Here is the email from the scammer:
I am glad you’re interested in subleasing and I’m very optimistic that you will find it interesting subletting from me.
I am Larry Jones, I got a job with Oklahoma State University here in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
I still have more than 18 months lease in my apartment in Midtown, Sacramento. The unit is currently vacant and locked while I would like to know how many people will live in the apartment and also which rental contract do you prefer to start with 1 to 6 Months or 1 to 2 years with option of renewal
The apartment is furnished and can also be rented unfurnished with all the necessary equipment and appliances and its inclusive all the bills too. As its difficult to find someone to sublease for the whole year & 6 months, I am happy to lease the apartment to you for short/long term. I will not be able to show the apartment to you in person, since I’m in currently out of town. I took some pictures of the unit before leaving and can show them to you to see if it’s okay and I also have the keys and documents right here with me, so you can only view the unit from outside at the moment. Its Studio & 1 Bathroom, furnished, Electricity, Dishwasher, Wi-Fi Internet, Water, Air condition/Heater, Washer & Dryer and Assigned Parking space are included in the monthly rent. The rent, which includes all utilities, is $1000 per month. A Refundable damage deposit of $1000 will be paid alongside the rent before you move in and the building is pets allowed/friendly. I will like you to tell me about yourself because I am interested in knowing your capability of funding the rent and taking care of my apartment.
PS: I attached you all the pictures apartment along with the rental application form (as you can see everything is in absolutely perfect condition)
