  • Monetary Loss: $0
There was a vacation rental advertised on Craigslist for a house in Santa Cruz, Ca. *** Mott Ave Santa Cruz, CA. I looked up the property online and saw that the ad had the exact content as the original sale listing. The renter told me that they purchased the property as a vacation house and was a personal rental when I asked for more details about his rental agency. He provided me 2 email of recent renters and they both provided positive responses. It was through this website that I found association with the same email address that backed up my suspicion that it was probably not a legitimate ad. Thank you for site. I am sure the people conducting the fraud can easily create new email addresses but just in case, the email addresses used as references are [email protected] & [email protected] Paypal account used - [email protected] Venmo account used - @Timothy-Palmer-25.

I advertised my house on Creglist and this lady by name Lacy Conrad contacted me via text message that she is dumb and wanted to move to Maryland from Colorado to pursue her studies. She told me her father will be paying the rents. A couple of days later, I received a check for $4800.00 from Domaine Carneros. I informed the lady i have received the chec. She asked me to send cash app to a dealer in the amount of $3600.00 so her car can be delivered to my address before her arrival. I asked her for a letter of authorization to transfer the money which she did sent. I sent the money($3600.00) to MAI XIONG through cash app using the phone number she provided to me as 720-292-9199. After I had completed the transactions and using the balance $1200.00 to start setting up the basement for my new tenant, i was shocked to check my account to find out that the check i had deposited has been returned as bad check. I stiil have handy a second check she mailed out to me claiming her father made a mistake to send out two checks to me. She advised me to keep the second check until her arrival on January 22nd 2020.

Rental Scam

APARTMENT RENTAL SCAM THEFT
I have recently been scammed for $1,050 in move in costs, yet I was never provided a key nor was I able to reach an actual landlord on my planned move in date of February 1, 2020. I have all financial records, e-mail correspondence that prove my payments. I even have a signed lease. I requested a full refund after I realized that I had been scammed and was given the run around and lied to. I "called" the number that I had the ongoing communication with and it apparently belongs to a "text now" service provider; 480-894-5648. I was not able to reach anyone by calling so I continued texting the agent. The scammer then asked for me to provide my bank information in order to refund my money.I did not provide this information as that would ensure another financial violation.
The address of the SCAM is- ***** W Tuckey Ln #2 Phoenix,AZ 85017
The e-mail from PAYPAL in which I sent over $1000 to is [email protected]
The lease I signed was sent from
[email protected]
The name of the supposed landlord is Eric O. Jason
He told me that he works through
Q Property Management
(Please note that the advertisement for this rental is on several rental search engines. This advertisement appears to have been online for over a months time. Please look into thoroughly.

Respectfully.

I have been scammed by Jackson & Company Holdings LLC who claimed they are Texas Military veterans

  • by: kristp511

  • Feb 7, 2020
  • Monetary Loss: $2900
A company that operates under Jackson & Company Holdings LLC which is operated by two brothers Robert E. Jackson and Marlon Ray Jackson claim they are Texas military veterans who help locate families into rental houses and eventually qualify these families to afford their home purchase after credit is rebuilt. They are not licensed real estate agents but they take perspective clients to see rental properties. They took tenants D. Guzman & S. Guzman to my property located at ##### Sagemeadow Lane and impersonated themselves as property managers on behalf of landlord. They gained access to the property because the lockbox code was previously given to them. D. Guzman and S. Guzman gave the Jackson brothers a total of $2900 of which $1450 was cashier’s check, $1000 cash, and $450 check payable to landlord but $450 never made it to landlord. The tenants moved into the property before landlord had reviewed nor signed any agreements. On January 31,2020 Marlon Jackson called tenant and demanded February’s rent to be given to him despite Jackson & Company not having any signed agreement with landlord. February’s rent was intercepted by landlord and now the Jackson brothers have gone radio silence. What they did was fraud. They have taken $2900 from D. Guzman, S. Guzman, and landlord. They fake documents and operate their business with intention to defraud the unsuspected public. Having already lost $2900 to Robert Jackson and Marlon Jackson, the tenants could face eviction if landlord does not receive January’s rent plus one month security deposit per customary practices.
