My friend got caught by a CL's rental scam. The "owner" lived four hours away and didn't want to come down ifthey couldn't afford the rent/deposit, so he told her to wire the money to someone she knew and then send him a copy of the receipt.
There were two roomates, so they wired the money to each other and sent a copy of the transfer to the "owner". Two days later, my friend went to claim the money back, only to find out it had already been collected by someone. And now Western Union are saying it's not their fault that whoever gave the guy the money didn't check for ID. Umm...isn't that part of your rules?
