Scammers on Craigslist

I saw this on another person's blog:  http://www.rentingoutrooms.com/ and thought it was a great idea; so I'm going to do the same thing.

Whenever I encounter a scammer on Craigslist, I'm going to post their email address here so the google bots will pick it up.  If you are doing business on Craigslist and something or someone sounds too good to be true, google, google, google.

Oh! I just found this entire blog dedicated to outing Craigslist Scammers:
http://craigslistscammer.blogspot.com/

And another:
http://craigslistofscammers.com/

These people are running scams on Craigslist:

  2. I got an email from Chrisette Middleton at [bodysette@gmail.com].

    Seeing this blog was enough to dissuade me from replying. the email was simple and had no contact information. It was already in my spam filter so i wouldn't be suprised if it was a scam.

    Thanks! Great Blog.

  7. It look very strange for me that I posted my ad in craiglist and just few minutes after I received and email from Chrisette Middleton and I started to look for this name and found out that is a scammer, her email address is tonset0@gmail.com

    2. I wish I had seen this earlier today. I got the same exact email today from "jessina lorenzo" atjessina2009@hotmail.com. I actually replied and told her about my hobbies and stuff since it is a house share and she told me a little about herself. So, what do they do with that information? It's not like I gave anything too personal away, but it is creepy.

      What is the point of this kind of scam? I don't get it. Does anyone know?

    3. That is the same e-mail I got except a different name. When we looked up th number we found that it was a scam. Thank you all for posting this.

  14. This one is a car scam: I found a too good to be true deal on craigslist. I'm a skeptic so I received an invoice and instructions. I did some research, sent the invoice to spoofmail@ebay.....they confirmed it was not real, I then sent the person email with concern they were being scammed. I did not receive a reply, I sent another email that "yes, I did not think I would receive an answer to that."

    About 20 min later I did receive, a not so nice answer about sucking someone's something.

    Hi again,


    As I've told you, at this moment I am in Alaska in a military base. I do
    a special training program each day and I am not allowed to get out of
    the unit or call whenever I want. The reason I'm selling this vehicle
    way below market value, is because I would like to help ease the burden
    of my sisters medical expenses, which she has acquired due to a serious
    illness.


    The shipping will take 3 to 5 days and it’s not a problem because I will
    have the vehicle shipped by an Air Force cargo plane so there won't be
    any additional shipping costs. Also I will arrange for a truck to
    transport the vehicle to your home address. You will receive it along
    with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys,
    full service records and more. Because it is a large transaction, we
    will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like eBay
    because I already prearranged the whole process with them. The vehicle
    is located in their warehouse in Anchorage (sealed and ready for
    delivery). The money must be sent first to an eBay agent and will be
    kept safe until the buyer receives and inspects the vehicle. I will
    offer a 5-day period to inspect the vehicle from the moment you receive
    it (and the option to accept or reject the vehicle on my expense),
    before I'll have your money. I think this is more than fair for both of
    us.


    If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping
    address. I will forward your info to eBay and they will notify you about
    our deal. They will let you know what you have to do for the payment.
    Like this you'll be able to talk directly with them and ask all you want
    to know.

  18. I also got an email from Chrisette Middleton bellunlimited@hotmail.com regarding my room for rent. Unfortunately I responded sharing all my contact info before I did some research which lead me to this site which I think is great.

    Still, I am wondering what kind of scam Chrisette Middleton it tied to and if I already did anything to put myself in danger.?.?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Basically, what they do is send you a fake cashier's check for more than the agreed upon amount. Then you deposit the fake check and withdraw the overage amount to send back to them. They get real money, you don't. Then the bank, who didn't notice it was a fake check, tries to make you liable for the mistake, basically.

  21. I just wrote a post on this scammer on Yahoo Questions and Answers. Chrisette Middleton uses other names as well. My conclusion is to never deal with anyone who says they are relocating. I only respond to local numbers now and never meet anyone in my home, never give out my information and when I callthem I turn off my caller ID so they cannot see my phone number.

