BEWARE

Dr James Hatton. Rental propety scam.


kim johnston 8 years ago

lol... I had Made Goodwin going for a while. He also goes under a few other first names but ends in Madegood or madewin....I am getting some pretty pissy emails from all the ones I am exposing. Just a tip, don't post an expose under your email. They are posting all over the internet my email address and name and saying that I am a drug dealer. They are just scum.


kim johnston 8 years ago

if anyone wants a little payback - lead them on and tell them you will pay 6 months rent in advance along with a huge deposit. Tell them you have sent the money and give them a fake 10 number receipt number and then ask for the keys. They will go to Western Union 30 times a day looking for their money before they click on after a few days........ paybacks a bitch :)


mtm 8 years ago

Being the friend of someone whose name apears on the above list, I thought I'd share this. My friend was looking for an apt on Craigslist and found a too good to be true apartment. She exchanged identification information with the person. But once the person asked for money to be wired to Western Union in London, my friend wised up and sent nothing. Now there are warnings with my friend's name all over the place, including here. That person who tried to scam her is using my friend's name to scam others. So know that the above names aren't the real names of these people and you're spreading lies about the people who are these people. I understand you are trying to warn others, but it's very upsetting to the victims whose names are being used illegally.


plink 8 years ago Author

Thanks for your contribution mtm. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's situation. I'm glad she didn't send money though.

We do all realise the situation; that these Nigerians don't use their own names, instead they use the names and ID from people they have scammed in the past.

I was one of those people scammed and I'm expecting to see my name pop up any day now. I will be more than happy to add my name to the long list if it prevents someone from dealing with that scammer and losing money.

Isn't it better to warn people so that when there are enough warnings posted, people stop dealing with these scammers and hence they stop committing a crime under someone else's name?

I'm sorry that your friend feels exposed and upset about this but how else can we end this perpetual cycle?


mtm 8 years ago

i understand. but what happens when you actually try to do something legitimately online and can't because no one believes you are not a scammer? it really sucks cause my friend recently changed her name because she got married and is so excited about the new name and now there's all the crap out there about it. and it's a unique name too with almost nothing out there but the bad stuff.

what happened with you? have you seen your name out there yet? how long ago was your incident?


plink 8 years ago

mtm - I will take your friend's name off all my lists if you would like. Just send me her name to my email address - p_link@teachers.org

I got done a few months ago. Have a look at my other blog http://parishousingscamwatch.wordpress.com/shamele... for details.

I haven't seen my name out there yet but I'm sure it's being used somewhere - just don't which Craigslist site!! I just hope that because a scammer has my passport scan that I don't encounter problems trying to get in and out of the country.

Best wishes to your friend.

Don't thrust the person using the name Christina McQuillan (using chri_mcquillan03@yahoo.com), who recently posted a room for rent on craigslist, and asked for money (€400 rent and €600 security deposit) to be wired to Western Union in London before a rental agreement would be signed.

I just received an email scam on craigslist from

kelly lawrence

bishop.lawrence00@gmail.com He/She wanted to send me a certified check. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of this type of scam on craigslist and sent him/her my contact information (no bank information or anything), but then researched the e-mail address based on a tip and found that in fact it is a scam. I'm glad I caught it before I tried to cash the check.

Marie Millecamps tried to scam me in June 2007.

I was looking for a property in London upon finishing university. I saw the ad on easyroommate.com, the flat was in a lovely apartment building near the tower bridge, and the interior was beautiful, like a 5 star hotel.

I was curious, so emailed the poster asking how much the rent was, expecting it to be extortionate. They replied saying it was £400 per month. If you have ever lived in london, you will know that for a beautiful, central apartment, that is peanuts!

'Marie Millecamps' asked me to give more information about myself to 'see if we would get along', I just supplied bare minimum, my age, that I was a student who would be graduating soon and was currently looking for a job. Nothing substantial, just boring small talk! I then asked her to provide me with some details about her - if I would be living with her, how many people would be living in the property, etc etc.

She replied to my email saying "thanks, I think we would get along great! I will send you a tenancy agreement and contract soon." She did not respond to my questions in any way. I replied saying "Thanks, but I cannot sign a contract until I have viewed the property and you have answered my questions. I will be in London on Saturday, can I please view the property then?"

I got no reply until about 2 days later, when she just sent me an email with a tenancy agreement attached, asked me to sign it and send it to her. Again, I responded firmly saying that I would not sign a tenancy agreement for a property I have not viewed. That was the last I heard of her!

Please, people....USE YOUR COMMON SENSE!!! Do NOT sign a tenancy agreement or hand over money for a property you HAVE NEVER SEEN! And remember...if something seems too good to be true, it probably is!!!!

I've been recently searching for an apartment in Stockholm and found Christina McQuillan who pressumably was a 25 years old wedding planner living alone, and offered me exactly the same Diana posted some months ago: a double-bed room in her father's flat with a payment of 4000 SEK and 6000 SEK for a security deposit (400 and 600 euros, respectively) via western union to her mother, who lived in London. This person is now using this e-mail address; tymaroom01@yahoo.com.

I was completely new in looking for accomodance abroad and knew nothing about scammers. Fortunately, I changed my mind just before making a terrible mistake (although he/she has now my full name and an e-mail address; hope nothing occurs because of that...). He/she sent me a scanned copy of "her" passport, probably belonging to a victim, probably belonging to nobody.

Watch out and be very very careful...!!

Oliv 7 years ago

Hey Guys,

I'm really stunned after having read what you wrote about Christina McQuillian... Indeed, I'm looking for a place in Munich (Germany) and I found out her email address in a website which deals with the collocation... So I sent her an email , she replied me and introduced her as a wedding planner offering a great place in Munich dowtown, with furnitures, only for a rent of 400 Euros/month. She asked me a deposit of 600 euros if anyway I wanted to get her place... is she true ? Do I have to trust her ?


Tom 7 years ago

I too will confirm that

mollyswanson 7 years ago

Hi all,

This is the real Molly Ellen Swanson here! I got scammed while looking for a place to live in London - didn't send any money, but I did send off a scan of my passport before I figured out that it was a scam. Now I'm kicking myself because I know that scammer is using my name to trick others.

A few would-be victims looked me up on Facebook and I was able to warn them before they sent any money, but I thought I'd post here also.

Does anyone know if anything can be done about this? Anyone have any luck reporting to the authorities?


another victim 7 years ago

Actually molly ellen swanson is in touch with me now, She posted the exact same details for me. I guess she is not aware of the existence of this site. Thanks to all the people, i could get outa the trap after seeing this post. I was wondering if there's a way to get this scammer caught. I have no ideas as of now, people lemme know if anything can be done.

7 years ago

hi,

i have also been in touch with the person who pretends to be ellen swanson. i was wondering about the people who already fell into the trap..to whom did you send the money, then? because, when someone opens up a bank account, he has to verify that he is the person on the id... so with the name of the recipient, it should be possible to trace back to the scammer?

and still i don't understand: what was written in the contract? did it look authentic and did it have the address on it?

beware everyone, and thanks for this great page and the solidarity :)

Ruth 7 years ago

I am totally shocked reading this all. I just found out yesterday that this is a fraud by contacting the law firm that "Molly Ellen Swanson" told us her lawyer worked for. This scam is crossing borders, she is now contacting exchange students from Germany looking on Gregs list for an apartment in NY. My daughters friend from Germany is looking for a place to live and I am so glad he asked us for assistance(mainly because he didn't understand everything she wrote) and I thought that we better check this all out. I feel so stupid now that it took two weeks for us to find out the truth. When she first contacted us I goggled just "her" name and absolutely nothing came up but a birth record and I thought she was okay. Today I put Swanson and gregs list fraud together in Google an all this came up. Her "lawyer" named Edgar L. Jones, in Dallas must be her partner in crime and I bet she lives in Dallas too. The only reason we didn't get scammed is that I couldn't find that lawyer listed anywhere and I got suspicious. "Her” passport makes you think this has to be real and I feel so bad for the real Molly having her info out there. I don't understand why this can't be stopped. Molly if you read this you need to go to the police and report it, your good name is being used and folks are scammed.


Ruth 7 years ago

I just looked through my e-mails and noticed that one of the e-mails she sent came from : Boyke Ramdat <boyke84@gmail.com

Could that be her real name? Did she slip and use her other e-mail not used for scams? The name sounds like she is from the Netherlands.

Hi,

Ive been emailing Molly Swanson too and she's said exactly the same things to me - its a real shame because we actually turned down another flat because hers sounded so promising - just shows, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Thanks to everyone for posting though because it assured my suspicions.

A note to the real Molly Swanson ---- she emailed me a photocopy of what i guess is your passport, I can send this to you if you add me on facebook (Lucy Blow, London) i'm sure you could press charges for doing that?!

This is the last message she sent me

Thanks for your email, you sound so friendly and nice. I would have loved to meet you first before we proceed, but I am very busy at this time as im marketing my company product. I have lots of people asking for the rooms but i want to rent my room out for like minded people, you'll have to act very fast if you really want to rent my room. I'm here in Portsmouth,im marketing some of my company product,and i won't be back until 2 weeks.But,i will not allow that to stop your viewing and moving in as i will be sending you the apartment keys and necessary documents but all these will be after the security deposit payment for the apartment so that i can be sure that you are serious about renting the room. I understand and accept that you have to see the apartment before you make any payment, but you need to be considerate as well. You will make the security deposit and a month rent 760 pounds to any of your Girl friend in London through any Western Union Money Transfer outlet around you, i will only need to confirm the payment with Western Union Receipt given to you during the transfer processing so that i can be sure you are capable and fully prepared to rent the room and not dealing with another time waster. Then, i will have the keys and other necessary documents couriered to you with a next day delivery as i will not be able to leave Portsmouth because my families needed my present here, If you can do that i will be convinced that you are serious and capable of meeting the demands for i can bet you will like the property and i hope you make a nice flatmate. When i return,Your girl friend that you send the money to will go and collect the money back, that is when you will pay me in cash and sign the rental agreement in the presence of my lawyer. I make the suggestion for the security of both of us because i cannot tell you to pay for a property you've not viewed and i also need to know that i am not dealing with a time waster because it cost a little to advertise and deal with some kind of people.The Western Union charges will be deducted from the first month rent you will be paying me in cash or given to you on the spot when we meet on our first day. I have attached my international passport photo page as well as my driver's license with this email because you will need to print it out and taken with the lease agreement form to the apartment when you are moving in.If there is anything you don't get right,Please get back to me right now,we can chat on msn chat,you can add me to molly.swanson01@hotmail.com so that we can get to talk more better about the rent.Hoping to hear from you soon,Cheers,Molly

Watch out for Claire Robson, too! She pretends to be British national living in Amsterdam, who is currently living in Paris. So, she requires the payment of rent and deposit via wire tranfser, and promises to send keys and leasing agreement by post! When I asked her for the full address of the flat in Amsterdam in order to have a look at it, she refused and responded that may be I am not the tenant she is looking for. She uses the e-mail address: crobson630@gmail.com, and she has adds in different sites including easyroommate, and expats.

I'm so glad I checked this webpage. Molly Ellen Swanson almost got me but I knew something was off with how low the rent was for the apartment she claim she had in Manhattan. She was renting out a room in a 3 bedroom apt at 635 W 42nd Street in New York for $700 dollar a month. I looked up that address and those condo's go for well over a million dollars. I knew than that this girl is either stupid or a scammer. Thank God I googled her name and Facebook her. I could find anyone on Facebook which is very unusal these days. And as soon as I google her this webpage came up.

Anyone reading this please avoid this dumb ass lady, she is not a very bright scammer.

H. Morocco 7 years ago

Hello all,

Andres Tina has been trying to scam me as well... She(or he) insisted that I would send her money through Western Union, which I can't do because I live in Morocco (thank god ;) )

She (or he) sent me amazing, professional looking pictures (like those of luxurious hotels), and

didn't even want my friend to visit the appartment on my behalf;

didn't want me to call on the phone;

didn't want me to send a contract that proves I can pay;

said "this is NY please, I should verify your financial ability before you can visit";

said she is a marine doctor (travels a lot blablabla)

I told her that nowhere in the world you would send money before you get to visit the appartment...

Be careful!

Jacek Nowac is a scammer. When they start talking about his/her lawyer and that you have to pay through Western Union, you can be sure it´s a scam.

Hello,

My name is Mr Jacek Nowaczyk ,originated from Poland .I'm a student but also work as

SIA in Deutsche Bank here in Scotland.( www.db.com ).I felt quite safe renting you

my apartment from your mails..Actually, I inherited the apartment from my late

Father whom i lost in a motor accident together with my Mother last year May.After

the incidence,I have been using the flat rent for my schooling here in

Scotland...Renting you my flat is not a problem on my part but just that I will not

be able to come over myself to handover you the keys but I can post you the keys via

DHL courier services.I asure you of door step delivery..ok.

This is because of my bad experience I had two months ago.I travelled down from

Scotland here to meet some fake tenants without confirming their deposit

payment.Upon my arrival, Irealised they have no money ready for the rent but they

wanted to rent the apartment.I wasted my money and time.Since then I have decided

and also been advised by my Lawyer not to meet any tenant without confirming the

receipt of his or her refundable security deposit payment alongside with the fully

signed legal documents that will be forwarded to you to sign by my Lawyer.You will

have to make the deposit payment via western union money transfer and attach the

receipt to the fully signed legal documents for confirmation and proper legal

documentation by my Lawyer..The legal documents are meant to secure both I and you

under the law and to protect your fund incase you decide not to rent my apartment

again..

One more thing I would like to solicit for the absolute maintainance of my apartment

and want you to take good care of it as your own property..So let me have the

details below for the legal contract documents:

Name in Full..

Address...

Nationality...

Passport Id number...

Date of move in and out...

Phone number....

Sex..................Male or Female.

Details about my apartment.

My apartment address: 11 Mercatorplein, Amsterdam 1057BX, Netherlands.

Monthly Rent: 600euro[it includes all bills like broadband Internet,Land line

phone,washing machine and Electricity.etc.]

Refundable Security Deposit:1000euro

I have written about the property scammers over at my London Is Cool blog on numerous occasions trying to make people aware of the tricks that these scum scam artist get up too.

People need to start using their common sense, why would anybody part with money via Western Union or MoneyGram, for a property that they have never seen before. The bottom line is that a legitimate landlord would never take payment for their rent via money transfers, it just doesn’t happen.

People need to get real and use their common sense, the scammers are so obvious.

Yi Ting Tan 6 years ago

Hey people!thank you so much for this website! I was contacted through http://www.share-accommodation.net/hobart-house-sh... yesterday about a really good apartment in Hobart, Tasmania which only costs A$400 per month including utility bills. I was very taken in by the gd location and the gd price and exchanged a few emails with a Marie Jacqueline who is supposedly a French citizen working for Jeppesen Boeing company, and she's currently in the UK doing supervisory work.

After confirming my interest in her apartment as well as giving her some personal details, her 'lawyer' with strong French accent immediately called and told me they're going to send me a tenancy agreement asap and I can view the apartment once I send them the security bond and advance rent which amount to A$1000 to a Western Union account.

I felt very very uneasy as I felt the agreement is very informal (8 pages long, inconsistent phrasing of words). I am not a law student, but I tried to google the tenancy act mentioned in the agreement (Assured Shorthold Tenancy as defined in Section 19A of the Housing Act 1988) and realized it was actually a UK law! Tasmania is goverened by Tasmanian tenancy law naturally. And from the following website: http://www.rentalagreementsdiy.com.au/tenancy_laws...

I found out that Tasmania prohibited up-front fees for entering into, renewing, extending or continuing a residential tenancy agreement. Also, the security bond is only supposed to be 4 weeks of the rent, not 1.5 months of the rent as stipulated in the agreement.

I tried googling the name of the lawyer "Aaron Zuloaga" and his law firm "George & associates" to no avail. It just made me even more uneasy about this whole thing.

After I cut and pasted some parts of the agreement I received and googled it, I found your website and I really thank God that this confirms my suspicions!

My only worries now are they may use my name to scam others, especially those from Asian countries. Anyway, please please add "Marie Jacqueline" and "Aaron Zuloaga" to your list of scammers. And really, beware of emails from "mmarthe74@yahoo.com"!!

P/S: don't believe it if some imposter used my name to offer houses to rent too. It's unlikely I would become a tenant anytime soon. =)

She's send me pictures of an apartment and the price was very good. Too good in my opinion. So I ask her questions which she never answered. She kept asking me to fill out my personal information so she could create the lease.

I finally asked her phone number and googled it and found this info.

Her English is quite horrible and she does keep asking for your personal information to create the lease. I haven't even seen her apartment and room in person!

Hello Sharon,

Thanks for your mail. You can only view the building of my apartment because the building manager Mr Mark or Faruk won't allow you into my apartment without payment receipt confirmation from me upon signing the lease agreement.

I would like you to make reservation for the room, so that you can have a place to arrive at, the processes are not much, you only need to sign a document, then you need to have some documents to yourself as proof of assurance, then we proceed to the payment level. I would be willing to make available a scanned copy of my international passport, driver's license and my certificate of ownership for your own record too.

Get back to me with your details below so as to prepare the Lease Agreement.

Full name:

Present Contact address:

Your Phone number:

Date of birth:

Move in date:

Your intended duration of stay:

I would be expecting to read from you very soon.

Best Regard,

Lisa.

Hi Saccha,

Thanks heaps for the post re: Lisa Temuana. I was looking for an apartment in Adelaide for my cousin and she sent me an email which was very similar to the one you posted.

She sent me a NZ passport and a QLD driving licence which was very odd indeed. Did you receive the same documents?

Thanks heaps again!

In the beginning, I didn't realise that they are scammers as I need a room so bad, but when I received their replies with similar information that all of them are currently in London, I suspect there was something wrong here. Especially when I negotiated, they directly approved it. Finally I searched the addresses of the apartments they offered and I found the pictures and the prices are totally different from the Domain.com.au.

I wanna ask all of you, what should I do if I've told them my personal data, such as my current work, my university, my previous address in Melbourne, as well as my reference. I've also sent Lisa my scanned ID (student card), as I at that time I haven't realised that they made me fool and I was too excited with the room the offered.

Hi there

I am looking for an apartment in Adelaide (Jan 2010) and I too was contacted by Lisa Temuana - with very similar postings to Siti and Saccha. Thanks so much to everyone for posting these and informing me of these scams. It is terrible to think people do such things. Below is the initial email from Lisa

Hello,

How are you doing today? I have enclosed pictures of my apartment in the attached below and do get back to me asap if you are still interested in renting apartment or not. Looking forward to hear from you.

Thanks,

Lisa.

I appreciate your quick response. It's nice hearing back from you. My apartment has a 24 inch flat screen Tv on the wall/dvd/cd player, fully air conditioning including washing machine/ Dishwasher,telephone line, high speed internet facilities, balcony, Dryer, microwave, it also has a Private entrance, Private Bath, Phone jack, TV, Cable jack etc. There is also garage for your car park and garden.

More so, i just wanna bring it to your notice that there a lot of people here in looking for vacant space but they are not finding it easy cuz of the voluminous people looking for Room/flat. So they grab any vacancy they see...there are ways you can make a reservation for the vacant space if you want me to hold the room down for you and if you also want me to erase the advert online meaning to make it unavailable for people. So let me know your opinion asap.

NB:

I request that you send me a scanned copy of your Id for reference and if possibly copy of ID or INTL Passport or Driver's License as i need to know more about you before renting the property to you. And again will be very much appreciating if you could advice me of your work place and what you do for a living.

