Condo you inquired it still available for rent. I and my Family traveled to Texas and other cities for a program For Department of Defense (DoD) Military Healthcare System (MHS), VA/DoD Healthcare Affairs (OHA) Heath care in three major Cities

I need responsible tenant like you whom will take very good care of my house and maintain it in my absence. We will be away for a while that is why we made up our mind to put up our house for rent to whomever that will take good care of it. Please i want you to note that i spent a lot on this 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.
Utilities include Water, Trash, Sewer, Gas and Electricity. The money is not 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 checkup. I want to count in you and to trust you, to me I will always stand on my word.

Please feel free to ask any questions you do not understand and i will be looking forward to receive your email as soon as possible. As i am not around to show the inside, you can go check out the house and the neighborhood from the outside and get back to me if you really like it for more information.

In case you see any sign board, they are the Realtor in charge of my house before I decided to take over by my self. I am no more working with them and don't bother to contact them because formerly i wanted to sell the house before me and my Family,decided to rent it out instead of selling it out.

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.
