This is an excellent answer. But how long will it be until the old Richard returns?

: RUN AWAY, FROM THIS..........

: Either the apartment is Illegal, or the "landlord" is not really a
: landlord and will upscound with the money.... like trying to rent the
: apartment to 3 or 4 people so when they try to move in next month there
: is no apartment for rent.....SCAM!!!!

: Or he is not reporting the rent to the IRS, or he is in serious
: finacial trouble and will try and evict her in a couple of months for
: some mickey mouse reason


: : My daughter is about to rent an apt. in Brooklyn. The landlord wants a $4,000 deposit all in cash, and monthly rent in cash. Money orders or bank checks are not accepable. Is this a standard procedure? It makes us nervous. How do we evaluate the risk of this transaction? For us Vermont people, that's a lot of cash to give someone you don't know. Thanks for your advice.
