Just received this.

lyndajames111@aol.com" <lyndajames111@aol.com>Add sender to Contacts To: XXXXXXXXXXX Message contains attachmentsmy pic.png (32KB)
Hi again ,
Thanks once again for the quick reply,I would have loved to call You but where i am now,i can only communicate through email but I will whenever i get reception but before that i will want to secure the place,I am very happy meeting a person like you,It 's nice reading from you again and i will never ever want to loose the place even without seeing the place ,i smell the kind of person whom you are and i like you,I will want You to know that i am okay with the cost ,if none is included again.....There many people moving over so you will have choices but i want to plead with you to rent for me
I got to believe that the person that one wants to live with matters most,i believe that you'll be a nice person,I just have my dressers,computer table,kitchen utensils and a queen size bed,2 big luggages and my car to be shipped....
With the way we ve communicated,I am okay with you and i want you to know that i don't want to make any travel plans without securing a place down now,so i ve let my dad understand more about you and the place,He is really comfortable and he told me that it is a nice area he had lived in the states before and he said that i should not afford to loose your place also he said that i should try and make sure that i hold down the place,so i thought of it and i will be making payment to hold down the place and the mode of payment will be the Most acceptable,easier,safer and reliable means of payment which is United State Certified money order so pls let me know if this mode of payment is ok by you.
And if YES pls provide me with the following information to get the payment to you.Your full name as it will appear on the payment,your work place address to ensure delivery in your hands through regular mails or a courier service,your phone number on the package to avoid package missing in transit.I will prefer to send to your work address because you will always be available at work from morning till evening but if home address it will be sitting in your mail and no one will be at home to receive the package.And if you don't receive package at your office address then I guess your home address will be good for the delivery right ? But to avoid any delay of you receiving at home then I guess work address will be fine what do you think ? Kindly get back to me with this requested address contact information so that we can proceed asap bye for now..
Feel free to ask me any question(s) you have okay, and i am moving in by the mid week in March
Thanks...

I am yet another target of the rent/roommate scam. When Jeni walcot emailed me with the now predictable "I am leaving to see my sick uncle" email asking for my personal information in order to "secure the place I have for rent" with a phoney deposit i couldn't resist.

I emailed her back:

Jeni,

i don't know how this is possible but my uncle too is sick! I have to fly to Canada to be with him. My friend is going to stay at my place while i am gone. You can trust him, he's an FBI agent. I just explained your situation to him and he would be happy to take care of all the details. Shall i give him your address or would you like to talk with him directly?

sincerely

goghgirl,

Maybe while you are "visiting your uncle" you will win the Canadian Lottery, and you can then use those winnings to help out one of the many Nigerian Dignitaries to transfer the money from his estate out of the country. :mrgreen:

Reminder: "him" she refers to is my ficticious friend "the FBI agent" who will be handling the rental arrangements.
I Should just ignore her emails. But still it could be fun working in the Canadian Lotto and a few other outrageous concoctions.

I have been getting mostly scammers replying to my ad--they probably can see that it has taken me a while to rent the place so I fit the "desperate" profile. Here are a few of the letters.

Hi,
I saw your roommates ads, I am willing to rent a room or seek a roommates who is nice and honest.
My name is betty and I am 29yrs, Single and looking, never been married, I am originally from austria, but I spent most of my life in the London, UK, I am honest, trustworthy and caring person, who enjoy making good friends, I dont smoke and I dont drink.
I would have loved to come and look at the room, but I am not in the States yet, besides I'm familiar with how a normal American homes look, so I will trust you on what you tell me regards the room.
I am currently working in the UK, working on a Project(Biosphere Expeditions), for 24-26weeks, while I should be rounding up my program next week, I have plans to come to the States and start a branch for my compa ny, have thought about it carefully and I want to move to friendly city, where I can start my own life different from the one I have lived in the UK.
So I just want you to confirm the rent including utilities and if there is any deposit, whats the amount to move in all together? as soon as I pay the rent and deposit, when do I move in? I wont be able to come see it since I am not in the US at the moment.
What is the closest international airport to the house? I will ask my company's client in the US to send you a payment to cover for 2 months to confirm my willingness to occupy your space.
Will be looking forward to your full details where you would want the payment be mailed to:
Full Name......
Address:.....
City, Zip Code:...
Phone:...
Thanks, I will be waiting for your details so I can proceed with the payment, my picture is attached to this email.

Hi There,

How re you doing? I hope all is well. I'm Belen Martinez, am 26 yrs old and Am originally from Barcelona, Spain Graduate of Huelva University on the Costa de la Luz , I have a master degree in interior fashion and I work as a professional fashion designer. I moved to Phoenix , AZ two year ago for work and that's where am living. I'm am not in the states right now, i am presently in West africa . I am currently working on contract for a company call (African Family Home Fashions) here in West Africa ( Nigeria ) which the contract will be ending soon. I will be returning to the states in two weeks time and I don't want to go back to my where am living in Phoenix because my house rent has expired there. I enjoy traveling, It is very interesting to get more knowledge about the new countries, new people and traditions. It's great to have such a possibility.
As i was searching through the web i saw the advert of your place . I would like to know maybe it's still available becasue i'm extremely interested in it. Here are the questions i would like to know about the room before planing to move in to the following questions below:

A}I will like to know the major intersection nearest your neighbourhood.like shopping mall,Churches,bus line e.t.c

B}I will like to know the total cost for the my initial move as in first month rent and if you accept deposit.
C}I will like to know if there is any garage or parking space cos I will have my own car come over.
D}I will like to have the rent fee per month plus the utilities.
E}I will like to have the description of the place, size, and the equipments in there.

F}I will also like to know Your payment mode.
G}I will like to know if I can make an advance payment ahead my arrival
that will be stand as a kind of commitment that I am truely coming over and for you to hold the place down for me. I will be very glad to have all this questions answered with out leaving a stone unturned... Now a little about myself;I am from Barcelona, Spain : that means i am Spanish and had all my education in Spain . I am 26yrs old and very much single,the only child of my only parent,my mother alive, i lost my father and my only brother years ago while i was still a kid in an auto accident.I am currently living with my mom who's a catholic volunteer worker,but also manages her antique business. She is a volunteer at the sister's of the eucharistic heart of jesus convent,here in Barcelona , Spain . I have been wanted to relocated to the US longtime ago even while i was a little girl growing up and my mom is in support.It' been a long dreamed come true for me when i finnally settled in the US now. I have chosen your city for me to live when i arrive. I am easy to get along with and well mannered. I do not use people's items without permission and consideration. Kindly get back to me ASAP with the your monthly rent and the deposit i need to pay to enable you turn down other interested parties and keep the place for me until i arrive,because i will like to pay for the deposit before my arrival and i will like to know the total amount the rent for a whole year would be,as i am more interested in a long term lease,but still open to any form of lease you want. But i will like to pay the deposit first of all before i arrive to show my seriousness and so that you can hold the place for me until i arrive.I am single as i said and i am not attached to anyone at the moment. I do part time modeling; i call myself an amateur though,LOL,just something i take as a hobby and also i have a masters degree in interior fashion which i bagged from the Huelva University on the Costa de la Luz in Spain . I will be looking to pick up Fashion Designer jobs once i arrive in ur city, Fashion Designer is my life and i love it. I am new living all alone as i have lived with my mom alone in the past but i have no doubs in my mind about my ability to live peacefully with as i was raised to be a lover of peace. A friend just introduced me to this thing and i really wish that i am able to find the good cultured kind of Place i am looking for here. I hope i am doing it right anyways.LOL. Well,i think we will get along well because am a easy going person who respects ones privacy,like i said i dont do drugs or smoke but i drink only occasionally,i strongly believe there will be any problems rent the place to me as i was raised by strong catholic Christain parents and have inbibed such good qualities from childhood. I will love to see your pics and those of the place as well.I'll be so glad if you can reserve the place for me and remove all your the adverts abt the place as i'll love to rent the place. Get back to me ASAP


Thanks and have a good time.

