I saw a posting on Craigslist for a 2 bed 1 bath duplex in Fort Collins. It listed the price and amenities but had no location or photos. The only contact info listed was a phone number- (303)952-0273. I called the number and a woman answered and said she was with Relocation Services of America. I asked what properties they had available, she told me about a couple (again not including any actually street addresses). I asked how to apply and she asked for my email and then told me that I would be recieving an application and I just had to fill it out and email it back and then a Property Coordinator would be in contact with me.

This is what the email looked like:

We are a nationwide rental agency founded in in 1993. Since then we have grown and
expanded our business to become a nationwide rental agency. We have houses, townhouses,
duplexes, condos and multiplexes in all areas of the United States. We will be happy to work
with you to find you a new home! Please be sure to fill the application out completely and a
Property Coordinator will call you once it has been sent back to us.

There is a fully refundable upfront retainer fee of $350 to hold and guarantee a property.
The retainer fee is required PRIOR to viewing any properties. Once your payment has been
made, you will receive a written guarantee and receipt and you will be assigned a Property
Coordinator who will work with you until you are in a property that you like.
1) Must have valid ID
2) Must have stable income
I have read and understood these requirements:
I filled out the email and sent it back, but no one called me. So I called the woman back at the same number the next day. She told me that all I had to do was pay the $350 retainer fee and then I would be assigned a property coordinator. I asked her how to pay and she told me to go a Walgreens near me, go to the register and get a pre-paid debit card in the amount of $350. She said to call once I was there so they could walk me through the process. That was when I realized it was probably a scam. She gave me very little info, and simply said that a Property Coordinator would contact after the payment was made and I could then begin viewing properties. I googled Relocation Services of America and found very little info, except for their website . The website also has very little info on it, and the coporate address they list, when searched on google maps, shows up as a Pizza Hut.
