Question What's your favorite online scam?

I am unfortunately looking for housing again (I may talk about that in another thread, we shall see). anyway... I just got this back in response to a Craig's List posting that I had emailed to;

Hello,

Showers of blessing unto you and you entire household.My name is Chris Holmes the owner of the 2bedroom Condo you are making enquiry of.I once resided in the Condo with my wife and only daughter before me and my family decided to work for the lord.So presently i am based here in the West africa.My wife could not stay further cause she had to go for a surgery in Mississippi,Cause she has to visit an Otology/Neurotologist for sugery we want to give it out for rent and looking for a responsible person that can take good care of the Condo for us we are not after the money for the rent but want it to be clean at the time and the person that will rent it to take it as if it were its own. So for now, i am here in west Africa, our new condo and put all my worries off concerning the maintenance of the Home for, since i am not residing there for now.I left behind some Facilities and electonics which include the rent, and a DVD player, air conditioning, alarm system. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils, refrigerator-freezer, four-hob and oven, microwave,dishwasher and washing machine, My Computer Connected with Internet Acess Also the keys to the condo are right here with me, and the lease document. Which i can send to you after all necessary agreement has be accepted. Also i will like you to know that the rent charges is not really the issue,Hope you are okay with the price of ($850) with hydro,heat laundry facilities,air condition and so on,but your absolute maintenance of my Home is most important thing so will want you to get back to me with the Application form below.

Here is the Condo address xxxxxxx Drive, xxxxx CA xxxxxx .. Pls note that you will be viewing the condo from outside and won't be able to inspect the Interior because the keys and the documents to the Condo are with me here in Africa and It is located on a cool, quiet and safe neighbourhood.
