A French man who goes by “Christian” pretended to be a broker and conned four people in two days into giving him deposits for a Miami rental apartment. The scam was found out when one of the conned renters saw an ad for the apartment, at 826 Euclid Avenue, and called the real broker to ask about her deposit. One other conned renter worked it out with the landlord to keep the apartment, but has yet to get back the $2,500 he gave to the fake broker.
