Hi,do not transfer any money without asking the home owner to provide proof they own the home.
Secondly,if you inform them you would like your lawyer to review the info,if they never call you back then it's a scam.Or inform them your relative is a police officer and you love the home and want to view the home with them one more time,if it's a scam,they won't call you back looking for your deposit money. Remember this is your hard earned money,and never give cash,Always have proof of a cashiers check from a bank or a money order.I also learned this the hard way.
I myself have seen and even viewed pictures of homes,supposldly for rent,and they are using photos of homes that are on line,and some are scams.
I have even seen them using names such as pastor,and in my own personal experience was a scam,so beware if they are going by or using that title
Most likely they will always say I'm out of town and I need you to send the deposit.
If they text alot reqeusting info and you are not speaking with them personally
.(they usually will call you immediately and speak with you the first time,if you keep calling them back and there is no answer Beware

If you see a very big large home,and they are asking an usually low price,and have very little information listed on the home ,
if it sounds to good to be true it might be a scam.
I've even been told,they will have someone meet you and your suppose to give them the deposit.
Some scams are so good,they email you an application form asking for your social security number even.Yes,I've had this happen.
And they're saying they have a church home,
Some legit owners are actually out of town,so you need to be very careful.Most legit owners who do live out of the country will have a property manager or a realtor they pay.For example I viewed a home and the owner lives in France,but this was legit,a licencd realtor met me at the home.
Ask the home owner to send you proof that they own the home.
Have you been inside the home?
Who showed you the home then?
We're you given a lock box code or did you apply to view the home through a self viewing?
Review,everything that has occured in your situation.

You have a right to ask the owner for certification and just explain you would like to see proof that he owns the home(just as the owner asks for your information,I'd,License,etc)
Don't ever give your social security number out if asked on the phone,etc.
Remember the world we live in,and watch out for yourself.Since I experienced this first hand I am sharing my knowledge with you.
I wish you the best and hope this is helpful.

Gary and Karina Youngman answered:

This can be a challenging environment - as more and more developments get taken over and / or more large scale mgmt companies get involved - it may become even harder... As these "big business" operators are far more risk adverse and are more likely to simply and "categorically" deny the application.

Adding to this, today the nation is basking in a surge of rental properties, while the American family has been pushed out of their homes - with that - the demand is currently running at extremely high national levels. Consequentially, the prices have followed suit.

I would recommend you be proactive and get a couple of reference letters -
Employer - historical landlord, etc...

You could also offer financial security - an additional deposit, additional advance months, etc...

Hope this helps...

Jean Herman answered:
If there is no phone number, or if it is not a local phone number, don't bother replying. It is more than likely a scam. Scammers post on Trulia, offering property they don't own at much lower than market rates to get your interest. Then they start phishing for information. Then they ask you to send money. Don't get sucked in!

No phone number? Out of state phone number? Move on!
