I am in the process of looking for a new apartment in Los Angeles and sent out a couple of emails to some listings on Craigslist. I received one reply from a 'pastor' and thought "hmm... seems odd. Sounds scammish to me." A couple of days later I received a reply to a different listing from another 'pastor' regarding their alleged rental property.

Here's the two responses if anyone's up for a game:

This one is from "Pastor David Verly" [email protected]

Hello xxxxxx,

Thanks for getting back to me,I am very glad you are interested in renting my apartment.I am Pastor David,the owner of the apartment you are interested in where i and my family resided before our relocation and we enjoyed the comfort of the apartment. I am a married,very hard working man,religious and business man.I am now located in Manchester,England on a business trip with my family.

I am looking for responsible Tenant that is going to be taking good care of my apartment while i am away and i will be trusting you that you are going to be taking good care of my apartment as i left it,the apartment is for long term and short term lease is also acceptable but I still have to make sure it is rented out to someone who can take good care of it because that is my main concern due to the fact that i spent a lot of money on that property.

Here is the address of the apartment: xxx Norwich Dr, West Hollywood, CA 90048

The rent is $600 and the security deposit is $300(refundable) which includes facilities such as water and heat laundry facilities,air condition,internet and telephone access and a car park and other necessary facilities,also comes with trash collection.The apartment is furnished.I want you to tell me of your experience with renting.Also i will like to know when you want to take possession of the apartment so that we can discuss how to get the keys and necessary documents to you,pets are allowed as well as long as they are not destructive.So if you know you are capable of the task,get back to me so that I can provide you with the application form that I would want you to answer.

Thank you and God bless you

and the second response from "Pastor Roseline Leonberger" [email protected]
