I’ve been looking for houses to rent in my area and Craigslist is saturated with scam post with people claiming to be out of the US, usually in Nigeria, stealing other legit listings. And posting them as their ow and having the potential renter western union the deposit to them. I wonder just how many people have ben taken by these thieves?
Here is my latest victim. And when I say victim, I’m not talking about me. LOL
The most hilarious part is the rental app. LOL what kind of questions are those?
Thanks for making inquiry about the house. I am David H Saxton, the owner of the house. I left USA with my Family for UK and from UK I was transferred to the West to supervise a spread the message and not the virus project, organized by an individual. So since then I reside in one of the west African country (NIGERIA) and I will be staying here for a very long time because the people around here still needs to be enlightened on what HIV/AIDS is all about.
Back to the reason why I am sending you this message, which is that you are interested in my house.
In case you see any sign board Provided by Gohoming, they are the realtor in charge of my house before I decided to take over by my self. I am no more working with them and don’t bother to contact them because formerly i wanted to sell the house before me and my Lovely Family now decided to rent it out instead of selling it out.
I will want you to understand that the main reason why i am renting out my house is for it to be taking care of and not for money making purpose and that is why it is so cheap. Presently my house is still available for rent for $700 per month including the utilities like hydro washer, Internet connection, heat,dryer est, and the security deposit to move in is $600, the rent application form fee is included in the deposit and a copy of the original Rent Application Form will be sent to you as soon as the payment is paid including some other Documents.
My house will be available for like 5 years

Needless to say, he was scared off when I told him “thank you for your name and address as our city is making a huge case against him and his friends” and he is freaking out. Hopefully that will slow them down on the scams because I can’t imagine some poor innocent family getting scammed and ending up homeless.