Hello,
I'm dave Kelly and i came across your profile for your place to be rented out.I am interested in renting your place for my neice who will be coming to the US.Please answer my following questions below:
1) I will like to know if your place is still available
2) I will like to know the rent fee per month and if you require deposit.
3) I want to know if you accept cashier check for payment so I can make an advance payment before her arrival that will stand as commitment
4) Lastly, I will like to know more about you.
I will be very glad to have all this questions answered.
Hope to hear from you soon
Best Regards
Dave

Thanks for your response.Its okay by me and i want the one at UIC.My neice name is kate blake.She is 22 years old student of Universty of East London.she is responsible,neat,non-smoker and easy going.I will send you my US cashier cheque of $3650 which i bought the last time i visited U.S.I am sending you that much money because my dad is very sick at the moment and i need to go out of town to take care of him and i need to go with all the money i have with me because i dont know how much money am going to spend for his hospital bill and take care of neccessary things.The cashier cheque is for US which is cashable at your bank and its not cashable here in UK.I made promise to my neice that if she performs very well in her exams in the University that am going to send her to the US.she has performed very well and i dont want to dissapoint her.So once you receive the cashier cheque,take it to the bank and cash it,remove the first month rent payment and Send the balance down to my neice through western union money transfer so she can buy her ticket and buy necessary things she will need to bring along because i will be away from town to take care of my dad because he is sick at the moment.Send me your name, address and phone number so i can write the cheque payable to your name.

Hope to hear from you as soon as possible so i can send the cheque to you before i leave town to my dad's place

I am presently in Amsterdam Holland and I will be moving to USA fully to live for the rest of my life and start a new life and set up my own business as a Computer Consultant ( I have my resume). I will be staying in your Place as long as the lease is drawn.
I should be returning to America on before April 18th 2009
I need answers to my 8 questions above as soon as possible so as to arrange for you to get the money prior for my arrival to retain and consider the place is mine.. I will be making this advance payment ahead my arrival so that you can be rest assured that this is real since I am not in the state presently. If you think
I will be a good applicant to you and you are interested in renting the place to me
NOTE: Kindly address all emails to me directly to my private email box at djamison33@live.com
Thanks and have a good time.
Warmest Regards,
Dawn Louise Jamison

katewille04@aol.com <katewille04@aol.com> is at it again..
SHe has sent me emails last week and this week, that look like the ones from last April and again more recently including her picture. The good news is that I gave her my husband's name and business address and phoine number NOT MINE OR OUR HOME.. She actually sent 4 moneygrams through Walmart .. and asked me to cash them and send the extra money to her shipper .. then she told me I had sent them to the wrong shipper and asked me to get that changed.. all the time NOT filling out the lease agreement I sent her..
SO, I cashed two of the money orders at one bank and then other at another credit union ... neither has contacted me saying they werent legit. I only sent a small portion of the first money order to her "local" shipper in Detroit when she asked me to send the rest to her "local" shipper in Georgia. The money grams came from a Walmart -Fed Ex'd from a company called ABB in MD. I cant figure out what the real scam is.

Wish there was a universal way to warn people not yet aware that there is a typical pattern of language and stories tin e-mails about wanting to rent a room CraigsList is a popular target and to send us money from "somewhere'' thanks to dead generals, deceased folks with no will who have our family names or we are the lucky beneficiaries, oil revenues, lotteries. The most common Craigs List one is they send a cheque/check but the receiver is to send back $xxx to pay for shipping, of course the check is false and the sender loses money. I have not been taken but too many have. "if it sounds too good to be true, it is FAKE!! :evil:

I believe this is the same person who scammed me. Using different name, but other things are similar. Now is using the alias Nicole Wayne, 27, pediatric nurse, French, living in South Dakota under the support of sick Uncle. Has to go tend to sick Uncle in France, will I pay shipping fees? Names are different, but scam is the same.
Other aliases are Jeni Walcot, Lynda James, mindymit202, gloria.4youalone, jemmie1100, dhopeofyears, to name a few.
This is a Craigslist Scam
Any emails using terms such as "I smell the kind of person who you are", and "I will want to secure the place down." is the same scammer.
