Let me know the total amount for the first month rent, i will be paying upfront so that you can be rest assured that am really interested in renting the room from you… My mode of payment is US Check, so please feed me back with the following details so that i can ensure you are ready to rent the room to me.
Hey Charles, I got the same one today… good thing I looked it up when I felt that things were suspicious…. Here is he email she sent me:. Thanks for getting back to me… My name is Kaylee Lester F ,I am 24yrs old,I am fun loving, personal, friendly,clean and respectful of others. Thank You so much for this post! Thanks for getting back to me with the information I requested. I cannot express how grateful I am for this article and all of the people that have posted!! I was almost a victim my self!
Has any one else have them tell you that they are going to have there car delivered to you beforehand?!!?! Just got this one: I got many responses to my roomate ad, and the one I was gonna go with was this girl from the UK and she had asked for my name and address for her to send the amount to reserve the room I will forward this email to my dad for he will be the one paying for my rent… I was gonna fall for it but all of a sudden I got another email from a girl 3 years older than the other saying basically the exact same thing but different story..
I definitely will be meeting any potential roomates in person. My only wish is that we would have found it 10 days ago. Wounded Ego and Mike, thank you for the last two posts. She is holding on to the second check to give to the authorities today. She spent hours at the local police station last night and reported it to MoneyGram. These guys are thorough. I was going to say good, but they do not deserve such a word to describe them. Our daughter is going to school full time, trying to keep her grades up for the scholarship money which she has just been scammed out of every dime working three jobs, and doing countless volunteer work to help others.
I hope that others find your site before, rather than after they are scammed. We are heart broken, shocked and sick, yes embarrassed too wondering what to do next about needed money and stopping these crooks so no one else will be hurt. Take care, I received it yesteray and today.
I got suspicious when I got two emails that were way too similar. I just got scammed. I wish I would have seen this a day or two ago. Boy was I wrong. There goes everything I have. The reason I was looking for a roommate was to save money.
Not get ripped off. The government bails out messed up morgages but what about bailing out an innocent victim trying to make ends meet? I was typing fast and relying on autocorrect. Lol my comment reads like one of the scammers. Thank you for this website! I already had my suspicions, but this just made me realize it waa a total scam. Beware of anyone going by Anna Noyes with the email: Same as many other posters on this site, she said she was going to have her car shipped and I needed to pay for it, so her dad was sending me a bank check and I needed to send money bank through a moneygram.
His email is niner gmail. Jasmine Williams is the persons name on this one. If anyone is needing a room in Oklahoma I have a place. I was almost scammed also. My number is feel free to call. I will speak with you about the place. I have a room to rent in Austin. I am 58 have an awesome 30 yr old female roommate moving out to live with her boyfriend. Thank you for posting. Call me at What caught my eye was all most funny. See if you can find it. My father is from USA while my mother is from Germany , am 24yrs old, sex female.
Did you see it? I thought Stuttgart was in Germany, not Arkansas. When I asked which school she going to the E-mails stopped. This person is still around I got the same email as you. I am renting a room in Irvine, California. I waited to receive the check and realized it was fake and told her the bank told me the check was false and acted innocent and asked what was going on and the replies stopped.
It happened to me in and I was getting wise to the whole thing and when the money orders arrived, I took them to my bank and warned them that I thought they were bogus! They confirmed that quickly. I then reported the incident to my local police department and they said it happens all the time. Today my significant other was almost the victim of a Microsoft scam.
Whenever someone starts talking about money orders, something is fishy. A whole day was wasted but hopefully a disaster with the computer averted. They kept on calling back times while the officer was here — another sign that it was not legit! I also googled Microsoft scams and it was there.
The general public needs to be smart about checking for scams!!! I am so glad Mike has posted this and all who left their responses.
