Sorry for the late reply...we really appreciate your timely response,we want you to know that we are very much serious about renting the house and very much willing to offer two month rent plus the security deposit in order to secure this unit prior to our arrival. You can send us the lease application, to enable us to review it ahead of time.I am an Engineer by profession and I am currently working with Tanglesolve Instrumentation, Design and Technical Support Services, England , UK . I will be in the states for a couple of year and during my stay I will be working with Allegis Group, Inc. network of companies on a private construction work.

I will be working under Jefferey Carrero. You can contact him on he's cell phone (323) 413-7694 best way is to send him TEXT, also we have a financier that is based in the States and he will be handling the rent deposit payment on our behalf, we will instruct him to send you a Check for this. as soon as you give us the go ahead to make out payment to you. Due to the limited time that we have before our arrival, we are making arrangements with a furniture company to supply the home with furniture's, so we will need you to provide us with the measurements of the living room and bedroom so that we can send it to the furniture company so that they can supply the unit with furniture that will fit in well.

Also send us a picture viewing the living room and the bed rooms As regards the lease agreement, we want you to send it to us for our review. We will eventually have it filled and signed on my arrival in your place as I am of the opinion that such documents are best filled and signed physically. We can start the lease by April 10th 2012 and we will be doing a one year lease. You can prepare the lease in my name and my wife's name (Mr.George Kirby & Mrs. Beverly Kirby.).Let us know how to move ahead as we intend to complete this deal before we move in.

It sounds like he has a lot of information. Rental scams are usually a fake check scam but giving away personal information could lead to possible identity theft if they want to do that. You might check the ID theft checklist at Fraud Aid:
