Post: House rental scam here at 8917 Cattaraugus Avenue
Description of person involved – Other details: The house at 8917 Cattaraugus Avenue sold a few weeks ago after sitting in Escrow for awhile. The tenants are long gone and Dan May was the agent who sold it. This afternoon an asian woman with a thick accent pulled up in a nice new car and looked at the house, then asked me about “the rental.” She had contacted someone from an ad for a cheap rental property ($1000/month), was told the rental cost was First and Last Month Rent, and $500 cleaning deposit ($2500). She was told not to bother the current tenants because they are still living there. She said she was ready to send them the money. I told her to go to the Police. My wife left a message with Dan May on his service. There is a largish sign on the bay window on the front of the house that says NOT FOR RENT!! IT’S A SCAM … I don’t know what else to do. Anybody?
