I posted an add on craigslist a few days ago and I got an email from a person, after a few replies regarding the rent(which was plainly spelled out in the add) I get this email reply.
I felt kinda sketchy the second i saw the poor grammar and the very easily copied and repeatable format of how this is set up. another dead giveaway is that it's not her, but her boss who is sending me a check. She's also not interested whatsoever in checking the place out first.

But could I get them to sign a contract? lol. I think though, my landlord may be screwed. I'm just going to not reply and see what happens.


If this i real though and I've found a girl from Sweden who wants to live with me.... holy heck that's awesome.

Quote::
thanks for the response,am okay with the price and explanation i will like to
make the payment asap.These are my information below and i will like to have
your information cause my boss will be responsible for the payment
these are my information

Name:-Jane Adriana
Sex :- female
Age;- 27
Citizenship:- Switzerland.
Place of Birth:- Geneva, Switzerland.
Profession:-Medical Doctor
Religion:- Catholic
Marital Status:-Single
Cleanliness:- Very clean
Hobbies:-Movies,Reading,Soccer,Traveling.
Nature:-Great sense of humor,easy going and very out going.
Drinking/Drugs/Smoking:-Social Drinker,don't do drugs nor smoke.


For the payment that is not a problem at all. My boss will be responsible for
all my payment all I have to do is to confirm the amount of the room including
the utilities and then get it sent to him including the information of the
person which the payment will be
issued to. So all I require of you is for you to send me your:
FULL NAME:
FULL ADDRESS:
ZIP CODE:
CITY:
STATE:
PHONE:
EMAIL:
So that I can forward it to my boss because my boss will be paying for
the rent,
my flight and some other things so all you have to do is that as soon as you
receive the check he will send. You will deduct your rent fee and the utilities
from it and then get the rest back to my flight manager so that my ticket can
be booked. Waiting to hearing from you. I will want all this information for
quick payment asap pls.
Thanks.

I'm really glad you posted that. It's definitely a scammer. I manage a vacation rental property and I've received two responses almost identical to the one you posted. I bit on the first one and he kept saying check is in the mail.....

What I don't understand is, what's in it for them? What can you do with someone's address, phone number, zip code, etc.? Why not just look in the white pages?

A Swiss doctor who needs her boss to make the first payment? It is like scammers don't even think about the things they put together. I found some funny stuff in my bulk/spam mail folder a couple of weeks ago, but I can't find the one that I wanted to post here. It must have auto-deleted.

Yep scam-er all right,sad to say friend of mine fell for 1 of these,took check to bank,deposited it and started to spend,when bank called said it was a bad check and he would have to repay,too bad he already sent 500$ of it to them.He went to a lawyer and was told he was responsible for the check.So beware.

you could play it out and see where it goes, remembering to never divulge information that can be used for identity theft.

I have seen situations like this where it was legit, like if she is coming here for specific research at a lab her boss would pay rent because it is part of her job not because she can't pay it. Problem is for every legit one like this there is 111 scammers out there and it screws over the legit ones.

I had a neighbor when I lived in washington who had the biggest pain in the ass of a time finding a place over here before they moved because of everyone being wary of scammers.

Can try to have them send a scanned image of their photo ID but I have had a scammer take the company I worked for for thousands in sports equipment before and they sent us a legit ID, CC and bank info.....it just wasn't theirs =P
