Scam Alert

If you answer a Craigslist ad and get a response like this, be advised, it's a scam:


Hello Dear,

Thanks for the email. I own the house and also want you to know that it was due to my transfer to ( West Africa , Nigeria ) that makes us to leave the house and also want to give it out for rent and looking for a responsible person and God fearing person who can take very good care of the house in my absence.we are not after the money for the rent but want it to be clean all the time and the person that will rent it to take it as if it were its own.

So for now, I am here in West Africa and will be staying here for the next 3years in our new house and also with the keys of the house for rent, we try to look for an agent that we can give this documents and the keys before we left but could not find, and we as well do not want our house to be used any how in our absence that is why we took it along with us.

We came over to Africa for a missionary work, so i hope you will promise us that you will take very good care of the house. So get back to me if you know you could take care of our house or perhaps experience you have in renting home.Hope you are okay with the price of $1200 per month and the security Deposit is $600.Get back to me for the rental application.You can go and view.

My Contact Number: 0112348067766001 or +2348067766001

- This area is crawling, if not seething, with rental agents
- The address is legit, but this Nigerian scammer is not the owner