Hello,

Its good to hear from you again..You seem nice and interesting,i'll like to know you more and see how things works between us.You can come by and view my flat but I'll need you to understand somethings..Due to recent inconveniences caused by wannabe tenants who approached me for a viewing. i have decided to know how serious people i will be taking for a view. I'm sorry if this look some how to you,but you will have to understand that all those i took for the viewing have always promised to pay but all to no avail. Out of no time i still find time to schedule a viewing and after all...I get cooked up with stories you cant imagine. For me to know you are capable of renting my spare room,you will need to assure me bcos im presently in Portsmouth marketing some of my company product and you know its a little journey and stress to come down to London.But i could let my cousin meet you and show the apartment,so i will need to know how serious you are before my cousin taking you for a viewing.Let me know what you think.

I'll be looking forward to hear from you soon,

Cheers,

Molly.

Hi everyone, I found this useful information in order to report these people:

If you’ve wired money to a scam artist, call the money transfer company immediately to report the fraud and file a complaint. You can reach the complaint department of MoneyGram at 1-800-MONEYGRAM (1-800-666-3947) or Western Union at 1-800-448-1492. Ask for the money transfer to be reversed. It’s unlikely to happen, but it’s important to ask. Then, file a complaint with the FTC. Visit ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261

To have more details about how to stop it check the Federal Trade Commission web site: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/al...

mikka maus 6 years ago

Anybody that offers you a large sum of money for cashing a check for them and hopes that you are honest enough to give them back their part of the check has got to be a fake. Would you ever just send a stranger a million dollar check and ask them to cash it and take 10,000 for themselves and send you the rest? If somebody has a million dollars, they could afford to not be in such a bind and to also have one of their own friends cash the darn check. ITS A FAKE!

I was also contacted by several scammers after joining share-accommodation.net. Here are the list of names:

Nancy Wink (wink_nancy@yahoo.com.au)

Onyema Nikki (onyenikki@hotmail.com)

Catherine Fowler (meetkate79@gmail.com)

Flikinger Dianna (lactation1980@yahoo.com)

I was so excited receiving their email and seeing lovely photos of their apartment in Melbourne CBD, with unbelievably low prices at $600AUD inclusive of all utilities and even free parking.

I was about to rent a room from Nancy Wink when something told me it was suspicious. She claimed that the rent comes with free off-street parking, which does NOT exist in Melbourne CBD! Anyone who has lived there or even visited knows... there are NO free off-street parking in Melbourne. I guess she didn't know this fact... which is why i googled her address and found this site.

Then all the other mails and names fell into pieces. They all share the same commonality: THEY ARE ALL IN THE UK!

So I suggest people be aware of mails like this. Don't just rent a place without seeing it or researching it. It's way more worth it to spend a bit staying in a hostel in the city you intend to stay, then look for a decent landlord!

I'm so glad I found this site! It's a life saver!!!!!!

Christy Chow 6 years ago

I'm so glad I found this website!

As I joined share-accomodation.net,

Kim Lee , Nancy Wink and ian Benjamin emailed me about the nice apartment they're offering (at only A$600 - 800 per month).

They had the same stories in their emails - that they're in UK / South America at this moment and unavailable to show me the apartment. and they are not answering most of my questions (the exact address of the property, or if the washing machine and dryer are coin operated). I guess they're afraid to answer any of those questions cause the fraud might be exposed..

Fortunately I felt suspicious after getting the same stories from these emails and decided to google them up!

I'm so shock that I become one the victims on this scam.. Seriously doubt if share-accomodation.net is a good website..

Quote from ian Benjamin's email:

Currently am not around and that is why we are renting out the apartment in the first place... I am currently in England due to my recent job promotion but inspection can be arranged as i travel with a diplomatic passport from my work place,so viewing can be arranged by Wednesday afternoon by 4:30pm ..Regarding the proof of cash your bank details or statement of account is not needed all i need is a proof to show that you have $1400 in cash at hand with you..that can be done via western union money transfer but charges will be applied which i will refund back to you on Wednesday.

After this i will forward you a minimum lease contract for 3months and you can read and sigh where appropriate.

NB: You can move in with your luggage on the inspection day as well.

Quote from Nancy Wink's email:

It's a great pleasure reading from you again. I'm so glad to realize that you are a very honest and straight forward person. I really appreciate it. I know quite well that we'll really enjoy each others company sharing the flat. I have decided to rent the apartment to you so i hereby ignore other person interested, so i want you to ignore any person offering you room for rent. i have make arrangement for you to rent the room.

I make a deposit of my spare keys at the DHL OFFICE. So that anyone who is really interested should collect the keys and move in after making payment, since I can't entrust anyone with my apartment keys.I would make available a CONTRACT LEASE form for you to sign as soon as possible.

Quote from Kim Lee's email:

I'll like to inform you that both rooms are still vacant and the rent for each room is $600 per month while the bond is $300 and the rent includes all utilities bills and internet, so you do not need to pay any extra bills when you move into the apartment. I'm only giving out my rooms just to put an end to my loneliness in the apartment and not because of the rent price or anything. So i guess that's the reason why my rooms are so cheap. I'm presently South America due to the nature of my job, I believe you have seen the pictures, so i'll like you to choose the exact room you would like to occupy.

...However you can still move in while am still away, because i deposited the Spare Keys of the apartment with the DHL Office over there in Melbourne so if you really want to move in i will be wiling to send you the Reference Number that you will present to the DHL Officers so as to get the spare keys that i deposited with them or better still i will like you to send me your present address so that i can have it sent directly to you DHL 24hours Express Delivery Service and you will get the Keys and Lease Tenant Agreement Document within 24hours.

I will be like you to get back to me as soon as possible so that your lease document can be prepare and you can proceed by making your payment directly into my lawyer's bank account over there in Australia, so that the room would be fully reserved for you till you are ready to move in. I will give you the reference number to pick up the keys immediately you have made your payment into my lawyer's bank account and you can move in at your own convenient time.

I have wasted there time, use a second free email accout, play their game, have them send you a check to a large business, ( they will sign the fedex or ups )

use a fake name

address to a large company

they will send a cashiers checke to the info you give them

then after a while the will email wanting you to send them the extra money,

I have waisted three scamers so far, it cost them money to send you the fake check.

First guy I stopped contact with him.

Another guy I lost the check and could he send another.

AHH i love the collective knowledge of the internet.

ellen.swanson94@gmail.com

Seems she is back at it. She has contacted me here in Ontario to purchase my motorcycle..... I wonder how this is going to go down. I have had scammers attempt stuff with me before (I send them money to purchase my bike) ...

OF COURSE! i never did it. Cause lets face it, that does not make sense.

Good site, and good info. This is why you ALWAYS Google people BEFORE dealing with them online!

Hi there,

Recently I have been contacted by CHRISTINA CMQUILLAN - christina88_1983@yahoo.com. For wiring the deposit and advance rent to her mother in London! Hoax again. But I'm scared she/he will be using my name next. Is there anything that I can do? I have not fallen for that and have been taking her for a round. Told her I will inspect, make payments and first read the agreement etc. I'm keeping them on their toes making them believe I will make the payments. But now that they have my name, could you guys please guide me. Not using my real name here, just incase this hoax person reads it. It's my nickname that I have posted here.

Thanks :)

Hello,

I got your resume and it has been reviewed and i did appreciate it,so I will give this a GO!

I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable to work very well and with good understanding.

I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point,as I am presently in Canada and i will be back in Three Weeks time.

I think you're the right person for this position,Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules,it's a part-time work from home and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others,so it's a little difficult judging the exact number of hours you'll be doing per week.If you can manage your time properly,this job may even give you some extras while you do something else on the side.As I have said, I'd want us to get a head START with things as soon as possible.I do have lots of works piled up presently and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with,I hope we can meet up with the workload eventually.

I'm online most of the time as I am hard of hearing so I prefer we contact each other through E-mails,but if there is need for me to call, I will be glad to do that.I am glad you are willing to work with me and i promise to be a good boss. I am also glad on the commitment in working.I have been checking my files and what i would want you to do for me this week is to run some errands out to some of the orphanage home, I do that every month.A payment in form of a Cashier Check/Money Order will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i have some lists to email you once you received the funds,You will make some arrangements by buying some stuff for the kids in the Orphanage at any nearest store around you so you can mail them out.

i almost got scammed, a person calling themselves patricia shannon, was "selling" a 2001 dodge 4x4 on craigslist for $2900 and claimed to have won it in her divorce and didn't have a license so she didn't need it. she only gave an email address, when i contacted her about the truck she said she wanted to use ebay vehicle protection program, she sent me a fake ebay page saying i could only use western union and i was supposed to send it to tyler martins in new york, They site looked just like an ebay page, but when i went on ebay to check it out they said to never use western union and then i knew it was fake. I typed the vin number of the truck into google and the same truck was on like thirty different sites for sale same pictures same vin and everything, but different location and different sale amounts watch out for this truck, the vin # is 3b7kf236x1g236283 i don't know who really owns this truck but i feel sorry for u if u ever try to sell it


Mireia Blasi 6 years ago

Hi over there.

I am a victim too. I'm from Spain and had to travel to Australia. Someone called Bridget Kathleen mchug stole me 800Euros.

She contacts you by share acommodation site. She starts saying:

Hello,

I saw your Advert on share-accommodation that you need accommodation in Sydney..... I have two rooms available in my flat. The apartment is situated at 57 York Street, Sydney, Sydney CBD 2000, Australia. Wynyard station is just a 5 minute walk away and the International Airport can be reached via direct freeway access in easy 20 minutes. Distance from CBD is 0kms. A room is only 550 AUD per month Including Utility bills. You can write me back for more details and pictures of the flat.

Hope to read from you soon.

-------------------------

I was so exited about having such a good answer and because of the trip, I just gave this person ( I don't really think she is the person she says she is... Kate Mchugh might be also a victim) my money.

Right now she or he has my passport and ID. So please, if someone contacts you as Mireia Blasi, don't belive her!! I don't have a room to rent at all!! If not, ask her for the telephone number, you will see, she never will give it to you but will try to pull you to pay.

She is using 2 email accounts.

katemcchugh@hotmail.com

Bridget Mchugh

She/he is a scamm/Fraud!!

Never give money if you don't know that person!

Hope this post can help somebody not to be scammed again. There is still a lot of trash in the world...

