Hello,

Thanks for your interest and inquiries about my house. It gives me great joy to know that you are interested in my lovely house.We recently relocated to UTAH to set up our retirement after 21 years of service in the United Nations, (We worked as a representatives Among the African groups with 54 member states. it also involves traveling for a Humanitarian trip called Empowering Youth to Fight Racism, HIV/AIDS, Poverty and Lack of Education,delivering Humanitarian Aid and promotion of sustainable developments scheme. We would love to rent to anyone that will take good care of it. I believe you have seen how lovely it is if from the pictures you saw in my posting compare to the 100% comfort to be derived from it as you are an occupant. We will be away for 5 to 6 years.

We tried to look for a dependable Realtor to handle the renting issue but we could not find one due to the limited amount of time we had before leaving even though the initial plan was to sell the house which we tried hard to do,but the agent inflates the commission and it takes longer to sell that is why we decided to rent it out. I am telling you this in case you find the house on another website or a realtor sign because it has to be ignored.

This person asks for a deposit payment via Western Union, MoneyGram or bank transfer with a promise that you can have the keys to a property that does not belong to him.

Sounds safe. It's not!

At other times, he will ask for proof that you are able to pay the deposit and rent due to a string of time wasters.
This proof is in the form of a Western Union or MoneyGram payment to a lawyer,a friend or family member.

In either case, if payment is made and you give this person the details, they will collect the money.
You will not hear from them again.

All the details such as names, addresses, pictures etc. that the scammer uses in order to back up his story, are stolen from elsewhere.

If you are reading this because you are looking for property to rent, and you are in contact with this thief you are probably searching Craigslist, Gumtree or similar listing sites. If you receive any requests from 'Landlords' asking for some kind of payment before viewing, then it will also be a scam. Please forward the mail to me at the address in my signature line and I will investigate and list them if necessary.
