Fox 29 Investigative Reporter Jeff Cole brings you the story of Pat Figueroa.
Pat, a single mom, says she was conned by a man who claimed he was a real estate agent in northeast Philadelphia.
Figueroa gave the man $2,400 to rent a house she saw advertised on craigslist.com. When she met that man at her job to give him the money, video cameras caught the transaction.
So, police would like you to take a look at the video. Do you recognize this man? He is accused of running an elaborate house rental scheme and ripping off Pat Figueroa.
If you recognize the man in this video, 15th District police would like you to call 215-686-3153.
Jeff also has these tips for viewers who want to rent an apartment:
1. Check the Philadelphia Board of Revision of Taxes website to find the owner of the property.
