Good afternoon,
I am hoping you can let me know, if I am dealing with someone real or a scam. The first email read:
Hi,



I do appreciate your response,am very glad and want to thank you for getting back to me,I know that it is very important to know more about someone looking to rent from you,So this is a little bio about me.

About me- I am a friendly 28 year old female who works full time as an occupational Nurse. I am down to earth and easy to get along with. I am very respectful of others' space and opinions.

I strive for a drama free environment. If you want to hangout and go to a coffee shop, bar, shopping,or just feel like doing something spontaneous, then I am game!, I'm pet friendly but dont own one,i don't keep late nights,I was born in canada and my mum was from idaho where i am presently,before my high school i lost my mum and my dad 4 years ago and since then i ve been under the care of my uncle,my mum was a nurse too and that made me to be an Occupational Health Nurse,An occupational health nurse (OHN) is responsible for the health and wellbeing of employees in the work place,so no problem about job..

My interest in the area is simply because change is needed in everyones life and i am also looking into a different direction,i ve been getting my life back cause of what happened to me here few months ago cause i had this had this break up that really makes me want to give up everything but i am rebuilding my life,so that is one of the reasons of my moving, because i understand that time wait for no one,Paying rent on time will not be a problem as i will also be making the rent fee before the month ends(if you want me to do month to month,and i can also do the lease thing too.),I dont have pet,but i am pet friendly,dont keep late nights too..and am straight.


Feel free to ask me any question and as i ve said,i am looking to move in asap,So please email me back if you are looking to rent out asap too,i really would have loved to talk this all over on the phone,but right now the email works faster and getting everything set up,i want to get settle down and get a cell when i move,pls do email me back so i know more about the place and pictures of the place too if you have got... .I really need a roof asap,so pls email me back as soon as you can,and,A picture of mine will be attach in the next email,let me know if we can procced,as i am looking to leave here(idaho asap),to see my uncle in canada before i move over to your place,as he is really sick now...

I did respond with pictures of the place, as requested, and some additional information about the apartment. To which I received this email:
Thanks for emailing me back,i do appreciate,Please email me if you get my email with the pics and let me know if i am a good fit for the place....Please do make sure that you email me so that we can move on, knowing the kind of person you are,i feel alright..and i'll want to move in by the mid of the month

An occupational health nurse (OHN) is responsible for the health and wellbeing of employees in the work place,so no problem about job,as i will be looking at hospitals in the area as soon as you confirm to rent out to me..and really ,i saved up,so dont worry about paying bills for the main time,i'm taking care of my late dad's business too.

I hope you understand that i have my own car too that i'll be coming with...

From this point, I did receive 3 cashiers checks but have not revealed that I have them, until I hear from you. I did receive 2 yahoo mobile text messages from 'katewille02' which I did google to find it associated with a possible scam.

Please advise and thank you for your time

The very first thing anyone should do when receiving an email is check the headers. This will show the real location where the person is emailing you. Make sure you have the 3 cashiers checks checked out to make sure they are real. Also if she ask you to send any part of the money to someone else DO NOT do it. It sounds like a scam, but I am not 100 percent sure.

This is a scam. The cashier's checks are counterfeit. Destroy them now and cut off all communication with the scammer. Block thier email address and phone number if you have to.
