A warning to landlords and ladies
Original post made by plao alto resident on Jun 28, 2011
I goggled his name and saw a couple of posts re a person by that name or using one other name that had been scamming people in this way. And there was a long list of other posters who had been scammed.
So I am writing here to warn other landowners that when getting respondents to your ads, never accept anyone who you cannot meet in person. If they are out of the country tell them they should contact you once they are back here. If it is still available you will then discuss it. And never agree to accept a check fuller than your amount to then send on the remainder to someone else.
And you all probably don't need my warning. But in case any of you are new at renting out. It can catch you off guard.
