I contacted the "landlord" bc the ad was so vague. He paul joey proceeded to tell me he lived in South Africa and had the key with him and that all he cared about was that the place was taken care of.
Yeah, right. Proceeded to give me the address of the place Contacted the realtor, she confirmed it was a scam and notified Craigslist. I got his "application" which was a joke, lol. Do people fall for this stuff? John and use the name Mike Joey when replying inquiries. This is not the first time he post the ad in Craigslist. Last year when I was looking for apartments in STJ, Virgin islands craiglist his ad, ed him, and he was in such a rush to ask for deposit. I ask for the address and pictures of the apartment before any deposit to be made, he sent me some 1"x1" images of an apartment that does NOT look like any apartments on an island, there were high rise buildings outside the windows, good that I got sharp eyes.
I know this is hard when you are not on-island, but believe me, it will save you heartache in the long run. Even if the rental is legit, you need to see it and meet the people managing it. What might be great for me might be a disaster for you. I inquired about the Le Grande Princesses condo as well. Within 2 s he wanted me to fill out the app and send him a check. I flat out asked him if this was a scam. His response? I asked him about the address and which condo it was.
I'm familiar with the area and he had no clue at all. Kinda funny once I knew he was a scammer to mess with him. Unfortunately, "Mike Joey" is still running the same scam. I ed him and he sent the phony pictures and the one rental application. When I told him I wouldn't rent without seeing the place first, he stopped replying. We have Virgin islands craiglist couple of efficiency units on St. Croix that we rent out on a monthly, or month to month, basis. It's the perfect answer to not having to commit to a long term arrangement, sight-unseen.
We do require a deposit to hold an apartment, but it's no more than you Virgin islands craiglist pay a hotel for just a few nights.
Sorry to hi-jack the thread for my own advertising, but I've been complaining about craigslist scams for years. Makes it hard for people to trust legitimate landlords, like me! I flag the scams every day. Apart from the very obvious giveaways hydro, heat, close to city transportation, parks, etc.
Anyway, a quick shows them up quite fast. That's a very good reason to use a Real Estate company and a d Realtor to help you in your search to find your long term rental and it costs you nothing. I found another one this morning as well as per below! Thomas, VI I notified the Agency they were using the photo from. It's sad there are so many people ready and willing to scam and Virgin islands craiglist from honest people.
