I've seen this so many times on here, I was so sad to find out that she was a scammer. I hadn't progressed far enough to actually be scammed out of anything, but what is it exactly that she's doing?

Through what I've seen, she goes under several different aliases but usually has the same writing style.
This was her second email to me:

Hello,
Thanks very much for e-mailing me back,i really appreciate it, am also
sorry for getting back to you late.. I am Kathleen cooper by name and
live in Seattle, WA. I would have been kind of happy if we can
meet,before making any plans,but am very busy and i have a lot of
things to do right now.. I will really appreciate it if you can tell
me more about the place and tell me little about you,because my uncle
is presently very sick,and i have to travel to Finland to see him,but
i want to secure the place down before going..He was involved in a car
crash with his new car some weeks back and now ill seriously , I need
to check on him and take good care of him.
I am staying in CHRMC Children's Hospital Seattle staff Quarters
now.The address is below:
4800 Sandpoint Way NE Seattle, WA 98105
I am moving cause of my job, am a medical Humanitarian nurse for
united Nations,I work for CHRMC Children's Hospital in Seattle but
will be working in a local clinic over there , More about me,am a neat
type of person,honest,humble and responsible. I like
honest,responsible,and hardworking people while i hate the lazy,messy
and uncaring people....well,am a quiet and gentle going person to live
with....I am 26 yrs old, 5.4 in height,i like tourism,and i don't keep
late at nights,neither i will have overnight guest around,but am ok if
you do..
I was born and brought up in Finland,i studied there,i had my
university education right there while staying with my uncle.. I lived
all my life in Finland before coming down to Seattle, WA have been
living with my uncle from age 13 ...Then i was member of the Red Cross
Association,it really sounds interesting for me...
Am sure You 'll really like the person that i am ,because i will also
do the dishing if you like,I work when i am to and relax when i am
to,I also like sharing my thoughts also....paying rent on time will
not be a problem as i will also be making the rent fee before the
month ends....
I do not have any pet, i really like dog and cat but have none of it
now, so there is no problem about that.
I must confess am comfortable with the price and I will want to secure
the place down before my arrival so i will want you to tell me all
about the place,as i can't see it before my arrival but the
pictures...I also will want you to know that i have my car that i will
be coming over with,and little of my furniture,please let me know if
there will be room for them..
With all that i ve said above,I have told you more about me and more
picture of mine will be attach in the next email,Let me also know how
i can go about securing the place down before my arrival as i will
also be busy from next week and let me know if you can take off the ad
off the site as i am going to secure the place with a deposit as soon

:?: I posted a room for rent and received the exact same email, though a picture was included, I think she, whoever she is is trying to steal peoples identity. Here's last email received:

Hi again ,
Thanks once again for the quick reply,I would have loved to call You
but am leaving now to see my sick uncle in Finland ,i can only
communicate through email but I

will, whenever i get there but before that i will want to secure the
place,I am very happy meeting a person like you,It 's nice reading
from you again and i will never

ever want to loose the room even without seeing the place ,I will want
You to know that i am okay with the cost ,if none is included
again.....
I got to believe that the person that one wants to live with matters
most,i believe that you'll be a nice person,I just have my
dressers,computer table,kitchen

utensils and a queen size bed,2 big luggage's and my car to be shipped....
I got a message that my uncle is sick in Finland,i hope have already
mention that before and i have to go see him but i am making plans to
secure place so that when i

come back i'll just move in into the place we are talking about. and
with the way we ve communicated,I am okay with you and i want you to
know that i don't want to

make any travel plans without securing a place down now,I will be
signing a year lease for the start if you are okay with that,so i ve
let my uncle understand more

about you and the place,He is really comfortable and he told me that
it is a nice area he had lived in the states before and he said that i
should not afford to loose

your place also he said that i should try and make sure that i hold
down the place,so i thought of it and i will be making payment to hold
down the place and the mode

of payment will be by United State Certified Money Order or cashier
check 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
work place address to ensure

delivery in your hands through regular mails or a courier service,your
phone number on the package to avoid package missing in transit. I
will prefer to send to your

work address because you will always be available at work from morning
till evening but if home address it will be sitting in your mail and
no one will be at home to

receive the package.And if you don't receive package at your office
address then I guess your home address will be good for the delivery
right ? But to avoid any delay

of you receiving at home then I guess any address will be fine as long
as you will be able to receive it.I will be moving to your place weeks
in April and help me take off the advert off craigslist so that other
rentors won't contact you ,Kindly get back to me with this requested
address contact information so that we can proceed asap bye for now..
Feel free to ask me any question(s) you have okay and please help me
take the advert off craigslists..
Thanks...

She will write you a bad check. You will collect the money. Next something will happen to her uncle which will make it impossible for her to come stay in the room. She will ask you for part of the money back. You can keep part of it for your efforts and the inconvenience she is causing you. You are asked to send the money through Western Union. Next thing the bank finds out the check is bad. You need to repay the bank and are out of the money you send to her.

5/3/11 - Lisa Chase just corresponded with me through my room to rent post on Craigslist for Orlando FL. Thought it was strange that the United Nations would send a humanitarian nurse to a clinic in Orlando. Good thing I checked a google search. She used the same email. Glad I didn't get trapped.

Anna Laidler and Rebbeca Cejas are also names that the person who identifies herself as
'Lisa Chase' uses. I just noiced now when I was typing this that she doesn't know how to spell 'Rebecca' !

From the way this is written it is obvious that the person behind it is African. Don't fall for this!
