Is this ANOTHER Wellington Florida Rental Scam?

Is this ANOTHER Wellington Florida Rental Scam?

This week I wrote a post about Rental Scams that are occurring in Wellington Florida, so when I received a call this morning regarding a townhome for rent in Wellington asking $400 a month I wasn't necessarily surprised.

Townhomes for Rent in Wellington FloridaHowever I didn't immediately jump to my normal this must be a scam conclusion instead I thought maybe it was a misprint or typo.  I'm very familiar with this Wellington Florida townhome community where the rent is usually around $1,400 a month, NOT $400.

So I checked our MLS to see if there were any townhomes for rent, which there wasn't and I let the caller know.  However she insisted that the ad on her I-Phone said $400 A MONTH, so I googled the community name along with $400 a month and up pops a listing.

Turns out this townhome is For Sale and if she were to PURCHASE this unit her monthly mortgage payment would be $400, plus taxes, insurance, hoa fees, etc.

So thankfully this wasn't another Wellington Florida rental scam instead just a person who needed to zoom in to read the fine print on her I-Phone.
