HERCULES (KRON) — A Hercules man is behind bars after scamming several families into paying deposits on a rental home that wasn’t his.
The suspect used Craigslist to advertise the four bedroom home he claimed to be managing for his father.
Officials say he used a spare key he found at the house to gain access to the home and show it to victims.
But after signing a rental agreement and giving a deposit, victims soon realized something wasn’t quite right.
