Looks like a total scam.

Best way to find a 1-month rental? Google vacation rental property management companies. A quality 2-bedroom vacation rental should start at about $4,000/mo. in Waikiki, Diamond Head or Kahala. ... more

Hawaii ranks 8th in per capita income at 28k. Add the upswing in housing prices where we rank #1 recently http://www.trulia.com/home_prices
Along with fuel, utility, and other surcharges. Paradise definitely has a high price. ... more

The old adage applies: If it's too good to be true, it probably is. Check out those listings and call the listing agent. If there's no listing agent, then you should consider paying a rental agent to represent you in checking out the rental. ... more

You're right. There are no 1 bedrooms for less than $1200 in Waikiki.
The "Concierge" is nonexistent and Waikiki is on electricity, not gas.

Hi Joe: www.hicentral.com is the multiple listing website and has a rental section. Sunday paper and Craigslist are other sources.

Sounds too good to be true to me. Don't send money or provide any personal information. See unit and meet agent/owner in person before you do anything. Ad copy is sort of wonky too. Based on photos and description; should rent for $1,800 to $2,200 per month. ... more

Aloha Andrew,

There is a phone number listed at
http://www.postlets.com/rtpb/8526519

Strangely, it says it is a 2 BR apartment in the text and none of the ads have an apartment number.

I have reported it. It was also listed on Zillow, but has disappeared. Please flag it for Trulia to remove it.

Nancy Thomas answered:
Probably is a scam. #1 don't send money to anyone. #2 Be suspicious of anyone who does not have a telephone number which includes the local area code. #3 Don't rent a property until you have met the owner or agent and seen the inside of the property.

Although my rentals are posted online I do not rent to anyone who has not seen the property nor met with me or my agent. Legitimate owners or agents would never ask for money before showing the property and meeting the prospective tenant. Most agents also require an application and order a credit report before accepting a tenant.

Be safe; not sorry. Deal with local agents and owners and don't give $$ to anyone until you have met them and seen the property.

No phone number and no unit number. Looks very suspicious.
Price looks too low for a nice one bedroom.

Artemis, You can judge using the old axiom "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" a scam.

Hi Malry,

When you click on the listing, be sure to report it. Write exactly what you wrote above. Trulia relies on locals to flag these. I report a few a week, hopefully they can filter these better somehow. ... more

If you look at the header in the message, you can find out where the message was sent from by looking up the IP address.

I looked up this property address. No such address exists on Ala Wai. ... more
