If you have to spend $1200 for a tour may be you can tour the White House for that kind of money!!!

A landlord will almost always want to do a credit check on you before they will accept a deposit. They may ask for $25 to $50 to run the credit check.

They will also want to talk to you before they bother to run a credit check. They don't want to waste their time dealing with someone they don't want to rent their home to.

If you do a web search for "384 Leigh Ave, San Jose" you will immediately find web pages saying either for sale or pending.

There are many signs that this rental offer is nothing but a scam.

SCAM! SCAM! SCAM!

Never pay a large amount until you have seen the property and signed a lease/rental agreement. Maybe a small fee for a credit check but only after your have seen the property. You do not want to furnish all of your personal information just to see a property your may not want to rent. You certainly do not pay a bunch of money as a “deposit” just to see a property…which you will never get to see, by the way, even if you pay the money because this is a scam.

DON'T DO THAT! This will be the last time you will be able to get hold of the "landlord'. It is definitely a scam.
