Scam Rental Offer for a house in Walnut Creek, CA worth 1,600,000 but renting for only $3,100/month. Pictures were stolen off of Zillow.com.
I received the email below. He now says it's a church mission in Appleton, WI instead of being out of the country. Also, says you do not have to switch the utilities to your name because the landlord will pay for them. Who pays a tenant's gas an electricity bill included in the rent?
Thank you to all who have posted here, I thought it was a scam because the rent was so low and the story about "mailing the keys" does not make sense, but now I know!
Hello, I receive your mail indicating your interest in my home for rent and i hope you are serious about this. Please let me know when you are ready to move in and also indicate if you can take good care of my home cos i made up my mind to sell the house until my lovely wife advised that we keep it for future purpose. right now we are renting and not selling but we would like to leave it into a good hand. I want my property to be well taken good care of, and there are some rules and regulation in which I do give out to tenant who are willing to rent my house so please don't disrespect my order but if you are still capable of renting my house the rules and regulation goes this way, You must keep my house clean including the surrounding, you must know the world ay in which you use the stove so as to avoid fire outbreak, you must not disturb the neighbor. I decided to rent out the property due to our transfer to (Appleton WI) on a Missionary Work by my church here, so we are renting it out since we need someone to take good care of the property on our absent. Don't be surprise if you find the home with another site and deference price, I have plan to rent it through Real estate before, but they are not serious simply because they have a lot of house to lease out and they added some money to the rent while there commission is not fair. Have this in mind you must know the kind of person that I'm nevertheless I am giving you this rules because of what corresponded between me and my last tenant. the keys and documents are with us here in Appleton WI... So I will need to ship them to you before you can occupy the house But you can drive by the house anytime to take a look at the area and surrounding, You can also peek through the windows if you don't mind. For now we are looking for 4 or 5 years lease or rather lets us know how long you wish to stay.
