James plans eventually to move to Austin, so I’ve been house-hunting on his behalf. There have been a couple of rentals we’ve found that have been perfect, and when we contact the property manager, find out that the home has just been leased.

While looking, I came across this duplex. Half of it was for rent. It is charming, right?

Image

The rent was set at $1400, which is really low for a property this nice, but it is a bit out of the city, so I supposed that it was doable, especially if the people had owned the property for a long time and just wanted someone in it. I sent the owner an interest message through Zillow, then I went to work.

You can learn a lot through public records. What I found out was interesting and a little bit confusing. First of all, half of the property is owned by a family whose mailing address is the property itself, which indicates that that half is owner-occupied. The other half is owned by a family trust based in California (they also seem to own rental properties out there), so that part checked out. What was weird is that the pictures seemed to be of the half of the property that is owner-occupied. I did find pictures of the half that is owned by the California trust, but in finding those, it looked like there was a sale pending for that half of the home.

The next morning, I woke to a text from the “owner.” He asked me to email him (which seemed dumb since I’d put my e-mail address in the original correspondence). I did so, and explained that I was confused because it looked like there was a sale pending on the property.

His response clued me in that this was a scam, and I notified Zillow, who took down the property immediately. It showed back up a few hours later, though, this time, being offered to rent for $1000. Well, this doesn’t sit well with me. I reported both accounts to the government’s Internet Crimes Divison, but unfortunately, because I haven’t experienced any actual loss, a lot of times, authorities are wont to try to track these people down. I’m sorely tempted to send them $10 just so I can actually claim victimization.

In the meantime, I decided to waste as much of this guy’s time as possible. I am “courting” him from two separate email addresses, which is super fun. And I keep adding more bull, to which he responds with increasing verbosity.

I’ll try to keep these straight for you, and in the correct timeline, in case you’re interested. One of the e-mails I’m getting is from a Yahoo address with the name of the gentleman who actually owns the other half of the building. I’m deleting the name because he’s a real person and not involved (I found him on Facebook; sad part is that his son’s name is on the nursery wall in some of the publicly-available pictures from when the house was actually for sale at one point, and there’s a picture on this guy’s wall that everyone can see, so now that I know his address and his kid’s name and what the kid looks like, I could go over there and pretend to know the young ‘un. People need to be more careful about what they put online!). The other set of e-mails is coming from a Treasure Island address.

 Hello,
Thanks for the email. Yes the House is still available and will only be given out to the right person that will take very good care of the place and the facilities. The house has a lot of facilities like:
Interior Features
Living Room/Dining Room Combo, Concrete Flooring, Ceiling-High, Fire Alarm System, Smoke Detector, Walk-in Closet, Window Treatments, Breakfast Bar in Kitchen, Granite/Marble Counters in the Kitchen, Open to Family Room, Washer Connection, Storage, Utility Room.
Exterior Features
Wood Fence.
I have really decided to give out the house as a result of my transfer to Malaysia for missionary work.
I will be giving out the house for $1400 with a security deposit of $1000 and pet deposit of $500. I need to inform you as well that money is not the major reason why I am renting it out but want someone who can take care of it as if he/she owns it. So let me know as soon as possible if you can take good care of it, so that we can discuss the rent further. Pets are allowed.
We initially wanted to sell the house but we changed our minds and decided to rent it out because the economy is bad and it has also affected the housing market. We might decide to sell in the future but for now we are just renting it out.
 If you are interested you can go by and view it but you will not be able to go inside because the keys are here with me in Malaysia.Here is the address of the house (4601 Depew Ave # B Austin, Texas 78751).

Mr. XXX:
Thanks for your prompt response. I am going to fill out as much of your application form as I feel comfortable doing right now, and will complete it in full after we have established a few things. I have a few questions first:
1) Given your current location, how do you anticipate conducting the leasing transaction? I was a private property manager and REALTOR in Las Vegas, Nevada, for several years and understand that home rental management is challenging even when the property manager and/or owner are in the vicinity. I would like to know how also you would intend to handle maintenance issues and other concerns. When you say you want someone to take care of it as though they own it, are you speaking also in terms of repair/replacement of maintenance items, including absorbing those costs in whole?
2) How much is the rent? This doesn’t seem like a question for further down the road. We need to know in advance in order to determine whether this is a property we should pursue without wasting our time or yours.
3) What kind of lease term do you desire/expect? (month-to-month, 6 month? 12? more?)
As I mentioned, I have been a property manager and I have rented my own personal house out, as well. I have seen the disrespect with which tenants can treat a property, and was very discouraged when it happened to me, as well. My personal tenants brought in dogs I did not know they had, one dog was a “known” aggressive breed and bit a child, which resulted in my being (unsuccessfully) sued; the dogs dug up my back yard entirely and they tore up the doors they were closed behind; the tenants stole a dining set I’d left in the house for storage; etc. It is my intention always to treat others’ property as though it is my own; I want to be proud of where I live regardless of whose name is on the title.
Thank you,
Laura

Okay,just check on the payment receipt and and you will see MTCN control number there,just email it to me with the senders name you use in sending the money so that i can easily confirm it and i will go directly to the DHL office to send you the keys and the document of the house without any disappointment because i spoke with the DHL official and he said its good to do Monday and Tuesday posting to that it can be deliver fast and so that there wont be any delay or disappointment and it can be deliver to your home address the following day and later when you are done with the scanning of the receipt you can later attach it for me.Get back to me ASAP.God bless you.
   Regards.
***** Now I just need to figure out how to respond to that. Over at the other e-mail, the guy is starting to get huffy, too. That lady isn’t taking any of his garbage, though.

Very much so. I went to the MoneyGram place and their system was down. I’m getting ready to head to the doctor and will stop back by on my way home. I called and they said it was working today.

“Please ensure you get to reply my emails on time.” Really? Please, if you have someone else in line, go with them. This sounds a lot like my ex-boyfriend and, frankly, I don’t think that I want to be any any kind of relationship, professional or otherwise, with someone who is passive-aggressive/potentially abusive. Life’s too short, mate.

I hardly read from you and I want to be sure that you are still interested.  What’s the situation of things now.

***** So, yes. I am about to open a new level of crazy on this person. I have a lot of strategizing to do. If they’re goingto get money, I want them to *earn* it, darn it…
