Scam Description

They had an add for a studio appartment on facebook. When I asked to see the place thry told mr that I have to fill an application and pay $83 first and than I can see it. When I did that he told me that I will not see the place until I pay his attorney fees which are $150 so his attorney can show me the place, but I did not do it and asked for the money back because he said that the $83 are refubndable and I paid with zelle. When I asked for a refund the attorney told me that he will send me $200 and I will take the $83 and send him the $117 back and his excuse was that zelle minumem amount to send for Business is 200. I cslled zelle and that was not true and I asked for the.83 only and they never responded. I also notified facebook multiple times, but they did nothing and their add is still there.
