Q. in response to your article about rental deposit scams, there are also some being done via craigslist long distance. it could have happened to my daughter. she saw a listing for a townhouse for rent. the scammer had a good story as to why he was renting it and why he was from out of town. the price was too good to be true, so we decided to google the address and found out it was for sale.
