subjectRe: Hello Sarah


Compliments,

I will start by introducing myself briefly; I am Sarah Reynolds 30 years old, Am Originally from Ontario, Canada grew up in Northern Ireland, UK.

I am a Pathologist by profession, presently work for Le Grange Organization under the inspection of W.H.O/UNICEF as a microbiologist/Researcher; I do more of humanitarian work which is out of my real profession. Moreover, I just finished a project here in Northern Ireland, UK about treatment of water and to educate Communities on intensive health-care.
The project was initiated by UNICEF in conjunction with L.G.O; I led the troop to actualize the conclusion of the project. My next appointment is in the United States, I will have to move in by first week of October. Due to this reason, I had to make the posting to get a room urgently for me to get a place to live on my arrival to the states. I have some personal effect to move in such as my Desktop computer, bedroom furniture.
I get lot of acknowledgment about me been friendly, I love kids, I’m laid back, I don't move about at nights, love reading novels and listening to the news because am very conservative about politics & entertainment.
The duration of my stay is for 12 months as my supervisor will come visiting once in awhile to get reports from me, a letter of appointment about my first assignment by my supervisor upon my arrival. Precisely, I might be working in schools, Laboratories and Hospitals.

Am writing to confirm if you still have the room available for rent......If YES, Kindly reply the following questions below:
1) I will like to have the description of the room, size, and the equipments in there.
2) I will like to have the rent fee per month plus the utilities.
3) I will also be coming with some of my furniture, electronics that is if it is allowed, like bed, book shelf because I read a lot, shoe rank etc
4) I will also like to know if you accept Cashier's Check or Money Order so that I can contact our payment department for the payment. The company is responsible for the payment.
5) If the 4 questions are YES, I will like to know the total cost for the initial move as in first month rent plus utilities and if deposit is necessary.
6) I will like to know the major intersection
7) I will like to know as well when the place will be available and how long you wish to rent it out.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Respectfully,
Sarah Reynolds.

from roommates.com: frances212 aka Frances Leonell aka frances.leonel@yahoo.com

Insto-response to my ad. From Turkish, currently in Dublin Ireland, heading to (Virginia) for a 1-yr sales position.

Very well-written letter 1 & 2. Then it took a dive for a couple of emails (not quite as bad as your "typical" scammer, so only little flags going up). I asked twice for her employers & exact arrival date...

Also stated the total amounts due, depending on movein date.

Then I'm told I'll be receiving a check from the personal account of Mr. Tail Hunt (really?) drawn on Chase Bank, for $2xxx - mind you, best case was rent being $1300 incl deposit, pro-rated & next month. Then I was supposed to Western Union to her travel agent to then get her flight over here booked... *RED FLAG WENT UP*

Still haven't gotten an employer, finally got an arrival date w/ flight information... NOW the story is that the extra cheque $ is for her Traveler Allowance...

Check arrives: Hand written envelope; misspellings in the address; from Tail Hunt
Inside: Cashier's Check; purchaser: Michael Smith; signed by Carla S P*something imprint*; drawn on AMSouth bank (wait - thought it was supposed to be Chase?).... with the check # being included in the account #...

While I've only had like 3 bank accounts in my LIFE - I have worked in A/R & A/P - and the check # never appears IN the account # of the check... it's off to the side in that string of #.

So off I go to the bank to verify if it's legit... interestingly, looks like the front of the check design had a slight crease - which matches the crease in the check-paper. hmmmm :roll:

I also got another from roommates.com: Laura Sasa from the D.R. - typical poor English writing. So I asked for her employer (by this point, I'm a little wise, was curious what would be returned) - all the sudden "thanks for the details of the room & picking me...." o_O none of that was given...

sadly, I can't recall Laura's handle on rm.com - it went POOF about 30min after I got the initial response. but the email used was: sasalaura388@yahoo.com.

Sigh... this crap I expected on craigslist since it's free to post. It's sad that even the paid sites are getting laid low.

