I hate that you can't believe anything anymore. People are trying everything they can to scam you. I was looking at houses/townhouse in the Miami Beach area because even though we love our condo, we want a yard. Anyways I came across this ad for a house in one of the places we've been dreaming off, the reason I say dreaming is because the prices are ridiculous and we could never afford it. Long story short the price was so cheap that I emailed the owner to see if it was a typo or maybe a seasonal price and this is his response which has scam written all over!
I did get your response concerning the AD I posted on craigslist. The house is still available but presently I'm not around. I did bid for a portion of petroleum land sometimes ago in West Africa and fortunately I won the bidding so I have to move quickly down to Africa to have my company set up because I will still have to rebid for it in the next 10 years. I came over here with my wife, we both built the house when we got married. As soon as we settle down here I had a thought of selling the house so I have to look for an agent, after getting one, we got a deal but later my wife advised against that.. She said we may not be able to win the bidding next time, in other to keep our head when we return that we have to keep the house. I reasoned with her and accepted her advise. So I contacted the agent back and requested for my keys and documents. Later we decided to have the house rent out, we would have give the same agent this job also but the truth of the matter is that the agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant may not be able to reason along with him later. If you notice, you will discovered that the price we are offering is far below standard price, this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the absolute care for the property. I know there is no way I can be sure that you are the right person to live in the house because we won't be able to see physical before sending you the keys and the documents to occupy the space. But I just had a feeling that anyone who knows what it takes to put the kind of structure down should know that maintaining a building is mandatory, so if you belief you can take good care of the house and handle it like yours then I will be more than happy to let you rent the
