I also just received this e-mail, from Sacramento, CA listings. There were bunch of listings for 1 br condos (different sq footage, different floors, different prices, different pictures) from the same address. I thought maybe it's a building, because the address is in downtown and I know there are many high rise buildings with condos/lofts/apts... It was odd, because there were multiple listings, asking me to contact Amanda P for more info (some listings said call, but no phone # was listed). I tried e-mailing 2x to one of the listings and got no reply. I used a different address (my work one which lists my name as last name, first name), and I got a response! Same as the ones you all got..
Hello last name,,
Thank you inquiring about my condo for rent. I am scheduling viewings of the unit and would be interested in showing you around the building.
Due to poor renting experiences in the past I am requesting that you confirm you have an reasonable credit score and would like to hear more about your current employment to avoid dealing with under qualified tenants.
I would suggest getting a free report from http://www.seemycreditscore.com/freescore/
which requires less than 3 minutes and has no cost. No viewings will be allowed until I have received your score. This will be helpful for other properties you are looking at and is a standard in pre-rent screening procedures.
I am asking that you complete the report and provide me with the numerical score, please DO NOT send the report as it contains sensitive information, you can print it for your records and bring it with you to the viewing.
If you can also tell me a little bit about yourself, your interests, hobbies.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I took my name out, but I noticed that it said hello, (my last name) and two commas. Anyway, seems like these people are all over CL. I know a lot of people don't think about these scams and probably put their info into those sites :(
