There are three variations of the rental scam, and all are very successful. In one, the victim advertises a room or home rental. They will be contacted by an eager tenant from another country that needs to relocate for school or work.
Sometimes they claim to be renting the room for a relative, friend, or client.
They will then send money orders or cashiers checks for more money than is required to rent the property, and instruct you to send the extra money via Western Union to a shipping company, travel agent or furniture store prior to their arrival.
In the second, the scammer posts an ad for a rental property with a price that catches the eye as being really cheap. They will request a deposit prior to sending the keys to the would-be renter; obviously they keep your money and you get nothing in return.
The third is unique; the scammer advertises a free home to anyone that will assist them in running their business. They need you to cash checks for them while they are out of the country and wire them the money.
They will request that you do this once or twice as a "test run" prior to them sending you the keys and contract for the property to "establish trust" before appointing you as the official "collector" of money owed to them by vendors.
All three scams result in you sending them money and them vanishing into thin air.

Teresa, you know you've been telling me for weeks now that money was on the way, and I've not received a dollar yet. If I don't receive the funds in this next week I'll have no choice but to rent the room to another person that has expressed an interest in it.
Hello Missy, Many thanks for the mail responseand am really sorry for the payment delay,you will defintely receive the payment by this week okay,have a lovely weekend and extend my greetings to mike. regards teresa
I do hope so. It's just that I really need the extra money and this has drug on for almost one month. I could have rented it weeks ago to another person and already collected cash and had it in my account. How much money is being sent to me, and how much of that do you need me to send back .
Hello Missy, Many thanks for your mail response,i had been trying to reach my mom's client that sent you the payment via phone but his number had been busy and not available,i guess his busy cos he is always a busy person okay,but do try and contact me once you recieve the checks,but before then i must have gotten the necessary info as regards the checks and please i would need you to send to me the remaining balance after you must have deducted yur funds for the deposit payment of the room okay,have a ,lovely day and hope to read from you soon,do extend my greetings to mike. regards. teresa
Hello Missy, Thanks alot and i really appreciate your mail response,i want you to know that i really appreciate your great patient in all.
Sweety all i need is just $1450 to come to the states for now,so once you receive the checks i would need you to send to me the total amount of $1450 via western union money transfer then you can hold the rest of the funds for the deposit payment of the room so when i arrive the states i would balance you every neccessary expenses or payment that i would need to pay to you as regards the room okay. Have a lovely day and hope to hear from you soon sweety, extend my greetings to mike . regards teresa
Hello Missy, Thanks alot for the mail response,Yes no problem i would pay for the month i held you waiting for,when i arrive okay,that is not a problem,you can send the $1450 to my travelling agent,here is the details you will need to send the funds to me via westernunion money transfer,here is the details below below. Recievers Name...........................RICHARD ADENIYI City..............................................COTONOU
Country..........................................BENIN. TEST QUESTION.........................MONEY IS FROM WHO? ANSWER.......................................MISSY After making the payment,you will have to send to me the following informations about the transfer The Money Transfer Control Number( MTCN) Test Question and Answer Senders name and address Exact amount sent.
I have also decide to assist you with the western union outlets close to your area, here are the outlets you could make use of any one of them okay.
SHE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO LIST THE LOCATIONS OF ABOUT 15 WESTERN UNION LOCATIONS.
Teressa, I said at least 5 times I would do it and you've told me at least a dozen times the money was on it's way. Now, I told you last week if it wasn't here this week I was renting to another person, and her it is Wednesday and your still talking about sending it. We have discussed this for one month!!!!!!!
I have never in my life seen someone procrastinate this much. I doing you a favor, and your jerking me around again and again in an effort(so it appears) to stall for more time.
If it's not here this week and you expect me to continue to hold it, you will need to pay the months rent you've already caused me to lose by waiting and waiting and waiting for you. I'll send the 1,450, but you will need to bring cash with you also.
The rent is $1,100 and the deposit required is $1,000, so that's $2,100. Thus your only sending $900 more than needed and wanted $1,450 back! I do that, but I want the $500 when you arrive.
Now please, for Gods sake, can we move forward or end this all together?
Hello Missy, How you doing and do hope all is fine with you in the states?i await to read the transfered details of the $1450 soon so that i can make it up to you asap,like i told you,i will refund all necessary payment back to you once i arrive okay,have a lovely day and hope to hear from you soo,extend my greetings to mike . regards teresa
