The Rock County Sheriff’s Office is warning potential renters of a scam on Craigslist.

The scammer offers rentals in the city, but claims to be hearing impaired and unable to communicate on the phone.  The scammer then asks the potential victim to send a money gram to an out-of-state address where a secretary will manage and send the keys back.  The scam draws victims by using current houses listed for sale in the area.
