Thanks for the interest in my property and the house is still very much available for rent, and it is available for rent immediately so am looking for a very responsible person who would rent it and take very good care of it.

House Details:
Address: 3810 NW 63rd Avenue, Virginia Gardens, FL 33166
Bedroom: 3
Bathroom: 2.1
Month Rent:$800
Damage Deposit:$400
Lease Term: Month to Month
Long/Short term lease: YES
Pet policy: Allowed

Currently I am not around, I recently got transferred over to United - Kingdom 1 months ago because I won a bidding contract from my company (Textile Industry) which I bided for sometime ago for the introduction of new Industries in United - Kingdom. So I had to move down to United - Kingdom quickly to have my company set up because I will be staying here up to 3 years, and I have been staying here in United - Kingdom for the past one months. Before I moved to United - Kingdom, I looked for an agent to rent out the property for me but unfortunately for me I couldn't get an honest agent so I decided to rent it out myself. You will be doing me a great favor if you should rent my home because I am only looking for a responsible person to take very good care of my home for me while am here. And the building is in a great location situated in the quiet and safe area and offers secure access. internet, cable, laundry in-suite, storage facilities, heat, water, electric and parking is included in the rent and pet are allowed, $800 per month......So you can go ahead and view the house but you can't be able to view the inside. Well if you notice you will discover that the price am offering is far below standard price this is enough for you to know that I am not after the rental fee but the absolute care and maintenance of my property. So kindly get back to me as soon as possible if you are still interested so that we can proceed with the Rental Application Form and the Lease Agreement Form.

You can reach me on this numbers below:
(+447) - 0318-16630, (+447) - 0240-47346

Await your smooth response...
Best Regards...

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.
