It's a scam we've heard more than once in Houston. People are told, "wire your money and the rental property is yours to move in." The only problem with that is many people are being victimized by this scam.
That's the experience Casey Granger had when he moved from Oregon to Texas. He rented a house in League City and wired $2,300 to the person he thought was the authorized leasing agent. Then Granger gets a knock on the door telling him he had to move because someone else had the actual lease. It's a very common scam in Houston.
Casey Granger is on the Factor to talk about it.
