So glad I found this site! My husband and I were about to \"rent to own\" our first home, it seemed too good to be true, $600 a month all utilities included, 3br 2ba.. He could never talk through phone call, as it would get static and drop, He kept encouraging us and telling us we wouldn\'t regret it. Telling us to send him the down payment and first months rent totaling $1200 through Walmart moneygram. When I found this site, I saw his number only with different names, and different locations, all someone who moved cause they were promoted at their job for US-AID, and that they moved to Ohio. So glad I found this site before we went completely broke and had no where to live!
Before I had found this site we found out that someone was evicted from the place just a few days ago, and upon further search found he was hiding behind someone else\'s name and that the house was over $1000 for rent but not on the market as of now. He took the name of an owner from 2009, not sure if they are still the owner or not, but they defiantly are not this guy. He didnt just want us to send through moneygram.. he wanted us to send it to his \"personal assistant\" guy benson, of 899 obetz rd Columbus Ohio 43270. There was a key lock on the door like most homes for sale, he insisted that we didn\'t worry about that but to send money as soon as we could cause he \"didn\'t want to lose another renter\" I confronted him, he played it off as someone hacked his email. So I sent him text messages showing all the info, he refuses to answer.
This was his first email:
