As the city's busy tourism stretch continues, fans from Virginia Tech and Michigan have taken over the French Quarter ahead of Tuesday night's Sugar Bowl.
"It's been about 20 years since I've been to New Orleans,” said one fan. “It brings back some good memories."
However, with so many visitors expected in the city over the next couple months, con artists may be trying to cash in through an alleged scam on the popular classifieds website, Craigslist.
The alleged scam targets tourists who are looking to rent homes or apartments in the city for a few days.
As the scheme unfolds, a victim sends in a deposit, only to learn the address listed was never actually for rent, or in some cases, doesn't even exist.
