Yup I have been dealing with this scam for two month. The first time they ALMOST got me. But the poor grammar, and insistence that I pay them via a WIRE (untraceable) was the giveaway.
NO LEGIT LANDLORD WILL MAKE YOU DO THIS EVER! They NEED a paper trail of payment for IRS purposes. PS. Same day approval?? Puh-LEEZE!
I inquired about two more listings and used the same email but different names for my inquires and got the SAME response VERBATIM. So I messed with them a bit. Check it out:
