I went on trovit. Com and requested information about a house to rent. Gave my address, phone number, email, and some basic information. I called the rental company and I Was told it Was a scam. I called the number that I was receiving text messages from and a lady answered and said she had no clue what I was talking about and that she got the same information as I did. And it was on the same website.

Thanks for the interest in my House, my house is still available for rent and is located at ( 412 Grant Ave SE, Bemidji, MN 56601 ). quite and safe. I only need someone that can take good care of the house in my absence because right now am not around i just secured a contract in ( Atlanta, GA ) here in United States, Am here with the house keys and documents, I tried to look for management before i left but i couldn't get anyone on time but the one i got we had a deal and later my wife advised me against it, I reason with her and accept her advise. so i contacted the agent back and let her understand that i am no longer interested in her handling the property anymore then we decided to have the house for rent out by ourselves. We would have given the agent this job, but the truth of the matter is that agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant might not be able to reason with her. If you notice, you will discover that the price we are offering is below the standard price this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the absolute perfect care of the house. So if you have a good reference you can email me back to secure and occupy my house in my absence.

NB: You can go to check the neighborhood and get back to me for further discussion, any sign post will be remove once i get any responsible tenant so you ignore the sign post because i have stopped dealing and contacting the Realtor for too much fees i paid and the Realtor was trying to rip me off. It is available for a long term lease as we would be here for probably 5 years or more and we are also intending to buy a new house here in ( Atlanta, GA ). (Security deposit required) which is $500. I would need your References, Pets Acceptable. The rent fee is $500 per month including the utilities, Get back to me as soon as possible because i need a tenant urgently and i can also forward the application form to you if you are interested.

General house description:
Beautiful 3 Bd. 1 Ba. Quiet Cul-di-sac.Main Level: Spacious Family Room. Dining Room with Built-in Hutch. Open Kitchen with Lots of Cabinet Space. 1 Full Bath. Oversize Master Bedroom with Large Walk-in Closet. Basement.

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Looked for houses on VRBO and home away for a rental in Kauai. I submitted a few requests. I was then contacted by TUI Ferienhaus. They said the house i was looking for was available. They sent me this link: http://reservations-9flats.com/p679930187/
They informed me I needed pay the entire amount by bank direct deposit through the 9flats website. Account holders name was HUI WANG.
It didn't seem right so I looked at the house on other sites and it was twice the cost per night! I contacted a local rental agency in Kauai who knew the house and property manager. They informed me it was a scam and not to book it through that site.
