Nigerian scammer targets locals; so we call him

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.--  It's a familiar story, but people are still falling for it.

A scammer from Nigeria has been falsely posting an ad on Craigslist offering this home in Pasco for rent.

He tries to get you to send him a security deposit and rent with Western Union.

A viewer nearly fell for it but called us instead; so we called the scammer.

Police are aware of this alleged scam and say never wire someone money on Craigslist.  

Watch the video on the right to hear from the con artist in Nigeria.
