If you are looking for a home for rent or to buy on craigslist, be careful Ann Arbor buyers. Today I received “another” call from a person who saw my listing for rent on the Huron River via Craigslist.
Only it is NOT my ad, but some spammer.
I went to Craigslist flagged it as prohibited.
The second call I got on renting the house was from someone that works at Bank of America. She said she had been communicating with the “supposed seller.”
I told her 1370 Huron River Dr was both for sale and rent, but at $3500.00 a month NOT $1000.00
So I emailed the scammer and the idiot has been emailing me back.
Here is the dialog:
Me: This is MY listing, I have had 2 people call me, (thankfully) about renting1370 Huron River Dr. at 1000.00 a month. I have reported you to craigslist.
You are a scammer trying to get money from people and this makes me sick.
Thankfully 2 people called me, but how much money have you scammed off the innocent the last 4 days?
Google Voice 734-926-9797
Her: Who are you?
Me: You see my contact information below, you are scamming innocent people, how much money have you made today, off defrauding people?
Her: OH how are you….how is the condition of my home
Me: It is NOT your home, Paula or whoever you are.
Her: why,give me prove that you own it.
At this point I am finished communicating with her. Most of the time I report the scammers, send an email and it is done.
If you are looking for homes for sale in Ann Arbor, please be careful and it is sounds to good to be true, it usually IS. Do a Google Search for the address in question and call the actual listing agent like these 2 people did. The whole thing makes me sick.
Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
HERE IS THE PAYMENT INFORMATION, Below is the instruction on how to send the rent and the security deposit, the money should be sent Via Western Union Money Transfer.
