Identity Theft Scam
I got three of these. All about the same
First and foremost, thank you for your interest in the home. I am available to show the house this week
if that fits your schedule.
Just to give you a little more information about the home, the water, trash
and garbage are paid by us. The security deposit can be paid in 2 installments if money is tight. (I know how that can be).
The house has a fenced in backyard and we do allow pets. The deposit per pet is a one time payment.
The house includes a washer and dryer, and we pay for lawn care so the renter does not have to cut the grass.
There is NO application fee (our company policy and guarantee).
I will be happy to show the house at an agreed upon time and date but I do require that all applicants and
additional renters who will be living in the home complete a free credit report to ensure their eligibility.
I have so many people apply for homes that I have to make sure they are qualified renters before I show the property.
This ensures neither of us will be wasting our time.
It is okay if you have bad credit (trust me). We just check to make sure that you don't have several evictions on
your record. (We won't rent if you have 3 or more evictions on your record)
I also had to recently stop giving out the exact address of rental properties before I am able to show them because
last time I did that the house was vandalized (I will be glad to send you the address right after your reply) I assure
you though that this is a very safe neighborhood. I actually lived in this home for 2 years (very cozy).
As soon as you can, please click and go to the secure website link below to complete the free credit report: (takes about 30 seconds)
Once you complete, I'll call you once I receive the information from the credit company (very quickly usually).
*** You don't have to send me your credit report.
Once you fill out the report the credit company automatically forwards me your name, email address and whether you have
had any outstanding evictions in the past 5 years to determine your renter eligibility. This is the only information I am
interested in. This is a soft credit report so it won't touch your FICO score (which is why we work with them).
This process turns some people off, so I completely understand if you decide not to complete them. In that case, good luck
with your home search. I just want to be honest with you up front about our process, which does a good job of protecting
us from ineligible renters and scammers. Also, the site above is one the safest and most secure website for credit reports in the
world, which is good for peace of mind. I have worked with them personally for a couple years now.
If you are truly interested in proceeding, take a moment and fill out one of the reports. Let me know when this is done and
we can then work out the time and date to go see the home. Email me back once you access your fresh report. I will be forwarded
the information. (Make sure to include a valid phone number. I usually call within 6 hours of submitting your report. Then I can
forward you the address and we can set up a time to tour the home.)
If eligible you will also be sent an email with my office number so we can set up a time to go see the house and discuss any
other questions or concerns you may have.
Thanks so much for your interest. I have attached photos of the home to this email. All furniture will be removed before you move in. All appliances will stay and you will also find a lawn mower in the shed. You can move in and start paying rent whenever you want (as long as its in the next three months) and my husband and I hope you can commit to staying for 6 months to a year.
I am free anytime this week or next, just let me know what fits your schedule best.
Here is some more information on the home:
-3 Bedroom and 2 Bath (around 1800 sq ft)
-There is a laundry washer and dryer
-I will pay the water bill, but you will have to cover your own electricty, telephone, tv, internet.
-There is a $35 deposit for keys which you will get back when you return the keys at the end of the rent term.
-Pets are more than welcome, but please make sure they do not damage the property.
As you can tell by the photos, we take great pride in this home. Therefore I take the quality of my tenants fairly seriously. I would love to show you this place, but first I ask you in good faith to go ahead and do a credit check. I know it is important to keep your privacy so I ask you NOT to send it to me via email. Just bring it with you when we meet to see the house. Instead, send me the order id number (they email it to you after you complete it). This shows me you are serious about moving forward, and also keeps your privacy.
I honestly do not care how high or low your credit score is. I know times are tough for everyone, including me. This is just an official way for me to see how many evictions you have on your record. As long as it's no more than one than I feel confident giving you the home.
Below is a secure link to the credit company. I have been using this company for years because they do soft credit reports (which means it doesn't touch ur FICO score). Please use the link below and complete the credit check. It should take you no longer than a couple minutes to finsih. As mentioned, DO NOT email me the report. Just copy/paste me your order id number (which will be emailed to you when you are done).

In terms of the homes address, I also wish to disclose this is in the next email, after I establish your eligbility. I have had an experience of someone on craigslist emailing me to meet at the home location, but in reality they showed up a day before to vandalize and steal. I do not wish to go through that again with this new property. I can assure you its in a wonderful and safe neighborhood and close to everything you could need.
I know this process turns some people off, but I only wish to obtain a high quality tenant and discourage inelidgle renters or scammers from continuing to waste my time. If you are uncomfortable, please move on and I wish you luck in finding a home. However if you decide to continue, I know you will absolutely love the place.
I look forward to getting your order id number and then sending you back an email with my phone number and the address of the home.
Thanks again and Happy Holidays,
