    Looking for an apartment and every other listings is a scam. If you make money like this God bless you but I hope you trip over a rock and bump your head and forget how to post.

    Hello,

    I am sorry for my late response to your email as i have been busy lately, It gives me great joy to know that you are interested in my lovely house, its still very much available for rent and ready for immediate occupancy. I am sure you would be asking yourself why my rent is low, that's because i am not too keen about the amount in renting the house out but to whom i am renting the house out to and I spent less time in the States so I could not get a hold on any Realtor to handle this rent issue, although it was when I knew how long we are going to stay in Africa that I decided to rent out the house. More so , the initial plan was to sale out the House.which I tried, but sometimes the agents inflates the prize and it takes longer to sell i am telling you this in case if you find the house on another website, that is the old advert ,but had to change my mind as my Wife is not OK with us selling the house. My intention is to rent my house to someone that is responsible and be ready to take great care of the house as if it were his or hers, that is why the rent is low.I am very certain that you would love the comfy of the house.

    I would like you to know that i am giving this house out for rent because i have been posted to West Africa as an Pediatrician (Kid'sDoctor) and would spend couple of years before i would be through with my assignment here and if not because of this, I wouldn't have been renting the home out because me and my family resides in the house and we love the house so much. Me and my family have decided that we would be moving to our other home in Las Vegas, NV when we get back to the states, I would like you to complete the tenant application form below and please be honest with the details to enable us choose the right tenant.

    After i have received the above details, i will discuss with my wife (family) and let you know our terms and how we would conclude the renting process so you can move into our home asap. You can drive by the house since I am not in the State/Country and I don't have anyone to show you the inside of the house for now as our lawyer is presently in London, UK for a case and he is so busy right now but i can give you his number to call him, so if you are still interested let me know by filling the form above.

    Looking forward to hear from you with all this details so that i can have it in my file in case of issuing the receipt for you and contacting you. You can call us for more information on the rental on our West Africa number as we are in West Africa already on +2347045976949 or 0112347045976949

    I hope to hear from you soonest.
    God Bless You ..

    He will ask for deposit to be wired or paypal or whatever and then run off with the money.

    I think its time the list charged for apartment listings. If someone is looking to rent a place for $1400 a month they can afford $10 for a listing.

    you could also do this to build a searchers list of prospects, that you could sell for good monies to local real eastators.