This person (or, these people) is doing the rounds of the globe. What procedures are actually in place in our respective countries to actually act on this issue?

I thought it was pretty obviously a scam.

I received email from Nancy Wink just this afternoon. I didn't disclose any confidential information, simply some brief info about myself - after googling a little, found that it was a scam. Beware! they are watching the newly posted ad on share-accomodation so closely. Never give them a chance.


josety 6 years ago

Beside Nancy Wink (wink.nancy@gmail.com), another lady named Julie Passe Fanny (julie.passe@gmail.com/fanny.julie20@gmail.com) is also a scammer, she wrote a little lengthy about herself, tried to convince, but the framework of the contents, i.e. they are willing to send the keys by mail... currently not in the country... will right away draft out the tenancy agreement... are THE SAME. Beware!!

This guy is also Lisa Temuana lol. He sent me similar emails under 2 different names and a little bit of googling showed that they are scammers. Lisa Temuana is certainly getting popular here. BTW try not to use your real name on that shareaccomodation site. It is filled with scammers and id thieves.

Edward Harrinson

Hello,

How are you doing today? I saw your profile on share-accomodation, i have enclosed pictures of my apartment in the attached below,My Apartment Comprises of two bedroom with built-in wardrobe and storage, living/dining room with settee, table & chairs, television stand ( television not supplied / galley kitchen with double-oven cooker, fridge-freezer, microwave, shower-room/toilet... high speed internet facility high speed inter , toilet and bath is ensuite with the room, There is also garage for your car park and garden.

More so, i just wanna bring it to your notice that there a lot of people here in looking for vacant space but they are not finding it easy cos of the voluminous people looking for Flat/room. so they grab any vacancy they see...there are ways you can make a reservation for the vacant space if you want me to hold the flat down for you and if you also want me to erase the advert online meaning to make it unavailable for people. So let me know your opinion asap.

Room located at 55 Wakefield Street Adelaide SA 5000, Australia

My apartment is close to school, close to shops, close to transportation.

Rent for room is $500Aud per month and Bond is $500Aud.

hey guys, thanks everyone so much for uncovering these people, you saved us some money, I'm sure! We received similar e-mails from Lisa Temuana (fairlistemm@hotmail.com) and Nancy Wink (wink_nancy@yahoo.com.au), they acted exactly like they did with everyone here, asking for money, being very helpful in everything except refusing to give any information about the house, about themselves. This was on http://www.share-accommodation.net, immediately after we made there an account! It all seemed too good to be true, so I decided to investigate a little bit, therefore I found you! Thanks again and all the very best!!

I have had personal experience with debbie phillips, she used to run Equitable lending here in pittsburgh, she was my land lord for sometime before i realized she was a charlitan (And forgive my spelling I am a dyslexic but i will do the best i can ha) when my roomate and i were on a joint lease i was paying my rent and wasn't informed for MONTHS that my roomate had not been paying his, she never contacted him and instead began to call threating me with eviction and court, so i paid the sum of 2000 to her (shoreing up the funds in under a month no less) then when all was said and done at the end of my lease i learned that she was being accused (and eventual pled guilty too) wire fraud, she would lie about all the money her lenders had to secure loans and the like from banks. well aparently all she was fined was around 4000 if i remember properly. at the end of my lease with this terrible woman, i ended up not getting my security deposit back from her, as she stated there were increadibly large repairs that i was at fault for in addition to accuseing me of stealing a rug and window ac...... No reciepts ever showed up and i ended up having to take her to court. She ended up skipping all the court dates and actualy moved! so now even though i won 2200 in court from her she will forever remain a deadbeat to me i am sure, so while i will never get the money i am owed by her .... hopefully anyone else out there will be able to avoid interaction with her due to helpful pages like this!

So a friend of mine called the laywer company and they told him that they never made a contract with a Nancy Wink! So be careful!!!!!!


Tracy 6 years ago

I've been looking on craigslist to find an apartment in upstate New York, and more than one request for more information about an apartment has met with the same response. If an e-mail is from julia.mcshea@hotmail.com or from Mary Jones (jones@managedwel.com), it's a SCAM. I got the exact same e-mails from both, for different apartments.

This is the e-mail they sent:

First and foremost, thank you for your interest in the home. I am available to show the house this week if that fits your schedule. Just to give you a little more information about the home, the water, trash and garbage are paid by us. The security deposit can be paid in 2 installments if money is tight. (I know how that can be).

The house has a fenced in backyard and we do allow pets. The deposit per pet is a one time payment. The house includes a washer and dryer, and we pay for lawn care so the renter does not have to cut the grass. There is NO application fee.

I do require that all applicants and additional renters who will be living in the home complete a creditcheck to ensure their eligibility. I have so many people apply for homes that I have to make sure they are qualified renters before I show the property. This ensures neither of us will be wasting our time.

It is okay if you have bad credit (trust me). We just check to make sure that you don't have several evictions on your record. (We won't rent if you have 3 or more evictions on your record).

I also had to recently stop giving out the exact address of rental properties before I am able to show them because last time I did that the house was vandalized (I will be glad to send you the address right after your reply) I assure you though that this is a very safe neighborhood. I actually lived in this home for 2 years (very cozy).

As soon as you can, please click and go to the secure website link below to complete the credit check: (takes about 30 seconds) Once you complete, I'll call you.

Click Here for Credit Check

This process turns some people off, so I completely understand if you decide not to complete them. In that case, good luck with your home search. I just want to be honest with you up front about our process, which does a good job of protecting us from ineligible renters and scammers.

If you are truly interested in proceeding, Let me know when this is done and we can then work out the time and date to go see the home. Email me back once you are done. (Make sure to include a valid phone number. I usually call within 6 hours of submitting for your credit check. Then I can forward you the address and we can set up a time to tour the home).

If eligible you will also be sent an email with my office number so we can set up a time to go see the house and discuss any other questions or concerns you may have.


Tracy 6 years ago

Any e-mail about an apartment for rent from nabingerchris@yahoo.com is a scam. He's in Nigeria and asks you to fill out a whole lot of information, and of course you can't see the place until he gives you the keys, which he won't do until you mail him money.


Kate 6 years ago

Thank you very much for everyone who posted on this website, I've nearly felt on the scam from Mary Jones , it seems she's working on Gumtree offering a flatshare in London, i copy the email below:

Thanks so much in your interest in renting my apartment. The apartment is three bedrooms flat and i'm renting out two rooms because im the only staying in the flaat presently,the rooms have good size..they also have private bathrooms, a sound system, bedspread, in the sitting room there is a plasma tv, internet access, Newly refurbished to a high standard a modern kitchen with all new appliances, central heating, tasteful bespoke lighting, washing with dryer machine, microwave oven and a parking space.The bedroom is fully furnished..it also has private bathroom and you will not need to share with anyone,and also as a deck, bedspread and there is also wireless high-speed broadband and there's parking space for cars,as well as the siiting,there is a plasma TV,

The apartments is situated at 27, Redan Place, Bayswater, London W2 4SA (CENTRAL LONDON), quiet but very safe street in the heart of London. There are tube stations within walking distance from the flat: Bayswater is one of the most attractive and lively areas of West/Central London.Its right on Queensway itself (opposite Whiteleys) and close to all of the numerous restaurants on that street as well as numerous bus stops going in all directions of London, and most of them 24-hours. The transportation links are unbeatable, but most parts of London are also close enough to go by foot in under 20 to 25 mins, and around the corner along Westbourne Grove. The trendy bars of Notting Hill are also within short walking distance. Queensway Tube (Central Line) and Bayswater Tube (Circle and District lines) are both are less than 7 minutes walk away.

Located(ideal for an early morning jog), and the shopping area is very short walk away, almost as you turn out of the road.

For Shops:There are many grocery stores located within 2 mins walking distance, including a small Costcutter, small and large Sainsbury's,as well as Canary which has multiple restaurants and fresh food stores. Besides that, Euston Station or Tottenham Court Road also offer many other kinds of stores

I've attached pictures of the flat and i hope you will like it as much.The rent is very reasonable at only £360 per month Including All taxes, bills, and wireless broadband internet access are included in the rent and £400 refundable security deposit for the apartment.

About me,My name is Mary Lauren Jones,i was born in Washington, USA, I'm single, 29 years of age, i work as a Consultant in the company i work for, I am a friendly, easy going and enjoy good conversation but I also value silence, Like to think all differences that can be resolved in partnership.

I didn't get scammed on craigslist but on tosublet.com Iwas a victum of the western union crap. After I wired the money she said that I had to pay for a tenancy id, renters insurance, and gov taxes....before I get my keys which she failed to mention in the lease and before. Does anyone know if I actually have a lease if I could still get the room? If not any other suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

ATTENTION EVERYONE! : If you have ever been scammed or have any information regarding a possible scammer YOU NEED TO CONTACT THE FBI and make a report. There are thousands of scammer victims out there including myself and the only way to catch these scammers is if enough people report it to the FBI or else they won't pay much attention to it. I recently got scammed by a man who introduced himself as "Dr. William Phillps", email: willphillps102@gmail.com and said he was a fossil hunter and he was coming to the states to exchange fossils with museums and was interested in renting out my apartment. He asked if we take care of his furniture delivery charges, long story short my father lost over $3,000. I have done everything I can but am determined to catch these a-holes, though I can't do it on my own. Please, if you have been vitimized by these scammers, you can contact the FBI or you can go to this website and file a report: WWW.IC3.gov ,this website is partners with the FBI. Every report makes a difference. Last but not LEAST!, never send money via western or any form of payment to anyone off the internet. If you're not sure then its better to be safe then sorry!

Kathleen Bridgett Mchugh and Emily Brown!! It's the same person. Both sent me messages about renting rooms, both messages had the same typos, and both were asking for a scanned copy of my international passport and drivers license. I think NOT!!

WARNING: MARY LAUREN JONES!

I just got the "too good to be true" response from a Mary Lauren Jones. It was for a room in a shared apartment $700, and although the reply was very thorough, it was also too perfect for the location. I googled the same address and found a studio apt. renting for $3500/mo.

