Fifth Wheel Mountain Camping cartoonA Craigslist scam targeting individuals searching for RV lots in the Williston, North Dakota area has led to one arrest, Williston Police Department officials said.

Sherri Jensen, 49, was charged in connection with the fraud Aug 17, according to a Williams County Court document provided by Williston Police Detective David Peterson. The charges, Conspiracy to Commit Theft and Theft of Property, are Class C felonies.

An ad provided by the Williston Police Department and posted Aug. 9 is titled, “$795 Williston Valley RV Park is Opening Soon!!! (2 Miles from Walmart).”

The ad asks for a $300 security deposit and posts a contact number.

Craigslist warns of possible fraud at the top of ads by saying, “Avoid scams and fraud by dealing locally! Beware any arrangement involving Western Union, Moneygram, wire transfer, or a landlord/owner who is out of the country or cannot meet you in person.”
