Police investigating possible home rental scam attempt

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, KY (WAVE) – An Indiana man was recently the victim of a scam when he found his home posted for rent on Craigslist. Now Kentucky State Police are warning of a similar scam in the Bluegrass.

Troopers at the Richmond post say a supposed owner of a home requested that $800 dollars be sent by Western Union to an overseas location for a security deposit. No money was sent. The potential victim instead called state police.

Investigators remind everyone to be vigilant and not to send money to someone you don't know.
