Kentucky State Police warn of scam involving Craigslist

Investigators with the Richmond post of Kentucky State Police say they've received a report of a scam involving Craigslist.

Police say a woman told them she had been looking to rent a house on Craigslist, and had contacted one of the owners of a private home listed on the site.

Police say the owner requested $800 be sent by Western Union to an overseas location for a security deposit.

The woman got suspicious, and did not send any money. She then contacted Kentucky State Police.

Police say they encourage anyone to be hesitant when sending money to anyone they don't personally know.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Kentucky State Police at 859-623-2404 or 800-222-5555.
