房经:老猿如何避免租客骗局-2

到了12月16日,我收到这位名叫Diana Arteta的‘年轻’‘美貌’女大学生之父经特快专递寄自美国数额为2,789.56美元的公司支票,我半信半疑到银行问我的户头经理,他说可以存,看来没问题,即使有,我不会有什么损失,但他提醒我必须在帐户上保留45天才能兑现,在此之前,这笔钱还不能算到手。

到了22号,这位租客没有出现,但她来电子邮件要求我给有关货运公司汇钱,替她偿付运送她小轿车的费用,款子从她给我的美金中扣除。其间有几点使我疑窦丛生:1/汇款的数额(有小数)怎么来的没有解释;2/为什么不电汇或采用其他惯常迅捷经济的付款方式;3/没有准时到温哥华也没有解释;4/为何坚持要我替她付车运费,而且不等45天期限。

我一边坚持说我必须等45天其父的国际公司支票兑现后才能为她付帐,一遍继续搜寻有关知讯,果然发现以下网站::http://www.rentingoutrooms.com/avoiding-a-common-roommates-scams-on-craigslist 得知整件事情都是精心策划的租客骗局。12月24日,我给她去函,明确告知我准备到警察局报案,同时告诉她可以把2789.52美金的支票取消或停付,从而没有上当,避免了一场专业骗局。(我损失了600元房租是每办法的事,因为这次我本来就没有任何其他潜在租客。)

经验:不见兔子不撒鹰,钱不到手不垫付!

hi there, did you read my last email at all? here was my response, again::

thanks for your message, Diana! as i told you in my last email about what my bank account manager has advised me, there is a 45 calendar days holding period for your international/american business cheque; that being the case, i absolutely should not and cannot send any money or make any payment for your car delivery or for whatsoever reason else before the money is actually in my account. they warned me there are too many online scams nowadays. although personally i would very much like to trust you as an authentic nice spanish student, i cannot afford to take the risk, especially since i have never seen you in person, nor have i gotten any legal documents, specific references or other verifiable information about your identity or character as required on our ads on craigslist. that is to say,  even upon your arrival, i would not necessarily take you as our tenant unless after you satisfy our scanning requirements, which we have to do with every new tenant, including you. if you do not feel comfortable with this process, you can ask your Father to cancel his cheque sent to me, but in that case, i have to deduct 600 dollars from the payment as compensation for my loss of one-month rent. please understand this as a normal legitimate procedure/practice according to our local tenancy act. also, we charge a 50 dollar pick up fee if you really need it from us when you arrive at vancouver int'l airport. please feel welcome to call me at my two business numbers. again, thanks and have a great new week! - mike

since you did not arrive on dec 22 as you said, i have begun to doubt if this is a rental-scam to begin with. are you aware of this site, which i have just found::http://www.rentingoutrooms.com/avoiding-a-common-roommates-scams-on-craigslist, -- apparently, this is a rental scam: similar names, similar approaches, almost exactly the same wording for emails ... how could you explain all this sameness please?

if this proves to be a rental scam, i, needless to say, will not rent any unit to you, and will report this to the police, while you can cancel your check if it is a valid one at all...

please be noted that i will not respond to your communication any more.

good try, and merry xmas! -