Here's "her description:"

My name is Mary Lauren Jones,i was born in Washington, USA, I'm single, 29 years of age, i work as a Consultant in the company i work for, I am a friendly, easy going and enjoy good conversation but I also value silence, Like to think all differences that can be resolved in partnership. I love meeting people, having a great sense

of humor and I'm always up for some fun. I'm saying that I also like to chill out and enjoy the good things in life. I am looking to live with clean and neat flatmate.

An actual person named Lauren Jones is a consultant for Mary Kay cosmetics, therefor I worry that my name too will be used at some point seeing as it has happened to some people in the posts above.

DO NOT TRUST MARY LAUREN JONES!


Linda 6 years ago

Indeed: MARY JONES IS A SCAM!

I am so glad that I did some research here before I transfered my deposit for renting a room on 27 Redan Place. As mentioned it was just "too good to be true", but when I told her that I didn't want to pay through Western Union Transfer she told me to pay to her_lawyers_secretary's_bank account. How weird isn't that?

So: DON'T TRUST MARY JONES!

WARNING

HANNAH AND HERMAN JOHN "experience the difference"

they tried to rent a studio in brooklyn, new york.

I went to talk to the doorman of the house, but they doesn't exist!!

they suppposed to be in Uk.

I searched their name on internet, but noone of this webiste come up..

I already sent my Id Scan, what can I do now???? go to the police?

they didn't use it for anything...but I'm afraid.

they remove the post on craigslist the first email was like that:

got your response to our ad stating your interest in our apartment located at 85 Livingston Street, Brooklyn NY 11201. Interior: 850 sq. ft. (approx.) Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights.

The apartment is owned by me and my husband Hannah and Herman W. John. We are a little selective in leasing out the apartment. Our priority is taking a responsible, careful, understanding and reasonable tenant that will take good care of the property.

The above virtues are very important as we intend to leave you in full charge of the apartment while we are away. My husband and I just relocated to the UK recently due to business. We are Management Consultants and have a contract here that would last for 6 yrs. Thus the minimum period which we intend to lease out the apartment is 3 months starting from August/September while the maximum is 6 years. Hence you are guaranteed to stay in the apartment for 6yrs or less, whichever is convenient for you. The apartment is in excellent condition as you can see from the pictures attached herein.

Note that only a serious and responsible applicant will be considered. It is therefore your responsibility to prove to us that you are the perfect tenant for us.

I do apologize if I sound too strict but we are giving out the apartment at a most affordable rate i.e. $651 month rate (Utilities included are electricity, internet, water and heat). This reduced cost is far below the apartment's worth and is intended to serve as a constant reminder of your responsibility to take good care of the apartment for us if given the opportunity. We are one of the few who believe New York housing should not be so high in cost of rentals. Besides, we only need someone to occupy the apartment and take care of it. If we had a close family friend or relative in NY, we would simply give it out to them to help us take care of it.

You are advised to contact my husband via telephone as he will like to speak with you before we proceed with viewing arrangements. It is also important that you send us all necessary details we need to know about yourself which will convince us that you are perfect tenant for us. These details should include your full names, current address, your present occupation, marital status, if you like pets and why you want to take the apartment.

More details will be communicated to you as soon as we get your response.

Regards

Hannah

Here is another:

Laprade Mandy yvonne

She goes by Mandy. I questioned her "authenticity" right away but wrote back just to see(with an old email I save for spam) and I was right. Here is a snippet of her lengthy email:

"About the apartment:

The apartment belongs to my late father who was working with British High Commission here in New York until his death and he transferred the property to my mother through his will and my mother went back to London, UK after the death of my father, because she is originally from the UK and i am the only occupant of the apartment presently."

It feels almost believable through the entire email, minus the few places there is some odd word phrasing.

She goes by Mandy, be sure to deny it

jenars dave-is a scammer!!! on craigslist!here is letter from him:Good Morning,

I am very glad to inform you that i was incontact from UPS office

that you have received the payment this morning via ups courier

service... Here is the tracking# of the package

).

But during the cause of the Issuance of the check there was a silly

mistake that was made which i think you will be capable of handling.

Perhaps i should have notified you earlier before now. My secretary

made a mistake of sending more than the asking price of the item, this

was due to the fact of the shipping fund and Miscellaneous was

included in the check.

However, I would want you to deduct the money for the item and deduct

extra $100 as my best offer for your running around fees ok? and help

me send the difference Via Western Union Money Transfer to the shipper

today, so that they can arrange for the pick-up and other

miscellaneous..

At this point you will be the delay because my shipper cannot come for

the pick- up pending when I receive the details of the difference,and

I hope you understand the mix up?

[Note]: all western union charges should be deducted from the

shipper`s fund..hope you got it ??

Here is the Details of the shipper below....

Receiver's Name: Sarah Felton

Address: 2351 N Main St

City: Liberty

State: TX

Zipcode:77575

***Email Address..shippingexpress.coinc@in.com

** here are the information i will need from you after you might send

the rest money to the shipper...

[MTCN] 10 Digit number

Sender's full name and address

Total amount sent

Hope to read from you soon ...

Thank you very much to Francesca for your post about Hannah and Herman John. I nearly fell prey to the same scam and received the same e-mail you copied. Prior to sending personal details, I decided to look them up online and found your post. Thank you so very much again!

The follow-up e-mail to this suspected scam is copied below. Another thing that tipped me off was the request for 133 Pounds (sterling) for insured shipping of keys and documents. I do a good amount of shipping to the UK and that is completely unreasonable. They seems to include it to ensure they get at least a bit of money, then all of your personal information as well for probably ID theft. Their communications are convincing enough, that I am still not sure if this is a scam. But there are a number of indicators that seem to point to something not quite right.

"Personally, I will like to just give you the apartment but I will have to further discuss the issue with my husband. You are not the first person approaching us for the place so I do appreciate a high level of seriousness because our schedule is very tight. We would like to conclude with the leasing process to focus on our regular business activities as soon as possible. It is because of our business we had to relocate to the UK in the first place.

There maybe a little problem but I will try to work things out with my husband. He bought the apartment because he normally does business in New York but we just want to lease it for the period we will be out of the states. This will be at least 6 years or more. My husband was considering selling off the property but changed his mind because we still have other long term plans for the place. We would like to know the exact duration you want to sign up for the apartment. We wish to start leasing starting from September/October.

Like I told you before that this is not about the money, which is why our price is very reasonable. The apartment had just been renovated with security access system installed. We just need someone to take good care of the apartment while we are away. I am very concerned about the state of my kitchen and bathroom. Some of the furniture had been moved to the store room under lock and key. This could be placed back if you like but I will also discuss that with my husband.

We intend to start collection of the rental fee of your duration after you have seen the place. We would probably use my husband's Chase account to facilitate the transaction. However, there is nobody there that will show you the place unless we make arrangement to send you the keys along with copies of the house documents, security access code, tenancy agreement and other lease signing papers.

I will try to talk to my husband today about sending you the keys and documents but you will need to scan us some form of your id or reference before we do that, preferably send us your work id, driver's license or state's id to verify your identification.

Alternatively, you can scan your letter of employment or admission letter as reference. The insured cost of shipping is also about £133 pounds. More so, after viewing the apartment, if you do not like it, you will also be responsible for sending us back our keys and documents.

If you are okay with this arrangement, get back to us with your feedback. You can reach my husband on this number +44 792 457 0656."

I appreciate your response to my inquiry. Am interested in buying your furniture. I would love to come check it out myself but I just got married and am presently on honeymoon to hawaii with my wife. I would love a surprise inclusions in our home on our return.Please do withdraw the advert from craigslist as i don't mind adding $50 for you to do that, so i can be rest assured that the item is held for me. I should believe it is in good condition as stated.I will be making the payment via a certified check or paypal, which my secretary will mail across to you.I'll be picking the item from you with the aid of a mover. My Mover will be coming to pick it from you once the paypal has

been cashed. Please I will need both your full name and physical address along wiyth your phone number to issue out the payment.

The more recent scams include a lady named "Mandy Lawrence". She will use a gmail.com address, her most recent being mandylawrence06@gmail.com. She will offer jobs in customer service with payments up to $1200 for being a mystery shopper. She will ask you to use the money to send to a Kelly Muniz in Santa Fe, NM in the pretense of mystery shopping Money Gram.

They even go to the trouble to UPS the check. I took it to a teller I trust and imagine this...the check was a big FAKE! After Mandy was being so pushy for me to cash the check, etc I never heard from the broad again. I am glad I didn't lose money but someone else probably did.

Lisa Temuana is a fake. The "appartment" she is offering is placed at Milano on Franklin street in the city and when I called them they confirmed that they get at least one person a month who has fallen for her lies and paid the $600 bond. If you recieve the following email please KNOW THAT IT IS A FAKE!

Hello,

Thanks for your email. My apartment is fully furnished with bills included, the rent is: $600AUD Per Month, Bond is $600AUD). It has a 24 inch flat screen Tv on the wall/dvd/cd player, fully air conditioning including washing machine/ Dishwasher,telephone line, high speed internet facilities, balcony, Dryer, microwave, it also has a Private entrance, Private Bath, Phone jack, TV, Cable jack, Parking space etc.

Address: 8 Franklin Street, Melbourne, VIC 3000, Australia

Location is between franklin and swanston street. It is really too good place to live because this apartment has good views from level 28 and it is closed with RMIT Uni, Melb Uni, Melbourne Central, Victoria Market, Queen Victoria (QV), etc.

Please note that I'm only looking to rent the property to a very discipline person,cool headed and an understand. After renting the apartment you can bring visitors of your own but must be nice person.

NB:

I request that you send me a scanned copy of your Id for reference and if possibly copy of ID or INTL Passport or Driver's License as i need to know more about you before renting the property to you. And again will be very much appreciating if you could advice me of your work place and what you do for a living.

Your opinion, move in date, intended duration of stay will be highly appreciated in other to proceed with the contract.

BOND IS REFUNDABLE AT YOUR EXIT.

I await to hear from you.

That was the exact email she sent me. Except the place was in Sunshine coast. I already gave her my passport and visa ids.

