In May 2020, I had been looking at ads for renting an apartment or home in the city I live in. Many rentals these days are through a leasing company that owns and manages everything. You even pay the rent online through their website. I saw a house on Craigslist and drove over to see it. There were no signs outside that it was for sale or rent and it looked occupied. I called the number on the Craigslist ad and got on hold for a company called finders. House. The recording while on hold stated that "some of their listings can be rent-to-own through their company. After a walk-thru you could move as fast as 3 days later." I talked to the person who answered (he had a heavy accent) and he texted me the link to their website. I found the house on their site and it said to get more info and photos you have to sign up and pay a fee. The choices are 1 month for $99 or 2 months for $129 and you get: Unlimited searches of our nationwide database

DO NOT PAY THIS SCAM COMPANY! THIS NONSENSE COMPANY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RENTING, SELLING, LANDLORDS, REAL ESTATE, DEEDS, BANKS, ETC.! WHAT THEY DO IS LIST ADDRESSES EACH WITH 1 PHOTO OF HOUSES THAT THEY *THINK* ARE IN FORECLOSURE. THEY HAVE A 5 STEP GUIDE & A VIDEO OF JUST TIME-CONSUMING CRAP THAT NO ONE LOOKING TO RENT WOULD EVEN TAKE SERIOUSLY! YOU GET NOTHING ELSE FOR YOUR MONEY.
