!! Craigslist Rental Scams !!
Currently we found them using a property at Luana Kai & Koa Lagoon (Both in Kihei)
There is a new scam on Maui using my name to post rentals. The email address is: ChrstphrBarca@Gmail.Com
Similar to my name without the vowels. The Sender Name is Christopher Barca.
So when someone see this and googles my name to see if the ad is legitimate they immediately see all my 5 Star reviews and articles and bio.

Bank name: Woodforest Bank
Account number: 8039206431