What a scammer!

Please, do not trust YOLANDA THRASSOU!

She says she is 25 years old.

She sent me the following email:

Hi Monica,

Just to emphasis on some facts. I do not collect money before viewing. Read the mail very well and if you do not understand simply ask.

Since you are ready to view,i will plan my time here and make sure am there before you arrive.

The only thing is that i need double assurance, because i want to avoid traveling from Birmingham to london in vain, i can afford my fare, but i can't afford to waste my time.

My Lawyer will get a contract ready for you to sign if you like to take the room after viewing and the keys will be handed over to you immediately after contract has been signed.

Also, receipt of payment will be issued to you after which you'l have to sign the lease agreement form.

I was discussing with my Lawyer about the idea on how i will be so sure that i will not just waste my time to london without acheiving my the aim and she advised that we can work out something via Western Union Money Transfer.

She said that Western Union Money Transfer can actually hold the money as an evidence and surety that her tenant will pay her at least for the first month and deposit. She gave me an option on what we can do since you have the funds at hand which will be explained below:

PROCEDURE:

1) Transfer the amount £600 (1 month rent and security deposit) to any of your family members (wife, dad, mum, siblings) or your friend.

Your name (as sender) to any of your family members (wife, dad, mum, siblings) or your friend (as Receiver) in London or other parts of UK.

2) Scan & Send a copy of the Western Union Money Transfer transaction receipt as a proof of the transaction or mail me the transaction details. (The money is safe as it is only you that can withdraw since you need a national ID card or International passport)

3) Then, we will meet for viewing.

4) If you decide to take the room, we will go to any local Western Union Money Transfer office for you to pick up the money and pay me. (You don't need to come with cash to view, after viewing we will go together, you will cancel the transfer and withdraw the money to pay me).

5) Keys will be handed over to you after signing the contracts.

I am pretty sure that the transaction at Western Union Money Transfer office will require some charges, i will definitely refund the transaction charges back to you upon viewing and if you don't see what i sent as pictures of my flat to you, you are free to leave without paying me anything.

I only want to be sure that i am not going to waste my time this time around and i think with this condition, both of us can be sure we are not wasting our time.

I will only rely on your honesty that you have made the transaction so that i can reserve the flat for you.

Let me know if you are okay with this so that we can proceed. Thanks so much while i will be waiting to read from you and i am looking forward to meet you and be great friends eventually.

NB: PLS DO NOT MAKE PAYMENT TO ME OR IN MY NAME, WHAT I NEED IS JUST AN EVIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE THE CASH TO PAY ONCE YOU HAVE VIEWED.

My contact number is 07572315086 i do have network problems with my phone at the moment but can receive text messages and then i can call you back at my spare time.

I am sorry for the lengthy mail, i only want to explain myself better.

Warm regards and have a nice day.

Yolanda

I received a fake bank check in which the scammer wanted me to deposit and mail them a refund. His name was Daniel Foreman. After I called him and his scam out, he never replied to my email. He will probably be using my name soon.

Beware of Victoria Adams - craigslist roommate (under any type of rental property)responses. Same ole "I'll send you more money than required and you send me money (I never gave you) back so I can move to USA. These types of emails are easily seen as skeptical and fraudulent. My suggestion, give them false (who'da thunk) information and let them incur the FEDEX etc... fees to send that fake "Cashiers check" from their boss, father, etc....maybe FEDEX will help screen their shipments. Lord knows the "law enforcement agencies" won't do anything.


Nearly Scammed Melbourne 5 years ago

Like wise we were nearly scammed from Rachel Peter(rachelpeter77@yahoo.com) I had actually sent the money via western union but after realised it was a scam, so i went back to western union site and cancelled the money transfer before they claimed it......just in time i'm sure as it was there night over in London. Then she(?) had the audacity to send an email back after we called her on it.

Also watch out for Misty Stephenson (mistysteph@yahoo.com), she was meant to have been also moving in to the Mebourne apartment. Swanson St.

We to posted an add on shareaccomodation.com and had about 20 emails from what i believe to be most of these scammers...

Luckily we cancelled the wire and didn't lose our money.

Also beware of Tina Andres (andres.tina80@gmail.com)she said that she had a solicitor in Adelaide looking after her lease, we rang the solicitors to check and they also said it was a scam.

BEWARE OF JULIANE HANSCH, email address ilovemyflat@hotmail.co.uk , she's a scammer, will ask you to send the money with western union to yourself just to make sure that you have the sufficient money to rent her flat but in reality she will take all your money and you end up in the street, she tried that with me but i read a post in french of a guy who paid 2600 euros and found himself in the street, then I started talking to her and everything he said came true, BEWARE OF JULIANE HANSCH SHE IS A 100% SCAMMER.

this is part of the mail she sent:

there are 2 room available in my flat and below is the details about the available ONE DOUBLE ROOM AND ONE SINGLE ROOM.

So I think I just saved myself a huge problem with someone off of Criagslist. Her name is Gloria Holcomb and she is looking for someone in the Los Angeles area to care for her mom who is currently living with her in FL but wants to come back to Cali. Anyways we corresponded for a few days and she wanted me to give her an estimate on some groceries and sheets. Then she wrote offering me $6 more an hour and saying she would send me money upfront for the items and if i can arrange for shipment of the wheelchair and she'd send me the info on where to wire the money. Was kind of weary but decided I'd wait til the check cleared. Got it today and it's an obious fake, according to her it's from one of her clients at a beauty salon with it's address in FL. My question is why did the owner send the check from CA?? Anyways the bank teller looked at the check weird so I told her to check it out and it's a fake. Gloria is outraged cuz the wheelchair was supposed to be shipped today and asked if i could help her with 500 for today. Umm...I think not!! I told her she could send me money via Western Union but I do not accept any sort of check or money order. So thankful I didn't fall for it as my birthday is in 2.5 weeks and I am a fulltime nursing student and have bills to pay. So just beware..scams are happening for all sorts of things!


Mike 5 years ago

Ive had some really good luck over the past few years selling items I no longer had use for, but wanted the money to buy other things. Just recently my adds are being answered by scammers who have really crazy names and the spelling and the way they put their sentence structure together does not make sense, so they must be from another country. I dont like the way they get my hopes up of selling something else, as I want to buy a Fender Guitar really badly, and wanted to sell a telescope I have not used in a long time.

One guy wrote me back 3 times and I thought he was legit.......then when he started with the His secretary will have the movers come and the check will be sent PLUS 15% more for taking it off craigslist.......I knew then that it was a scam. I gave them the name and phone number and address of the chief of police in town.

Should be interesting...........

Nancy Wink just tried it on me. Saying she had an apartment in sydney, very nice and very cheap...too cheap in fact. They really should do more research before they shit people around. If it wasn't for this site and some detective skills, I probably would have wasted alot of time. I'm pretty tight with my money so I would not have sent her or him anything. But some people would.

It happened to a friend of mine and his mum sent over $40,000 to some manipulative prick in Nigeria...These people feed on your emotions. And is desperate times people will do anything if they think there is hope...

Personally I hope these disgusting people get what they deserve. Maybe not so much a death sentence but perhaps a few tortuous devices would do the trick...


Balky 5 years ago

I also just thought of another thing. These scammers may also use names of real people. So how frustrating would it be for the actual people whom now must try to repair the damage to their name, when they clearly have done nothing...


Scammed in Miami 5 years ago

Add Ivonne Fernandez and Nelson/Lester Rodriguez to this list. They were constantly late with their rent payments and even missed a month. After many attempts of trying to establish a payment plan for them to catch up, they decided to pick up and leave without even paying the last months rent. Doesn't pay to so accommodating or nice to people these days. Avoid these tenants!

Bridget Kathleen McHugh, she is a scammer !!

Be carefull !

She gave me a lot of information about her on easyroomate and told me I had to send as soon as possible a deposit to book the room in Dublin.

@ KKK

Got the exact same email from Juliane Hansch! Unfortunately she got me!!! £1200 ($2200) and I even gave her the sums two weeks apart because I told her I didn't have the full amount as I was a 21 year old struggling uni student! These people are reckless and have no care for others. Western Union is the most unsafe service the fact that this lady could show a scanned copy of the receipt to pick up my money when it clearly says photo ID must be provided is absolutely outrageous... showing this receipt is like showing someones lost ATM receipt at a bank and asking to take the money out! BEWARE OF JULIANE HANSCH.

From: Tina Lee

Subject: Re: Vacant Rooms in Canberra

Received: Sunday, 30 January, 2011, 10:52 AM

Hi ......,Thank you for getting back to me. It's nice reading from you and thanks for the keen interest shown in my room. I work as a marketer with Morris & Co. The company is a flourishing and fashionable decorating firm renowned for its wallpapers and textiles. I was transferred to Australia six years ago from the head office in United states for products exhibition. I have since been living in Australia. And I am presently on a business trip in Cambridge, United Kingdom for the launching of a new branch in Cambridge. This is the reason I'm renting two rooms out of my three bedroom flat, because i would still come back home to continue my job soon. So i want a reliable flatmate who can handle the flat good so that my mind can be at rest. Then you can book an appointment with my lawyer face to face for the inspection. So i would really like you to go contact him at his law firm in Adelaide. But before my trip to UK my lawyer advised me to deposit the spare key at the DHL office in Canberra, so that any interested individual can easily get the spare keys to avoid coming to his firm in Adelaide due to the distance and expenses. Just for him to prepare the Contract Agreement Lease.

I would like you to get back to me soon, till then take good care of yourself.

I hope to read from you again. God bless you!

Best RegardsTina

This person is a scammer - Bridget Kathleen McHugh!!!!!!!

She gave me a lot of information about her (including photos) on easyroomate and told me I had to send as soon as possible a deposit to book the room in Dublin.

I also sent her my passport which she or he might is using right now!

I transfered a lot of money (2 months rate inculding a deposit) via money gram to London (to her "lawyer"). Unfortunately I discovered this page days to late!!.

