The property was recently sold (about 1 month ago). The pictures for the rental appear to be taken when the property was for sale but not by the same photographer. The rental pictures were likely taken with a cell phone camera.
There may be a new owner who does intend to rent it out but it sure sounds like you were connected to a scam.
