Being stabbed in the back by Craigslist AGAIN!! You can now add me to the list of Realtors that have been unjustly raked over the coals by another scam on Craigslist.
My first bit of advice... CONSUMERS STAY AWAY!
I have a 4 bedroom Colonial for rent in Middletown CT. This was just posted the other day on Realtor.com. Yesterday, I received a call at the office from a possible customer wishing to take a look at this rental. A red flag went up in my mind at this point. Why did they call the office?? My cell phone number is what is listed in the MLS. Hmm.
I called this gentlemen back (let's call him Steve, this is not his real name), Steve said he saw this listing on Craigslist. He was looking to move closer to Middletown CT (if not in Middletown), and he was willing to pay more than he is right now. The $1,100 for this 4 bedroom residential home is in his price range. The fact that they also accept pets made his day.
I stopped him right there. The information he has is INACCURATE. The price of this home is $1,800, not $1,100 and pets are NOT allowed.
He was upset and rightfully so, he told me that the advertising states differently and I should uphold that information. I explained that I did NOT post anything to Craigslist, and don't anymore, just for this reason.
Last year I had a home rental in Cromwell, CT with pictures from a property in Texas. STAY AWAY FROM CRAIGSLIST, or don't assume the information you are reading is correct.
I've tried to report this, but to no avail. So I am letting everyone here on ActiveRain, and the general public, do NOT believe what is written by firstname.lastname@example.org for posting ID 2778245477. They are advertising the wrong information from what is on Realtor.com and/or CTMLS.MLXchange .
