Scam Description

I responded to a rental ad on rent spot.com. The person responded to my email saying that I was approved for the rental before even meeting me and sent me a rental agreement. I said that I needed to see the apartment before I sign the agreement or send any money. I was told that they lived in Kelowna and that if I sent the deposit and first months rent then they would give me the keys to the apartment. I did not send the money.! I want to make people aware of this because this ad is still up and I don’t want anyone to get scammed.
