Same rental Scam as Kimberly (((REDACTED))) already reported on the Ripoff Reports. Same exact e-mail letter "To good to be true" rent of $1200 for a 2 + 2 Condo/Apartment in Santa Monica.
Here is a sample of the letter. Be aware. It also comes with lots of pictures. We have no idea if the pictures are for this apartment.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my property.My name is Nicole Miller,I'm 43 years old,I'm a construction engineer and I'm the owner of this condo(2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms,1200 square footage).I lived in this beautiful condo for over 2 years,loved every day of it. It's located in 901 10th St.407, Santa Monica, CA 90403. The unit is equipped with recessed lighting, central air and heat, the condo come with two parking spots,a storage unit where you can deposit my furniture (if you don't like it and you want use your furniture),there is also a linen closet, and most importantly, a new front loading stacked washer and drier. Pets allowed. I've moved to United Kingdom with my job (i am a construction engineer) and decided to rent it because the rent is very expensive here. The price is so low because I'm here and is very hard to find a tenant. I can rent you the condo for min. 1 month and max. 6 years(or more).I really want to find a good and responsible tenant for it, and I hope that you can send me some personal information about yourself. The rent for whole the condo for 1 month is $1200 including all utilities(water,electricity, internet, cable, parking , airconditioning, fireplace, dishwasher, garbage) and the security deposit is 1200$(you'll get the deposit back at your departure-or you can use it to pay your last month of rent) and I want to receive the money monthly in my bank account. You can move in the condo in the same day when you receive the keys. The only problem is that I'm the only person who has the keys and I have nobody in United States that could show you the condo. In order to check it, see if you like it(I'm sure that you'll love it), you need to receive the keys and the contract.
If you want to rent the condo, please e-mail me back and I will explain you how the payment and shipping will take place!
