This is not Trulia's problem. This is your problem and as the listing agent you need to learn how to deal with scammers. ReMax has training for that. Have you taken their course? One easy method is to embed your contact information in all the listing photos. Scammers hate it and cannot use listings with pictures showing the agent's contact information. Some MLS systems allow it, others don't. You need to check with your MLS system. Another method is to check Craigslist and contact the scammer on that listing.

Either you are a new agent or you need training. I would not hire you and I'm a former realtor who was licensed in NY.

I think you would have better luck trying to buy a condo. Which may be lucky for you. See most people "settle" with Mobile thinking that is all they can get, when it is harder to get one and the price is higher.

I can do mobile homes, give me a call, let's figure out what your best option is.

Carlos,

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to Rentalfraud@Trulia.com.

The City of El Monte Municipal Code requires that any property that is for sale must be inspected and approved before escrow can close. For a property to be approved, any and all violations must be corrected before a certificate of occupancy will be issued to the escrow company. The City does offer a buyers affidavit, which permits the escrow to close once the buyer signs an agreement to make the necessary corrections. Please contact the City of El Monte Building Division if you have any questions regarding a property For Sale inspection at (626) 580-2050.

The application is here http://elmonteca.gov/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=KYX3qGU_qwE%3D&tabid=470
