Below is the email I received from my Craigslist posting. I reported her to Google.
Same exact email practically as many I have read on here. Scary!!!!

Tue, December 21, 2010 8:12:40 PMABOUT ME ---- Roommate
From: jessica smith <coreyjessicasmith.6@gmail.com> Add to Contacts


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I read your posting on Craigslist, and I am very interested in the room. It’s in the perfect location for me and it sounds like we could be great roommates. I will be arriving the state by earlier of the Next month just let me know when we can start the lease although i wont arrive the state until the earlier of January.

About me: I'm JESSICA SMITH female from Spain, 27, am currently working with the Federal Agency of Works and Natural Resources . I am pretty quiet and neat, but not obsessively so. I’m responsible and will pull my weight around the apartment and pay bills on time. I like to cook, and it would be great to have people to cook with or eat with, but it’s definitely not a requirement in a roommate. I don't smoke and I don't have any pets. I've got a lot going on this year, so i won't be around the apartment all that much. Mostly, I’d just like a place that I can come home to and chill at the end of the day. I am social, though, and get along well with most people. I probably won't have too many house guests, but I would like to feel comfortable bringing friends over once in awhile.

More so i would really want to secure the room before my arrival, and more so to know if it would be possible for me to pay for the room before my arrival,So i will like to know the total amount of the room per month and the utility included. All these information are very important so that i can submit my proposal to my Organization.My Organization will be responsible for all the fees and the payment . Please let me know if I can give you any more info that would be helpful for making your decision. I will be more than happy if you can tell me little about you too. I will also like to see more picture of the room if possible.

Thanks & God bless

Jessica Smith

Yeah I got this the other day. I unknowingly entertained them until I got this email today. "Hi

There noting much to fear about just consider the room rented to me
and the payment will be mail to you asap. As regards my car,i am
planning on having it delivered to the house before my arrival so
that i can settle in comfortably,you can understand that transiting
cross Atlantic is not easy so i am making arrangement with the car
dealer my car before my arrival after the rent and security deposit
has been paid to you by my financier. I will ask you for a favor here,
can i rely on you to take delivery of the car for me when they are
delivered?

I will instruct the person in charge of the delivery of the car to
contact you to schedule a delivery time that will be convenient for
you to receive the car for me .As you will be handling the delivery of
the car with the rent and deposit to be sent to you so that you can
help me to make the payment when they are delivered. I[/color] will really
appreciate if you can do this for me and promise to compensate you
adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival in your place.

I think they wanted me to store/pay for a car delivered to my house.

They would send you a cashier's check for the deposit and rent. After the check is deposited into your account, they will come up with a story (something happened and they are not going to be able to be your roommate now) and ask you to wire the money back to them. The bank will think the check is good, and you will be able to take the money out and wire it back to them . . . a week or more later the check will come up as counterfeit and then the bank will want YOU to pay it back.

It is hard to catch the scammers . . . so many of the are really overseas, and it would have to be the government and law enforcement in THAT country that would have to actually go after them.

I found this forum by doing a goggle search of Jennifer Justin Spain. I got the same scam email. In my response I mentioned I would require a background check on anyone I rent to. Won't be hearing back from this one will I? lol

"She" isn't from Spain. The writing has the typical style of a Nigerian writing in english.

Below is a copy paste of the email this person sent me..
from email address
coreyjessicasmith.6@gmail.com

below that is the email she sent me today!





I read your posting on Craigslist, and I am very interested in the
room. It’s in the perfect location for me and it sounds like we could
be great roommates. I will be
arriving the state by earlier of the next month just let me know when
we can start the lease although i wont arrive the state until 27th of
May.

About me: I'm Jessica Smith female from Spain, 28, am currently
working with the Federal Agency of Works and Natural Resources . I am
pretty quiet and neat,
but not obsessively so. I’m responsible and will pull my weight around
the apartment and pay bills on time. I like to cook, and it would be
great to have people to
cook with or eat with, but it’s definitely not a requirement in a
roommate. I don't smoke and I don't have any pets. I've got a lot

Organization.My Organization will be responsible for all the fees and
the payment . Please let me know if I can give you any more info that
would be helpful for
making your decision. I will be more than happy if you can tell me
little about you too. I will also like to see more picture of the room
if possible.

Thanks & God bless

Craigslit Scam from Cortney Lance (thrilldeal04@gmail.com, hopkinsvarify@gmail.com)

Thanks for your swift response about the room . I'm, Cortney Lance
Female, i am from Spain,specifically Malaga. I speak both English and
Spanish fluently, i am 26years of age i will turn to 27 by October
17th .I am currently working with the Federal Agency of Works and
Natural Resources in Spain. a non-smoker, don't do drugs, not a
drinker. I myself like to be home and on occasions sign up for
classes. I graduated last year , I am single and have no children.

However, I don't have dog..am coming back home (U.S.A ) for my masters
degree, during my stay i will be working with the United State
Environmental Protection Agency on a private research work, I was born
in Ormond Beach (Florida).my Dad is from there too but my Mum is from
Sacramento (CA). i would have love to call you but I cant get through
because of my Research area and i believe its a long distance call
issue.

Am really interested in renting from you and will really want to know
everything about the place. I do really love pets but i don't have any
at the moment. It will be a great pleasure seeing you soon.I think you
should let me know a lil about you too.I am currently on a research
programe,and i am desperately looking for a place to stay.I read your
profile about the room and i would really want to secure the room
before my arrival,and more so to know if it would be possible for me
to pay for the room before my arrival,i am ready to offer you the
first month rent fee + the first month security deposit fee to secure
the house prior to my arrival to the states, So i will like to know
the total amount of the room per month and the utility included am
looking to rent for the minimum of 6-12 months, also i am ready to
sign a year lease .All these information are very important so that i
can submit my proposal to my Dad.My Dad will be responsible for all
the fees prior my arrival and the payment will be by United State Bank
Cashier Check (NOT OUT OF STATE CHECK). I will need the following
information to facilitate out the rental payment to you .

(1) Full name as it will appear on the payment.
(2) Physical Address
(3) phone number

i'll pay for the remaining months by cash when i get to state. Please
Forward the lease agreement/application form for my Review. In my
opinion, appending signatories should be done properly and at best
physically when i get to the state and also the back ground check. But
i can assure you that i have a very good employment record..

I would be glad to see your quick response.
Thanks,
Cortney.

Hello,
Thanks for getting back to me with your information , (I will be
paying the first month rent). so i want you to secure the room the for
me till my arrival and i will also like you to keep off the ads from
craigslist so that nobody will contact you about the room again.So can
you tell me the nearest airport ?I will get back to you with the
tracking number as soon as i get it and my flight details.
Thanks

Thanks for getting back to me.As regards my car,i am planning on
having it delivered to the house before my arrival so that i can
settle in comfortably,you can understand that transiting cross
Atlantic is not easy so i am making arrangement with the car dealer
to deliver the car before my arrival after the rent and security
deposit has been paid to you by my Dad. I will ask you for a favor
here,can i rely on you to take delivery of the car for me when its
delivered.I will instruct the car dealer to contact you to schedule a
delivery time that will be convenient for you to receive the car for
me .As you will be handling the delivery of the car with the rent and
deposit to be sent to you so that you can help me handle the delivery
payment for the car...the delivery payment has been included with the
Check coming to you.I will really appreciate if you can do this for me
and promise to compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on
my arrival in your place..Hope to read back from you soon..

Thanks.
