Hi Chris: Yes, the missionary folks are busy these days. They are going to leave the country soon and want someone reputable to rent their homes for four or five years at extraordinarily low prices just to make sure the homes are well cared for in their absence. How could you not trust such selfless souls. Just send your first months rent and deposit via MoneyGram or some other service through which money can be picked up at a hundred locations. No, no! They are not trying to pull the wool over your eyes. It's just that they are moving around a lot as they prepare to disembark on their soul-saving missions. And please, they don't want you to bother the people living in the houses now. Good friends. Don't want current occupants bothered while the occupants prepare to vacate. And, did they mention that they are missionaries? Good people missionaries. Good people!
Scams like this must work. They've been around for several years and even the scammers are usually smart enough to drop an approach that doesn't work. So be careful answering any classified ads, especially the ones that are "Too good to be true." They likely will be exactly that.
