Looking for a recommendation for Jorge Verdin as a rental agent.  He posts various properties on FB but does not seem to own them or be associated with one of the management companies.  Please only specific answers regarding this person - not looking for general comments about how to rent.

Sorry, don't know this person but the same "MO" was, and maybe still is, being used in PV. Lots and lots of scammed supposed renters paid deposits and were met by the owners of these homes when they knocked and expected to see the rental agent. Buyer beware.

There are many online rental scams. One quite common one, all over the world, is that these scammers list places that they have gotten photos of from real estate sites. They list them as long term rentals, send inquirers long emails saying all sorts of made up nonsense, and that they will use Airbnb for the first month's payment. They say an Airbnb agent will meet them with keys and show them the place. Airbnb doesn't work like that, there are no agents. 

They send the inquirer to a fake Airbnb look-alike site ( the URL isn't an Airbnb URL, but the unsuspecting mark doesn't know that) and tell them to send $ to some bank account or through Western Union. If the mark falls for it, that's the end-they will never hear from the scammer again and they will not be able to get their money back.

You should always look for a rental through a reputable official rental site or rental agency.

This person had keys to the complexes and keys to the available apartments.  Asking only for information about him specifically.

You already met with him, or he just told you he has keys?
