False rental schemes are once again rearing their ugly head in South Florida, the Palm Beach Post reported. A Boynton Beach homeowner said the home he sought to list for rent for $1,600 had already been posted on Craigslist by someone else for $800 per month. He had already worked with two brokerages about listing the home. A similar scam landed a Miami broker in jail in June. [Palm Beach Post]