If there is anywhere in the world a guy with the name Michael Tappauf, who has rooms for rent than do not believe "him", because thats me!!!! and I definitely havn't got any rooms to rent.

BE CAREFUL!


franca 5 years ago

Of course, this person is a scammer: Bridget Kathleen Mc Hugh!!!

Thanks for this craiglist!!!

I also sent her my passport and my personal datas.

He or she might using it right now.

So, if there is a girl who wants to rent rooms with the name "Franca Jäger" don´t believe it. This person is me and I am a victim of this scammer like other people, too.

Please be careful!!!

while trying to rent an apartment in new york, i found these two lovely jerks.

david pretending to be a peditrician(which he makes clear by saying in parentheses -kid's doctor- in case we weren't sure.)he says he is in west africa.

samantha or sam said she is in the UK and just doesn't have anyone in the states to give the apartment keys to! poor thing. she wanted me to give her money via Ebay and then she would send me the keys. Oh, alright, sounds totally legit. I didn't give them any information or money, they have my email with my real name though. I reported these 'people' to craigslist but I wish there was more I could do. Of course, I will fuck with them a little :)

Thank God I found this useful website.

In fact I am looking for a room in Singapore and this girl named Vanessa Regan, 23 years old claimed that she is a wedding planner and her father owns a flat in 22 Cairnhill Road, Singapore. I think she is the same person which the members above met previously with different names such as Christina MacQuillan.

She asked for SGD600 for a room but I told her that is too expensive, and she agreed to rent the room at SGD500 for me. Actually I just replied her that I am keen to take up this offer but I want to view the room by next week. Luckily I did not reveal my passport ID to her. But I am kinda worry coz I have sent my full name, contact number and home address to her. Not sure will she misuse my name or not.

Thanks to all for the info sharing.

Thanks god for this Website! Almost another victim of Bridget Kathleen Mchugh.

Hopefully when she asked me to send money via MoneyGram to her "Lawyer", I looked for his name on Georgia's bar council (as his address was in Georgia), and did not find any lawyer called "steve gomez", so I asked her the lawyer's bar number and state where he was licensed, but she said me she "didn't know because it wasn't her business", then I asked a way to contact him (to ask it myself) and that I would not send any money without some basic checking and she stopped anserwing me! Then I finally googled her name and found this website ... ( why didn't I do it before???)

However she has my passport copy...

On Friday I received email for a job I had applied to on Craigslist as an assistant. The email was from a lady calling herself NancyMunoz (nanym82@gmail.com).

Today I received an interview via messenger from a Philip Andrews. Explained what my duties are and is offering to fund for a home office and laptop which I am to reimburse the sender via transfer. I feel since he's paying for it this might be legit. Says he works for Dell computers. I don't know. Its sad when people prey on those who are trying to find work. All I know is Im logging everything, keeping copies and alerting my bank. (He says everything is paid Direct deposit, he doesn't trust checks since there are so many scams.) I am supposed to start working for this person Monday.

Your site prevented us from going down the same route with Anne Houford. Thanks for doing what you do. Her (?) e mail is below.

Dear

I'll like to inform you that both rooms are still vacant and the rent for each room is $600 per month while the bond is $400 and the rent includes all utilities bills, so you do not need to pay any extra bills when you move into the apartment. I'm only giving out my rooms just to put an end to my loneliness in the apartment and not because of the rent price or anything. So i guess that's the reason why my rooms are so cheap.

I'm presently in New Zealand spending my vacation with my Sister and her family, I believe you have seen the pictures, so i'll like you to choose the exact room you would like to occupy and you can also make your payment to me directly over here in New Zealand. But in the meantime i'll like you to send me the details below so that i can instruct my lawyer to prepare your lease agreement document and the room will be fully reserved for you and you can move in at anytime you want. I'll also like to inform you that each room in the apartment have private toilet and bathroom, so you do not need to share it with anybody and that the rent includes all utility bills so you do not need to pay extra bills when you move into the apartment.

Full Name:

Age:

Sex:

Occupation:

Moving Date:

Present Address:

Contact Number:

Number of months you intend to stay in the room:

Number of months you want to pay for upfront:

However you can still move in while am still away, because i deposited the Spare Keys of the apartment with the DHL Office over there in Australia so if you really want to move in i will be wiling to send you the Reference Number (code number) that you will present to the DHL Officers so as to get the spare keys that i deposited with them or better still i will like you to send me your present address so that i can have it sent directly to you via DHL 24hours Express Delivery Service and you will get the Keys.

I will be like you to get back to me as soon as possible so that your lease document can be prepare and you can proceed by making your payment directly into my lawyers account, so that the room would be fully reserved for you till you are ready to move in.

I'll be willing to send you a scanned copy of my passport, Police Clearance,drivers licence and certificate of ownership of the apartment you will be paying for,so as to prove to you that i truly own the apartment and that there's nothing at all to worry about. You are in safe hands.

Hope to read from you again soon.

Best Regards

Anne

I was on the verge of arranging to send 700 euros to a Khalid Alobaid khalobaid84@gmail.com The deal seemed to be far too good to be true but on a tight budget and renting for only two months in an unknown country both myself and my boyfriend would have readily signed an agreement. Having been sent a passport photo and having received a lease agreement we felt almost sure it was simply a fantastic deal! 350 per month in a fabulous Brussels apartment, amazing, right? But of course we were informed money was no the issue, the property was of sentimental value, his late father. I searched the name and discovered similar names with yahoo and hotmail addresses had been used before. Be so careful, I gave him so much information,I am a very trusting person and feel so ill at ease with the level of knowledge this man now has. Can anyone tell me whether we are at risk? It is so true that if it seems far too good to be true, it more than likely is. I am so relieved that I had more sense than to send my boyfriend's passport photo, phew!

Joesph Had rented us and another person a room in the home for 300.00 and a 100.00 deposit. 3 days after we all began moving in he said he was going to cali to spend the fourth with his daughter. We give him a ride to the bus station!!! And on Friday after the 4th a realator knocked believing no one was there but my 2 chi's started barking so then she realized someone was here. I answered the door and that is when I found out we had been SCAMMED by Joseph Amador!! He got 800.00 dollars 400.00 from each us roommates!!! And when we found out we had no where to go as just give all money to Joseph. The owners say's he would lease to us if we could have 450.00 by Monday. That give us Sat and Sun to get the money, on sunday we finally had all the money to only get a email from the owner telling us he changed his mind and don't want to lease to us cause He not think we could afford it?!?!?! First he never met us and does not know our money situation!!!! So know we have to move and he stated his Realtor was showing the house to ppl this week since he lives in Canada I did borrow the cash to get the 450 by Monday (tomorrow) And since the owner changed his mind I returned the cash to my lender ad they left on vacation and now I not know where we will live and since I moved in stuff all week I have lots of stuff that it will take I am sure close to a week to move out now?!?!?!?!?

Men, there is a girl out there called Maria Sean. I got very suspicious from the first e-mail she sent me. She is on facebook, and tries to make out she is living in Nigeria, looking after her sick grand mother. Her father has left her $3.4 million dollars in his will, but she can't get access to it until she is married. After a few more e-mails of how much she has fallen for you, and what she likes and dislikes, she suddenly asks, for $250 dollars to be sent via Western Union to help pay for her grand mothers medical bills. She sends loads of photos etc, but it is so obviously a scam.

Since telling her that I have a mortgage and can't afford $250 dollars, the emails stop. So all please be aware, Maria Sean, SCAM QUEEN/KING

David Drabek has me concerned. he replied to one of my postings that included a piece of furniture for sale. We first talked via email. He told me approx where he lives which would be approx 12 miles from my house. Then we were tlking over the phone several times as to what day he could come. He gave me an approx date. Supposedly due to his work schedule. Since the day we discussed a day I have not heard any response. I have left messages on both phone and email. If he changed his mind why not just answer the phone or email and tell me. Now I am trying to figure out the email address he was using. I found the company name and will contact them to see what they may or may not know.

Daniel Novak from EBD Company.

I sent in a resume for a receptionist job, then he emails me back with broken english basically saying that I should apply to be a "customer manager" offering 1900 biweekly & 5%of the transactions.

My first mistake was sending my real resume. I filled the app out and sent it back with some questions. He emailed right back not answering ANY of them. attaching an employment agreement sheet requesting i send a photo copy of my DL or passport for verify AGE... yeah right.. the website is very nice..

however, there are no reviews whatsoever, and i couldnt find it on my google maps app. lol He got my name address & phone number... but def not my DL or passport. I caught that one. smh

Have been getting a rash of responsess to my want ad in NY Craig's list asking for credit check to be filled out. Hint to those reading - be especially careful if they seem to ignore your questions or comments - "Sorry, I'm not interested as I don't want to share" got this response from TINA (email :tracybbygirlll949@gmail.com)....

Hey! Thanks for the reply! So, I sent that email out to a few people and I actually got a pretty good response back. So, I am just going to copy and paste my response to everyone and hopefully that will answer all of your questions.

First off: Attached are the pics. The first one is me. The second one is the room, and it has an attached bathroom. There is a small bed in there, but if you don’t want it we can throw it away. The final pic is my room.

Secondly: I’m sorry, but I am not giving out the specific address at this time. I’ve had bad experiences in the past with people (male and female) knocking on my door unexpectedly to check out the room. I would like to know more about you before I open the door.

Thirdly: Speaking of that, I am requesting that you provide a background check on yourself. I don’t care about credit (everyone’s credit sucks these days) but I do care about criminal history! There are several sites out there where you can self-order a background check. A simple Google search comes up with PeopleFinders .com, E-Verify .com, Intelius .com, and USSearch .com. Any of those should work for you. Click through them and check them out.

If you send me your background check and I can confirm you are not a mass-murderer (jk, kinda) we can move forward and set up a date/time to meet. If you CAN’T do a simple background check, I don’t want to be rude, but we probably can’t be roommates.

 

So, send me your results of your background check and lets meet!

Talk to you soon!

I got emails from "Tina" (socalmassage01@gmail.com) as well, this time for the Chicago area. The email she sent was almost identical to the one posted by bzwrks above.