After a few email exchanges I send her my name, address and phone, and her last email follows. The subject line was: Thank you again Mike. Thank you for your response back concerning this unit. My work shipped me off to a remote area and i had absolutely no phone or internet services. Again,i am so sorry! I work out of town so I leave early and return home in the late evening. I am very active on the weekends with working out and social events. I will call you tomorrow after work,and we can discuss it further as you like.
My Dad insists to call and arrange with you to send payment this week. You can send me the lease application to enable me review it ahead of time.
In my opinion,appending signature should be done properly and at best physically. With this arrangement,my Dad will mail your payment deposit to you. You can prepare the lease in my name Victoria Marlin. Due to the limited time that i have before my arrival,i am making arrangements with a furniture company to supply the home with furniture,so i will need you to provide me with the measurements of the room,i will send it to the furniture company so that they can supply the unit with furniture that will fit in well.
As regards my Car,I am planning on having it deliver to the house before my arrival so that i can settle in comfortably,I am making arrangement with the Car handler to deliver my 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 my Car for me when it is deliver to you? I will instruct the Car handler to contact you to schedule a delivery date and time that will be convenient for you to receive it on my behalf next week.
As you will be handling the delivery of the Car for me,I will tell my Dad to include the costs of my Car delivery with the rent and deposit to be sent to you so that you can help me to make the payment when it is deliver.
I will really appreciate if you can do this for me as this is to afford mutual relationship between you and the Car handler when he delivers the Car next week. I promise to compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival at your place. I hope we have an understanding? I promise you have a great time while i stay with you. I know about how much it takes to ship and import a car and the check she sent wouldnt be nearly enough in the first place, and the amount matches up pretty close to many of the amounts on this site that has been said.
As for the check, I dont know much bout checks and fraud but I do know technology. The signature on the check was a big stand out, it looks like the signature was a picture someone had taken of a real signature and then used an inkjet printer to print the picture onto the check. She was supposedly from Spain and moving to the US to finish school, so the check should have been coming from there.
It also only took a day to get here, not possible with an overseas check, and everyone knows a direct transfer would be far easier and better to issue a payment from an overseas account to someone here in the US.
Which that doesnt match up with either the Bronx mailing address or the Spain story. I called the bank up and they were wary of letting me talk to a manager about the check and also about giving out much account into on their clients, but they confirmed the check was fake and it sounded like they had gotten a few of these such checks very recently. Scammers have a lot of victims and what I think is going on that money is being passed around from one scam to another and another from other people and you were suppose to been next.
Or something like that, I seen a documentary on that type of scams where they would run all different ones and draw in victims have them send the money to another place then the other victim has to send it someplace else then so on until the scammer actually gets it and that will be a lot of money by the time they receive it.
They used the name Katherine Robert and sent me a photo of a girl as well. They sent a check and I refused to send money until it cleared. I doubt it will. They texted my phone number and it showed their number from New Mexico Once you have the fund wire to the agent you are to kindly get back to me with the transfer details below…. Please let me know at once if you understand all i said above.
Waiting to hear from you as soon as you receive my e-mail. Thanks so much for your email.. We were about to decide to choose the scammer! Then, would we not only be out whatever they may have taken us for, but, the rent for as long as it took the bad stuff to happen. It started out sounding legit. Then, before giving us any more than her email address, she wants pictures of the room and more specific information about us. There were two things that happened that were red flags.
The first was that she wanted us to take delivery of her car from the dealership. And then, of course, she would compensate us for our trouble…right! Thank you so much for this posting!!! It really saved us!
My partner and I stumbled over here by a different web address and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.
Look forward to looking at your web page repeatedly. Beware of this number: Hope no more people will be scammed. Do you think these may be scams or legit? Should I call the number or will they be able to get my personal info if I do that? Thank you for making this website.
I am currently going through this I think! Everything is some variance of the story above except this girl never asked for any money back…. Thanks for the information! I was wondering what the actual scam was. I just received this email, which is very similar to the one you received:. Thanks for the swift response. I would love to secure the room for myself before my arrival to the States.