    Read my post about this woman:

  22. Great information, Lalo. I didn't know I could report them to the FBI. So far, I've been pretty lucky in that the scammers are easy to spot and haven't caused me any trouble other than being annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  23. These scammers need to be reported, they can be pfishing and stealing ID's or scamming people out of money. Report to the list of agencies listed on craigslist "about scams" page. All the links are there. Who knows how many people they are scamming. There are men doing it too:

  24. To all thank you for the information, I posted an AD on craiglist and tijilady@aol.com reply to the posting.I guess I should have check before responding to the email!!!! I did not give my address but I did give some information about my self. What do I have to do to protect my self?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Craigslist has a document about scammers that pretty much reminds you to only deal locally. I think that's the biggest thing right now. Don't give out your personal info and only deal with locals paying in cash.

  29. red flag 1 they are out of this country much less your town or city, red flag 2 each email comes from a new address like this one
    Thanks for the cordial response. I have to take my chances because not risking at all is the worst mistake, I'm quite comfortable with the available unit and it's living environment. I would have loved to call you but my cellphone service provider can't access long distance international calls. My Current address: 40 Northampton Road London EC14 0HB England.

    About me .... I'm a single 31 self employed.. I deal in antiques and artifacts, I'm 5'11 long hair, hazel eyes with a athletic build. I prefer cleanliness than any other traits, I'm honest, responsible and hardworking while I dislike lazy, messy and uncaring people. I love pets so much, am quiet and easy going. I'm straight and also gay friendly. I always love to go on a date but seldom party. I neither smoke nor drink, I swim for fun and sometimes play tennis also, I enjoy snowboarding.

    Hope we can get along together though I know it kinda hard expressing oneself via email, but I'll put my pride in the gutters and try to be as explicit as possible.

    I must confess that I am comfortable with the price, I will like to secure the place down pending my arrival.. I'll also be shipping my things down to the States and some personal effects. don't worry am not bringing in Furniture's I will easily purchase the one's I need when I arrive.

    Moreover, Let me know how I can go about securing the place down and filling any necessary paperwork before my arrival as I'll be busy preparing to come over as I plan to arrive.

    Reference: Doctor Right. denisright_redcross@yahoo.co.uk

    Right now I have thought of it and understood that moving to the US will not only help boost my business but also improve my personal life. I hope you'll finally consider renting to me, I assure you that the rules and terms would be strictly adhered to. I have been introduced to different landlord and room owners but they don't seem easy to get along with, I hope we can get along well as I wait to read from you soon via email.

    Sorry for the email novel. I know its a lot to read and I apologize for coming on strong I'm just looking for a reliable place when I move down. I look forward to hearing positive from you again. Have a splendid day.

    Subject: RE: ROOM/SHARED




    Thanks for the cordial response . I am quite comfortable with the available rental and living environment.
    Hope we can get along together though I know it's kinda hard expressing oneself via email, but I'll put my pride in the gutters and try to be as explicit as possible. I have plans moving in by 10th of Jan(2012) but won't mind if rent start counting sooner.

