It was. The guy claims he is a missionary and lives in another state. No one in Texas available to show the home and all correspondence to be done by email only. As soon as I saw how fast he responded and the response, i knew it was a scam.

What was the scam you saw.

Typically they are listed at $800-$900 a month and just look too good to be true.
Rentals are in high demand now.
Also the scams often say they allow pets.

If you can't see them in person and on the inside or someone wants you to send deposit or money to a far off place or by Western Union it is often a scam.

You can see the more legitimate rentals at this site:

There are scams everywhere. If you are looking for a place to rent in Plano I would suggest that you work with a realtor. I'd be happy to help you if you are not currently working with a realtor. Feel free to call or text me.

I was right:
I looked in my 1971 Random House Dictionary; and the word SCAM does not appear!!!

I don't even think that SCAM was a word when I wore a younger man's clothes.
