I’ve gotten over a dozen calls and emails this morning about my beautiful view home rental advertised on Craigslist. Great, right? Except I have no rental listing available.
Someone, not in malice, erroneously put an ad from the CBBain website on Craigslist, with my contact information on it.
Obviously, we have seen ads places there with malicious intent, like that gal who placed the ad to come and take anything they wanted out of her aunt’s house. Or those who place rental ads, collect first, last and a deposit, on homes they don’t own, and do it a dozen times to a dozen different renters. Or the stupid and short-sighted landlords and agents who post fake, repetitive, or bait-and-switch adds over and over. This is tame and harmless compared to that. But annoying, nevertheless.
It serves as a reminder to check your links before posting anything online, don’t believe everything you read and “flag with care”.
