Victim Location 33458
Type of a scam Rental
I was using the Claigslist to find a rental room,
The "owner" emailed me back, but the content are very similar to ones reported as scam. Also, the guy called me with "home phone" as 1-636-525-1186. I did not pay any money at all, but I want to report this since I am kind of sure that it is rental scamming.
Please see below for the details of email ( [email protected] ) I received.
Thank for your email regarding my rental home and I am sorry for my late response as i have been extremely busy lately. the home is still available for rent. I’m looking for a responsible tenant and neat person or family who can treat my home as his or her own. , also you can go by the home and check it out, I believe you have address in the advert and if you like the home then you can write me back or call me for more details I can be reached at (305) 209-1687, House Address (1451 N Jeaga Dr, Jupiter, FL 33458).
A bit about me… I have recently moved to Chesterfield, MO to pursue an exciting opportunity I have been given with my job. I work for the Walgreen Co. (Walgreen’s), with whom I have been employed for almost 17 years. I will be taking the role of District Operations Trainer for the Cleveland District, which stretches all the way through to some other state. It will be a challenge, but one I am very excited about. I support training on new computer system upgrades and on operational process enhancements. I serve as a resource for both Store and Pharmacy Managers to answer and train them on any operations process or change in our company systems. I also do soft skills training on points like basic leadership topics and customer service.
I just want you to get notice that the keys are here with me in Chesterfield, MO you can only view the home from the outside for now! If you drive by the home you may see a sign there, you have nothing to worry about it belongs to my previous agent so you have absolutely nothing to worry about and you don’t have to call them because they do not have access to the premises anymore!
I did not entrust the place in the care of any agent or anyone because I want to deal directly with the tenant myself because of the last experience I had with my tenant.
I tried to look for an agent that I could believe and trust to give the document & the keys before I left but could not find any as a matter of urgency. And I don’t want the place to be misused in my absence that is why I took the keys and documents along with me and renting this place will give you access to the rest of the property and you won’ t have no one to share anything with.
So I hope you will promise to take very good care of the property when you move in which is my main concern and I’ll love a tenant to landlord relationship between us this is why I want to handle this all by myself, whereby you and I can ask questions, get things done and build a good rental relationship, I want a scenario whereby my tenant and I can communicate as family and not strangers, hope you get my points?
Here is an question you need to answer for us to know you more better and use it to fill the original application form with us here in other to proceed on sending the keys and document to you, I’ll like to know few things about you and your family such as below.
