to the man from Nigeria. If you see these scams on any website, please report it to them.'
