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.

Attached is a booking and agreement contract which you have to fill and sign before you pay. To reserve this apartment for your dates, you will have to pay an upfront payment of $450 via western union or money gram. We accept Money orders, Western union and Money Gram. Payment are made to our accountant and below is her details:

Accountant Name: Shannon Kramer
Accountant Address: 126 Videra Lane, Seneca, SC 29678 USA

Please fill your correct details on the contract. I will be waiting to get the contract from you so I can proceed with the reservation of this amazing apartment to you.