    About me ...I am half Brit from dad and half Asian from mum, am 29yrs old, a science teacher and divorced female, mostly spend my time in the laboratory experimenting, I am educated(undergraduate and post graduate degree), a good christian,very low key and relaxed to live with. I DON'T smoke nor drink and I don't mind if flat mates do. Presently staying at 35 St James Ave, Sutton, Greater London SM1 2, UK
    I prefer cleanliness than any other traits, I'm honest, responsible, and hardworking while I dislike lazy, messy and uncaring people. I love pets so much though I don't have one, am a quiet and easy going person to live with. I always love to go on a date but seldom party. I swim for fun and sometimes play tennis, also I enjoy snowboarding. I must confess that I am comfortable with the price. I'll like to secure the place down pending my arrival.. I will also be shipping my things down to the States such as my Toyota Matrix (XL 2010)which I've been using for over 6 months now, and some personal effects. Don't worry am not bringing in furniture's as I will easily purchase upon arrive. Moreover, let me know how I can go about securing the place down before my arrival as I'll be busy this month preparing to come over as soon as the room is available and payment is made.
    To assure you that I am as good of a lady as email will allow one to portray, I would offer my willingness to assist you with any information you may need as regards to me. I am actually a coffee drinker addict:), I hope you enjoy also. My uncle has agreed to make total payment for the rent fee including shipping of my Car with personal effects, he will be mailing out payment to you in United States Money Order on his business trip abroad(US) to hold the room for me before my arrival. This will show seriousness on my part for the room so you won't rent it to someone else.
    Should you agree to receive payment via Money Order in US dollars, kindly advise me of your full name ,contact address (either work or home address depends on where you assure to receive it in person )and contact telephone #

    For references, kindly contact below:
    Former landlord :Bowie Ferguson(bowiefergie1963@yahoo.com)
    Roommate:Linda Rose(lin.rose147@gmail.com)

    Right now I have thought of it and understood that moving to the US will not only help boost my career but also improve my personal life. I hope you will finally consider renting to me, know well that your rules and terms would be strictly adhered to. I have been introduced to different landlords and room owners but they don't seem easy to get along with, I hope we can get along well as I wait to read from you soon via email.

    Sorry for the email novel. I hope it isn't a lot to read and I apologize for coming on strong, am just looking for a reliable place when I move down. I look forward to hearing positive from you again. Stay blessed.

    Thanks and take care,
    Susan.

    1. That's the SAME 'girl' I got. She is the one who sent a pic. I wonder if the real girl in the photo knows her picture is being passed around. it would really suck if the real person tried to really rent a place and the landlord saw her photo from Craigslist scams. I wanted to post her pic on CL to warn people but then I thought about the real girl in the picture.

  59. so all I had fun with wendygarbas4@gmail.c​om
    I got the same email but the scammer actually responded to me several times. I sent the name of the local chief of police and the police address for the silly scam.
    Whew what a fun run of emails I have had
    1, I got same letter posted above about her being from china and living in guam.
    so I sent her this: You send me a year in advance I give you 2 months off rent. This is $4000.00 with a $200.00 deposit. and then you add a little above that -- feed it to me at $10,000.00.
    I so happy to cash check and send extra funds in return to you so you will have AMERICAN money to go to US. I know it is important for you to have US money. Trains and buses leaving from Guam to USA only will take US money. It is vitally important that you get back to me immediately as this is a limited time offer and carries no guarantees. I will immediatly consider my room rented to happy woman from across ocean. Very excited to do business with you and hope your KARMA returns all you deserve back to you.
    You best buddy in all the world...

    LOL scammer actually responded:
    Thanks for the please information ... I have forwarded your details to my Dad and payment will be processed and sent out anytime from
    now.I shall get back to you with the tracking number and my flight information once I have it.I would like you to let me know the best
    time to come as i believe Sundays are always alright for traveling but i would like to hear from you so i know the best time to come down
    there so you could help pick me up at the airport if you are available.Can you also let me know the nearest airport to you? Please
    try and take the AD off craigslist finally so as to avoid any inconveniences.
    As regards my car,i am planning on having it delivered to your house before my arrival so that i can settle in comfortably,you can
    understand that transiting cross Atlantic is not easy so I'm making arrangement with the car dealer to deliver the car before my arrival
    after the rent and security deposit has been paid to you by my Dad. I will ask you for a favor here,can i rely on you to take delivery of
    the car for me? when its delivered.As you will be handling the delivery of the car with the rent and deposit to be sent to you so that you can help me handle the delivery payment for the car...The delivery payment will be included with the Check coming to you.I will really appreciate if you can do this for me and promise to compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival to your
    place.some pics attach.and i will want you too to email me one or two pics to see how beautiful you are... Thank you once again

