  • That really sucks, I'm sorry. Sounded like a GREAT deal.
    Is there an address listed for him? I would try to go to him at his business address, and if I couldn't find him there, I'd find his home address!
    If you absolutely can't find him, contact the authorities.
    Do you have any copies of signed documents?

  • Do you know where he lives? You might go to the house and see if there's a note or something.

  • How long has it been since you last had contact with him?
    That really sucks,I'd be upset and concerned to. Don't give up, maybe there is good reason,maybe he 's in the hospital or something. You never know. You have the signed lease,right? If you can't reach him by the end of the week,go to the authorities. It could have been a scam artist. People can be so shady sometimes. That is horrible if that ends up to be the case. I really hope not. Good Luck,I hope he finally gets hold of you and everything turns out okay.

  • oh no tell me you gave a check --- if you know where owner lives do a drive by and stop by... If he's not there ask his neighbors just saying he's your landlord and you want to pay him rent -don't say anything else so you don't get slammed for badmouthing him...

    I'd do the same thing with the rental property -ask people around that property if they've seen him.

    Even if you paid with a money order you might still be able to cancel it.

    If he did run away with your money call the police and get a lawyer. Good luck!!!!!!!!!
