My reply to hopeofyears@aol.com;
Angeline,Thank you for asking about the apartment.I could not find any information about you on the internet. I check out people before I reply.If you are in S Dakota, that means that you do not have a job in the area, nor do you know the area. I only take those who are employed full time in this area.We can talk further, if I have information.

OMG...... My Brother listed his room for rent on Craigslist and these are the 3 "roomies" who responded.... Every time I responded to them they never answered my questions only returned email about themselfs, and pictures of these "little chicky poos" all college educated with no boyfreinds,no hang ups , love the beach and swiming,,,,,, LOL... I've got one ups package arriving today witha Cashiers check in it.... My question is who do we report this to and is there a reward??? LOL


Hi,

Thanks for the response to my introductory mail,I really do appreciate the breakdown details of the room. I'll be so glad if you can reserve the room for me as i'll love to rent the place.I am a humanitarian officer involved in projects that includes orphans,orphanages,heart related diseases in children betweeen the ages of 4-10yrs.I will be staying for a minimum of 12 -13 months.

Am 28 years old from Canada,I don't drink nor smoke but i'm cool living with people that do,no pets and no boyfriend because I am a very busy woman.I like honest,responsible,trustworthy and handworking people while I dislike lazy,messy,uncaring people and I love pets so much,am quiet and easy going person to live with. I'm 5"7' straight. I always love to go on date but seldomly party. I swim for fun and sometimes play tennis.

I like the job cos we are working in collaboration with the world health organisation,hospital,health centres,medical and other health related instutitions,it also involves travelling which is one of my hobbies, i will be thru with my programme here in canada by the end of this month and because its a study leave i will still be getting paid,so paying my rents on time won't be an issue of discussion.

I must confess i'm comfortable with the cost of the room and its quite reasonable and affordable . I will like 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,'ve told my boss about this and he promised to make sure that he will meet up with the payment so that I can depart from here as scheduled.He also said I will have the advantage to make payment for deposit .I should arrive to US on before the 25h Sep 2008, so pls keep room for me till my arrival.He also said my 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 address to ensure delivery in your hands through regular mails,kindly get back to me with this requested address contact information so that we can proceed asap bye for now..

do get bact to me with your full information,
(1)your full name .
(2)your contact address .
(3)your phone # .
(4)your email address so that my boss can sent the payment to you ok.
Feel free to ask me any question(s) you have okay...
Hope to read from you soon.

Kindest Regards,

diana

I got this scam on craigslist about renting out their apartment to me.


{Ok,
If we decide to proceed with this transaction, I will have to contact Rent.com and provide them all the necessary information, so they can start the process right away. I will need your full name and address for that. You will receive a notification from Rent.com shortly after that, together with all the instructions to follow and the invoice as well.
Regarding the payment, you will be instructed to deposit the money($ 900) to a Rent.com Agent from United Kingdom. They will hold and insure your money until you check the apartment and decide if you want take it or not. That is how their buyer protection policy works. As far as my concerns, I will be glad to know that Rent.com has the possession of the money during the delivery period. That is my insurance.
As soon as the funds have been deposited into their account, they will immediately start the shipping process.
The keys and rental contract will be delivered at your address in no more than 3 working days. You will be given a ten days inspection period from the day you receive the keys and contract at home. If you decide to hold the apartment, then you will have to authorize Rent.com to release the funds to me, and the transaction will be completed. If you will not be satisfied with the apartment, you will be able to send the keys and contract back through the same service and ask Rent.com to return the funds to you.
Though I am sure you will love the apartment, it is good to know that you do have this second option available. If you wish to proceed with renting the apartment, please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through Rent.com right away.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Regards.}

I was like, hmmm.... out of the country transaction... I don't think so. I emailed him today that I consulted with a financial specialist about this and told me that it was no good. But in reality, I googled rent.com scams and I got this website and saw that alot of other people got the same damn response. So if you get something like this guys, say NO! It's not real. rent.com doesn't even have a money holding program.

Ok, I posted a room for rent for my Brother in craigs list. As I stated before I got 3 responses from 3 different scam artists. All 28 year old, girls, professionals,foreigners want to send me cashiers checks with excess money to cover shipment of cars, furniture, ect... After finding out this was a scam thanks to this web site I actually got a forth and fifth and decided to mess with them. The following email was what happened. too funny , this
is girl named Megic Pella was the one I messed with. She asked me accept a cashiers check and I said why not western union, then she said her boss was in the US and couldn't(how stupid a statement)I said oooooo great I'll just meet him, LOL here is the email I got back. Too funny if you can't beat em join em.My next email will be why can't your boss send a check to the movers? Or better yet, I'll send you a cashiers check( bad one) you cash it and send me the money, LOL... I could go on and on.. here is the email,


From: Me
Subject: Fwd: Get back to me asap....
To: megicpella002@yahoo.com
Date: Saturday, September 27, 2008, 3:44 PM


Great if your boss is in the states, I'll just meet him or have him give me cash !




