Victim Location 91601

Total money lost $2,000

Type of a scam Rental

I was on Apartments.com and came across an offer I couldn’t ignore. It felt too good to be true but he was obviously very experienced at this act.


Thank you for your interest in my apartment, it is still available. I

will try to give you as many details as I can regarding the apartment

in the following email.

The full address of the apartment is 4550 Coldwater Canyon Ave, Studio City,

CA 91604. Everything is just like in the pictures, fully equipped with

all the appliances you need, very clean and well kept. The apartment

can be rented furnished or if you want you can use your furniture and

deposit mine in the storage unit. I work as an civil engineer and the

company I work for has developed projects all around the world. Now, I

have received an very good offer from them to move to the United

Kingdom department, offer that I have accepted.

The apartment is vacant so you can move-in anytime you want, also my

contract in UK is for the next 6 years, so for this period, I will not

return 100%.

The rent of 1000$/month is for the whole apartment and includes all

the utilities: heat, water, electricity, parking, laundry in-suite,

washer and dryer also included, cable and internet. You will have full

access to all building amenities. Just in case repairs are needed

there, I will cover the costs, so no worries. The price I’m asking is

below the market because I want to find a responsible tenant to take

good care of the place.

I’m the owner of the apartment, it’s already paid in full and there is

no mortgage on it. You have everything you need near-by (public

transportation, schools, groceries etc.). Also I love pets, so if you

have any pets, I won’t have any problem, pets are allowed. Honestly

from point of view I’m sure that You’ll love it for sure and rent it

on spot.

I would like to know how many people will live in the apartment and

also how long do you intend to rent the apartment for?

Please let me know if you are really interested in the place so we can

discuss further.

Thank you and look forward hearing from you!


PS: I attached you all the pictures that I have with the apartment (as

you can see everything is in absolutely perfect condition).
