(JACKSON)  The Jackson Police Department is cautioning those seeking a rental property or property for sale to be careful about responding to listings of real estate on websites like Facebook or Craig’s List.  Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says the scammers – often-times in foreign countries – list properties they don’t own and offer them for incredible deals.  He says that prompts someone to call to inquire about the property, and the scammer will request a deposit to hold the property for them which is sent to some bank account; and it turns out that it is a fraudulent transaction, of course.”  Nethercott says your best defense is to deal only with local owners, agents, buyers and renters, and insist upon at least one face-to-face meeting before exchanging personal information or money.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
