Ok, this is kind of weird.. for starters. My mother wants to sell the apartment and she wants to move temporarily somewhere so that when someone shows the apt. it would look decent without all the mess... Anyway, she doesn't have money to rent another place during that period and the only option was to search for something that is free in exchange for maintenance and taking care of the house. The only ad I found in my country is quite interesting. She of course got all worked up, because it's almost a dream come true for her. The house is beautiful, and they are not asking for any money. Just to take care of the house... for 3 years..! I was doing credit card report through CL's real estates myself, and I'm quite suspicious about this ad... The thing that got me all puzzled is that when I goggled the e-mail I got the same ad on the other site, with same pics of the house, but another city was listed. I figured it was some kind of a tricky scam, since it sounded quite legit until that..... Then I found that the real estate company they are supposedly clients off, actually exists and is quite big. It has offices in 4 towns in my country or so.... So now I'm puzzled. In first mail I told them we're interested. In their first reply they have sent me photos of the house's interior and told me they travelled to Africa, and have the keys and documents of the house with them. I don't know why I would need the documents if I'm only taking care of the house, but they told me they'll send it to me through delivery service, but they want us to pay for the delivery. That wouldn't be a problem if everything else is legit, but it all sounds strange to me. Code: So, if you want us to send you the keys just tell us and we will arrange for the keys and documents to be delivered to you. You will pay for the delivery of the keys and documents to the delivery agency that will bring the things to you .After you have received the keys and documents ,my agent will contact you and take you to the house. if you agree to take the house and want us to register the keys and documents so that it can be delivered to your home, give us the following information; your full name......... your home address........ your city of residence......... your phone number......... your postcode............... So, as you see, they also need our private info. Code: I will visit you next month to see how things are then we will discuss more . Why would someone who doesn't know anything about you give you a house to move in tomorrow, if you want, and then come to check on you after whole month?? I cant tell them "Oh, sorry, but I don't know you, so I can't give you my personal info and address" or "Could you please, pay for that delivery since you're paying for everything else." In case they are legit. But I cannot just trust them since I saw the same ad, translated poorly with a goggle transl. on two different sites, listed under two different cities, with same photos... Ok, it could be some sort of error, but why didn't the real estate broker, that according to the site has offices here, translate, or write the ads grammatically correct on the language of the site they were put on. If this is some method, and they didn't ask me for my CC info yet, and if they won't ask for some strange reason in some of the next ones, then I'm not getting it. They surely wouldn't get through all this hassle just to put the info I give them and ear 2-3 bucks from some 2 page, or similar CPA... or would they ,and if they are planning on delivering me some bogus paper and key, they are putting themselves in higher risk of getting caught.... I don't know can that be worth it, since the delivery agency they "choose" has to be cooperating with them, or they have to be the delivery agency themselves. Am I missing something here? Is this some known trick?
