Autodraft = scammer! (by NE [PA]) Posted on: Mar 23, 2019 11:46 AM
Message:

A prospect viewed a unit, applied, was approved pending in-home. Did in-home and gave copy of lease to prospect. App approved yesterday and guys mom start blowing up my phone with text messages today claiming it's a scam because rent gets paid auto draft.

What part is the scam here? Haha. The physical house you looked at? The app? The app fee? The person physically coming to your house with a physical copy of the lease for you to review? The approved app?

I'm confused. Hahaha. --50.107.xxx.xxx

How embarrassing! The guy gave this mom your phone number. I would ignore her and ask him if he has any grown up questions? --99.203.xx.xx

Explain to him that your number is for tenants to be able to contact you for Landlord / Tenant issues only. Have HIM tell Mom to stop using it. Explain to him that HE is the one on the lease, and the ONLY one to whom you will communicate regarding the lease.

Block Mom's number. --68.10.xxx.x

She needs to complain to the car dealer, local grocery store, insurance agent about collecting funds in full but in reality keep showing the unit as long as no keys are out yet.

I would consider one conversation with mother to both assure her you are legit and explain she is not on the lease and you only deal with the named people on the lease so this phone call was a courtesy but not happen again. The other option is to call the prospect back and tell him to call off his mother or you will reconsider the lease since you only deal with those on the lease. Unfortunately I think this is becoming more typical of todayís parents. He may not even know she is doing this. Look at the parent bribery college scandal. Gone are the days of talking your child through how to handle a situation and then stepping back to let them solve it. --166.137.xxx.xx

They're called bulldozer parents. Just heard that term a few weeks ago. Apparently that's worse than helicopter parents. Apparently bulldozer parents plow away all obstacles from their child's path.

Guess we're raising some sheltered, completely useless people nowadays.

If we're ever thrust into really hard times these people will become entitled looters since they don't know how to accomplish anything. Wonder how his first day on the job is going to go? --108.69.xxx.xxx

I just heard that term yesterday as "snowplow parents" - same idea. Our pastor was using it in a humorous way in order to make a point. A friend, who was also the Kindergarten teacher for both of my kids, was sitting behind me - she leaned forward and whispered, "I was always thankful for a certain mother who did NOT behave that way!" --71.175.xxx.xxx
