I made a call to trulia yesterday to inquire about a property that you had listed. The whole thing seemed a bit odd to me so I decided to verify with your customer service. When I spoke to customer service the woman (who was extremely helpful) stated that it was a scam and she immediately blocked and took them off for that property.

That property is 724 Cable Beach Lane, west palm beach, fl 33410.

I have filled a complaint with the FBI as well. As I am looking through the internet I run into them again under other properties listed with you. They also have properties listed under different rental sites.

Two of the other ones I found on your site:

2451 Copperwood Drive, Anchorage, AK 99516

756 Perry Ridge Road, Carbondale, CO 81623

I don\'t know if they have more. Those are others I happened to find. They go by the name Mr. And Mrs. Leslie A. Gillman. They ask you to send a deposit via Western Union Money Transfer to Brenda S. Johnson at 15290 Hwy 1110, Jackson, KY 41339
Their cell: 707-733-6497
Email: lovelyhome373@outlook.com

Once you send the deposit they FedEx you the keys and some documents. They say if you don\'t like the property return the keys with the documents for a full refund of your deposit. These properties are highly underpriced so it lures people in. They state they have had to relocate because of a job and have nobody in the areas to show the property. They quote a lot of bible verses and come across as very religious people who just want someone to care for their property.
I called their local police department this morning in Jackson, KY but they said I had to report it to the County Attorney\'s office Monday. They didn\'t seem to be fazed by any of it. In the meantime, I am still acting as if I am sending them a deposit so they are unaware that I am onto them.

I just want these people stopped. Who knows how much money they have received from innocent people. It highly angers me.

Since reporting them to FB I and other agencies, I have found so many other rental scams, it\'s scary!!
