Was looking for a roommate on Craigslist. Emailed a couple of people and this one responded very quick. Did a search on the name and nothing came back. Used the email they provided and found this web page. Same emails these other people got I got. Just a warning. Here is the email that this person sends out.
Hello, I am looking to rent soon and i think its fair to let you know about me, Name is Adison McComas, 27y/o single female, easygoing and fun to be around. I don't smoke, drink nor do drugs. I clean up after myself, as well as my environment, I am respectful of other people's privacy and opinions. I am pet friendly but do not own any. I'm from Rapid City, S.Dakota and the reason behind my move is simply because of change. And this is about time as i just lost my mother to cancer (I have been putting off my move just because she's been sick for long). I have been wanting to try a new place, have new experience, and most importantly achieve my goals. I was a travel Nurse by profession, but teaching yoga is what i love doing and i have broad knowledge of yoga/wellness as i had the opportunity to learn from Baron Baptiste Sch and i have been teaching people here too. I am a christian, and yoga to me is about the purity of the body and mind/improving health and I will never bring it home if you object to it. About rent, I have money saved up, so you wouldn't have to worry about me paying rent/bills on time till i get settled. I am financially reliable and it has been a plus making money from teaching yoga as a lot of people are doing yoga these days. I also plan making my own yoga videos and I also will be looking to rent a space in the area(or maybe studio/gym) when i move, as i planned giving yoga classes to people there when i move. I would like to find a place before i start looking around for position at hospitals there too. I choose to tell you all about me as i need no drama, so please email me back if you are looking to rent ASAP and let me know if i am someone you'd like to rent to. I will provide my number, pics in the next email. Thanks for your time and i await your next email with details, pics too.
And heres another
Hi again, I appreciate the response, I hope you understand that im still here?, i would have loved to see the room and meet you but it will really be hard making a trip over there and coming back here. I just want to make a solid arrangement before embarking on moving plans. And do let me know how soon i can move in as my move in date is flexible. I'm good with values and will always respect your space/privacy. I am serious about renting and can provide rent/deposit upon request. I'm including my pics to this email so as to put a face to the msgs and if you are to rent, we will make arrangement to chat on phone and you can tell me all i need to do. (Please let me know incase you do not get the pics, so i can resend directly as i got failure delivery because your email only shows @reply.craigslist.org). Hoping to read from you.
Was looking at CL for a roommate and responded on an ad.
I liked her spirit with the first email but ai was definitely hesitant right away. Did a little more emailing and by the time I received the 2nd email without answering my questions from her first response, I knew something was absolutely wrong. I awaited until she gave me some tangible info. Lo and behold, I googled her address and phone number and this came out.
I've not responded yet but I don't even know if I want to waste anymore time than what I already have. I've taken screen shots of her email and pictures but it's unfortunate the isn't a way to post with this complain to help others know.
I'm surprised she hasn't caught up to checking her own number to see what comes up.
***The emails she sent me were verbatim to the above complaints***
Beware scammer Shauna Durrance is Greeley Colorado area she post furniture on Craigslist beware there WILL BE MISSING PART AND YOU WILL BE TO BLAME!!

She posted a CL ad that she was looking for a drama free room to rent. Emails had poor grammer, and she said she wanted to open a yoga studio. Stated her address was 1920 Monte Vista Dr, Rapid City, SD 57702 and that she was house sitting while her sister was on her honeymoon. She asked for my full name and address so she could send me a check for the security deposit, or the first month's rent. Discovered similar complaints about person before I sent it.Show more
After looking for renter(s) for a house of rooms I am trying rent out, I saw this person's ad looking a room/room share on craigslist in hawaii, as I live in hawaii.
The emails sent me are the same exact ones that I have reviewed here on Angry Citizen under the name of Adalyn McLennan, whom I had been conversing with on Gmail regarding her looking for a place to relocate to. Her emails to me match exactly to the emails others have received before, and who have supposedly been "scammed" by this Adalyn person who stated she lived in Rapid City, South Dakota.
I googled her name just to check if there was a match to see if she actually had a profile that I could review and Google sent me here where I reviewed numerous complaints of the very same person or persons that did them wrong using the same tactic(s)?
I will try to report this person(s) to the authorities and discontinue my conversation immediately. I am glad that I found the information on this site before I got "scammed", however, I feel "scammed" already even though I did not receive of cash a check yet, and am very angry right now.
I am making this compliant to show that this is still happening as I speak to you today, 12/26/17. Please let's all work to stop this "scammer".
