A Craigslist post for a one bedroom apartment in a prime Mission location for $1500/mo sounded too good to be true. But there was a phone number on the list, so at 9am on a Sunday morning in late September, I made a call.
A human named Lewis replied and asked me how fast I could do this. I literally jumped out of bed and within 30 minutes I was waiting in the rain on the sidewalk of Treat Avenue. Lewis wasn’t there, so I unlocked the fence and walked to the back of a hidden two-story apartment complex. Through a window, I saw Unit A was empty except for a bottle of hand sanitizer on the kitchen counter. I texted Lewis again, ready to move into my new home.
