I posted an ad for a roomate Saturday and within minutes I received two replys. One from Australia and one from Spain, allegedly. I new this was a scam simply by the spelling. The girl from Australia writes as if she's Russian. Same for the girl from Spain.
It's fun to play along.
How are you doing? fine and hope you are having a wonderful day,Anyway i must tell you that am really happy about the information provided,and i will want you to know that i'm really interested in renting the place from you and i won't take any chance in losing it.All i will want you to do for me is to please remove the advert from the sites as i will not want to lose it to another person.I' ve contacted my organization personnel manager that will be responsible for the payment and he said he is okay by it and he promised to make the payment out to you via a money order.
I will also want to inform you that i will be shipping over little of my bedroom furnitures and my car that my organization gave when i was promoted as Humanitarian officer and my boss as promised to include the money for the shipment with the money for the rent fees,so as son as the shippers came to deliver my things,you will help me to give them the remaining money at the point of there delivery after you may have deducted the money for the rent fees.
Hope you can really understand this?i will really appreciate if you can do this for me,please do get back to me with your decision so that my boss can get the payment send to you as soon as possible.
Hope to read from you soon and will get intouch with you as soon as the payment as been sent.

Am very much interested in you and the room cos you sound like a nice someone and i promise never to disappoint you in anyway..I must confess i'm comfortable with the cost of the room and its quite reasonable and affordable.likewise to make the payment for the first month ahead of my arrival, and then i will make subsequent payment thereafter as i plan to stay for more than 6months,I,'ve told my boss about this and he promised to make sure that he meet up with the payment so that I can depart from here as scheduled. So i hope you can keep the room for me till my arrival.Moreso my boss said the mode of payment will be the Most acceptable,easier,safer and reliable means of payment which is United State Certified money order or bank certified check..So pls let me know if this mode of payment is ok by you.Feel free to ask me any question(s) you have okay...
