I am a real estate property manager. I recently had an ad posted on Zillow and our local news classifieds. Someone calling themselves "Richard" copied my add into craigslist and has been trying to get a quick deposit from people who have come to see the home. Sheila, the person I rented it to led him to believe that she would rent from him and provided me with the information when she found out it was a scam. He told her to send him the money by wire or money order to "Eileen Sutter" in Chicago Illinois 60656.

We exchanged several emails, texts and phone calls regarding renting a house. He sent us application and wanted us to send him deposit for keys. He said we could move in as soon as we got keys. We did some investigating on the house as a family had just moved in..we notified the current tenants that this guy was trying to rent us the house. The tenant states several people had come by there with the same story.
