I wonder what she/he/it gets out of this scam. I just sent Miss Vargas an email telling her that I will need to do a background check before we can proceed forward. I received ALL of the same emails that we have posted on this site. It is funny but what through me off was that she never put any spaces after her commas. I know that is a strange reason to be concerned; but it just seemed to me that someone who has gone through a nursing program would have taken general education classes and be able to punctuate. I also didn't think the picture was very believable. It seemed copied from the internet.

I decided to Google her name when I got back to the office and look what I found. Thank you all for posting your comments.

She/He/IT is currently using letvrg81b@aol.com

This is crazy. My co-workers told me to google Lecticia Vargas. However I wasn't planning to agree to the arrangement without meeting her and interviewing her, plus a credit check etc. So i finaly get the chance to google her and this is what I find. I was asking her if she currently had a job in Atlanta and she says no, she has a lot of money saved up. Whatever. I hope everyone does google searches. SO I posted the new picture she is using.

Well I have been scammed by Lecticia also. She told me she was living in Idaho and going to visit her sick Uncle in Canada and then come move in with me in Pennsylvania. I thought it was weird someone picking up and leaving and moving from the West coast to the East coast and not want to see pics of the house or ask any questions about the area. She sent me a different picture than the ones that are up here. I was pretty sure it was a scam with the bad grammer and avoiding questions and wanting to send me money so fast..... I had this weird gut feeling I saw the picture before. So I guess I was right another scammer!!!! Oh well it would have been nice to have a roommate. I can't understand why people do this kind of stuff....

I Had this happen to me on craigslist before someone wanted to "buy" my washer and dryer and ended up sending me a check to my work from some random company for $4000.00....... I called the company and they said many people were calling saying the same thing. All his e-mails had the bad grammer also.... Be careful everyone!!

Thank you dear people for saving my hide. I have been communicating with Leticia for several days and this morning she offered to send me a money order to hold the room I'm trying to rent. I've sent her so many requirements for renting the room and she's okayed all of them and I was wondering why.

My girlfriend got worried and told me to be careful. I googled Leticia's email address and found this website. Thank you to the folks who copy/pasted her emails as they are nearly identical to what she sent me.

For reference: she's now claiming she's an occupational nurse in Idaho, needs to visit her uncle in Canada and then is coming to the Seattle area. She said she only had a dresser, computer table, kitchen utensils which all fit in her car.

I'm shivering and again, thanking you all. My greatest wish is that she's stopped before she really hurts someone who doesn't see the red flags.

She listed on Craig's List Seattle that she was looking for a room and I replied. Please get the word out!

Hi,



I do appreciate your response,am very glad and want to thank you for getting back to me,I know that it is very important to know more about someone looking to rent from you,So this is a little bio about me.

About me- My name is Balderas Hugh and I am a friendly 25 year old female Canadian who works full time as an occupational Nurse/and i have an online data entry job, I am down to earth and easy to get along with. I am very respectful of others' space and opinions.

I strive for a drama free environment.

Now she is going by Jesicca Luis (jesiccaluis@aol.com), a Canadian Nurse with an online data entry job (possibly another email scan she's a part of?) looking to sublease from me in Michigan. Here's the email she sent me just now:

Hi,

I do appreciate your response,am very glad and want to thank you for getting back to me,I know that it is very important to know more about someone looking to rent from you,So this is a little bio about me.

so i wait to read from you asap...



The odd spelling of Jesicca clued me in, as well as her horrendous grammar. Luckily she's still using the same "Former Landlandy" as a reference so I was able to find this site. Thanks!

She is going by Jessica Luis still, same exact e-mail as posted below. I found this through googling the phone number and "Canada" I fell for it and I put my address, do you think that I should get a lawyer or be worried about anything??

I have not sent her any money, she's leasing from me, so she's sending me the "money". She has my full name and address though.

@ kileym2... Don't worry about it... once they are aware that you know what's going on and that you won't cash the phoney check and wire the "extra" back to her/him then they'll just move on to try and find another victim... just ignore and move on.

WOW! She strikes AGAIN, I can't begin to express how thankful I am for this website. Just gonna post my little story on here so others can see what is going on with this idiot nowadays. I go to Michigan state university, where we have a website were we can post sublease ads, roommate ads, look at professor ratings, a whole bunch of college stuff. So I get a message on the website for my 3 month sublease for my apartment. Email her back, and I get this email:

--Clearly, quite a few things wrong in this situation. Why are you 25 and your phone does not receive calls, if you are an occupational nurse clearly you should have at least some extra money to spend on a phone bill. The grammar is initially what threw me off as well, what 25 year old types like a fricken 3rd grader? And why the HELL is a Canadian looking to sublease an apartment in MSU for 3 months only?? What a joke. BUT I emailed her back, and this is what I got in response:

--All right Jessica, not only are you 25 with your phone line shut off but you are 25 and don't even have your own CHECKBOOK? Really? As if thats not sketchy enough. Creepy as HELL. But anyways, after this I went back onto the website where we post ads about subleases and I have an old message from a month ago, from the same email, but she says "I am Labelle Claudette" and continues with her story. So thats what originally got me to search the email online.... why do I have 2 messages from this idiot, from the same email, with each of them introducing themselves with a different name.. W-O-W



So everyone beware. Scary to think that this is going on around college students. Gosh.

Going by: Jesicca Luis, email:jessiccaluis@aol.com
Actually also received an email from her, introducing herself as "Labelle Claudette"
I go to Michigan State University and she found my ad on our college website and messaged me about it, this is just creepy.

What is the point of this scam? So confused, but I am so glad I found this website.. what is the world coming to?
