If you're looking for a new place to live, the Better Business Bureau is warning you about a new scam. Crooks are using Craigslist and other sites to post listings of homes that they have no connection to. The thieves are sometimes asking for extensive personal information on a phony application form.
BBB Investigator Bill Smith tells The Big Z other times all they are asking for is money, so you need to be cautious.

The BBB previously warned of a similar scheme two years ago. At that time, it appeared the scheme was limited to stealing personal information from applicants. In that case, a St. Louis victim supplied his Social Security number and financial information, but was not asked for money.