    well I just had to respond so here is the letter I sent to the scammer:
    I am please to offer you more service. I am so happy to take your car when it becomes delivered to my door.
    The ad on craigslist will be at end soonest and as I happily will have roommate. I too want to avoid incontinence.
    Sundays are good for me to come get you from airport. When will you arrive? The closest one is 1 hour from my address.
    I am happy to have such a beautiful roommate as outer beauty is much more important to me, as an American, then inner honesty and wisdom.
    As soon as I am at my personal computer I will send my photo as I know how important my looks are for renting a room to you.
    Thanks for your business with me.
    LOL!
    and she still has the local police address to send stuff too so with any luck they will take care of the problem
    Still laughing...Wise Oldragon...

    Probably nothing to be worried about. Most of these scams involve mailing phony checks over the amount requested and then having the recipient send them the overage in real money. Just ignore any other contact.

However, as soon as she/he started asking me to deposit money ("she" sent a check to my house) and send a Western Union wire, I got suspicious and googled "her" because everything seemed really fast and too trusting. I also received calls all day from a BLOCKED number and an email from "her" threatening to go to the FBI, which is ridiculous since I have not attempted to cash the check and I have reported all of this to every person/office/organization I can think of. I am not surprised, I just wish we weren't constantly having to watch our backs all the time :( oh well, just glad I caught on! Thank you for creating this blog!

  73. Same thing happend to me!!! I can't believe I waited til I deposited the check to look up the email addresses. I received emails from lindascott562@gmail.com and then started reviving them from lindascott6754@yahoo.com. I didn't notice anyone having the 2nd one in the list do I'm thinking this is a new one this person is using. I aske the bank for verify the funds and they couldn't. The check has a hold on it so I don't have to worry about spending the money. This scammer has made me crazy trying to get her t him whoever to talk to me on the phone. Won't do it. I told her she can't move in and she completely disregarded my email and said she's still coming and the movers will be here to deliver her things. Sent me $3000.00 wanting me to give $2000 to the movers when they show up. Wow!!! I told her if anyone shows up at my house the police will be called. She emailed me her aleged adress and i Already called the police in St Albans Vermont told me nobody by the name of Linda Scott lives at 85 Fairfield st. St Albans Vermont. I am fearful of someone coming to my house however I do have two pit bulls and an alarm system. Just freaks me out!!!

  76. These scammers make me crazy. I doubt anyone will show up at your house, though. There's no way these people could manage to have people showing up all over the USA. I'm having new issues with people who have local phone numbers. On four occasions, I've communicated with people who say they are coming to purchase an item I have for Craigslist. But they never show up. I honestly don't know what they would need my address for, though. So, I can't figure out if these are just rude people or scammers. But I do check all names and emails before replying.

  81. Thanks for this... happymichelle12@gmail.com almost got me too. I caught it before any money was transferred. The scammer clearly thinks I am an idiot as they have threatened to involve the police if I do not give back her money. I responded simply by letting the scammer know that I have already considered involving the FBI.

    For those of you who have been scammed, PLEASE report your experiences to the IC3 (run by the FBI) as they are working to shut these scammers down.

No questions asked...really?! That's exactly why I googled the name immediately this morning. Then they always sign with "kindest regards." So transparent!

  118. (Heres mine) received an email about a house but the "owners" are in Africa an want me to wire money. I was going to at first but did some re search.And quickly changed my mind. Also after the person trying to scam me said that the house was empty. Which was not because I actually went an checked. Everyone just be careful who you deal with on line. Heres some emails they sent me.



    I must confess that I am very very new in this landlord business.However, My name is kay l bergstrom,I own the house located at () Due to my job as a missionary I spent less time in the States so I could not get a hold on any Realtor to handle this rent issue, although it was when I knew how long we are going to stay in Africa that I decided to rent out the house and i will be here for (4-5 years).. However,the initial plan was to sale out the apt.which I tried, but some times the agents inflates the prize and it takes longer to sell i am telling you this in case if you find the house on another website,that is the old advert. because of this reason and more we need rental rental agreement a responsible person (With good credit) that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money , but want it to be clean and for you to take of it as if it were yours The rent is $700 and $700 for Security Deposit For this 3BR/2BAth/.

  119. I got an email from the "Tina Aadolfiina Jones." She used "tina_jones20092000@yahoo.com" and "
    jonesttina4@gmail.com" in the same series of emails. I found out about her on this site and then today I got another similar email/name that didn't pull any search results in google, but I just saw her listed on this page...

    Hello,
    Is the room still available? Please let me know ASAP.
    Elizabeth.

    She gives just as much personal information as the Tina scammer... including her height and about how she likes dating but not going out much. Weird. Anyway, I'm always suspicious of the bad grammar and spelling from scammers, but I also caught it because it came from the email address "janepoman1234@gmail.com" first even though her scammer name is "Elizabeth Michael" ... later it came from "elizabethmicheal@hotmail.co.uk." Oh and she also gave out references??

    "For references reason,kindly contact below: Former landlord :John Curtis(j.curtis012@yahoo.co.uk)
    Roommate:Charles Chod(charles1maker@gmail.com)"

    I recently got so paranoid about all the scammers, that I think I accused a real person of being a scammer. She had strange grammer, was overly excited, and kept telling me she was a "good christian" which made me really suspicious. She wound up telling me she was a 19 year old mother... which could explain the lack of education and the hyper emails. But yeah... It's like I can't trust anyone anymore.

    Good luck, everyone!

    I'm interested in the available rental, presently I reside in Doncaster,UK and would be relocating to the US soon. I know I'll need to secure the rental prior to my arrival to show seriousness on my part. I would have called to discuss the rental but my phone service provider won't allow me make long distance calls.
    Hope we can get along together though I know it's kinda hard expressing oneself via email, but I'll put my pride in the gutters and try to be as explicit as possible. I have plans moving in by 10th of July(2012) but won't mind if rent start counting sooner.

    About me ...I am half Brit from dad and half Asian from mum, am 29yrs old, a science teacher and divorced female, mostly spend my time in the laboratory experimenting, I am educated(undergraduate and post graduate degree), a good christian,very low key and relaxed to live with. I DON'T smoke nor drink but don't mind if flat mates do. Presently staying at 4 Bennetthorpe, Doncaster, DN2 6AD, United Kingdom.
    I prefer cleanliness than any other traits, I'm honest, responsible, and hardworking while I dislike lazy, messy and uncaring people. I love pets so much though I don't have one, am a quiet and easy going person to live with. I always love to go on a date but seldom party. I swim for fun and sometimes play tennis, also I enjoy snowboarding. I must confess that I am comfortable with the price. I'll like to secure the place down pending my arrival.. I will also be shipping my things down to the States such as my Toyota Matrix (XL 2010)which I've been using for over 6 months now, and some personal effects. Don't worry am not bringing in furniture's as I will easily purchase upon arrive if needed. Moreover, let me know how I can go about securing the place down before my arrival as I'll be busy this month preparing to come over as soon as the room is available and payment is made.
    To assure you that I am as good of a lady as email will allow one to portray, I would offer my willingness to assist you with any information you may need as regards to me. I am actually a coffee drinker addict:), I hope you enjoy also. My uncle has agreed to make total payment for the rent fee including shipping of my Car with personal effects, he will be mailing out payment to you in United States Money Order on his business trip abroad(US) to hold the room for me before my arrival. This will show seriousness on my part for the room so you won't rent it to someone else.
    Should you agree to receive payment via Money Order in US dollars, kindly advise me of your full name ,contact address (either work or home address depends on where you assure to receive it in person )and contact telephone #

    For references, kindly contact below:
    Former landlord :Bowie Ferguson(bowiefergie1963@yahoo.com)
    Roommate:Linda Rose(lin.rose147@gmail.com)

    Right now I have thought of it and understood that moving to the US will not only help boost my career but also improve my personal life. I hope you will finally consider renting to me, know well that your rules and terms would be strictly adhered to. I have been introduced to different landlords and room owners but they don't seem easy to get along with, I hope we can get along well as I wait to read from you soon via email.

