Rentals in Orlando>Question Details

Chris Kenny, Renter in Orlando, FL

My question pertains to what screening process is there for home owners. There is this listing that I am interested in but skeptical about?

Asked by Chris Kenny, Orlando, FL Fri Jul 13, 2012

The home owner currently lives in Malaysia and is requesting that me and my roommate make the security deposit and 1st month's rent via western union prior to giving us access to view the inside of the house. So I was just wondering if all the home owners on this site are reputable because I used this site to contact them.

It looks like a SCAM, do not do this!!!!

Chris do not do this! This is probably a scam! Get with a good property management company in the Orlando area!

Best,

S-C-A-M . . . legitimate out-of-area property owners do NOT require a "viewing" fee of 1st month's rent.

You should contact an agent in Orlando FL and get the true owners information and let them know that their property is being used as a scam.

That's a scam... I would take the information to Western Union and notify them of the attempt to use their service to commit fraud.
