I got this email, very similar to the rest. I got the check, but unfortunately have deposited it before I realized this was a scam. I HAVE NOT, however, sent her money. I'm working on getting in touch with my bank about this, since they obviously haven't realized it as fraudulent yet. Has anyone else heard from "Jessica"?

Hello ,

Today I got this one, I had been uneasy about it from the beginning and this cinched it....

Hello Laura
Thanks for the email again.Please deduct the deposit and febuary rents and keep the rest of the money for my expenses.I am expecting some of my money to come through to take care of my flight from here and other travel expenses.But in the unlikely event that this does not happen i might require you to pay for my air ticket using some of the remaining money.Am expecting the money next weekend but it seems flights are really cheap now from here which might not be worth waiting.Please let me know the nearest airport to you and if you will be able tp come and pick me up when i arrive.I see Grand forks and Minneapolis but i dont know which one is closer to you.Please let me also know if i need some additional stuff for the room.I will give you details to pay for my air ticket later.Please let me know when you are ready to do this for me.The earlier the better so that we take advantage of the cheap flights from London now.

I have recieved the exact same e-mails word for word. "She" was using the e-mail address listed here and in the middle of our correspondence changed it to "She" sent me a check with the name "Mr. E. Tabe Bawak" as the name on it. Thank God I didn't do anything with the check. I am just a college student who was looking for someone to lease my roommate's apartment for the summer. At least I learned a lesson without it costing me thousands. Be careful, she found my listing that was posted on my university's own "craigs list"-like site that you can only get to from the university's web page or if you know what it's called. Several of my friends who also posted rooms there received responses from her. Sickening...
