    Police from Tulsa, Claremore and the Rogers County Sheriff's Office say a large number of people are reporting a rental scam on Facebook and Craigslist. They say the scam was popular a couple of years ago and has reemerged.

    People are finding homes on Facebook and Craigslist listed to rent and later find out the houses are for sale. The scammers are believed to be copying listings from sites like Zillow.

    Police say the scammers give an elaborate excuse for why they can't show you the house in person.

    Officers tell the public to be aware of people who won't let you look at the house and look for prices that are too good to be true.
