Deputies warn of Craigslist scam

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Deputies have issues a warning about scam artists using a popular website.

Citrus County deputies say people are trying to rip off people through Craigslist. They offer to send people checks for more money than the items they want to buy, then tell the seller to send them the item and the extra cash.

Instead, the bad checks bounce and the seller is out the cash and the item they sold.

If you have any more information, contact the Citrus County Sheriff's Office.
