    My reply:
    Hello Karina,

    I may have a room available, however, I need to know the exact dates
    that you are going to be staying in the US. Also, are you interested
    in a room with a shared bath or a private bath?

    2nd email:

    amount, but no amount is too small to help..Well i hope when we meet in person you will know more about me..Meanwhile my step dad will need the followings to make payment to you ASAP..

    I just posted a house for rent in New Hampshire, and received the same email from Karina and her so called father Grant Howelt. Not sure how they end up getting your money, but look forward to seeing how this plays out!

    I rented a room in a house in California and a Karina Chowelt responded to the ad with this response:
