The property listed below is being advertised twice, once on hotpads and once on craigslist. The craigslist ad is obviously a phony, but it fooled my daughter (almost) who is looking in the area.

Dear Mr Meager,
First, I never knew or consented to my Craig's list ad being transferred to Hot Pads.I am the owner of the 2615 Elderdale property in Hampton Cove. I can assure you and your daughter that the Craig's list add is a valid ad. I would greatly appreciate you telling me why you jumped to the erroneous conclusion that this ad was a scam. You will also find this add on fsboads.com; homes-for-sale-by-owner.info and al.com The Craig's list ad has run for 6-8 weeks and I have updated the open house info and recently chose to substantially reduce the price as we are ready to move.
Please call so you can issue a retraction to your false statement that borders on libel. Your statement, if believed by others, could cause financial harm by reducing the pool of available buyers and also causes personal harm by damaging my reputation as an honest citizen of Huntsville over the last 50 years!!

I would be careful what I say about people before you have fully cked out the listing. I really like the house and do hope we get call backs. Yes you do need to be careful on craigslist, but commom sence goes a long way too.

Yes, be careful, a lot of criminals are preying on the few who are purchasing right now. Call Call Call, talk to more than one person about a property and make sure you have signed copies of everything.

Landin Waldrip,
Please read my answer to Mark Meagher. He has created an outright lie in that my ad is completely valid and he has severely damaged my sales prospects on this site but will compound the damage to my personal integrity if he proceeds with a Flag as Scam on my Craig's list ad.
You have compounded my problem by accepting his lie as the truth and then continuing to spread this lie.
Please enter a note on this site to say you have no knowledge that this ad of mine is not a valid ad.
Thank you.

Hi Mark,

I'm glad your daughter didn't fall victim to this scam! You can "flag" the post directly on Craigslist to let them know about this scam.

Here are some more tips on avoiding scams if you would like to send it along to your daughter: http://hotpads.com/pages/scams.htm.

You have made my problem even worse by accepting his lie as the truth and then continuing to spread this lie.
Please enter a note on this site to say you have no knowledge that this ad of mine is not a valid ad. Check me out in the white pages and call to ask any questions you want to prove that Mark came up with his assertion out of thin air!!!
Thank you.
