thanks for your mail and also interest in my house, but for security reason and for us(i and my husband) to be sure that we are not actually dealling with a fraudster,please you will have to tell me what is the location of the add of my house which you saw,...
sorry for the inconviniences but this days we have had alot of horrible expeerinces with scamms trying to rip us off our house and poss as true tenants wiling to rent butt they are not, so that why we are are taking this security measures so that we dnt fall victims into sccamm artist please you will have to tell us only the the strt and state.if you can provide that then and then we would be able to identify you as our real tenant...then we will give you the full address of our house and from there we can proceed on how you will be getting the keys to the house and move in asap..

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.
