I am a real estate agent and have houses listed on MLS and many websites. A scammer copies the picture and words from the listing and creates a Craigslist ad reporting to rent the property at a low rate. Send me the money and I will send you a key. Here is the text from an email sent to the scammer to a victim:
God bless you for your interest about our House. This 3bd / 3baths room is still available for rent.
I am renting this house to a responsible and neat person or family who has the fear of God and who will treat my house as his or her own.
Presently Myself and my wife have moved out of the house due to my work transfer to ( Texas Houton) for an international Christian follower’s crusade.Please i want you to note that i spent a lot on my property that i want to give to you for rent,so i will solicit for your absolute maintenance of this house and want you to treat it as your own, It is not the money that is the main problem but i want you to keep it tidy all the time so that i will be glad to see it neat when i come for a check up and we will be away for good 5 years or more and this is reason why we are actually renting it out so if you are interested in taking good care of our house, then my family will be ready in accepting you as our new tenant who be fully in-charge of our house.
Don’t be surprised when you get to the home and see a for sale sign in the home, i had the intention of selling the home once but i thought about it again and decided to rent out the home.. The Realtor are trying to take advantage of me, asking for too much and trying to rip me off and it is a very beautiful home and i will always love to call it my home. So i will want you not to bother yourself about any sign you see in the home saying it is for sale..
If you really impress us by taking good care of our house then you will be allowed to stay as long as you wish okay,
Here is our address of the House: ( 603 Colville St, Chattanooga, TN 37405 )
So get back to us on how you could take care of our house or perhaps experience you have in renting . Hope you are okay with the price of US$1050/month with heat laundry facilities, air condition and so on and the deposit fee is $950… PETS ARE FULLY WELCOME! We are looking forward to hear from you ASAP.
