If you replied to this Cedar Lane house for rent, it’s a scam! They have been reported. I live in Bemidji and own this house. It is for sale, but not for rent. This scammer company/person “Darin,” likely from abroad, stole my info & photos from Zillow and posted it for rent here (post is now gone). They put the rent at $700, way less than the house would rent for if it were a rental, which it isn’t. DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY! And always insist on a local phone number and a conversation/ meeting with the owner or manager before renting anything, anywhere.
In an effort to seem credible and legitimate, the scammer, “Darin,” claims to be part of “Warriors Ascent,” an apparently legit organization. He uses the email beautyhome1212 ,a gmail.com account which I post here in hopes others around the craigslist world will find out he’s a scammer when they Google it.
If you see a place, like this, that seems way too cheap to be true, beware! Deals are possible, yes, but never blindly send money without seeing the place and meeting and/or talking to someone to verify it’s a real offering.
If you were scammed, please report it to the police. And stop payment on any check or other instrument you may have used to transfer money to them.
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers
