WOW that was close! I live in the Hudson Valley in New York and was so close to falling victim. Thank you so much for this site. If I did not see the same words posted here that I received in my emails then I might not have believed it. And here I thought I was the kind who could never get scammed like this. For those who might find this useful, I am listing some of my correspondence with Susan Rowland:

Hello

I still have the laptop. The laptop was set up for the US, it is 3 months old and it comes with 9 months of warranty.
I have attached some pics with the laptop to this e-mail. I am now in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.
Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that:

http://www.tnt.com/tnt.express.wolverha ... rvice.html

TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the laptop before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (shipping is on me).

Let me know what you think.

Best,
Susan

I am glad to hear that you did not become a victim, and THANK YOU for mentioning that you thought you were the type of person who could never get scammed! I have SO MANY people say to me that people become the victims of scams because they were stupid or greedy, and that is NOT true! The scammers are just GOOD at what they do, so really ANYONE who is on the internet COULD become a scam victim. That is why we have this site!

Another thing you can do is to tell everyone you know about what almost happened to you. Education about these scams is the key to fighting them!

Just wanted to post my experience so maybe it will help someone. Thank goodness for this site!!!

First email, from "Kevin Clayton" kevin.clayyton@gmail.com
Hello,

Thank you for your interest. I have available the apartment located at
1900-2000 S. Eads St., Arlington, VA 22202, with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, because I move with my job in United Kingdom, London and I
need money to pay the rent here, that is the reason I want to rent at this price and to find a good person for my apartment. This is the
reason that I want to rent it. I can rent you the apt for max. 5 years because I have a contract here for this period. I `m the owner of the
apt and its like in the pics. The rent for 1 month is $1050 including all utilities (water, electricity, Internet, cable, parking, air
onditioning, fireplace, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator). You can move in the apt in the same day when you receive
the keys.The only problem is that I`m the only person who have the keys but I hope that we will find a compromise.
Thank you for your interest and wait news from you ,

Best Regards ,

SECOND email: (this is the one that sounded fishy)

Hello,


Thank you for your reply and yes pets are allowed also you can see the pictures in the attach file. Like I have inform you before, the price you shall pay for one month of rent will be $1050 US, with no extra taxes to pay. The money I want to revive it monthly to my bank account, I hope will be no problem for you to wire the money to my bank account. The apartment is ready for you, you will need only to receive the keys and the contract to check it, and see if you like it.
Obviously we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after. I have found a way for us to
complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the Keys in less than 2 days, if you move fast as
well. The solution is provided by a company called TNT which is similar
to FedEx, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the Keys.
I have found a procedure that will allow you to pay for the rent of the apt only after you will receive the keys it and through this way you
will see it and decide if you will stay in the apt or not before I receive my payment.
Please click on the link bellow to the TNT website to see how we can
complete the deal safely and fast directly from the website of the
company where the procedure is explained: http://www.tnt.com/country/en_generic/s ... tical.html
Let me know if you are interested please because I really need to take care of this matter by the end of the next week


Best Regards,



So thank you VERY much for posting your experiences, it sounded too good to be true, but I didn't listen to my instinct at first, was really looking for a deal.

Please be aware that this guy is after renters. I will post this in a few more places so it gets some exposure.

Hi there,

Sorry for my late reply but I'm currently in England, Wolverhampton. I was promoted to Sales Administrator and I have to take a 6 months trainning program here in UK, before I'll be back home, in States.
The PS 3 is still available, in perfect condition, and I will sell it only in US because here the warranty and the SonyCare are US registered.
I can't use the PS 3 here in UK because it works on 110 V. I didn't know about this problem when I moved here. Also I don't have time to play because I work all day.
I have attached some pics with the Playstation to this e-mail so you can see the condition of the PS 3. I bought the PS 3 2 months ago and it still has 22 months of Sony transferable warranty remaining .
I hope you are still interested and we can make the deal happen right away.
Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that:

http://www.tnt.com/tnt.express.wolverha ... rvice.html

TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the PS 3 before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (on my expense).

Let me know what you think.

Tasha Kiser

Yes they make power converters. I think I have mentioned that in here before, but it is worth keeping it current so maybe people will see it.

So glad I found this site. I knew something smelled fishy so I looked up the company in question here's the entire email:

Re: $1200 / 2br - Apartment for rent! Parc Coliseum (Manhattan)

Hi again,

Thank you for your reply but the matter is that I'm in London already. Like I have informed you before, the price you will pay for one month of rent will be $1,200 US, with no extra taxes to pay. I want the rent to be sent monthly to my bank account, so I hope it will be no problem for you to wire the money to my bank account. The apartment is ready for you, you will need only to receive the keys and the contract to check it, and see if you like it.
Obviously we need a way to complete this deal, that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after. In order of that I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the Keys in less than 2 days, if you move fast as well.

Thanks,
Melanie

Hello,

I am absolutely interested. Please let me know how can we arrange a viewing and we'll make it happen.

Hello,
I'm sorry for the late reply but I had a lot to work and this is the time I could give you a message. From the craigslist ad, as you can see, that the apartment located in: 230 West 71st Street New York, NY 10023. It is located on the 2nd floor of Parc Coliseum Building. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen and 1 living room. I`m the owner of the apt and it's like in the pics.
I am looking for someone to live in it, as soon as possible, because my company has won the auction for a project, in construction, for a building that will rise up in London, United Kingdom. I am a civil engineer, so my accommodation period in UK will be about 4 years. The renting period is from 2 months (minimum) upto 4 years(maximum). I want to rent the apt in this period, at this price and also to find the perfect person for my apartment.
The apartment is furnished, but I have the option of sending all my furniture into storage if you want to bring your own (no extra costs). The rent for 1 month is $1,200 (for the whole apartment) including all utilities (water, electricity, Internet, cable, parking, air conditioning, fireplace, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator). You can move in the apt. in the same day when you receive the keys. The only problem is that I`m the only person who has the keys but I hope that we will find a solution.

Thank you for your interest and I will look forward to hearing from you soon. Please tell me if this is what are you looking for and reply my only if you are truly interested in the apt.

Good luck,
Melanie


P.S. Here are more photos of the apartment. There is a .rar archive uploaded with the photos for you. Click on the link below to download them!
