Okay, I was successfully scamed by a group posing as Molly Ellen Swanson renting an apartment in London.

They used these e-mail addresses:

They chatted on Windows Messenger via:

The bank information that they use for EFT's is:

Account Holder Name: Michael Thomas
Bank Name: Royal Bank of Scotland
Account number:12283808
Sort code:161623
Iban no:RBSGB2L
Swift Code:RBOSGB2L

For the tenancy agreement, the claim is Michael Thomas is the solicitor and his company name is Dove Solicitors which is a play upon the legitimate company name of Doves Solicitors located in London.

This bogus company's phone # and address is given as:

44 7024022139 40 (phone number never goes through and is tied to “Call Sciences Limited”
brentwood garden, London,UK 4395

The phone number and address of the person posing as Molly is:

44 7045041250 This phone number was tied to “Rija UK Ltd” but it has since been disconnected.
27, Redan Place, Bayswater, London W2 4SA - This address, though valid, I'm most certain they are not there.

The IP address their e-mails originate from is
This IP is coming from Lagos Nigeria.

They are typical heartless crooks. They will take your money and continue to talk with you as they are operating above the law. Banks don't care to stop them, and it is unknown whether the police have any means to stop them.
