How have you had contact with him in the past? I would send the payment as you have in the past via certified mail, return receipt requested. Within the payment, I would ask for written verification if there is a new payee. Include in your letter a copy of the email and express your concern since there is no response to your inquiries that this could be a scam and you are trying to protect the landlord by proceeding in the manner that is dictated by the lease (which is a controlling legal document.)
