I was researching rental properties on craigslist.com, and sent an inquiry email about a listing that looked great...but lacked some basic information. The reply email directed me to another site to schedule an appointment. The site requires that you fill out a false credit application. These guys are just phishing for personal info & are probably identity thieves. I feel this is the case, because the reply was nearly identical to a different rental property I had looked at a few days earlier.

Thank you for your rental inquiry!

The rental is still available. We thougth we had the place rented to a couple we showed it to last week, but now it seems that they changed their mind, so we need to lease it as soon as possible. You were the second one to email me about it.

I am sure you will want to do a walk through of the property, but my family doesn\'t want me to advertise the address as a measure of safety. Last time we did that without verifying people, the empty property was broken into and vandalized. We don\'t want that to happen again! You will be responsible for cable, internet, and phone, if you decide to have these services. Just to confirm, we DO allow pets at this property.

If you would like to set up an appointment, go to the link below and enter the Property ID in the search box.

Your Property ID is: lAmPXBDCp

We use this site for all the properties we manage. Just fill out the online form and indicate that you want the free report. The actual scores aren\'t important to us, it\'s more of a formality to have it on file, to make sure there are no previous property related issues.

As far as getting together to see the property goes, I am available to show it any time from 10:00 am on, for the next week. Let me know once you have it printed out, and we will set up a time to do your walk-through.

Thank you once again for your interest!
