SCAM ALERT: Investigation into Real Estate Scam
ESCAMBIA COUNTY -- The Escambia County sheriff's office is investigating a real estate scam.
Eric Gleaton Realty says some of their listing are being re-posted on Craigslist, Zillow, and Trulia.
The postings claim the owner is trying to sell property fast, and will only respond to e-mail and texts.
They then have potential tenants wire money and promise to mail them the keys to the place but never do.
The sheriff's office is not working these cases because the person responsible most likely doesn't live in the area.
But they're asking people to be cautious and not to wire money to anyone they don't know.