I like my roommate to be very caring and friendly. I would like you to tell me more about you and also if you have a garage or parking space since I will have my own car. Please let me know the total payment of the place so I can forward your email and information to my Dad since he is the one to be paying the bills.
Thanks for the heads up! I received a very similar email to the one above today and will not be responding with my info for them to send the check. The one they tired to pull on my roommate and I was the same thing except they made up some story about shipping their car overseas and having it delivered to our place, I would assume to not raise questions on how big the check way that they were sending out.
Let me know the total amount for the first month rent, i will be paying upfront so that you can be rest assured that am really interested in renting the room from Show message history.
These scammers have gotten creative with even how they find their scapegoats. I had listed on my University off-campus listserve that I needed a student to sublet my room. I had only posted my listing on the campus website. The foreign student claimed to be from Turkey. She listed her entire life story in her email and stated her father handeled all her financial transactions though she claimed to be a Grad student of So her father began emailing me for my information and etc.
I only need security deposit for the sublet. But was sent 2, in express mail. Her father then proceeded to say that her travel agent had made a mistake and mixed her travel money with the first month rent I never had asked for. He even asked if I could transfer 1, of the money to a travel agent in the U.
Keep the remainder of the money for rent and for my troubles. Now all the alarms were going off. Who sends a large amount of money to a random person then proceeds to trust them to split it. I had deposited the check into the account before the red alarms went off but thankfully my bank saw it was fraudulent and returned the deposit and called for confirmation.
I got out of the situation without loosing money but this father daughter duo keeps emailing me with different names asking for my rental space. Thanks for this old article, quick google found it for me. Coryn, I got the same form email with a different name:. I suspected a scammer and thankfully saw all the above comments.
Thank you to those that posted and warned us. That is the hallmark sign that it is a scammer, right off the bat.
My name is Susan Mendez F ,I am 24yrs old,I am fun loving, personal, friendly,clean and respectful of others. I have been advertising my spare room mon craigslist on and off for 6 months. I get this request everytime saying its a research student from Guam. I am so thankful of this website. I thought something was funny so I researched this scam. Thanks for saving me the troubles and a lot of money. I had no idea that this was a scam but I certainly paid attention when they wanted me to pay for the delivery of their vehicle with the check that they sent.
I checked with my bank and they tried to contact bank of America in Miami Lakes Florida to verify that it was a good check. B of A said that they do not verify checks over the phone.
That was my first clue. My ever alert daughter and associate went to the I-Net and found this scam. Just put basement up for rent…. My full Name is Marie Browlers.. Waiting for your e-mail with the information requested so that i can forward it to my father to issue out the check for the deposit and month rent with that you can hold on the place for me till i come soon…Thanks. The individual used a lot of the same MO as Rachel had described.
She sent me some provocative pics of her, the same as what has been described in other posts, blonde and young. I had a gut feeling that it was a scam that would lead up to a money thing. The last email she had mentioned that I would be taking delivery of a vehicle to my property. So I jumped on line today and did some research and found that I am right.
My son fell into a similar scam where they were going to send him money to purchase office supplies. Well the check was apprehended by the FBI before it even reach him, thank God.
But what they had told him is that they have you cash this phony cashiers check give them money and the victim is now responsible for the money. I reported the room rent scam to the FBI today in hopes that no one falls victim to it. After reading through this comments I noticed that this individual uses the same story just kinda tweaks it a little each time. I hope that no one gets taken by this person. Thank God I trusted my gut feeling and investigated it. Here are three of the emails that was sent to me:.
My dad have send the payment out to the address you provide and it will get to you next week. Regards my car, i am planning on having it delivered to the house before my arrival so that i can settle in comfortably you can understand that transiting cross Atlantic is not easy so i am 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.
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 has been included with theCheck coming to you. I will really appreciate if you can do this for me and promiseto compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival in your place..
