Tomson Doyle-Michels (Rental Fraud)

I can send emails of the conversations we have had so far.. basically, I am looking for a place to rent. this guy responded to my inquiry. He doesn’t live in my city but wants to go through realtor.com to negotiate our rental agreement; this company ONLY advertises, so here are the emails we have exchanged. I KNOW THIS GUY IS A BIG.FAT.LIAR!
Lead for 2 Bd, 2 Bath, Goose Island Chicago

To me:
Thanks for your interest,

My name is Tomson Doyle-Michels, the owner of the unit.
I have been transferred with my work as an military sergeant to Chicago, initially for 2 year and I have brought it in the time I was working there. Now, after 5 months, I have been notified that I’ve been moved with my job to US Military Base in Washington DC and my property is available even for long and short term periods.

The rent is $990.00 per month including utilities(cold/hot water, electricity, wireless broadband Internet, digital TV, 2 parking spots, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, etc.). Rent will be paid monthly. Utilities are being deducted from my bank account by direct debit at the begging of each month, so you don’t have to worry about them.

The unit has 2 Bedroom, 2 full Bathrooms, it’s fully furnished, (can be unfurnished if you request).
Please check attach for the whole pictures album: www.use.com/23f7ee0bab5…

Rental price : $990.00 per month
Security bond : YES ( $990.00 ) and you get it back, when you decide to leave the unit (you will have to give me at least 30 days notice)
Parking Spaces: 2 included in rental price
PETS ALLOWED
Neighborhood: Goose Island
Full address: 550 W Kinzie St #2805, Chicago, IL 60654

The unit is available for immediate move, if you are not moving immediately, you would be required to make a Non-Negotiable down payment ($1,980.00) to book the property till desired move in date.

Before we go any further I would like to know a little something about you, like how many persons you intend to live and for how long.
I would appreciate if you could also let me know the ” move in ” date.

Thank you!
Tomson Doyle-Michels

Hi there,

My name is S****, I’m a young professional working as the lead physician assistant in cardiothoracic surgery at Mt Sinai Hospital here in Chicago. I am currently residing in Lincoln Park with 2 other females I went to graduate school with. I have come to a point in my life where I feel ready to take the next step of living on my own as well as purchase a puppy for company. I’m a tidy individual with a very organized lifestyle. I spend a lot of time working, participating in social sports, and tentatively attending to my new pup.

My lease actually does not end until May 31, 2014, so I am currently looking for a June 1 start date. As far as how long I would like to live in the apartment, i would like to start with a year’s contract and if things work well, then we may be able to talk about further availability if you so desire.

At your request, if we were to work out a contract where I would lease your place, I would be able to secure the down payment of $1980 along with the security deposit of $990.

Please let me know if you would like to further discuss leasing me your apt. I do make an excellent and responsible tenant.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

S****

Hi,

Perfect we can start with a basic 1-6 months contract with the possibility of renewing it or with the period of time suitable for you.

I will never ask you to leave the unit. We’re building our life here in Washington, so I won’t disturb you.
So i will solicit for your absolute maintenance of this unit and want you to treat it as your own, is that taken, I want you to keep it tidy all the time so that i will be happy to see it neat when i come for a check up. I do that once in a while.

As i’ve told you my name is Tomson Doyle-Michels and I’m a 49 years old military sergeant from Washington DC.
I have a lovely wife, Susane Michels and a 12 year old daughter, Mary.
Another member of our family is a 5 year old Labrador which we all love, so, I have no problem if you will keep pets.

Unfortunately, my work schedule don’t allow me to do any traveling for the next few months, so I will not be able to come and meet you personally for a while.

Since I’m here in Washington DC we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are asking for. I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the Keys in less than 2 days. The solution is provided by a company called Realtor.com, which will handle the payment and delivery of the Keys.
But this won’t affect you at all. I can make arrangements to rent the unit from Washington DC (on my expense of course).

If you want to know more about how this deal can work please get back to me ASAP and i will send you the details step by step.

All the best from Washington DC

Thank you!

Great,

And I have no doubt that I will treat the unit as my own, keeping it in order and all the necessary responsibilities. If we could schedule a showing soon I wold greatly appreciate that. So far, this seems to be the perfect opportunity for me. Feel free to send me the step by step details/ lease agreement/ showing possibility as soon as you have time.

Enjoy your evening!

Hello,

Nice to see you are still interested in our unit.

As I’ve told you in my previous emails, we are currently in Washington DC and sadly cannot meet you in person.
I can make arrangements to rent the unit from here through Realtor.com RealEstate agency, a company dealing specifically in international Rentals/Sales.
They are the ones who assisted us in finding a place to stay in Washington when we arrived here in January. We were very pleased with their services. In order to view the property and complete the lease process, you will need the keys and the pre-lease agreement.

Regarding Realtor’s agency terms of use, I will try to do a brief explanation on how they operate:

If you decide you want to continue our agreement, I will need a valid phone number from you, your full name with full address on where you want the keys & the lease agreement received. I will also need to know how many persons you intend to live, if any pets ( which by the way, pets are allowed with no extra fees ) and the move in date.

As soon as I receive the requested details, I will forward them to RealEstate agency so they can begin the process right away and send you the parcel with the keys and the agreement. You will receive their official invoices and notifications, containing important steps on how the lease agreement needs to be completed.
Regarding the payment, you will be given exact details on how to complete the deposit in order to confirm your booking.
The deposit will be held and insured by them until you inspect the property.
If you accept the property and sign the lease agreement, then the deposit will be forwarded to me.
If, by any reason, you do not like the property, your deposit will be refunded, with no further obligations to the agreement.

You will be given a 2-3 days inspection period from the day you receive the keys and contract. During this period you can take a decision. If you like the unit then we will make a direct rental contract.

So, by using Realtor’s services, our main advantages are:
You, as the tenant, have the chance to inspect the property in person before RealEstate agency actually pays me.
For me, as the owner, this is my insurance as my biggest concern is I must pay up front for their services and I need to be sure you are genuinely interested in renting the place.

If the agreement goes well, I would like the monthly rental price to be paid straight to my bank account ( beginning/end of each month ), whenever is convenient for you.

Looking forward to your decision.

Would it be possible to set up a skype/facetime/online conference appointment in order to formally meet one another as well as make sure that the agreement is discussed in person as well?

Looking forward to the parcel. We’ll be in contact.

Thank you!
