Delaware police said two residents reported losing $1,100 to a Craigslist scam earlier this month.
The pair reportedly answered an advertisement to rent a local apartment, with the alleged owner living in New York. The pair forwarded a deposit and the first month's rent before learning the suspect did not own the vacant apartment, reports said.
The report was filed at 5:15 p.m. Nov. 14.