Hope to read back from you soon.. I will get back to you with my flight details And i will also attached some pics of mine for you and i will love to see your pics too,Â Hope to read back from you soon. Very good find, this site! Gut instincts are typically true…so follow them! I went as far as replying until the scammer mentioned sending money for shipment of her items why would anyone administer the shipping process for a stranger, I will never know. I never got to the point where money fraudulent or otherwise was exchanged…thank you gut-feeling for prompting me to search for Craigslist roommate scams!
She did get several pictures of the house and 2 of myself. I fully expect to see these pictures being used to scam others after reading through several of these posts. All i will want you to do for me is to please remove the advert from the sites as i will not want to lose it to another person.
I will also want to inform you that i will be shipping over little of my bedroom furnitures and my car that my organization gave me, when i was promoted as Humanitarian officer and my boss as promised to include the money for the shipment with the money for the rent fees,so as soon as the shippers came to deliver my things,you will help me to give them the remaining money at the point of there delivery after you may have deducted the money for the rent fees.
Hope you can really understand this? Wow, almost got scammed but thanks to their stupidity I realized what they were doing. My emails were very similar to Jackie Posted in early April for summer rent of 3 months. I want a humane body with signed lease and money,preferably cash. All with the same MO, will send check prior to arrival. Need to take care of delivery of car and also pick up at airport. What BS, responded that I am a landlord and will not deal with car or airport pick up.
They still wanted to send check for far more than what was due, scam! Got his little scam mules mix up. Father ended up calling me with very heavy accent probably Nigerian, assureing me everything was good.
The phone was probably a throw away cell. Watch out for these emails: Thank God they were stupid. I feel awful about those who were so taken. Wow, I am advertising for a roommate on Craigslist, was contacted by Jessica Scott, jessyscott gmail. I guess she can get my bank info if I deposit the check? What if I go to a bank and just cash the check and never send them the money? How could they get my money that way? Wed, 13 May Same just happened to me with the jessyscott gmail with her dad gonna pay.
I said needed to get more details and phone numbers and said to accept her car etc To be delivered. The number was as well. Really seemed fishy and no one in their right mind would send money like that etc…. Let me know the total amount for the first month rent, I will be paying upfront so that you can be rest assured that am really interested in renting the room from you…. The part that started to throw up a red flag was the amount of information being requested and the numerous grammatical and spelling errors.
I sent the information requested using my school address, but the next email that was sent really set an alarm off for me which was this:. That was extremely fishy so I Googled this email: The scenario I have is similar to what you have stated. Thank you for posting this. The only problem I have is they know my information, such as phone, number, address even my work info. Is there away I can block, or report this person? I am scared knowing that they know where I live. How can I report this with the authorities, or perform background check before getting scam?
I had already decided to require an application before trying to meet the person in a local coffee shop first, which was wisdom indeed. I had also asked for their personal email not wanting to make replies through CL anymore than necessary, many of which ignored my request. If we can somehow catch their IP address would that help? By reading all comments, most of them asked for your information full name, physical address and phone and told that they would like to ship the car prior their arrival at the 1st email.
I got a scam email today. Intially, she asked if the room is still available. After knowing the room is still available, she introduce herself, attached a picture of a nice looking young girl and even gave out a phone number of the person who will be responsible for the bill. My Name is Susan,Female 26yrs old Here is a lil about me below.. I am fun loving,personal,friendly,clean and respectful of others.
I graduated last year in Germany. I am single and have no children… I do bible study, and sometime we do karaoke night with my roommate! Also i will like to see some pictures of the place,also tell me lil about yourself.. Because i would like to know if there a parking space. I will be moving in anytime from now. I will send your email to my dad for him to email you later because he is the one that will be paying the bills. I replied her back with the info she requested and the photo of the house.
Please I will need the following information to facilitate out the rental payment to you to be able to secured the room for my prior my arrival. Full Name as it will appear on the payment, 2. Physical Mailing Address, 3. I would be glad to see your quick response. After reading her email, my instinct is telling me that there is something wrong so replied her back as below Hi Susan,. We have couple candidates to interview before we make final decision. Please read my earlier email regarding all the questions for you and your dad because they will help us to understand your situation better.
