The scammer will send the below email and then if you work with him he will send a PDF lease form.
Once you complete it he will send you his/her bank routing and account numbers.
Also, he will text you from a US phone number asking about his payment.
Beware of this scammer. His/Her username is able god <[email protected]>
Phone number is 872-529-5302
Can share bank details with an admin if needed.
I contacted the building management of the rental property and asked them about if they have an agent called "Tom Kelly" and they said no, and their apartments start at $2700 meanwhile this scammer was offering it at $1600.
I went to the police to complain but they didn't do anything.
Filed a complaint at the FBI site and wanted to warn people here.
