Found a too good to be true apartment for rent on Craigslist. Received this e-mail:

Thank you for your interest in our property for rent.
The rental we have that's currently vacant right now is a 1 bedroom 1.0 bath with garage in an excellent area. The home has a washing machine and dryer.
There have not been any pets in the property so there are no smells, stains or odors. The property 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 first months rent
3. 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 comple te the background check online using Rental Verified: link.
This is an affordable way for me to screen applicants based on prior tenant history and job history. If you have a criminal record or poor tenant history, I am flexible and I will help you out.
This property rents quickly, contact me once you've completed your background check and are ready to schedule a viewing. It's 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, Thursday morning.


I went to do the background check on, and paid $39.99 (both me and my boyfriend) and sent the pdf to this email:

Have not received a reply but have found many people online saying this is a scam. We do not want to become victims of Identification fraud.
