Craigslist needs to stand up and be held accountable for all the scammers listing houses for rent/sale on their site. It's free to list so why not just steal someone's property and Craigslist allows this.

You need to do a simple few minutes of verification on properties being listed to make sure they're who they say they are. I have helped several sites do this, in fact I found one today on here and contacted the company that built the houses to let them know. New houses don't rent for $700 mth. That should be Craigslist first hint there's a problem with that ad.

People now a days can't afford to lose money this way and you make it too easy for the crooks to do this. Grow some cajones Craigslist! Great site but you have to take responsibility for what you're enabling people to do.

I have flagged several houses today and know at this point they won't do a thing about it. Come on guys it's not that hard to require ownership proof.

User's recommendation: If it sounds too good, then it's a scam!

Preferred solution: Deliver product or service ordered.

Craigslist Cons: Do not back up what people list.

They still should be held accountable to check these listings like the rest of the sites hosting rentals.

They don't have the staff or resources to police the hundreds of millions of ads that are placed with them on a monthly basis. People have to use common sense and do their own research.
