but i still don't get what they want?

I just got another email from "Lynda"but i'm not bothering answering anymore.

in the 2.5 months that she's been contacting me, she's never actually asked for anything... it just seems like a huuuuuge waste of time for these people! as if they literally don't have anything better to do than to write people with rooms for rent.

She's currently trying to scam me as we speak. She got my "roommate wanted" ad off of Craigslist, in Medford, Oregon! We have emailed back and forth and then what triggered it was she said she was in Alabama during Katrina, helping out there....she's going under the name of Jeni Walcot, a 26 yo peds nurse. I have more info if you need it. I tried to trace the IP address but just got AOL in VA.

but again, where u actually asked to send money or anything like that?
other than wasting your time , which in it's own is valuable, it doesn't seem like anyone's actually losing money or anything.

or am i wrong?

which again, just raises the question, what do these people really want?

They will play like they want to rent the room, and then make arrangements with you to send a check for the first few months rent and deposit. Once you have the check and you deposit it into your account they will suddenly have a problem come up and they will not be able to rent the room any more . . . . but since you already cashed the check and cannot send it back to them, they ask you to wire the money back to them. About a week later, the bank will call you and tell you that the check was counterfeit, and then YOU will be out the money.

It seems like the name from one of the previous pages, Faith Walcott, is still on the loose trying to 'buy' things from people. Heck i almost lost all my merchandise to her/him! Good thing I rejected that darn money order, otherwise she/he wouldve made money off of me with a fake check and the sad part wouldve been my merchandise long gone. I noticed that they kept emailing me from different 'faith4sure' e-mail addresses, and the dialogue was very rushed and nervous. FISHY!!~

I just posted an ad on Craiglist in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Within three hours, I received the following message from our dear friend Jenifer Walcot. Anytime someone addresses me as "leaser" and mentions my "advert", it causes some suspicion. So, after a quick search on Google, I found that I'm certainly not the only one she's contacted. Hope this scam doesn't actually net anyone (although I'm sure it has already).

She loves to play the Piano and the violin (how I am going to fit all her musical instruments in I don't know). She grauated from Limeric (thats an Irish Riddle right ?) I know Disney is hiring fictional characters maybe she can apply there.

I am so glad I googled her email address. katewille11@aol.com or "Katherine Williams" is apparently working overtime in trying to scam people looking to rent out their homes. :x

She has my name, cell and address. what can she do to me? I mean, how do I protect myself from her opening up a credit card and ruining my credit? or something else..

I am new to this so please any suggestions are appreciated.

Below in BOLD is her 2nd response.

If you are in the states notify the three credit reporting agencies and put a fraud alert on your credit report. You can add a statement on your report. I have on my credit reports, notify me at my address or call my phone number before extending credit.

It works, when I have applied for credit they will ask me questions only I would know followed up by a letter and/or phone call.

Good luck to you.
