In the "What will they think of next" column comes this newest scam technique by one RaymondMike, scammer, on Craigslist.So here's the story.On Friday I listed this wonderful Lawrenceville Home For Sale. As with all my listings, I put a flier on Craigslist. I use an automated service provided by my loan officer for this. I didn't think much of the calls to rent the home since I get a lot of those on other homes, but this last call caught me.Here's the call:"Hello, this is Joshua.""Yes, We'd like to see 333 Brook Lea Cove.""Fantastic, where did you see it?""Well, that's the thing, is it even still available?""Of course, we just listed it today!""At $1,000 a month, that sounds too good to be true. "STOP!Hmm, well something must be wrong if I'm getting a few phone calls about rental then t...

Summer has started.  School is out and the fun begins (only if you live here or decide to purchase here). The tennis courts are busy, the pool is open, the basketball court is available and the club house is waiting for the party. Why are you not already here? Summer has turned hot and the pool is waiting to cool you down.  An umbrella fountain for the little ones, enough lounge chairs for the tanners and sleepers, enough water space to get really wet without bumping into everyone.  Not interested yet? Six complete tennis courts for tournaments, for practice, for just having fun. Oh, I see the word fun intrigues you a little. Tennis to the left, tennis and basketball to the rear, tennis to the right, pool and club house front and center with enough parking for everyone. Make an offer on...
