ITS A SCAM, THIS IS THE LAST MESSAGE SHE SENT ME. SIMILAR TO EVERYTHING OTHERS RECEIVED. WHAT A IDIOT. NOONE SHOULD ACCEPT OR CASH A CHECK NOT FROM YOUR JOB OR SOMEONE YOU PERSONALLY KNOW. IF THEY SEND YOU A CHECK, WHETHER IT CLEARS AT FIRST OR NOT, ITS NOT GOOD!!!!
Hello again, Hope you are doing great?People do meet somehow, and i feel we will get along very well as It feels like i have known you for long. So far with emails exchanged, i am willing to move ahead with this as i feel most comfortable with you. I know its hard to rent without meeting, and to make you comfortable, i can put up in a hotel there for few days for you to see if you'll be comfortable with me and run a check on me, i am sure you will be okay with me. Like i said, I just want a rental secured before i start with this move. I also think it's best to secure the place with either a deposit or first month rent with deposit, with that i'd feel comfortable knowing that i have a place secured and i wouldn't have to worry about loosing the rental, Not that i dont trust you, but im leaving everything here. So i've to have a place secured before leaving. And being here now, the most reliable way of making payment is through certified check from my account, as it will be best/safest for both of us and there will be paper trail. So if it is okay by you and you are looking to rent to me, kindly provide me with your full name as it will appear on the payment and mailing address or P. O box. And i will need an email/text receipt as soon as you get the money. And within the first week of moving in, meeting you and after running checks on me, i'd be willing to making few months advance rent payment so we both don't have to worry and i can concentrate on getting settled in. So please let me know the amt you'd like me to pay now. And you can also text me @ 6059878231 till i get my new phone next week. And i will be calling you as soon as the phone arrives. Thanks again.

Received an official priority mail envelop with a letter and a check for $2350.00. The letter had the BBB logo and logos from McDonald's and MoneyGram. The letter had very distinct directions on what was needed to be done and what the evaluation should include with an email address to send the report. I deposited the check and was waiting for it to clear the bank prior to removing any funds to do the assignment. the bank did some investigation on the check and realized it was fraudulent. They closed all of my accounts without notice.Show more
I inquired about a job on Craigslist to repost ads for another person (Julie dykes). Well I reposted 3 ads of hers and they all got flagged immediately. She said it was due to having a wrong cell phone number on the account blah blah blah. Well so she said she would send me a check of $1,200 and she did! So as she asked me to I went and deposited the check and then sent her the $800 out of the $1,200 she said she would reimburse me once she bought the decals that were supposed to go on my car (advertising the same thing that was on Craigslist) and since then I have not heard a word from her. Numbers are disconnected and I can't reach anybody. Well so ultimately somehow she found out my bank account info and wiped it clean.Show more
