Responded to a Craigslist apartment rental that used the email "@ manzaniaapartments . c0m" or something like that. I asked some specific questions and got this: 

We appreciate your interest in our home for rent.

The rental we have that's currently vacant today is a 1 bedroom 1.0 bath with garage in a high demand area. The property has a washer and dryer.

There have not been any pets in the home so there are no smells, stains or odors. The home is pet friendly with no breed restrictions, we do not charge a fee or require a deposit but if your pet damages the property it is up to you to complete all repairs.


To rent our property we require the following:


1. A valid Driver's License or Photo ID

2. The 1st months rent

3. Completed background check for each applicant

4. Rental Agreement (month to month, 6 months or 1 year), I will bring it to the viewing


You can complete the backgrou nd check online using Rental Verified: link.

This is an affordable way for me to screen applicants based on previous tenant history and employment information. If you have a felony or poor rental history, I'm flexible and I will work with you.

This property rents quickly, let me know when you've completed your background check and are ready to schedule a viewing. It is in a .pdf, you can print it and bring to the viewing or email it to me.

What is the best contact number for you? Are you available tomorrow?

I will be available tomorrow, Friday morning.



She is asking for $40 per person background check before we even see the place or she answers the question of the cross street that the place is located. I googled the email address and found that people are having the exact same response from that email address all over the country. Don't waste your money!!