Jenifer Coop <jenifercoop@yahoo.com>
First BIG red flag – name and message full of misspelled words and bad grammar like someoene who would use a free online translator – Jenifer Coop? c’mon can this people be at least more creative??
:x

I am happy to say that I have never been duped by a scammer; I can spot them miles away. I recently posted rooms for rent on a website and this character pops up right off the bat few seconds after I posted. :shock:
“From: jenifer (jenifercoop@yahoo.com)

Ahem.. As I painfully read through the misspelled ridden message it didn't take a genious to realize it was a scam, to confirm my suspicions a quick Google and Zaba search and return no results for such name. See message below:

"Hello Leaser,
My name is Jenifer coop, am an pediatric nurse and a make up artist as part time,i was opportune to see and i read through your posting on olx. concerning the advert you posted, i am expressing my sheer interest in taking up the room, what are the modalities in taking up the place, please have the requirements sent in these form
*Total rent Required before moving in
* Utility Bills
I will be anxiously waiting for your email ,I want you to know that i really need the room now and i am the serious type paying rent ,when emailing me please tell me more about the place and more pics if you have...I am open to any type of lease..
Kind Regards
Thanks.”

.. after a brieft introduction I asked when she would be available to see the place and asked few basic question that was completely ignored by the scammer

Here is the reply:
“Hello,
Thanks very much for e-mailing me back,i really appreciate it.. I would have been kind of happy if we can meet,before making any plans,but am very busy and i have a lot of things to do right now.. I will really appreciate it if you can tell me more about the place and tell me little about you I also want you to know the availability of the room,because my uncle is presently very sick,and i have to travel to Finland to see him,but i want to secure the place down before going..


Right now,am in South Dakota,am staying in the address below:::

615 South Jefferson Avenue Pierre, SD 57501

My rent is going to due in 2 weeks time....

A lil about myself: neat, clean, nice, like to think of myself as a comedian at times, honest, responsible, straight forward, hard worker, like to be serious when needed but also like to have fun and enjoy life, well,am a quiet and gentle going person to live with, like the outdoors, like sports, like to workout, and for the most part a very caring person also.

Right now.I ve the support of my uncle about my well being,so you shouldn't be bothered about if i am competent of paying the rent “
Good grief - who would fall for this.. :?:
my reply was as vague as the previous message from the scammer :D

Well, I decided to humor her/him and reply in a very naiveté and congenial manner. What I am trying to accomplish is to gather more info to report the scammer. In my replied I attached a rental form saying that I need the info on the form before we went any further. :mrgreen:

It’s obvious that don't expect to get any former employer information and current landlord name and contact information, nonetheless I hope the scammer will be bold enough to try to send me bogus info. :lol:

The 3rd email from the looser was as follow:

I must confess am comfortable with the ruls and regulation and I will want to secure the place down before my arrival so i will want you to tell me all about the place,as i can't see it before my arrival but the pictures...I also will want you to know that i have my car that i will be coming over with,and little of my furnitures,please let me know if there will be room for them..
With all that i ve said above,I have told you more about me and more picture of mine will be attach in the next email,Let me also know how i can go about securing the place down before my arrival i will be busy from next week preparing to come over and let me know if you can take off the ad off the site as i am going to secure the place with a deposit kindly let me know thet total amunth for six month lease and let me kow if there will be any other fees to pay
Feel free to ask me any question and as i ve said,i am looking to move in by the availability of the place,but want to secure it now with deposite let me know your bank account in order to trensfer the fund to your bank account or if any other payment will be sugest hint me up asap this my address bellow;

Jenifer coop
South Dakota
615 South Jefferson
Avenue Pierre, SD 57501

What no phone number - Wow they really knows how to cover their tracks! :lol:

At yahoo when you place a mouse over any given address it shows the exact location on a map and the address she/he provided came up as a Nursing home in South Dakota. :roll:

Now, if I get some more information on this scammer, how I go about reporting it. That is what I intend to do. While searching online I came across with this site and I was wondering if anyone has successfully reported a scammer. I would love to see this people behind bars, even though I know this is a farfetched. I am willing to go on with this farce and see if I can nail this sucker. :twisted:

Any feedback in that regard will be greatly appreciated!
:wink:

The deposit agreement you signed when you opened the account will state "anything that is deposited is the responsibility of the signer on the account"
