Recently i received a request from you about my property 3638 17th
Street, San Francisco, CA 94114 which I`m renting.
The rent is 900 which includes also utilities and private parking place.
Its a very spacious 1 bedroom and 1 bathrooms which you ll have it all
for yourself, this is not a shared place.
I can give you also one month free if the period that you would rent the
place will be longer than 12 months.

I would like to know more about yourself like what do you do for a
living and if you don`t mind asking your age.
How many people will live at the property? How long you intend to rent
the place and if you want to rent it when would you like to move in?
I would appreciate answering those questions of course if you are
interested in renting the place.

Thanks for your reply. We own the place and our daughter lived there until 2 month ago when she got married and she moved to WA.
That`s why we decided to rent it.

Unfortunately, because of my job, it will be a bit difficult to meet you personally now for the moment we are in NY now and I am unable to travel right now. Last week I came there to meet a couple who was interested, but they never showed up, and it's not comfortable to fly back and forth from NY, especially when work commitments are made. Because of that we decide to make everything through Airbnb, an international company that mainly deals with rentals.
They will organize the inspection and will also assist you in managing the payment.

I`ll make the booking registration for you with Airbnb, and they will send you by e-mail the booking confirmation containing all the rental information including the payment information.
You`ll have to make a down payment of 1 month of rent to Airbnb and after they will receive it, an agent will be assigned for your reservation, which will contact you to inspect the place. Can be even the same day when the down payment was made.

If you like the place, you`ll sign the lease, you`ll get the keys from the Airbnb agent and you can move in right away.
The down payment is 100% refundable, after the inspection if you do not like the place and you do not want to rent it, Airbnb will return your down payment in full immediately.

If you would like to proceed, please give me your details (full name, current address and phone number) and we will make the registration for you with Airbnb.
Yours Truly,

This Scammer will arrange to send you an Invoice or notification -- Make no mistake, the document will be fake !
If you are reading this because you have received such an invoice or notification, kindly forward it to the address in my signature line and I will report the details to the appropriate authorities.
