We have a rental house where the current tenants are moving out soon. I posted an ad on Craigslist to find new renters. Here is a response I got from some guy claiming to be in the UK. I just do not see what he could scam out of me unless he tried asking for bank information to wire money. Any thoughts? I am leaning towards ignoring him? Thanks for any advise.

Hello Mr Scott,

Thanks for your mail, i am indeed serious about renting this unit,and
i will be willing to offer you 2 months rent,and a year lease to start
with,plus the security deposit in order to secure this unit prior to
my arrival. Could you be kind enough to let me know what the
electricity/utility cost would be?. As i will really need to have this
unit for myself.You can send me the lease and application if only
available,to enable me to review it ahead of time. I would eventually
have it,fill it up and signed physically when i arrive. In my
opinion,appending signatories should be done properly ,and at best
This is an international situation . With this arrangement, my
financier in the states will be effecting your payment deposit to you.
I believe we can work together and ensure every arrangements that we
shall both execute in line with my taking up the tenancy should be
done accordingly to ensure we have a proper understanding. In view of
my work schedule, I'd want us to finalize basic arrangements. I will
arrive the united states in 12 days time.
If you require any specific information,please let me know or you can
call me on my cell phone, please dial as presented for international
calls .
My due regards,

Phone numbers could be numbers that would ding you huge amounts over and above the international dialing. Sounds fishy regardless.
