I contacted someone about a unit for kay. $600 and it was beautiful I thought it was a room. He sent me some beautiful pictures with a sad story of not being able to meet me. he was in an accident and in a wheel chair. he would get the money from me and then fedex the keys. I said I am sorry but if you can't meet me with the keys I can't send out my money. I told him there are scammers everywhere. Oh well no response from him since yesterday. Scammers be gone.

There probably was not an accident. He might not even own the building. A lot of people in Florida are renting out places they do not own. People are devastated after being kicked out by the building's rightful owner. They have paid big bucks to get into the place but the money is long gone. I know you are not in Florida, but people are the same everywhere.

@sharon6345 These people have absolutely no morals and do not even think they are doing something wrong. You can only hope that karma gets revenge on them eventually.

Sounds like another scammer :( But you're right there are lots so it's better to be safe than sorry

I don't understand how people can do those kinds of things to others. I'm glad you didn't fall for it. I would go further and report him to the police as a suspected thief, they may even be looking for him because of other complaints.

I've seen people end up in shelters from that type of scam.
