State police are warning residents of the Bethel and Barnard area about a scam involving rental properties on Craigslist.

Police say someone is posing as an owner of Barnard home, asking for a rental deposit through Western Union. The person then claims they’ll send renters a key upon receipt of the deposit.

Police warn renters not to send money to anyone before seeing or gaining access to a rental property.

This is a recurring scam in the Barnard area, according to police, who advise renters to use caution when it comes to online rental ads.
