Hello there,
Am Amanda Wong by name, 27 years of age, Am from Richmond, BC. Very Gentle, I pocess a great Sense Of Humour, And i like Travelling to see new places most times. I respect people alot of which i expect the same in Returns,

I will be relocating to the United States Of American {U.S.A} soon to school in the United Nation Conference (U.N.A), This is the Exact reason why I am Writting to you, I would like to be the one to Rent the place you placed on Web,

I dont let people burst words into me anyhow, BUT......... I prefer people taking Excuses from me, Am not a long thing person, Very straight forwarding, I do not smoke at all and coming to see the place wont be possible for now as am still at my Vacational Place. Am not moving to the States now as i still have some things to get done here, So every form or application will be filled out by me when i get to the States in person cos i do not have a Fax nor scanner here where i am.

Here is my Company's Website if you care to know more about me
http://www.canimun.org/ModelUN/english/pr.shtml

I have Checked and Rectified the price and am Convinent with it all, I Am ready to pay for the place If you would accept me as your Renter, The next step i need to know now is how you want the payment for the Availabe Apartment, My Boss is responsible for making the Payment Cos he's the one who decided that i get more lessons in my work Field.

He's from the States and he leaves the States very soon with his New Wife for "Honey Moon" Therefore get back to me with your full name and addresses so he can make payment out to you in form of Check or Money Orders, It takes 3 days Maximum to clear a Check and Money Order is an Instant cash, So if it is Check i will have to wait for 3days and then Move in. Let me know if this meets your Need.

Please do not reply if my explanation does not meet your needs
Amanda Wong.

I just got scammed... I just got in touch with the authorities (fbi & secret service), and i'm awaiting the call back from secret service now. thankfully i did NOT cash the 4 money orders that were sent to me after being told I was to wire 2000 to Ghana. (this is after the piece of sh*t told me that I'd be working for US clients). grrrrr! And...this is all because I had replied to a job posting on Craigslist in which sounded very legitimate. It was for Bookkeeping. I hope these scammers burn in hell.

Funny, I never create an account on message sites like this but I got an e-mail from "Dorah" after posting an apartment for rent on Craigslist.

"She" replied and it seemed fishy. I did a google search for her e-mail address and got one hit -- this thread on this site.

Anyway, just thought I'd say "hi" and let you know I got the same BS reply.

I told her to 'f off' but the e-mail bounced. I guess yahoo killed her account.

Just wanted to give a heads-up that I got the same initial email from Dorah Johnson. Thought it was pretty conspicuous because she wanted images, which were bountifully provided on my ad.

My apt ad was posted for Boston, too, by the way. So if she is looking urgently to rent from you in some other city, you know it's fake.

Also for fun, I found this on a google for her name: http://www.wedatefree.com/profile.php?ID=1000 Apparently she'll scam you via personal ad, too, if she can.

I believe I just got three off of Craigslist. One of them claims to be from Spain, so she just got an e-mail in Spanish. Of course, even if "she" does reply in Spanish, I still doubt the legitimacy since she is in *le gasp* Nigeria. :roll:

The second one claims to be involved with humanitarian research helping orphans with heart problems in Australia, which "she" claims is a major source of problems for youth. Call me crazy, but I could've sworn that heart problems were highly uncommon in youth under the age of 16, especially not being extremely major problems in children between 4-11. At the very least, "she" is exaggerating its prominence.

I'm erasing the information they sent to me from the message before replying. Sure, they can check what they said before if they saved copies, but it made it a lot simpler. I already caught discrepancies in the third individual's information, after sending just one reply.

I'll add them up to the lists depending on their replies.

Edit: And here we go. I'm just posting the first e-mail I received from each although it was their replies that really gave them away.

Hi,

How are you doing? Guess fine I presume. Am writing you in regards to your advert on Craigslist.com and I'm interested in your room apartment, Am from Australia and I will be having some seminars coming up soon in US. Right now am working for a Non Government Organization on a program on children with orphans and heart related probs.

