Real estate agents beware: Scammers can take the listings information from your real estate Web site and peddle them as rental properties to try to bleed unsuspecting prospective tenants of their money and personal information, according to a story by a news agency in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Karen Berberick of Northwood Realty Services found out that someone had taken a listing from her site and put it up for rent on Craigslist, along with a request for a deposit and for a credit application, KDKA-TV News reported.