    Sorry for the email novel. I hope it isn't a lot to read and I apologize for coming on strong, am just looking for a reliable place when I move down. I look forward to hearing positive from you again. Stay blessed.

  133. Just got this from the same nuber listed at the top.
    Hi,
    Thanks for your response to my previous email.I will like to tell you a lil about me..I was born and brought up in UK...mom from India and dad from Spain.I am quiet and easy going person to live with. I'm 32 years old of age, I am extremely clean,quiet and respectful, I am a sensitive, intelligent, patient and caring person,have a good sense of humor and am easy to get along with.I don't drink nor smoke,no pets,I'm a very busy woman also.I admit I am not perfect but I try to leave things in a condition so that others are not inconvenienced.

    I need to secure this room for myself before i arrive to the state as I'll be moving in with my luggage.I must confess to you that you will enjoy my stay in your home.Well my name is Belinder Gerald,I am a chemist by profession and i am currently working with Southern General Hospital 1345 Govan Road,Glasgow G51 4TF.I am married with a kid.Although they will not be coming with me to the state.I will travel to Glasgow Scotland to visit them once in a while.

    I will be in the states by the middle of July for the next one year and during my stay i will be working with the United State Environmental Protection Agency on a private research work....It will be a great pleasure seeing you soon.I think you should let me know a lil about you too.You can reach me on +447035907855 anytime.I would have called you earlier but my phone cannot make international calls.

    Sincerely,

    Belinder

    Here is my reponse:

    I have thoroughly looked into your background and your internet address and the e-mail below originated in Ghana. I can find no record of you at Southern General Hospital in Glasgow and the U.S. EPA shows no record of offering you a position for chemist or anything else.
    If I am wrong please send me an explanation and proof. I also was in the telecom industry and every telephone in Scotland is enablers for international calling. If iI am wrong please respond, if not nice try, better luck finding another sucker.

  136. Wow! I've not seen a letter such as yours before. It's good to see the scammers are branching out in creativity. Don't worry, though. I doubt they can do anything with that information. Their next step will be to tell you they are sending you a check written for over the agreed upon amount. You are to deposit the check and send them a check back for the overage amount. The check they send you will be phony and you will lose money. So, don't deposit the check. That's if they even get that far.

She claimed her father would be paying her bills, so I responded & requested her father's name, phone number & contact info... and the name of the "university" she would be attending (they might want to pick town with more than one college if they're going to claim to be earning a master's in microbiology! LOL). In response, I rcvd her "father's" email. It is er239923@gmail.com.
    I thanked her for her time & told "her" I would be sure to post both addresses as many places on the web as I could find for reporting scammers :-)
    Thanks for keeping up the good fight!

    Asking for available rooms to rent. Email sounded vague and was sent to "undisclosed recipients" (= scammer AND spammer).

  147. For those curious about how these scams work - what happens is they will send you a check for OVER the amount of the purchase or rent. They will then ask you to send them a check for the overage. So, the rent is $400 and they send a check for $500. You then send them a check for $100. But, the check they sent you is phony. And now you are out $100.

  148. Received this email in response to my craigslist room for rent ad:

    Thanks for the cordial response . I am quite comfortable with the available rental and living environment.
    Hope we can get along together though I know it's kinda hard expressing oneself via email, but I'll put my pride in the gutters and try to be as explicit as possible. I have plans moving in by 25th of September (2012) but won't mind if rent start counting sooner.

