[ISP] Beware of Rental Scam
Start Date: 3/6/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/6/2014
Entry Description
Hamilton County, IN- A rental scam on Craigslist occured in central Indiana.  On February 21st, a Plainfield, Indiana resident answered a Craigslist posting for a rental home in Noblesville, Indiana. The interested party inquired if the home was still available and she received an E-mail from Irene Parrish that it was and asked for the woman to fill out an application form. The woman completed the application and received an E-mail from Parrish that she was now residing in Inglewood, California and needed the victim to wire $1,900.00 to her via Moneygram. The $1,900.00 was to cover the $950.00 rent for the house and a $950.00 refundable deposit. The victim wired the money from a CVS store in Noblesville.

On Saturday, February 22nd, the victim received another E-mail from Parrish telling her that she needed another $950.00 for an extra month’s rent. The victim refused Parrish’s request informing her that she had already sent $1,900.00 and had not received the keys to the house.

The victim never received keys to the house found out later that the house was actually sold by a Reality Company that had their sign in the yard one week prior to the Craigslist posting.
