The Clarksville Police Department is warning residents that certain property rental advertisements are a scam.
Police say a local property management company realized a scammer has been using the business' photos and information, and listing the stolen information on Craigslist as their own.
The scammer asks potential home buyers to send money as a deposit. Police say the scammer uses the email firstname.lastname@example.org and the phone number (832) 510-4628.
According to police, that phone number has been listed on scam-reporting website.
Clarksville Police is reminding residents to be diligent when searching home listings, and to remember that phone numbers and email addresses can be falsified.
