Please read and tell everyone you know! My wife was helping her sister find a new place to rent and started to search Craigslist. She found a wonderful 4/2.5 in the Bay Hill subdivision here in Orlando for only $1,000 per month. She then emailed the person doing the listing and they emailed back about how they were traveling oversees with their church group and the home was given to them after their father passed away. That was the reason they only wanted $1,000 for rent and they also wanted know that my wife's sister was a good Christian woman who would take care of their home.
I found the email and the low price to make me feel uneasy. I asked my wife to send an email to the person who was renting the property for the address so her sister and her could check it out. She received an email back with the address and gave it to me.
I proceeded to enter the address on Google to try and find some more information on the home. And I did... The property was listed on Rent.com for $2,400 per month in rent and had the listing realtor's number right there. I called him and he told me that only 2 weeks ago another person had called and sent $1,000 over to the U.K. as a deposit and never received the keys.
Please let your friends and family know this before they start to look on Craigslist. It almost happened to my wife's sister and I dont want it to happen to anyone else.
Good luck out there and take care!
