Craigslist Scams

A reader emailed me that a person tried to scam him. The reader had offered a room for rent. Someone emailed him, stating to come from the UK.

I don't know the exact offer, but scammers on Craigs List work like this:

  1. You want to rent the room for $500/month
  2. They offer to pay $1200 (first + last month, plus $200 overpayment)
  3. You will get the $1200 per Fedex or UPS, as a cashier's check or money order
  4. Then they ask you to send the $200 to a friend whom they owe the money. You are supposed to send the money to that friend with Western Union or Moneygram
  5. You use your own $200 for this
  6. Your $1200 check bounces (it was FAKE!)


You just lost $200.
And your bank is angry at you for depositing a fake check.
The smallest problem would be a $30 fine for depositing a "bounced" check. Worst scenario: you get arrested for this.

There is a slim chance that the person is real, but if he offered to send money upfront, I bet it's a scammer.

Scams from Allison Crowe and Debra Haynes answering my roommate ad.

Debra Haynes d.haynes006@gmail.com


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 18th of August(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.


And from Allison Crowe <malloy@lockerbiegroup.com>



Hello,

It's nice hearing from you swiftly and I would like to secure the apartment prior to my arrival to the United States.My name is Allison and below is a bit more information about me.

I obtained my Bachelor degree a year ago In my home town.I am single and never been married .I'm assuring you that you'll enjoy living with me because I'm an open minded and lively person.I will be in the States the first week of the coming month for the next one year as I'm coming for my master degree program.I was born in Manitoba (Canada), and attended the University Of Manitoba.I speak fluent English with a little Scottish accent and I'm currently in Inagua,Bahamas visiting a sick relative that has been living here for over 10 years.

I'm really interested in renting from you and I do really love pets but I don't have any at the moment. I also would have loved to see the room in person but I understand I'm miles away so with pictures I'll be good.I could have called and discuss with you about the room but this is a remote area and calls hardly go through from here and I don't want to waste much time .It would be nice to know more about you too and if you have garage or parking space as I will have my own car and more over I will send your email to my Dad to email you later since he is the one responsible for the payment for now and it will be drawn from a US (local) bank Cashiers Check.Nevertheless,I will like you to send me your full name and the mailing address as well as your phone number in order to have my Dad issue out the payment for the place as soon as possible.I think with that you can hold the place for me till I come and I will need your full name and mailing information in the form below to have my Dad issue out the rental payment to you .

***ANOTHER SCAM PEOPLE BEWARE!!! FROM: rachealmorrisson@hotmail.co.uk

Thanks for the cordial response ,I am quite comfortable with the available rental and living environment.I have plans moving in by 21st of October (2012) but won't mind if the rent start counting sooner..

About me...My name is Racheal Morrisson (F),I am 25yrs old,I am fun loving, personal, friendly,clean, caring,and respectful to others. a non-smoker,i don't do drugs, i drink occasionally,and drama free. I graduated last year in London, I am single and have no children... i do bible study, and sometimes we do karaoke night with my roommate! i go to church every Sunday .I am coming for my Masters degree. i am from Spain,specifically Malaga but live in London and my Parent are from there too but my Dad has passed away 4year (may his soul rest in peace)...I went to Kingston University in London. I speak both English and Spanish fluently ,am presently on research work and its part of my prerequisite for my masters in Microbiology.



I am currently on a research program for my Master ,and i am desperately looking for a place to stay.I read your profile about the room and i would really love to secure the room from you before my arrival,and more so to know if it would be possible for me to pay for the room before my arrival, 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 but i dont mind Month to Month rent as well .All these information are very important so that i can submit my proposal to my Uncle,since my uncle is making the total payment for the first & last month rent plus security deposit and shipping of my car and few of my furnitures he will be mailing out payment to you via Money Order in one of his business trip abroad to hold the room down for me before my arrival.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 reason,kindly contact below:
