I have enjoyed this site for quite a while but have never found the time (medical student) or courage (wimp) to become a productive scam-baiting member, however, I am apartment shopping and received the glaring fisher email shown below. This email, for some reason, pissed me off. I would like someone to take on this craigslist meanie in my stead. Thanks, and I love the site!

I was interested in the house for rent at this location. Could I schedule a time to look at the property?



Thanks for your response and interest in my house.
The house is very much available and it is a 3Bedroom Home, in a very quite neighborhood in ainesville, FL, Which was formally occupied by me and my family before we left for Nigeria for a doctoral duty under a missionary, we left for a volunteer mission together with other missionaries for a development program with the aim of developing the people of west Africa physically and spiritually as God as directed us. We wanted to sale the house initially but we later changed our mind after we discovered that we wouldn't be spending more then 5 years here in Africa.

So as you know well that the house is located in,

8504 SW 68th RD, Gainesville, FL 32608, Which my family and I have spent so much time and money to maintain it up till its standard. We have been trying our best to make the house as clean as possible, because am a clean person and we don't like dirt around our surroundings and also the Bible says cleanliness is next to Godliness.
So we are looking for a well-behaved, clean and honest tenant to rent out our house too. So will like you to give us your words and promise us that you will take good care of our house so that we will be happy when we come to visit you in the future.. We accept short or long-term rent and month to month also... All the utilities are included in the rent.. Pets are allowed. So kindly get back to us with this information below.
