Craigslist Real Estate Scams

It all started in our Customer Service Department with: "I received a call and made a ticket for [company name removed]. Regarding one of their listings showing up on under real estate rentals."

Now this home was certainly not for rent, it was for sale. The best part is that the listing on Craigslist had the agent contact information and even their photo!

It was a scam.

Needless to say, there are various real estate scams happening on Craigslist and this is something that everyone should be aware of. As can be seen from above, these scams have even hit some of our customers around the country.

Please be aware that Delta never sends your listing data anywhere without your permission. We are not sending your listing to Craigslist (although we may like to, and that is a whole other conversation!).
