DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Dickinson police say there is a new scam targeting people looking for housing in southwestern North Dakota.

Sgt. Kylan Klauzer says the scam artist finds a piece of property online for lease or sale, then advertises it with altered contact information, hoping to lure people into wiring money.

He says the scam is ideal for a community with a dynamic real estate market, and people should be cautious if they're using online real estate ads to seek out property.
