HENRICO COUNTY,  Va. -- Six victims have now come forward, all six having rented the same home in Eastern Henrico County.

Police say the owner of the home had recently rented a house on Fayette Avenue.

"The owner of the home had posted the ad on Craigslist, our suspect in this case, came forward, rented the house from the owner, signed his lease, provided him with funds up front to rent the house," says Lt. Chris Eley with Henrico County Police.

It was then that man who rented the home, turned around, re-posted it to Craigslist, and began showing the home to potential renters.

Four of the six attempted to move into the home on the same day, unaware of the others.

"I mean it was flooded, from here all the way down the street, on both sides," says Dominique Brower, who watched from next door. "People had moving trucks, two people had moving trucks and was trying to move in at the same time"

Police say the suspect collected more than $4,000 and there is concern that there may be more victims.

This isn't the first time this type scam has hit the county--police investigated a similar one just last year.
