In case anyone is still following this story, this scam happened again this past weekend (12/28/2012). I am the owner of the property in question, and a group of people showed up last Friday to pick up the key for their “rental.”. Like last year, they found an amazing deal on Craigslist, and were to meet the “owner” at the house for the key. We never rent this property out, and could only suggest that the “renters” contact the Killington police about the scam.
