This person uses the pictures and descriptions from our website, www.beachfrontbaby.com, and every couple of days publishes them in Craigslist. His ad looks like this:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a 3-story direct beach front house has a yard that is nearly 3/4 of an acre backing up to the ocean. The house is located in Mustang Royale Blvd, one of the most vibrant and colorful neighborhoods in Port Aransas.

You can\'t beat this view! Every bedroom in the main house opens up to a huge balcony overlooking the Texas gulf so that you can fall asleep listening to the waves. Plus, we have recently added a beautiful new studio apartment on the bottom floor that will sleep up to 4. Enjoy the sunrise from one of the two huge back decks and see the sun set from the front deck. The secluded bottom patio provides a private hot tub, grill, etc.

4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 15
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

People email the anonymous Craigslist email address and ask him if certain dates are available. He always replies that they are and asks for a money gram or cashier\'s check for several hundred dollars to reserve the house. Once the money is sent, he pockets it and they never hear from him again.
