basically this chick is trying to rent a place from me., im not renting a place im listed in the places wanted section. she is offering to send me a $3,500 cashiers check from her last modeling job and that i should cash it and send her the change.


obvious scam. so now she wants my name and adress, im not sure what this is for, the cashiers check or to steal my identiy....... either way im tyring to fuck with these people and either cost them lots of money or get them busted.

I wouldn't exploit them or get them in legal trouble...thats exactly what they are trying to do to you... :shrug: Sometimes its ok to just politely decline while informing them of their shady nature, eh I guess I am old fashioned

"Six words: drop out, turn on, then come back and tune it in -and then drop out again, and turn on, and tune it back in-it's a rhythm- most of us think God made this universe in nature-subject object-predicate sentences-turn on, tune in, drop out- period, end of paragraph. Turn the page- it's all a rhythm- it's all a beat. You turn on, you find it inside, and then you have to come back (since you can't stay high all the time) and you have to build a better model. But don't get caught - don't get hooked - don't get attracted by the thing you're building, cause... you gotta drop out again. It's a cycle. Turn on, tune in, drop out. Keep it going, keep it going- the nervous system works that way. gotta keep it flowing- keep it flowing.

These kind of scams are all that exist on Craigs List, it's notorious for them.

Anytime I post anything for sale on there, thats the only kind of offers I get. Some jackass in some foreign country saying they will send me a cashiers check way over the amount you are selling whatever for. It's funny I just send them a nice rude email right back.

She says she's modelling for issey mistake. I believe she means Issey miyake......

She's a total dumbass, and a liar, and a scammer.

She's probably in some third world country, far from any jurisdiction zippoz can access anyway. I doubt Nigeria would extradite him/her.

I believe her when she says she is from nigeria. I believe that is where most scams of this sort originate.

I'm still trying to grasp the complexity of the scam...

Spam the scammers back. No doubt they sell logistics like this and addresses to third party companies. Spam them right back. :smile:

I wouldn't even bother dealing with people like this, and you don;t have a room to rent in the first place.

Just stop corresponding with them, or if anything, just tell them to piss off!

there are alot of scams from people from 3rd world countries.

my favorite one is the old :

My name is such and such.
I need your help getting money from my fathers bank account in the USA.
Both my parents died in a terrible accident...here in Africa.
My father has so many (can't remember exact #) million dollars in this account.
If you help me get my money I will pay you 1 million (US) dollars.
All I ask is that you send me $100,000.00 (or whatever amount) so that I can pay some bills and buy a plane ticket to the USA...etc.

:rolleyes:

Am I the only one here who can't comprehend how this is a scam? I'm sure it is....but I can't see how it is. They send you something. You are not sending them anything. How can you be ripped off?

The only way I can see if you could be ripped off is if they manage to steal your identity or something.

P.S. You know what would be really funny? Try to pull an obvious scam on this person. Like, "Well....I want to rent this place to you, but the property is in lien court because of back taxes. My dad died and he was rich. I will be inheriting a lot of money. While his estate is waiting to be settled, I can't afford to pay the taxes. Can you send some extra money so I can do this, and once my father's estate is settled and I get my money, I will pay you back plus interest."

It is a scam because she wants to send him a fake cashier's check which the bank will cash, but when it bounces he will be responsible for the funds while he has already wired her the money. If people were to wait to see if the check cleared, then wire the money if it did it would be fine...but the checks never clear because its a scam, and a lot of people get taken in.