For future reference, the first email she sent:

Hello!

My name is Tina and I came across your ad looking for a place to stay. I wanted to make an offer for you because I do have a room available in my condo!

I'll keep it short and sweet: I'm a 24yo, laid-back female. I have a degree and I work full time. I am single and social, but respectful of my roommates and never bring the party home. I like sports too! My teams are the Dallas Cowboys and the Yankees.

My condo is a 2bd/2ba and owned by my parents. There are 2 'master suites' so the rooms are equally big with nice closets and an attached full bathroom. It's a nice complex and close to everything. There is parking and security as well. My parents told me that I have to collect $400/month for rent, which includes utilities.

In terms of a roommate, I don't mind the age, sex, or race of, just as long as you're not a looney! I'm a pretty easy-going gal!

If you are interested in me sending pics, please respond to this email, and we can go from there! I hope you are having a great day/night/whatever!

It's very easy for CL to ban scammers by blocking ads or IP adresses from dodgy countries. Why dont they do that ?

I think every victim of a CL scam should sue them as they turned a blind eye and are actually facilitating scams

Posted about selling 00 BMW 540 on Baltimore's craigslist. After a couple of email exchanges she sent me this:

Hello again

After i finished the divorce i have moved to my parents home in Detroit Michigan for a while, because i think they are only people who can help me to pass this difficult situation. Besides, there are a lot of things which have priority now, so, this vehicle has to go. It has clean title, cleared of any obligations or fees (no lien) and it is registered in my name. I am a member of the eBay buyer protection and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. After your inspection period (5 calendar days) In case you won't like the vehicle you will notify eBay and you will send the vehicle back on my expense, if you want to keep it you will also announce eBay, you will send the funds (payment method and all the details will be set up by eBay) and you will keep the vehicle.

I need your name and address and after that I will send your info to eBay and they will e-mail you soon with more info about the deal.

P.S. Once i receive your full name and address we can start talking on the phone too,right now i have too many potential buyers and i can`t talk with all of them,i hope you understand.

Thanks and have a great day

Don't trust KELLASE selling a 15" MacBook Pro for 600GBP.

It's ridiculously cheap. He said he was in Norfolk, so it would be too far to travel. He offered to send when I transferred the money etc. When I said I could get the train, he said he would only have time to go to the post office etc. Wanted money transferred to his flat-mate whom he said had an Arabian name. Said I had his address etc in the email and that I had his contract sim number, but got texts from his phone saying this number has no credit so call him back. i.e. Pay as you go, not contract.

Said it had to be sold that weekend. But still listed 2 weeks later, even though I'd said if you don't sell it that weekend, call me and I'll come and buy it.

Only has a photo of the box.

Avoid.

People like this are utter parasites. These scum should be taken out and shot, imo.

Mr. Rolland Smith have now friend how help him to make scam.

Marcel Nick he contact me in FB to make a deal.

How are you and how was the weekend with your wife.

I take note of the content of you but I can see that you did not understand the content of the message that I sent you or Mr. Nick Marcel did not explain to you the nature of what proposal is all about. If you understand the proposal of the contract there is no need for you to be concern about the following: price per kilo or tone, delivery port, form A, code, payment etc. also you do not need to be concern if you or your company can finance the supply that exceed your financial capability because you will not be ask to make supply with your money because the money will be fully paid to you to make the supply which is the amount awarded for the contract.

This is a contract of five million four hundred thousand Pounds that was awarded to a contractor who has a company registered in Bahamas and the Ireland but due to some disagreement and unresolved issue between him and some of the executive contract committee members, the contract was withdrew from the initial contractor because he refuse to come into terms with the executive contract commit. I and Nick Marcel who is of the executive member were mandated to provide a new contractor who shall succeed the initial contract.

What you need to do; you have to come in as a new contractor to change the formal name of the contract to your name through the change of ownership process and after that is done in due process the contract will be approve to your name or company and the money will be release to you to execute the contract. When you receive the money, you are expected to use three million four hundred thousand pound for the supply of the Sea Shell, you shall take care of all expenses including transport, shipping and all charge from the funds. The balance of 2 million shall be share between you and other executive member as it shall be agreed. if this is well understood to you get back to me to enable me furnish you details on how you should move on and what you need to do. Find attached of the type of sea shell needed for the contract, I believe you can get such.

Found an add for a car on CL. A 'woman' emailed me back from michelle.allena@gmail.com. Her msg was: "Hello ,

Is still available and has 74,488 miles, 4 cyl. engine and automatic transmission. My Honda is excellent in every way, has no accidents reports,with no need for additional repairs and clear title. Anyway, thank you for your interest in buying the car. I am selling it at this final price $1,800 because my husband died two months ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in New York trying to start a new life. If you are interested in buying my car, feel free to email me at any time.

Best Regards! Michelle". Second email back from her was, 'Hello again ----,

As I told you in my first e-mail, I am in New York . Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Wallet so my presence isn't necessary. They will not give me any money until you receive and test the car .The car is at the shipping company,ready to be delivered. The shipping cost is included in the total price of the car!. You have five days to test it and inspect the car. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you:

-full name and address

-shipping address

-phone number

After I will have all this details I will forward them to Google Wallet and I will proceed the order. They will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that i am covered by them and that I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details.

Thank you and have a nice day."

It's total crap. So if a Michell Allena replies to an add, or you get any email similar, you'll know.

Pereira Torrez and Gonzalo Sanchez should be added to the list, they are claiming to have property in Rome, they are probably the same person, as they sent me almost the same email as a reply. Here's what they said:

The flat has bancoly,since you are satisfied with my flat and i see the willingness to have it and for me to reserved the flat for you till your arrival ,I want a situation whereby every issue on the tenancy agreement form can be settled on that day and also the handling over of the keys, i have resolved that a willing and serious tenants should be able to make transfer of the security deposit and the rent fee from your country with your friends or relatives name as the sender and your name as the receiver which will make the transfer available to receive by you in Italy which a confirmation will be made on the transfer done to check if he or she is capable of paying the rent before arranging for a viewing or to retain the flat till your arrival and also stop other people from viewing the flat and to be sure that after seeing my flat on your arrival i ll get paid after because i wont afford to come in vain or come twice on basis of the rent.

Please note that the transfer would have to be done through Western union Money transfer from where you are into Italy so that it can be available for you to pick up when you get here, all i need is the receipt as a proof to show me that the funds is remitted with Western union in your name, when this is done i ll be present in Rome on anytime depending on the day you choose, and also so as follow you to the Western Union outlet close to the flat to receive my rent fee, Please note that any money sent by your partner can as well be picked back by your self after it has been confirmed on the internet website of Western union post office that it is available for you.

Please note that the cost of transfer will be deducted from the rent fee and refunded to you when you come for viewing.Once the transfer is within Italy,you will only need to call me so i can have it forwarded to my lawyer to make a check if truly the money is there in the Italy Western union post office website internet.

Since you will be needing the flat on your arrival, if you can make the transfer and my lawyer confirms then i ll reserve the flat for you till your arrival, the amount you are to transfer to your name is 400 Euro and 500 Euro for the refundable damage deposit which in total is 900Euro

Get back to me so i can know what next to do

Regards

I don't even know where to begin. Sadly, the majority of y'all were scammed by a brother and sister team. I've read through comments and I could cry. I recognize most of the aliases. If anyone has pressed charges, I can tell you all you need to know. You cyou can check me out, if you feel you need to. They are my family. Biological mother and my uncle. rharmon104.gmail.com is my e-mail

There is a person phishing out there masquerading as Rose with a phone number of 215-839-6419 this person is specifically targeting people that are putting up adds for anything in the lessons category. DO NOT ACCEPT A CHECK FROM HER! Or if you do, retain the check and report any messages and the check to the FBI fraud department. We need to start taking action against these frauds and this is how visit http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx anyone in the USA can be persecuted for this.

two new scammers in the last few day trying to buy my stuff from craigslist Sandra Ruth or Sandy Ruth and Chris Peck. Chris claims to be a marine engineer at sea or over seas phone number 571-482-8165 and wants to pay with pay pal you even get an email that looks like its from pay pal to confirm the transaction but you have to pay for the shipping first before the money is available to you in your account. they both say they will send out a shipping company to get the item. and both stories are close to the same. they don't tell you what item or items they want to buy just "is you item posted on craigslist still for sale" and both were in the auto parts for sale by owner. emails are chris.pecky03@gmail and Sandramrasmussen1015@gmail

Another name to look out for is Sgt. Linda Hernandez on Craigslist. Tried to sell me a 05 Tahoe for 2870.00. Said she was being sent back to Iraq and needed to get rid of car by 8/10/14. Also had a fake eBay account. Gave a phone number to call 406/962-7539.

I see my name appears on this list. So does that mean I (and who knows how many others who share the same name) now have a bad reputation on craigslist, even though I have NEVER posted there? This is a BAD idea, no matter how well intentioned!

Also don't do dealings with Stacy L. Fredenburg. She lies, steals, invades your privacy, cons ya out of more money than was agreed upon to be paid, screams at ya if she doesn't get her way, turns off the utilities on ya and doesn't tell the truth about her moving or when she is gonna move, and is an alcoholic.


Suzi Leeman 22 months ago

I recieved to henerated emails in teply to my Craigslist ads yesterday. Both had different email addresses. They never said WHICH item they were interested in when i rrplied (initially the both looked legit), so i requested they tell me which item they were interested in. Both replied in the same manner, never identifying the item. They asked for my name, address, phone number, and price of the item. They also said they would send me a check via UPS, plus an extra $30 for my trouble, as they couldnt come see the item, due to their "business". They used OBVIOUS broken English.

They both also said they would "take care of shipping". I suppose i could have egged them on and gotten more information, but i wasnt up to it. I recently lost my husband very suddenly & unexpectedly, and am just trying to get by.

One of the names from the almost identical emails, both of which came via gmail, is Mendel Decorous. The other is Alane Raphael.

I'm afraid i lost my temper, swore & called them both lowlife scum POS's. It just INFURIATES me when people mess with our lives.

Thanks for helping.
