Shawn Noland, Renter in Millbrae, CA

is 40 Silva Ave, Millbrae, CA legitimate?

Asked by Shawn Noland, Millbrae, CA Tue Mar 12, 2013

Have been in contact via email with the owners, who both claim to be deaf. Email transactions seem to be a scam. Can you verify the listing?

I'm not sure. It doesn't show up in the MLS listing service that we agents use. They ( the owners) could be trying to rent it out on their own without the use of a broker. Though it does sound kind of fishy. Beware.

Ask the “owners” to meet you at the property because you want to see it if you plan to rent it. The “owners” can bring someone to interpret because they are deaf.

They will find another reason to put you off because they are not the “owners”, they are crooks.

Thanks all. $1500 for a 3bed/2baths in Millbrae! Too good to be true. Mr. Anh should be alerted by Trulia.com. Too bad Trulia did not verify owner before posting to sucker like me.

Nguyen Lan Anh Thi is the owner, paid 755k in 04 no information as a rental in the SM MLS. Sounds like a scam.

Try to meet with them on the property. If they refuse - it is a scam. Also, any realtor can check the county records in matter of minutes to verify the owner names.
