CUMBERLAND — Local real estate properties listed for sale through Realtors and posted with for sale signs are being targeted by scam artists who are then posting the properties on Facebook and Craig’s List as being for rent. Mark Manges, president of the Historic Highlands Association of Realtors, alerted the Times-News to the scam Wednesday. He also contacted the C3I Unit and was informed that the scam is Algeria-based and is a continuance of prior scams that have been attempted locally. “These scam artists take information from listings on the Internet and then they put it on Facebook and Craig’s List as properties that are for rent. They are not for rent and this is a scam to try to get victims to send them $140 to get the key to the property,” said Manges.
