3141 Jamacha View, El Cajon, for only $1200 is a scam! Beware of a landlord named Jason Belle. It is NOT his house!

Asked by Marney, San Diego, CA Mon Sep 2, 2013

This four bedroom is actually listed for $2800 a month. If you want more information, please call 360-689-6836, ask for Marlene. DO NOT EVER send someone money for a deposit with meeting them in person and seeing inside the house. Thank you.

Hi again Marney,

Furthermore, the house sold for $450,000 on 7/18/12. The Rental Listing on Craigslist shows what you found and mentioned in your post.

However, the listing on Craigslist says "This is our personal home and we want to find a wonderful family who will take great care of our home!" The owner's name on the tax record from the 2012 purchase is NOT Marlene.

Here is the link to assist others:

Hi Marney,

When people are looking for rentals, here is our stock advise:

Beware of rental scam listings and ads that "look too good to be true”. Make sure you talk to the person managing the property and meet them to see it. Scams usually involve people asking for a deposit prior to seeing the property or your having filled out a rental application. The "owner" usually states they live out of state or out of the country. Other scams involve people stealing pictures from home listings then posting them as a rental with a low rental rate.

Best of luck to you,
