Recently, I've been apartment/house-hunting, with a concentrated focus in Wake County, NC. I've been checking out the newspaper, driving around certain areas, and of course, I've perused Craigslist.
I found what I thought was the perfect home in an affordable price range, and was super excited. Suddenly, a red flag popped up in my head, screaming "Warning, Warning!" The "owner" told me to ignore the "For Sale" sign found at the property and after he received payment, the keys and necessary paperwork would be sent to me via courier because he was out of town. Huh?
