Hi, I was doing a backlink report for my website when I noticed that I had a CL backlink. I don't remember posting one so when I checked it I saw my apartment listed on there with someone else's email (Kensjob00@gmail.com). I googled the email and saw that there were other apartments under his name. So then I googled the title of the apartment and I saw that they were all homeaway apartments. I honestly do not have the energy to call all the homeaway owners to tell them that their apartments are under siege by a scammer. So, I'm hoping that they come here on the community boards and check this message to see that their apartment is part of this scam. I saw apartments from St. Augustine, FL a few from NY, ect. Below are the titles of the apartments from this person's name.

I cannot believe the nerve. I called the scammer about my apartment and she gave me a paypal address to send the payment to, What I can't understand is why is she using a paypal account if I can dispute her charge and later on get my money back once I realize that there is no apartment?
If you don't feel upto contacting all the other owners, how about sending a scam report to CL at http://sfbay.craigslist.org/cgi-bin/emailForm.cgi

We just found our cottage advertised on Craigslist. Thank goodness a former renter alerted us!
Folks, we will never be free of scammers. We have to be vigilant and watch our own Craigslist.
The "rental agent" was listed as sXXXXXXXg1980@yahoo.com When we placed this address in yahoo it showed hundreds of advertisements all over the States.
Would you mind explaining how to check for a backlink on your website? I would like to do this as well.
I just went to our local Craigslist and checked out vacation rentals for our town which is in California. I plugged in our town so I wouldn't have to wade though all the other towns in the area.
There among the ads was an ad of mine copied (cut and pasted) straight from VRBO with my complete ad and photos. The only thing that was changed was how to contact me through VRBO. This scammer's yahoo address is at the bottom. All I can hope is that people are wary of Craigslist vacation rentals. I have no idea if any one has shown up at our vacation rental expecting to get in.
Fake CL ads should be reported at http://sfbay.craigslist.org/cgi-bin/emailForm.cgi so the fake ad will be shot down, and any ads associated with the same email address.
