Sheriff's Office Reports Online Rental Scam
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Deputies are warning the public about a potential scam involving rental properties online.

The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were contacted Wednesday from someone who said she saw one of her rental properties on Craigslist for a much lower rate than she had advertised on Zillow and VCI Classifieds. The ad also requested that interested parties fill out a form with personal information.

Deputies said the property owner was concerned that the scammer may be someone who is trying to get personal information to steal victims' identities.