My next program/seminars will be in US and I will need a room to stay for these seminars, so I want to secure a room before my arrival to the states. I can't wait to arrive to US cause I’ve heard a lot about US.Moreso I will be staying for the period of 12-13 months, Pls do get back to me with the room description, move in rent fees for the first month, Utilities and deposit if included. And if any picture of the room is available, kindly attach it with your reply please.

Hope to read from you. Have a wonderful and productive day.


The final one still has yet to reply.

OK, I posted an ad on Craig's List for a roommate and got two responses from people that are trying to type in English but failing a bit along the way. They came from Linda Marcos lindabrabar01@hotmail.com and Rachel Robert realbabys4f@hotmail.com, and both sounded too good to be true, so I suspected that they were.
So, what is it that they are looking for? I gave the first one my name and address but nothing more. Is that enough for them to do something with? Or am I being set up for something else?
Thanks,

What they are after is a person to send fake checks too. What they will say is the money is for the security deposit/first months rent. The checks will be for well over what they say you are to keep and then they want you to send the rest to their "shipping company" for payment of shipping their stuff to your apartment. Then you get a call from your bank saying the checks are fake and you are out the money plus you have to pay back your bank.

So if you get checks in the mail that you are not expecting DO NOT cash them. As for your name and address there isn't too much they can do with that other than send you fake checks, money orders, etc. Just make sure you know who sent them to you and if you don't then throw them away.

Thanks, wasn't sure what the scam was, just was pretty certain there was one. I feel kind of left out, have only received two responses to my ad so far.
The first one was going pretty well until I asked for local references, sponsor, etc., then she shut up. LOL
Keep the faith.

I just got a few e-mails form a post I put on Craig's List. Some of them sound EXACTLY like some of these (scary). And some sound similar and fishy. So I'll post them with the e-mails so hopefully someone can get a heads-up. Luckily, I caught on as soon as they asked for me to send THEM money from a money order etc...

I almost wrote to the one from 'Spain' in Spanish too! lol

made in full via Certified Bank Cashier's Check or
Money Order and that will stand as commitment ahead my
arrival. So i will inform him to issue out the check
to you, so that the check can stand as the payment of
the room. All you got to do now is to send me your
full name name, contact address and phone number so
that i can forward it to my client who will issue the
check out to you. As soon as i get these info i
requested for, i will forward them to my client
immediately. As soon as you recieve the check you will
deduct the frist month out of it you will now help me
forward the remaning balance to my traveling manager
so that i can use it to book for my flight back to the
states. I just want to make sure i get the room before

#3----"Deborah Desmond"---deborah_des@yahoo.com

About me:

There were more but I can't be sure so I don't feel it'd be fair to them if they're genuine.
I would just be wary of foreigners. (Obviously there are genuine inquiries but most seeme like these scams)
And never send anyone money!!!!

Hi… I posted an add on CL for room for rent in Southern California. Dorah Johnson answered to undisclosed recipients asking if it was still available :? . The subject was Re: INQUIRY ABOUT YOUR HOUSING IN OR AROUND CALIFONIA and her email is sistadorah@yahoo.com . I replied advising I will take in count only individuals that can interview in person. I remembered receiving e-mails with this kind of subject when I was renting the room last year so googled her name, now I found this forum and thought I would share the info :| . Craig’s list is right, avoid scams by dealing locally.

Have nice day!
:wink:

Hi there,
I am presently in Bangladesh for a business workshop and there a very few things I can do from here meanwhile my son's birthday is around the corner.I live in Rogers,AR but my family live in West Africa while I would like to get this laptop to him as a birthday gift.I will be paying you through paypal because they obviously protect both buyers and sellers.Let me know how much you want to sell this to me and also you have to delete the auction off craigslist immediately because am interested in buying it immediately.I will also take care of the shipment by emailing you the prepaid shipping label which you will print out and take to the post office with the package to ship it without paying a penny.You can also add me to your yahoo messenger so we can talk more about it.My yahoo ID is shinefon1@yahoo.com.

Thanks and God bless.

Am referring to ur laptop on craigslist.
