Hey,

So i sent the guy back this:
Sorry Kenny,

Not that I dont believe you are an honest person. But I would have to see the property before any transactions are made, especially sending money to an individual oversea's. Unless you have a friend or acquaintance that could show me the property before hand and as soon as possible, then i could make a decision. If that is not the case, then i have no choice but to say forget about it. Let me know.

Cheers,

And this is the response:

Hello,

Regarding the viewing of the home. You can't view the inside as i told you earlier because the keys and documents are here with us.You can view the building and the location. so get back to me if your are really interested in renting my property I know how you feel, at this point in time. As it wasn't my fault, as i was suppose to lock up the property at the very time i was coming down here, and i never had any intention of renting it out. if not for my wife who advised it will be wise to lease the property, since i am always worried about the maintenance of the inside. So the tenant can always keep it clean and send me update pics and its even more of the reason why i sent you the interior pics of the property.....Also both short and long time lease is acceptable.

The person that i have that could show you the place is my brother but unfortunately he traveled to the united state last week to complete his doctorate degree program, the keys will be send to you through the Dhl Express Courier Company.

I really understand how you feel and if i happen to be in your shoe i can also think in that direction because of the rate of scam going on here and there. Is not that easy to trust someone on internet this days again. But i want you to know that there are still a lot of good people out there to trust. As for me i am trustworthy and honest man and i always stand on my words always.

I try to find an agent to be in-charge but i don't see a trusted one and i hate to see people been treated anyhow because of rent or where to stay. I am God fearing person and i can never tarnished my image because of money, i know how people work hard to get money and i also have blood running through my veins too.

Please let me know what you feel as soon as possible, so i wouldn't disappoint you, as there are also responses coming in regarding the property. And please note that is not all about sending the rent deposit or monthly rent that matters in this relationship and agreement, but your absolute maintenance and promise to keep my apartment save and clean. And also i will need you to often send me some update pics of the apartment from time to time at your own convenient time. As i am counting on you. Let me know how soon you want this done, is so important as i told you earlier. So if you are still interested you can get back to me with the complete rental application form asap.

Awaiting your mail.

Scam?

You can never "view" the apartment because the keys and the paperwork are always in Africa. In other words they don't exist because "Kenny" doesn't own the apartment but he probably wants to send you a fake check. That's how he steals money.

You would deposit the cheque at your bank, wire money to Africa, and then you are left with the fake cheque when it bounces.
