71 year old Mary Ann Demmy wants to tell you about her latest Craigslist scam.

Please never invite anyone you don’t know from Craigslist into your home. Or face the consequences.

There are those that swindle and those that get swindled. 71 year old Grandma Mary Ann Demmy falls into the former. What and how does she swindle you? She is about to tell us now…

Gothamist: A 71-year old woman has been arrested in New Jersey for a house-sitting scam she has performed in at least three other states, including New York. Mary Ann Demmy was hired to care for a Glen Ridge, NJ house and pets while the family was away on vacation, but a neighbor called the cops when he saw “a lot of windows and doors were left open.”

Is that a warning sign when you see a lot of windows open? Let’s find out…

Demmy advertised as a house-sitter on Craigslist, and Glen Ridge Police Lt. Fred Egnezzo said she was “very polite, very well-spoken, she tried to be very charming.” Police also warned, “Please do not let your guard down as identity theft, fraud (and) credit card theft is on the rise and by people who you would never suspect.” Those little old ladies are always plotting their next move, which is why we never help them cross the street.

So next time when you’re tempted to let sweet old Mary Ann house sit in your apartment while you go jetting to Europe don’t be surprised if there’s something missing when you come back. At least we are sure that Mary Ann will be polite to shut the doors and windows when she’s done with you. So much for sweet old ladies…
