This person is posing as a leasing agent trying to rent furnished apartments in Seattle, WA. He could very well be posting other ads in other cities via craigslist. I inquired and he sent me a rental application form which I filled and submitted and afterwards he gave me the account information of Kevin Rosenbaum who's bank account (5698162) I would need to place a holding deposit in summing around 4,000$. Here I became hesitant and started doing more research finally asking him to send me the exact pictures of what the apartment looked like. He complied and Upon further investigation I found the pictures were actually from an apartment complex in Houston Texas.

I emailed him and told him I was contacting the authorities and advised him to remove the ad. I am posting the information here because I believe he is posting these ads in other cities.
