I'm looking for a place in Vancouver and I already have been emailed back by a scammer, this email seems similar but I'm not entirely sure if it is.. does anyone have any experience with similar emails?
It wouldn't seem suspicious to me had I not received a similar email before. Here it is:
Hi! Here are a few pictures of my apartment... Please check the attached file!
I appreciate your interest in renting my apartment... I must apologize for the long email that i send you, but renting it is important to you, and I want to try and give you some insight into who I am and about the home you are renting.
My name is Raymond Amber and I'm the owner of the apartment, I love this apartment and it means a lot to me. It looks exactly like in the pictures. The apartment is paid in full and with NO legal problem, I am telling you this because with this financial crisis there are many apartments with problems.
The apartment is very close, in walking distance to local transport, bus, etc. with very quiet neighbors and area. Minutes away from downtown, close to school, transit and shopping. Drive way parking, affordably priced, clean mature neighbors seeking same in tenant. Great neighbors!
It has just been renovated, totally finished, flexible lease, is nice, clean, quiet, has all the facilities and the utilities a man needs including electric Utility, Cable TV, Parking, Laundry in the bldg, Air conditioning, high speed internet, workout facility, well behaved pets are allowed.
Tv: Cable/Satellite TV
The apartment is fully furnished, but I have the option of sending all my furniture into storage if you want to bring your own (no extra costs). It comes with a storage unit where you can deposit my furniture (if you don't like it and you want use your furniture).
The renting period is from 5 months up to 3 years (the longer the better). The rent for 1 month is $1100.00 (for the whole apartment). The all utilities are included in this price (rent/month), utilities are about $60.00-$80.00/month.
As a result of this I want to rent it, for this period, at this price and also to find the perfect person for my apartment. I just want to find the proper tenant, someone who will treat and care my apartment like it was his own.
I'm looking forward to rent it as soon as possible, I need the money and I must do that... $1100.00 is a good deal. Don't miss out on this bundle opportunity! We can make the deal happen right away.
What I need to know about you:
1. Your full name
2. Your full address & phone number
4. Are you married
5. How many people will be living in the house
6. Do you have a pet

9. I will like to know the exact date you will like to move into the apartment
10. How long do you want to stay in my house
11. Reason for moving out of current home
Please send me an e-mail with the information I requested. If you are interested in the apartment, describe yourself so i can have an idea about you and the people that will be living in my apartment.
I will select a candidate out of the e-mails that I will receive. I really need to take care of this matter by the end of the next week.