    About me ...I am half Brit from dad and half Asian from mum, am 31yrs old, a science teacher and divorced female, mostly spend my time in the laboratory experimenting, I am educated(undergraduate and post graduate degree), a good christian,very low key and relaxed to live with. I DON'T smoke nor drink and I don't mind if flat mates do. Presently staying at 15 denbigh close sutton, London sm1 2hs, UK
    I prefer cleanliness than any other traits, I'm honest, responsible, and hardworking while I dislike lazy, messy and uncaring people. I love pets so much though I don't have one, am a quiet and easy going person to live with. I always love to go on a date but seldom party. I swim for fun and sometimes play tennis, also I enjoy snowboarding. I must confess that I am comfortable with the price. I'll like to secure the place down pending my arrival.. I will also be shipping my things down to the States such as My Nissan Maxima which I've been using for over 6 months now, and some personal effects. Don't worry am not bringing in furniture's as I will easily purchase upon arrive. Moreover, let me know how I can go about securing the place down before my arrival as I'll be busy this month preparing to come over as soon as the room is available and payment is made.

    To assure you that I am as good of a lady as email will allow one to portray, I would offer my willingness to assist you with any information you may need as regards to me. I am actually a coffee drinker addict:), I hope you enjoy also. I forwarded our email conversations to my Uncle he seems okay with you, he agreed to make total payment for the rent fee including shipping of my Car with personal effects, he will be mailing out payment to you in United States Certified Money Order on his business trip abroad(US) to hold the room for me before my arrival. This will show seriousness on my part for the room so you won't rent it to someone else.

    Should you agree to receive payment via Certified Money Order in US dollars, kindly advise me of your full name ,contact address (either work or home address depends on where you assure to receive it in person )and contact telephone #

    For references, kindly contact below:
    Former landlord :John Curtis(J.curtis012@yahoo.co.uk)
    Roommate:Charles Chod(charles1maker@gmail.com)

    Right now I have thought of it and understood that moving to the US will not only help boost my career but also improve my personal life. I hope you will finally consider renting to me, know well that your rules and terms would be strictly adhered to. I have been introduced to different landlords and room owners but they don't seem easy to get along with, I hope we can get along well as I wait to read from you soon via email.

    Sorry for the email novel. I hope it isn't a lot to read and I apologize for coming on strong, am just looking for a reliable place when I move down. I look forward to hearing positive from you again. Stay blessed.

    Thanks and take care,
    Debra.

    I emailed back and said it was "still very much available" eh hm. Didn't know what to do with that wording

    Her 2nd Response:
    Hi,
    Thanks for your swift response about the room . I'm, Debra Hutson
    Female, i am from Spain,specifically Malaga. I speak both English and Spanish fluently, i am 24years of age i will turn to 25 by October 17th .I am currently working with the Federal Agency of Works and Natural Resources in Spain. a non-smoker, don't do drugs, not a drinker. I myself like to be home and on occasions sign up for classes. I graduated last year , I am single and have no children.

    However, I don't have dog..am coming back home (U.S.A ) for my masters degree, during my stay i will be working with the United State Environmental Protection Agency on a private research work, I was born in Ormond Beach (Florida).my Dad is from there too but my Mum is from Sacramento (CA). i would have love to call you but I cant get through because of my Research area and i believe its a long distance call issue.

    Am really interested in renting from you and will really want to know everything about the place. I do really love pets but i don't have any at the moment. It will be a great pleasure seeing you soon.I think you should let me know a lil about you too.I am currently on a research programe,and i am desperately looking for a place to stay.I read your profile about the room and i would really want to secure the room before my arrival,and more so to know if it would be possible for me to pay for the room before my arrival,i am ready to offer you the first month rent fee + the first month security deposit fee to secure the house prior to my arrival to the states, So i will like to know the total amount of the room per month and the utility included am looking to rent for the minimum of 6-12 months, also i am ready to sign a year lease .All these information are very important so that i
    can submit my proposal to my Dad. My Dad will be responsible for all the fees prior my arrival and the payment will be by United State Bank Cashier Check (NOT OUT OF STATE CHECK). I will need the following information to facilitate out the rental payment to you .

