Sheriff Jay Russell Warns of Real Estate Scam

Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Investigators are investigating reports of a nationwide scam involving renting or buying houses online. Scammers are taking information from legitimate real estate listings from real estate sites and then posting the information on Facebook Marketplace and Zillow, falsely representing themselves as the owners of the listed property. In some cases, they have used fake identification and even the real owner’s name. The common indicator that it is a scam is that they ask for payment to be sent electronically via Bitcoin, cash cards or other 3rd party payment methods.
