Subject: Re: $700 / 3br - CONVENIENT HOME FOR RENT (Aurora, IL)
I must confess that I am new in this landlord business and the home is still available and ready for move in However, My name is Rev Jonathan P Kovac, I own the house located at (778 Symphony Dr Aurora, IL 60504)This home has been totally remodeled. All wood floors, new appliances RO System and soft water. Great home has it all.No HOA!! due to my job as a missionary I spent less time in the States. My family and I are currently in PHILIPPINES for missionary call . Before we left the stateside, we search for a God fearing and reputable agent who can take good care of the house, but we couldn't get anyone then We left with the key, remote and the papers, I'm willing to rent out the home to a good and God Fearing tenant because of this reason and more we need a responsible person (With good credit) that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money , I'm giving out the home with such a reasonable amount because I am only paying God back for his kindness and mercy over me and my family with what I have that`s why I asked for such a reasonable amount. It`s also a pride for me to work for him on a missionary work. Also I need someone/a family that will take good care of the house as their own property. If you can assure me that you can take proper care of the property as if it were yours.

This person asks for a deposit payment via Western Union, MoneyGram or bank transfer with a promise that you can have the keys to a property that does not belong to him.
Sounds safe. It's not!
At other times, he will ask for proof that you are able to pay the deposit and rent due to a string of time wasters.
This proof is in the form of a Western Union or MoneyGram payment to a lawyer,a friend or family member.
In either case, if payment is made and you give this person the details, they will collect the money.
You will not hear from them again.
If you are reading this because you are looking for property to rent, and you are in contact with this thief you are probably searching Craigslist, Gumtree or similar listing sites. If you receive any requests from 'Landlords' asking for some kind of payment before viewing, then it will also be a scam. Please forward the mail to me at the address in my signature line and I will investigate and list them if necessary.
