BEWARE!!!! It is May 2013. We saw a home advertised on CL for rent. It read:

This 4 bedroom 3 bathroom Single Family Home is 3500 Square-feet.

Also the home features a built in pool.

Located in a nice quiet neighborhood.

The home has a very spacious front and backyard.

Very spacious home great size for family.

Near great local shops, restaurants and other amenities




Call John @ 954-778-5770 

Visit us online for your FREE APPLICATION @ (wwwJBrentsUSA.com)Being as this is 3500sq feet and 1500 in perfect shape.... I call ASAP. A man picks up saying "Al" and it sounded like I was on speaker phone. I asked for John, and he said it was him. Kinda a rough voice. Sounds to be in his 40s or into his 50s. He said we could view the property but that he wouldn't be able to be there in person. But he would give us the lockbox number. Great. Sounds good. We drive there with the kids in tow. The house is as advertised, the lockbox code worked, and the house was perfect. But you could tell no one had lived there in a while. Pool was green, but elec was on. 

My husband called while at the house and spoke to "John" who HE said, sounded like a YOUNG guy. Not an older man. Weird. "John" says he works for a "large investor" and it was just his job to fill them. 

He tells us to go online and fill out an application and then he will draw up a lease, meet us somewhere nearby and sign and pay $3,000. 

Okay........ Every step of the way it gets a lil weirder. So we go home and go to the website Www.JbRentsUSA.com and it redirects you to Florida Data Publishing, a cheap home made website. I review the About Section and the other areas, and think, well, maybe they are just a small group, who knows. I fill out the "application" which was basic personal info. I hit submit. As "John" instructed us, I then text him letting him know I sent it. 30secs later I get a text saying it didn't go through, can you do it again....Well. That's where it stopped for me I think. 

Then at 8:45 at night, ANOTHER number texts me saying his name is "Alan" and he needs to get my info for the app since it didn't go through. Now I'm worried. I google the guys name, "John Burgess Tampa" and scam report after scam report came through. All basically saying the same thing. Right as I was reading these things, that same number calls. THIS time, I answer. THIS was a young guy. I had him on speaker so my hubby could hear. (Hubby says THIS guy, does not sound like the one he spoke to). 

"Alan" says he's ready to take my info, "First Name?" I said, ok ok ok... I just saw http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/florida-asset-management-trust/internet-florida-/florida-asset-management-trust-or-clear-lake-pine-inc-or-clearlake-pines-holdings-or-hds-963437 about you. What can you tell me about this? 

He claimed it was just an angry employee and that they didn't know how to take it off. Then asked if I knew how to do it!?  I just stayed quiet and didn't say a peep. He got flustered and started mumbling about time. Then said he didn't want to spend the "3500$" to fix it. "Look, this is just a 1500$ rental, I don't have to do this, I'm just trying to get out of the office." 

So not knowing WHAT to do, I played dumb and said I'll call back in the AM and to have a good night. Trust me... None of this is normal or okay. W contacted Hillsborough County, the house isn't in his name or the companies. It's in a woman's name who has owned it since 04. 

We contacted our local Sheriffs office and because technically we didn't lose any money, I'm afraid that nothing will get done. I think the basic idea was to have us give them our info, they make a pretend lease, have you sign it, take your money and SAY they will give you a copy of the lease later, or the keys later etc. 

There was work that needed to be done at that property, he claimed he would take care of it later....... The nuts and bolts are this: 


The home in question was located at 16122 cardon (or carden deepening on his ad) Dr. Odessa, FL 360k home for 1500 a month. Median home cost is 600-700 in the area. "John's" cell is 954-778-5770"Alan's" cell is 813-347-8676

We believe there are  3 men involved, if not more. IF IM WRONG, MAY THE GOOD LORD STRIKE ME DOWN WHERE I SIT. 
Be careful. If you have questions etc feel free to contact me or reply to this thread. I will be praying no one else has this happen, or worst, give them all their money for a fake property.

#1 Consumer Comment



WHat he is pulliung is a scam. It's basically a ponzi scheme. what he does is finds houses in foreclosure and has the person sign the house over to him for $1000. IF he even pays the $1000. After that he rents out the house until it goes into foreclosure. He tried to do this to my house. IF YOU HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY HIM CALL THE FBI! weather you are a homeowner, employee, busisness who did work for free or someone who rented a house in foreclosure from him Please call the FBI! i called and made a report but they say they won't do anything without multiple reports. the only way to bring him down is to do something about it!

John Burgges

AUTHOR: TomG - ()

To the lady add about that john Burgges company . The way they work is they fine property that our in foreclosure then they mail latter tithe people say they can take it out of foreclosure and they will take care of all the court fee and everything so it don't mess up their credit just to be put on the deed of the house because when there on the deed it like they own it so when the people reply they offer 1800 - 2500 to take care of the property and also promise a certain percentage of the rent being collected but they never pay an they never win a case in court they just use the people property for cash flow because his Little attorney all he does is ask for extensions so they have the property for like 3 years of cash flow an never pay anything to the real owner it a scam and the state attorney don do anything I think they should be forced to make some kind of purchase as far as buying a few of these people home because any way u look at it this is stealing but what do they care huh their not getting the short end of the stick. Meaning the Government  and yes your have john Burgges jr who can be found on hcso.com under arrest inquiries then u have his dad same name but SR then u have young white guy Richard alan who is john right hand man and know everything about the scam cause he live in one of the for closure properties
