Rentals Facebook scam

Same as others have described I posted on Facebook looking for a place in Chicago, and a woman named Sarah Thomas contacted me with a beautiful place that seemed too good to be true... they haven't asked for money yet but their application form doesn't cost and their format looks cheap. They don't care about credit score history or background check.

Scam by reaching out on Facebook

I joined the MIT and cambridge MA Facebook groups for finding apartments in Boston. A guy named "Patrick Tony Cypher" as well as "Dill Layas" messaged me approximately the same time. I first replied to Patrick cuz the studio he showed me is more ideal. Then the story began. He urged me to provide email and urged me like 10 messages right after emails are sent, to sign agreements, sign contract, and zelle pay deposit and rent. Since their application form was so poor condition, I begin to suspect it. And they asked me to pay first and deposit which is

Excel Rentals Scam

In mid-January 2022, my daughter posted on Facebook that she was looking for an off-campus apartment in Arlington, TX for the summer. Within days, "Chris" messaged her with a very good deal on a near-by location, and he emailed the lease. She showed us the building the following weekend, when we moved her back to campus: reasonable older two-story brick walk-up, 3 blocks from campus, and offered for half the monthly rate posted on Zillow. Looked like a good deal. But the lease emailed was clearly written for a weekend vacation rental and had been modified to handle a month-to-month residential. It was loaded with typos (bad word completions, grammar errors) and no place for me to sign as a guarantor. My daughter asked if there was an alternative to Zelle for payments; they replied, no. My daughter asked to see a unit; no, all were currently occupied. Asked for contact info for a local property manager on-site; Excel said they handled everything remotely. Nervous about not having housing for the beginning of her first set of rotations, she texted me Saturday night to make sure the funds would transfer by Sunday morning, 7am. Foolishly, I Zelled the $1200 on her behalf, and sent her the screenshot of the confirmation. Never got a receipt from Excel.
Over the course of the six days, they convinced her to Zelle another $550 "rental insurance" (read, additional security deposit), and then another $150 "cancellation fee" on this "fully-refundable" month-to-month lease. No receipts, no key, no one meeting her at the building to see a unit, and still asking for more money so "everything will be fixed." DO NOT BUY THE LIE!

The most honest person was the owner of the third phone number listed on the header of the lease. He said he gets at least 5 calls a day for Excel, and at least one a week from police departments across New York, investigating this scam.

I attempted to obtain a short term lease on an apartment via Facebook Marketplace. The company seemed legitimate and sent me a normal rental application, similar to that used in by other apartments I have successfully rented in the past. The scammer claimed I could use direct deposit from my bank to make the rental payment. I filled out the application and was "approved" for the apartment. The scammer then requested that I make a $2300 payment from Zelle in order to allow the apartment to be cleaned and prepared for move in. I was uncomfortable using Zelle since it is an unsecured method of payment and requested to use the original direct deposit or PayPal Business. The scammer became angered, claimed that I was difficult to work with, and otherwise irate towards myself and later my family members when they intervened. He was unable to produce a New York State Real Estate License Number or a New York State Business license number, claiming he was a private entity and therefore exempt from these requirements. At this point, there was no longer and doubt this individual was a scammer. He requested that I send him a $500 security deposit instead over Zelle and we could pay the remaining balance in person. The conversation ended at this point when he was called out for his illegal activities and hung up.

I was contacted via Facebook for an available rental and was asked to submit a deposit via Zelle. The application was "approved" almost immediately without any information being shared. They wanted a deposit before seeing the apartment and said just bring our receipt on the move-in day and we'll be let in. The apartment videos shared were clearly not from New York.

I posted on Facebook that I’m looking for a short term lease in NYC. Some woman named “Nancy kelvin” massaged me and sent me the most amazing apartment, exactly what I was looking for, in a great price. She asked for my email and then the company (excel rentals) emailed me, with an application form. I filled the form and sent it back. A day later, the company informed me that the landlord would want to rent the apartment to me, based on my application form. In the same email they asked my to wire $500 in order to receive the contract. At that point I started getting worried since their English wasn’t native (lots of grammar errors) so I looked for the apartment’a building on Google earth. Based on the photos and videos of the apartment that were sent to me, the apartment is at a high floor and has a balcony. The building on Google earth has only 3 floor and no balconies. I tried comparing more of their apartments listed on their website to Google earth and discovered they don’t exist. Afterwards I posted on an Israelis in New York group on Facebook, and got comments indicating that this is a fraud. Please feel free to compare the listing on their website to Google earth. I didn’t pay the $500 eventually, but I think this is a scam.