I went to do some researches after sending out the above email and I found this post. Well, I will watch out carefully more on the room rent out inquries … Thank you everybody for sharing all scam stories. Our daughter was excited to be getting a foreign exchange student mastering in South African Art, which should have been our first clue.
Who goes to a small town university to do that? Beware of Lauren Warren, whose name should have been another clue.
I wish I would have seen this message a couple of days ago. I received a check from a person saying they wanted to rent my room and sent me almost a They wanted me to send to a person in road island they said it was a car dealer ship agent so they can have their car delivered. I cashed the check at a check cashing place. They called the bank and it said it was lagit. Oh and I forgot to add that today a foreign man called from a local number asking for me.
He said I was supposed to send that money to road island. I felt uncomfortable so I hung up. The picture that was sent was of a white blonde girl. They guy sounded like he was from Africa. I would like you to tell me more about you and also if you have a garage or parking space since I will need a garage for my car and if a garage is not available I think a street parking is an option.
My style is eclectic. I am relatively neat and would expect the same courtesy in a roommate. I get along with people very well. I like to do social activities such as hiking, or to go out for a casual drink. I have experience with renting, and I obviously pay on time. Let me know at once if i can trust you to have the funds sent to the delivery representatives once you get the check, Kindly write me back as soon as you receive this e-mail. I will like you to have a little patience for the check to arrive to you and also secure the room prior my arrival.
I will update you soon about the status of the payment and also provide the tracking from the courier service. I will also be signing all the necessary Papers on my arrival.
Thought it was legit until she stated asking for money orders That was an immediate red flag, The I found this site. This is happening to me now. I looked this up because it all seemed too fishy. She says her dad already sent the money to hold the place. Has never spoken to me on the phone or my wife! Calls herself Carolet Madison. Delaware number then Tennessee.
I have had a similar email conversation as well from a Marjorie Dwyer. It sounded fishy from the beginning but I thought it was legit because she talked about watching movies and hanging out… But weird since we never met. Here is the original story she told me: I really do appreciate it your response to my text,.

I never thought of this type of a scam. Now I am in the middle of it. I advertised on craigslist for a roommate. I received a reply from a nice girl from China named Alice. She claims to be studying micro-biology and will be attending the Maritime school here in MI for her masters degree. Well hang on… I did a bit of research myself skeptical as I am and it became much more elaborate.
Alice actually has a facebook page, attended the college she claims to have attended—City University of Hong Kong— and is actually a walking, talking ,living human being! I am supposed to take delivery today form a courier for the amount requested in my ad. I have every intention of turning it over to my banker on Monday morning.
Mike and people who commented thanks so much for this website. Because of you and the comments, I avoided getting scammed. He told me to check Craigslist scams etc. Thank you craigslist and my son.

Please try and understand and thanks for your understating. Let me know the total amount for the first month rent, because i will be paying upfront so that you will be rest assured am really interested in renting the room from you.
I got a very similar email from aliceleeworld gmail. I advised her it was not normal practice, and I always meet the potential tenant to ensure they are the right match fr the other housemates, but accepted her circumstances.
I requested the following details from her to asses the legitimacy of what she was stating — — last months pay slip — letter from her employer stating her employment status — working VISA to work in Australia — a copy of her passport.
She emailed me back requesting I send her a rental application and Bank account details as a fair exchange for her personal details. I emailed her back stating, until I reference your identification and working status, I can not proceed any further. The emails have ceased. I was suspicious, but was interested in her rental request, but after I tried to find her on facebook and google and Linkn, and found nothing, I was very sure it was a scam.
Thank you for all previous post. Its been very helpful. Please let me know at once if i can trust you to have the rest fund to the Car Dealer Agent once you get the check, i will be expecting your e-mail as soon as you receive my e-mail.
