There was no Canadian vacation for this Scarsdale man.
A Nelson Road resident reported to Scarsdale Police on September 4 that he was scammed out of $1,100 on Craigslist while trying to book a vacation rental.
According to the SPD police report, the resident said he and his family used the website to find a condo rental in Toronto. After wiring $1,105 to the condo-owners bank account, the owner contacted him to say he had not received the money, according to the report.
After checking with this bank to confirm that the funds had been wired, he contacted the condo-owner to complete the booking confirmation. The owner then stopped all communication with the Scarsdale resident, according to the SPD report.
Both the Scarsdale PD and the Lawrenceville (Canada) PD are investigating the case.
