Santa Barbara Craigslist Fraud

WARNING!

If you are looking for a vacation rental in Santa Barbara or Montecito you need to make sure you are not scammed.

Nearly every new listing for rent or for sale I have will get cloned by Internet con men usually located in Africa outside the jurisdiction of the local police or the FBI. They will clone our realtor home sites on legitimate real estate sites like Realtor.com, Zillow.com or trulia.com and then place their personal contact information within that listing. As fast as we can flag the Craigslist listing as fraudulent listings they will place them back on the web. If you see any listing that seems to good to be true or uses unusual names or suspicious rental circumstances please FLAG THEM FOR REMOVAL, you will be doing everyone a favor.

I never list my rentals or new listings of homes for sale on Craigslist because of the extreme high amount of fraud.

Please do not fall victim to these very talented professional con men.  NEVER, EVER, EVER wire money to hold a rental. If you are searching for home to rent or purchase in the Santa Barbara or Montecito area direct your web search to professional real estate sites such as Trulia.com or Realtor.com or call me for assistance.

We want you to enjoy your visit to Santa Barbara and Montecito. Please let us know how we can help.
