ADA, Mich.—One of West Michigan’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For has become a target in a scam.
Early this year, Dan Vos Construction Company of Ada notified the Better Business Bureau that its name was being used in a real estate rental scam. The company had received complaints from people in Arizona, New Jersey and Texas about a posting on Craigslist and Hotpads, claiming a Richard Carlson recently accepted a job with Dan Vos Construction Companies in Michigan and was offering his home in Arizona/New Jersey/Texas for rent. The rent posted varied between $600 and $740 per month and included all utilities.
Dan Vos Construction Company informed the BBB about the false posting. The company does not have an employee named Richard Carlson. The company name is also Dan Vos Construction Company, not companies.
As of April 1, both listings appeared to have been removed.
