Good Day,

My name is Sandra Martinez; I saw your advert on Craigslist.com regarding the place you have for rent,


This girl is out there. I didn't rent to her but she comes on strong. Wanted me to pick her up from the airport and show her around. She sent me a photo of her Can we down load photos?
I am glad we have this space to share these creeps.

This is a new one that responded to my rental ad.



Juli Perez [juli.p1011@hotmail.com]

Thanks for writing back, i got your mail, i am realy interested in your place, and i would love to move in ASAP, please dont rent it to another person. My former company are going to arrange for the payment, i am going to contact them shortly for the payment to be made out immediately. All you've got to do after receipts is to deduct your rent from it. I will like you to know that i'm a very straight forward and honest person. I will contact my former place of work in the states, they are still owning me some money, for the two years i lived in Texas, i found myself something to keep me busy, i worked for one year and 7 months before moving out of the states. They are willing to pay me now, but with a check, i will like to pay for a month before my arrival, which i know will be important for me, in other for you to fully secure and reserve the place for me, as soon as i arrive, other important things will be taken care of before i move into the place. The first month payment will be made in full Via certified Bank Cashier's Check or money Order and that will stand as a surety prior my arrival. so, i will contact him immediately to proceed with the payment as soon as possible. Please i will need you to send me your Full Name, Contact Address (were the payment can be picked up easily), and phone number, so that i can forward it to my client who is going to issue the check out. As soon as all these is sent to me, i will forward it to him immediately.

As soon as you recieve the check you will deduct the first month plus deposit out from the Check, and you will help me forward the remaning balance to my Traveling Agent so that i can use it to book for my flight back to the states, when i get to the states i will pay the rest. I just want to make sure i get the room before i get back to the state. I will like to stay there for a year if possible, even more that till when i will have my own personal place but I will prefer month to month lease.

I love travelling, sporting and enjoy meeting people. I don't smoke or drink but i do not mind people who do being around me. Am cool headed and easy going person with no criminal record and i like to have a roommmate or neighbor who is very responsible and understanding, someone i can really get a long with easily. I do have a job lined up for me when i arrive there. As soon as you get this mail please get back to me with the info i requested for so that every thing can be done fast. Take care and I will be looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks and have a good time.

Hello,

First thank you everybody for sharing your experience on this website.
I am currently being scammed and will go to the police and file a report.
I posted my house for rent on craig's list and got the response (see below). She refuses to give me her details and says she has no phone.
I requested a passport scan and told her I require her to contact me.

I have not received money yet, but I did supply her my passport scan + bank account number+address. I was stupid enough to take it this far.
What else can I do then go to the police? What damage can they do to me? Can the police track him/her down?

Please send me your advice! I really hope they can crack down on this bastard.

Thanks,
Marie

One more from Sarah Scoty:


Hi again ,

Thanks once again for the quick reply,I would have loved to call You but am leaving now to see my sick uncle ,i can only communicate through email but I will, whenever i get there 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 room 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.....

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....


I got a message that my uncle is sick in france and i have to go see him but i am making plans to secure place so that when i come back i'll just move in into the place we are talking about. and 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,I will be signing a year lease for the start if you are okay with that,so i ve let my uncle 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 any address will be fine as long as you will be able to receive it.

Kindly get back to me with this requested address contact information so that we can proceed asap bye for now..
espérons recevoir de vos nouvelles très bientôt
Au revoir
Thanks..

This is the information I replied to her - gave her my number but fortunately that is the only information.



Hello Ann,

You seem like you would be a good candidate so I have attached pictures from each corner of the bedroom that would be yours. Please let me know if you need any additional pictures. Keep in mind that the house is fully furnished with the exception of that room (the furniture will be moved.) I am currently using that room but will me moving to the master when my roommate moves out. Seeing the furniture in there will give you an idea of the size of the room. They are both the same size - the only difference is the master has a bathroom inside the room and the second bedroom has the guest bathroom. I do have a full size bed and another dresser here if you need to use it, I could send pictures of those as well. I am also welcome to any "knick knacks" etc as my current roommate has some in the living and kitchen area that she will be taking when she leaves. Also, if you have a television stand and television for the living room, that would be great. I have one but it is at my parents house 7 hours from here.

I am also 27 years old and work from home most of the time unless I travel for work. I have a 6 year old very well behaved dog that stays inside all the time. We are definitely clean and very responsible. The landlord is looking for a very clean responsible tenant to move in with me. You could move in as early as the last week in October.

Please give me a call so that wel can talk a little more. I am available today (Friday) and this weekend anytime.

Thanks,
Halley
(phone number deleted)





Good luck to the rest of you if you're still trying to find a roommate as I am!!

Hi again ,

Thanks once again for the quick reply,I would have loved to call You but am leaving now to see my sick uncle ,i can only communicate through email but I will, whenever i get there 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 room 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.....

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....


I got a message that my uncle is sick in france and i have to go see him but i am making plans to secure place so that when i come back i'll just move in into the place we are talking about. and 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,I will be signing a year lease for the start if you are okay with that,so i ve let my uncle 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 any address will be fine as long as you will be able to receive it.

Kindly get back to me with this requested address contact information so that we can proceed asap bye for now..
espérons recevoir de vos nouvelles très bientôt
Au revoir
Thanks..


This person is messed up...

Hi, I too have just been getting some emails from the katewille11@aol.com address. I was rather curious at first since I do read some writing that has been done by ELD folks, but when she sent that email about sending the Money Order and the thing about her uncle being sick....well, the bells started going off...I gave my work phone which is good since you can't even ring in--something is wrong with the phone, but it will be interesting to see what happens....she sent the blonde photo to me....didn't look that French....that kind of blew it, too..thanks for keeping this info out there....it was good to be able to check on my suspicions!

Here's another to suspicious of:
lizzysaylor244@yahoo.com


"Thanks for your email.hope you are doing great? am interested, but am not around now,I really need to secure a place for myself before my arrival.I don't care if its furnished or unfurnished i can take care of that while am around.the amount of rent/month is fine with me. my trip to US is scheduled for Nov 4,would you be able to reserve the place for me?.Below are just some few things you might want to know about me:
am straight,easy going and pretty laid back 28yrs old female....i do not smoke nor drink,am a christian but am not fanatical about my religion as i have always learn to respect others religion/belief.Sometimes i love going to the beach at my leisure time to observe the wonders of nature,i work for an investment company here in west Africa(NIGERIA) and coming to US cos the company i work for here is looking to open business correspondence in the US,this is my first visit to US and i do really hope to find a good place like yours to live in,if you can reserve the place for me i will surely appreciate that,i know there are several people interested in renting the place from you so am willing to make arrangement for some sort of deposit even with the first month rent so that will show commitment from my part,

And just for you to know that this trip will be sponsored by my employer and every expenses as regards the rent and utilities will be paid in full so you have nothing to worry about as to whether i will be able to pay rent or not,pls be aware that my trip to US is fast approaching and i will appreciate if you get back to me asap to know how we can work things out..
Thanks
Lizzy"

Yeah, right. I'm going to rent to you??? I don't think so!
