Would you allow someone to come in and look around your house since they used to live there and their daughter was born there if they placed a message through your door? One woman was perplexed since she didn’t understand whether it was a hoax or a genuine past owner of the house. She shared her story and wanted to know if others would let the stranger look around, but the issue grew even more odd when she admitted she’d called the number they’d given and the line was dead, with no ability to leave a message. Read the story and let us know what you would have done.
I have just returned home and found a note from someone who says they used to live in my house. They are asking if I would allow them to show the house to their daughter who was born here. They are staying nearby for the next few days. They have given the years when they say they lived here which mean nothing to me.
I know how long the previous couple owned the house but not whether they lived here the whole time or rented the property out. My initial reaction was to ignore the note as I thought it was probably a scam of some sort. I then thought even if they are genuine and staying locally, I don’t want them in my house. There was a mobile number at the top of the note which I tried ringing to say nope not convenient, but the phone is turned off with no facility to leave a message.
I know I Am Not Being Unreasonable to not want random people wandering around my house but is this a scam I haven’t come across before now? I don’t want to spend the next few days on tenterhooks every time someone knocks at the door and nervous of opening it.
