This is just your typical article about the housing scams on craigslist and how one family almost fell for it in Beaverton, Oregon.
However the seller of the house did a pretty ingenious thing to prevent people from being scammed.
After taking a second look at the house in person, Sami noticed the house’s real owner had posted a sign out front reading, “private property: if you have seen this home on craigslist you are being scammed.”
Good thinking on the owner’s part. People don’t get scammed and he doesn’t have to break it to people that they have been scammed.