    (1) Full name as it will appear on the payment.
    (2) Physical Address
    (3) phone number

    i'll pay for the remaining months by cash when i get to state. Please Forward the lease agreement/application form for my Review. In my opinion, appending signatories should be done properly and at best physically when i get to the state and also the back ground check. But i can assure you that i have a very good employment record..

    I would be glad to see your quick response.
    Thanks,
    Debra.

    3. The emails all follow the same pattern. First they ask you if the room is still available. Then they will send an email saying, "Let me tell you a little bit about lil ole me." Generally they mention that they are Christian. And, they will ask about parking because they are having their car shipped to the USA. Oh, and they have some sort of humanitarian job or are a nurse, etc.

  160. Dear Applicant,

    Thanks for your Email and interest toward the House cleaner position
    on Craigslist. My name is Van Rio, I am married with 2 kids Steven and
    Angela my wife name is Connie We are relocating to the US from United
    Kingdom. The purpose of our relocation to the United States is
    basically because of the Seminar on United Nations Framework
    Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), United Nations Conference on
    Trade and Development (UNCTAD), 6th meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended
    Working Group on Article 8(j) and Related Provisions (WG8J 6), and the
    North American industry association Green Roofs for Healthy Cities
    (GRHC) in partnership with the World Green Roof Infrastructure Network
    (WGRIN).The duration of our stay in the United states will be 6
    months, so i need someone who could help
    take care of the house, Help my Wife and watch my kids while am off to
    work also Someone that can help in running some errands. The basic
    reason for this post and search for an helper is because my wife is
    Physically challenged and has been on the wheel chair for about 13
    months now so it's been hard for her to take care of the kids and get
    around on her own.
    I'm willing to Pay $400 weekly plus $50 for transportation or gas fee,
    i will be needing your services for only 3 hours daily and at any
    suitable time that fits your schedule but preferably in the afternoons
    between 3pm and 7pm, Mondays through Fridays.. I believe you will be
    fit for this position in as much you will prove yourself to be a
    reliable and good person.
    We have a financier that is based in the United states and he will be
    handling the payment and some other expenses, so he will be the one
    that will be taking care of your payment as well, I will instruct him
    to pay for the firsts week before our arrival so as to secure your
    service, actually i should have paid for more weeks but i will extend
    the payment if am satisfied with your service after 2 weeks. My
    financier will be making out a check to you before our arrival, you
    will be receiving a check of $1950 out of which you will be deducting
    your pay for the firsts week and you will be using the remaining to
    buy Groceries/Food Stuffs and other things needed in the house, you
    will be getting this Food Stuffs and other home materials before our
    arrival date which is on or before 01/30/2013. As of now, I am still
    unsure of the Physical address of the apartment where i will be
    staying but will instruct The estate agent to mail the keys/Address of
    Our apartment to you as soon as the place is ready so that you can do
    all other necessary preparations before Our arrival, I have reasons to
    believe that the painter and electrician are working on getting the
    apartment fixed and ready for use.I will email you the shopping list
    as soon as i have gotten confirmation that you have received the
    payment. That being said,my financier would be needing the following
    Information to make out a
    check payment to you immediately upon your acceptance of the Job:


    Name to be on Check :
    Home address or Office Address :
    City :
    State :
    Zip code :
    Age :
    Sex :
    Phone number very important:
    Email address:

    If myself and my wife are pleased with your service within 2 weeks,
    there will be other incentives. However, we need a more mature person
    that is above 17yrs of age who is very knowledgeable to handle things
    without much supervision. I will be waiting to hear from you.

    Best Regards

    Mr and Mrs Van

  165. treeneety3@gmail.com / treeneety3@googlemail.com are both scams. Responded to their initial inquiry about a room posted for rent and within 1 second they had responded with a page long email including a request for address, full name, cell phone and home number. This is before we had even provided ANY information about the room. They indicated they wanted to forward us a check immediately so as to reserve the room. Sheesh.
