Best wishes, Rudi
My name is Amanda Gates, I'm 48 years old, I'm a construction engineer and I'm the owner of this condo (2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms,1400 square footage). I lived in this beautiful condo for over 5 years and loved every day of it. The condo is fully furnished with all necessary amenities (exactly like in the pics), Brazilian cherry floors, Luxurious kitchen with Viking appliances, large kitchen island and Poggen Pohl cabinets, California Closets walk-in closet in bedroom;
The unit is equipped with recessed lighting, central air and heat, the condo come with two parking spots, a storage unit where you can deposit my furniture (if you don't like it and you want use your furniture),there is also a linen closet, and most importantly, a new front loading stacked washer and drier. Pets allowed. In 2009 I've moved to United Kingdom with my job (i am a construction engineer) and decided to rent it because I also pay rent here. The price is so low because I'm here and is very hard to find a tenant. I can rent you the condo for max. 5years. I really want to find a good and responsible tenant for it, and I hope that you can send me some personal information about yourself. The monthly rent is not negotiable, if you can pay the 3 months in advance it will be considered as 4 month's rent. The monthly rent for the apartment is US $700.00. First month's advance, $700.00 deposit. Looking for someone to rent anywhere from 3 months to 5 years. (water,electricity, Internet,cable, parking,air conditioning, fireplace, dishwasher, garbage are included) and I want to receive the money monthly in my bank account. You can move in the condo in the same day when you receive the keys. The only problem is that I`m the only person who has the keys and I have nobody in United States that could show you the condo. In order to check it, see if you like it (I'm sure that you'll love it), you need to receive the keys and the contract. Obviously we need a way to complete this deal in a safe and fast way for both. The solution is provided by a company called Trulia (http://www.trulia.com) which will handle the payment and delivery of the Keys. I used their services to receive the rent for 1 year (with my last tenant) and i am 100% satisfied with what they offer. They have a program that protects the tenant's deposit and makes sure that the tenant is fully satisfied with the condo before I receive the money. In conclusion, the money will be deposited and locked in their custody until you will be able to view & accept the condo. There is also a 5 days return policy (you can refuse the condo and you get your money with no questions asked). If you want to know more about how this deal can work please get back to me ASAP and I will send you the details step by step. Let me know if you are interested because I really need to take care of this matter by the end of the next week. email@example.com
I have reported her to the authorities.
You can find houses for rent on Trulia, and that is the full extent of what they offer.
If you want to know what Trulia offers, write them directly under the "Contact Us" section of the site. We as agents can only offer our opinion, where the Trulia employees will give you the facts.
We agree with the others, sounds like a scam.
As an FYI, 85% to 90% of the homes leased in San Diego get fulfilled through Craigslist. People we know own a property management company and even they use it. Here is the link for San Diego Housing/Apts:
Where it says Search For you can put "Downtown" or "92101" which is the zip code for Downtown SD.
Best of luck,

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...in this case definately is! There are all kinds of scams out there with rentals. They typically revolve around CraigsList ads. I've seen properties I'm representing have scam rental ads associated with them with email addresses that sound as if they are my owners. I would go to a Property Manager or rental agent to look at properties.
Hope you find a great rental.
