Thank you for your interest, I am the owner of the unit you are inquiring and the unit is available for immediate move in, we are looking for a responsible person/family to occupy and maintain the unit. My husband and I are also moved to Delaware on a job transfer placement with Daum Corp and medical/ health reasons, its advisable we move closer to our extended family so he can be well taken care of while I'm at work. This is going to be a standard lease, not a sublease. Rent is $​750 per month utilities inclusive. Security deposit is $950,one dedicated parking spot for one car, laundry on premises Address : ​​​​15129 S Raymond Ave, Gardena, CA 90247

The unit comes exactly as it is in the pictures i posted. You may go to the apartment to look around the neighborhood and environment and if you'll like to take things further, kindly get back to me for the rental application. Due to my job phone calls are high restricted only for allowed for family emergencies, i hope you understand that

How soon do you intend to move in?
Number of occupants?
Move in date and period of renting?

Thank you. Hope to hear from you again.

Thank You,
Regards
Darrion House

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.