From: megicpella002@yahoo.com

My boss do travel around the world cos they have clients around the world.so he does not have the chance to pay cash and i want you to understand that he will have to issue the check from the company and not himself.So i will want you to let me know your final conclusion cos am wasting my time here.He cant pay cash unless you can allow him to make transfer to your credit card or if you have a business acount PNC BANK then he can easly make the transfer to you.Let me know the once you will prefer now and let stop draging on the issue of payment.If you cant accept any of this ways let me know and we stop this cos i dont really have the time.Do have great weekend.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks
Megic Pella

I received the exact email from Saskia, word for word. When "she" told me that I should send the balance of her check to a shipper in W.V., I contacted the local police department with the recipient's name (Yvonne Marie Alger, a real chick, who pretends to think this business is legit), and they are pursuing her. Please email the local police department to report person who will accept the Western Union wire in the town in which they live. Seem Ms. Yvonne was successful at ripping off a Cali girl. There is a record of her sending a wire to Nigeria. At least help bring down the Americans who are helping the Nigerian scammers. If you have seen her name on your emails, contact cop17@hotmail.com. Oddly, the check was shipped from Austin.

Just so you know, she could be a victim of the Work From Home Scams, where she was "hired" by them to be the middle person, only SHE thinks she is working as some sort of accounts manager in charge of overseas money transfers. I have seen it happen before where the scammers "hire" someone and then use them as the person to filter money or merchandise through.

Shawn,

Maybe, but she was rude and elusive with the police. She refused to give any details or how much she gets for her services. She did admit that her recipient was in Nigeria.

Don't get me wrong . . . I am not saying that she is or is not "in" on the whole thing, or does or does not know that what is going on it illegal . . . I am just saying I have seen it happen before where someone else who just thought they were doing what they were supposed to do (their job) has found out later that they too were involved in a scam. Sometimes you have to wait for things to get sorted out to find out what really is going on.

No matter what, I am glad that so many have gotten the word out about these scams through this site. All of the people who have posted information on this have helped to save others from becoming victims.

I really appreciate your Patient, caring and concern towards my arrival to state,am very happy to hear that you've received the Check once again. But the excess amount will be for the shipment of my stuffs as i have told you earlier in my previous mail,okay? I really appreciate that from you and i must confess to you that you are wonderful and that am going to make a good stay with you. I got an information from my shipping agency and they made me to understand that they will be shipping over my stuffs and it will get to US my future room by this weekend,but they will not take it to my future home if i can't get there service charge to them via Western Union when they have arrive in the Canada, because there payment policy has been changed in awhile due to the new Board Of Trustee policies and new rules and regulation guiding the operation of the company, because before now payment are made at the point of delivery but now everything have changed. I was also told by my travel agency that my flight will be on soon and I'll forward that to you so you can prepare yourself ready for my pick up from the airport next week. I'm really happy and excited that i will be meeting you in person soon and that my things will be shipped from my presence here ....At this junction, i will implore you to please deposit the Check at your bank,and when you get there,you will request for a part payment of ($3,155) from the money so that you can send it to the mover and they can ship my stuffs to my room before my arrival as planned because I'll have to monitor the loading in person here,okay? More so i was also told that it'll take 4 days to complete the shipment from here to state and since I'll be coming by 8th of sept and I'll implore you to kindly get the payment to them as soon as you can, so that won't delay my arrival on 8th of sept because the shipment will be taking 4days before it can get to state my future room,okay? Please i will be so glad if you can do this for me as soon as possible, Here is there present location information where you will send the payment to via Western Union Transfer.

Shipper Name: .... RONALD JACOBS
Address: .............. 1169 TWO NOTCH RD.
City: .................... MASSILLON
State: .................. OHIO
Zip Code: ............. 44646
Country: .............. USA

After sending the money, i was told that you will be given some information
at the Western Union outlet that (Mr Ronald) who is the operation manager
will use to pick up the money for the company at any Western Union
location close to them.These are the information below.

1.The sender name and address.
2.The receiver name and address.
3.Reference number.
4..Exact amount sent .

With this information (RONALD JACOBS) will be able to pick the money up and come for delivery this weekend. Then they will be able to come and deliver my stuffs to my future room, so that i can arrive by 8th of sept and we can meet in person and meet my roomier,okay? Kindly get it done and get back to me as soon as you're through with it so that i can keep them update with the information and the money can be picked up and shipment process can commence asap. I really appreciate that you will be available to pick me up from the airport on my arrival, I'll write my name TAG on me, so that it can be very easy for you to locate me at the airport at the arrivals.Thanks, very eager to see your face soon...Hope to read from you soonest,

Kindest regards.

What I am concerned about now is what to do about the situation. I have not responded to her last email (the one immediately above). We did not cash the check, but the person does have our address and phone number as well as my email address. Should we be concerned?

I had a response for a room I was renting in Colorado -once again the French girl - using the email account eligirl03@gmail - name elena morgan. I though it was a scam from the beginning so I have asked her 3 times for emailed copy of visa, passport and uncle's address in SD - all of a sudden she has lost interest in the room. BEWARE she's still out there!
