ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – If you’re looking for a new apartment, authorities say to be careful of scammers out there.
The state’s attorney general says there’s been a rise in reports of Craigslist rental scams all around New Mexico. They say when someone is looking to rent on Craigslist, the so-called “landlord” will not be available to show the property, but promises a great deal if the person just sends money to them out of state or out of the country. Then the money is gone for good.
The A.G.’s office says college students, working professionals and families have all been targeted.
