Homeowner surprised to find his house for rent on Craigslist

November 2, 2011 (EVANSVILLE, Ind.)

Brian Garner uncovered the scam on Craigslist.

The homeowner went onto Craigslist and found that his house in Evansville was being offered for rent at $700 a month.

Garner followed up on the post over the weekend, e-mailing the address listed and pretending to be interested in the house.

Sure enough, Garner got a response from someone from Nigeria who claimed he owned the home.

Police don't know who is behind this post but suspect it may be someone who actually is overseas.
