Craigslist Rental Scam
Feb 24, 2016
Monetary Loss: $1500.00
I answered an add on Craigslist for a home for rent in the state I was moving to (South Carolina) she responded with an offer too good to be true which should have been my warning. Then I filled out forms and sent them back with a picture. She approved it ASAP too quickly but I still fell for it out of desperately she asked me to money gram the money to another woman? Lol. I'm an idiot because soon after I Google'd the property and its actually for sale!!!!!
I was looking for a house for rent on the Internet and I found this page called apartments.com I asked for info about a house I was interested on and supposedly the owner contact me and send me a application to get qualify to rent the house saying he works for a Catholic Church and got send out to Illinois and that's why he was renting his house. The thing is that he asked for to send $800 deposit over money gram in order to send out his keys and the leasing agreement.
i have been scammed. Rent to own. He had someone set fires so I could no longer live in the house. I never received my money back as contracted and promised. He lives in Chester at 2004 Harris st. Stay clear!
Went online looking for a house to rent from and my son found one that I like so I call the number and david answer the phone talk about the house went go look at call him back we made a deal on the phone that I send 6750.00 half of rent and the deposite then he well send me the keys cause when I get the keys send him the rest of the rent but I never got the keys so call and text him he block my number so went back website saw the house for rent threw a on-site rentals went to him them showed them about he also send a lease of the house threw my email and the rec. of the money I send him also I have all the information on my phone
I had contacted rentals.com about a house for rent at 6461 Cerritos Ave., Long beach, Calif., 90805 on Jan. 9, 2016 and then received an email from Jordan Carrbridge on Jan. 11, 2016 that this property was available. This person told me in his email that he had to relocate St. Paul, Mn due to his job. He told me that I could rent the house as long as I filed out an application and put a deposit down on the house. He had me deposit the amount of $1,200.00 into a bank account with the name of James Olawale, account #334044580983 into a Bank Of America account, which I did. He then told me in an email that I would be receiving the rental agreement and the keys to this address via Fed Ex within a few days and I heard no more from him. I then went to rentals.com, put in an email about 3 other properties for rent and ended up getting an email that these properties were available but, these new emails use different names but the same phone number, email address, same reason for renting the property, etc., etc. I have filed a report with Bank Of America but they say that I am unable to get my money bank because I made the deposit in cash. I also filed a police report with the Long Beach Police Department, the Better Business Bureau and a few other places. As of this date, the BBB states that there is nothing that they can do because the person with the bank account lives in Deluth, Geo. I have ALL of the emails, text messages, and a copy of the deposit slip. I just don't have a way to get ALL of this information to you as proof. The BBB has tried to reach rentals.com and they have not and will not respond to any of their emails or calls.
