Typical room rental scam. sent 3,700 cheque payable through National Bank of Canada, to Shelley Madison. Says he's in London, probably in Toronto or France. Phoned with sob story about mother dying. Poor fellow is now ready to 'move on'. Bank draft is false.. Laughable.
email for Andrew Whiff, shipping agent.:shipitfastuknownow@gmail.com

Is this guy still around? He got me back in February. He even called me at home and told me his whole sob story about his mother dying. I fell for it all...and was scammed 2500$. He changed his email address though. I can't understand how these people can never get caught....

They don't get caught because they are in another country, so it would have to be the government and law enforcement in that country that would have to see it as a problem and do something about it.

One day the Karma for these people will catch up with them Patrizia. In the meantime, I encourage them to send their cheques for anything they are responding to. Stretch it out. Keep them busy. I know they are getting their hopes up in anticipation of getting a return west. union sum of money. I turn the cheques over to the police. One day they will become entangled in their own web of deceit. In fact, it is already happening. Be of good cheer Patrizia.
Overall, it is companies like western union who are keeping these crooks in business by forwarding the money; the police seem to have little intelligence to deal with these people despite the large sums of money and the fact that it is outright fraud; and,the reluctance of victims to report the scam. This site and others are far and ahead doing more to stop these two-bit crooks than the police. These scams and an ineffectual police make the best case to take away the power and jurisdiction from the police and give it over to private and other agencies.

Looks like its the same guy making his rounds. Good thing I decided to check him out.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How are you doing?i appreciate your response.concerning the rental date,i will be happy if the rental could commence on 1st Aug ok.i will be happy if i can know how close the place is to a shopping mall with the cost of security deposit that i am to incur for the place,i hope to hear back from you soonest.
Regards Marc
-------then other messages....................................
Thanks for your response,i would have love to come around and view the place but due to the distance i wont be able to do that,i will be relocating to your province in a couple of weeks to settle,consequent to this and in order to make settling much easier for me when i arrive,i tried searching online to see if i would be able to find a place of my choice to settle when i arrive.i came across your advert while i was searching for an accommodation,i will be happy if reservation could be made for the place prior to my arrival.
Here is little info about me,i am Marc,28 years old presently based in the uk.i am a very respectful person and a matured individual who values people's opinion and also loves to be happy,because i feel happiness is a product of making someone happy,i am calm and collected by nature and i easily get along with people.I do not smoke but i drink very lightly,i will be coming alone with no family or pets.I have a job offer,and i have always wanted to live and work in North America,the pay is very good and i will be working as a data base administrator.i will be waiting to hear from you.
---------------------------
I am sorry not to have replied you mail earlier,i will mail you the needed information in the subsequent mail. My employer will be sending the payment to your location and I'll also be sending you the details as soon as i have it ok. This will enable you know when it will arrive. I will appreciate if you notify me as soon as it does.This is the first time I will be traveling to North America and I believe articulating myself with the cultural change will not be difficult as people like you will make me settle in easily. In the UK majority of us are conservatives and I believe Canada is an environment with more liberal and free thinking individuals
( and more beautiful ladies, LOL!!!).
i just hope hope my mom survives the surgery because she is all i have,i wouldn't want to loose her.i just hope she survives the surgery.I look forward to your response.
---------------------------
Most importantly my shipper will be getting in touch with you regarding shipping of my Honda Accord (2009) to your place and I have given him your contact.His name is Bern Shcaffer and he'll contact you by email.
His contact number he gave 447024033015.

Hello,
I am happy you responded to my email and I look forward to coming over
to Canada by August 24 but I can be flexible to your plans.
My employer will be sending you payment for the first and last month rent.
Also my shipper will be shipping my Honda 2009 model and other
Personal effects before I move into your place. I won’t be bringing much
over as I intend to buy most afresh there. But my PC will be coming
with me surely & other personal belongings.. If this is ok with you,
kindly mail me back your name to make out the payment in & your
address to have it sent to. I will need your number so we can
talk.

I will be off to see my sick mum in the hospital who is due for surgery soon.
In case you want to get to me my number is
+447024033015(Skype i.d is

I look forward to your response.
Yours Sincerely
Paul

Since they are in another country, there is little that can be done to catch them. It would have to be the government in that country that would have to go after them.

I would suggest blocking their email and just moving on knowing that they did nto get you, and share this information with others so that they know about these scams.

Hello ,
The unimaginable thing I feared most has happened to me.My mother
passed away this morning. I am the most distraught person on planet
earth but there is need for me to gather mental, physical and spiritual
strength at this trying moment.
My mother is the catalyst behind all my present achievements and I
have been 500% dependent on her for more future support.Why did she
have to go? Arrangements are being made and she will be laid to rest
on Sunday.
I told my employer about the news and he has given his condolences.
He made a mistake of sending Bern's(shipper) money along with your payment.
to your address,instead of sending it separately.What do we do about
that? Please
advise.
Paul
PS:My traveling plans still remain intact but there might be a shift
in my arrival date. Please bear with me.

i got the following today. from what i read here, he changed his tune a bit, i guess drama didn't work too well so he is into 'visceral love' now.


"Hello,
Just saw your ad and would be disposed to renting from you.

I was born in and raised in Europe 26 yrs ago and pretty much moved around Europe half of my life until my parents Decided to settle in England where I live now. I'm a matured, Vivacious, career driven individual. I do not smoke and drink are very sparse occasions (probably will not even consumes up to 5 liters in year) which might be buoyed something very special like a job promotion or maybe a best friend's wedding (lol).

I am also not opinionated and will never condemn anyone for their sexual, religious inclinations or what so ever important variables. I think the day we perceive ourselves beyond such crossing, there would be world peace and visceral love.

I plan on staying in Canada for at least 3 years minimum work because my contract is for two years and I will be working for Cross Bow Technology. So I should be able to sign a year contract there is need for it.

Kindly respond to my e mail when you can.
Have a spectacular day!
Paul

PS: "There is no way to peace, peace is the way."
