Be very careful renting or buying homes on Craig's list or any internet sight.. there are a lot of scams out there. I had a seller who had an empty home, she went by to check on it and there were people living in it. The week before they had given rent money and a deposit to someone claiming to be the owner of the property.
In Kingman this week there is a man names Luis Perez is stealing Realtors listings and posting them as rentals on Craigslist. He took one and the agent got several phone calls and emails from people trying to rent the property. He even went so far as having one person call the Agent to see the property. He is claiming to be the owner of the property. He is also advertising one other home that has "Wardex" stamped on the pictures in his Craigslist post and at least one other home that is advertised for sale by owner on Craigslist. He is not the owner of any of these properties.

He is using the website name of myhomerrentals.com and a few emails one of which is goodsonzedax@yahoo.com also rentmyhome@gmail.com. This has been reported it to the Kingman Police Department and they are following up on it, but, would like as many people as they can to pass along information if it happens to them. The more homes we find he is scamming the worse the charges will be if they can track him down. The Kingman police info is report #17-20213 and the Officer is M. Snay A125"
