Greetings,my name is REV BARRY RANDOLPH RODGER the owner of the house you are making inquiry of

Thanks for the mail and I am sorry for my late response as i have been extremely busy lately, It gives me great joy to know that you are interested in my lovely house, it is still very much available for rent and also ready for immediate occupancy.

We have moved out due to my transfer from my work now in Warsaw,Poland. Presently my house is still available for rent, (rent already include all utilities)More so Now,i am currently in WASHINGTON for a missionary work, Me and my wife along with our daughter travel from state to state for our missionary work counseling,Praying and also helping people in need.

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,That is the old advertisement/sign and because of that reason and more we are looking for a responsible and God fearing person that can take very good care of the house.If you noticed, the price we are offering is far below the standard price. This is enough for you to know that we are not after a market rate rental fee but an absolute perfect care of the property. So if you know that you are very responsible, you can email me back to secure and occupy my house at my absent.I hope i can put my trust and confidence in you as i always stand on my word.


The utilities are included in the monthly rent such as Dryer,Washer,Internet,cables,Trash,Heat,Water,Electric,Dishwasher,Refrigerator,Stove/Oven, Microwave and more,because of this reason we need a responsible person that can take very good care of the home.


I would like you to complete the tenant application form below I am not around to show you the inside of the house due to my missionary work and please be honest with the details so we can choose the right tenant.

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.
