Does this look familiar... he is still on there and is using Kelvin Morgan for the name instead... really this kind of stuff really makes me angry because there are people out there that really need a place to live and with people like this around it's no wonder people don't trust anyone these days.

In Oz too

I just got it too in Australia, and he is called Bobby here.

Same email, copy and paste.

If anyone mentions the word Africa! It's a scam the whois comes up with someone in Lagos Nigeria.

For interest here was my response to his email saying I have been approved (I havent heard back from him in like 2 hours and I'm starting to miss Bobby)


Hi Bobby,

That is great news. Thank you for the quick response.

Would it be possible to send the papers and payment receipt by email as my girl-friend kicked me out the house (that's why I am looking for a new place) so I won't be able to get the package there. She is currently burning all my clothes and threw the couch out the window. She is strong and I am scared of her so don't want her to know where I will be living. If we can sort out the papers and the payments you can send the keys to my work address when you're happy with the details.

I know it's a pain and I did not mean to make my girlfriend cross but these things happen I guess and she was bound to catch me watching Oprah on TV when I already admitted that I thought Oprah was a foxy lady. I hope to make a new girl friend soon and that's why I said there will be two people, it can get lonely in the a new country but because I have lots on money I am sure the women will come to me, I am not a good looking man but my expensive car really helps. Let me know if you want pictures of it with me pretending it broke down and pushing it. I like to pretend because the guy that I bought it for said it a fortnight and I think that means forever.

I was also talking to my friends at work and we would like to start a fund to donate to your charity, let me know if we can do this the charity bank details and we can start transferring donations on a monthly basis. Also its great to show other people how much better we are because we donate to charities. Especially Thomas, he cuts the lawn here at the country club we attend. He thinks he is a nice guy but he can't afford to donate and he keeps whining about how hungry he is, but I think he just wants attention.

Same scam just recently received

Hi,
Received the identical message and wonder why I can't see the inside of the place. Then his next reply entered into the spam filter box and the whole thing stunk like a rotten fish...this guy should be found and stuck in a shoebox for causing others grief.

Here is what he sent to me, so if you see the same, please don't fall in. I am glad I can use the internet for getting info on scams like this.

Here is the email acct. he uses: kelvin Morgan [fisch60@hotmail.com]

hamilton too!!

Same guy, but Kelvin smith this time on the hamilton mountain! I suspected fraud from the beginning, but played along with caution! Funny thing is, one of my family members knows the owners of the building he was going to try and rent to me!! BUSTED! Anyone know how I can report this and to whom?

You can report it to wherever the listing is and the host should remove it. Beyond that there's nothing you can do without a lot of boring work.

Scam

This guy is still going. I just replied to 2 listings and received a response back from "Terens Parker" and "John Field" for each listing and to my surprise both emails were IDENTICAL! They sited the exact details listed below except each price corresponded to the price listed in the initial ad.

Just thought I would add his other aliases to the list for others getting their hopes up for these truly too good to be true listings.

John Field scammer

I just emailed for this 1 bedroom apartment on Merton St., and it really did sound too good to be true., and of course it was.
He wanted me to fill out an application....not! I flagged the ad on craigslist, but there is no way of catching these people. They are out there to take advantage of the naive and innocent.

Still at it in 2012!

My friend just started looking at rentals in the Bay Area in California, and she found a property going for $1500 less than anything around.. This is the reply she received for her inquiry:

From: <bestcourtney42@yahoo.com>

Subject: Re: Question about the home at 281 W Latimer Ave, Campbell, CA 95008

hanks for your interest and inquiries about my Property. Yes the Property is
still available for rent and we are looking for a responsible person/family
to occupy and maintain the Place now that we are not around. I own the
Property.I wanted to sell the Property before my Wife advise not to sale it..

I and my wife just traveled to Africa for a program called Empowering Youth

taking place in three major countries like, Spain, and South Africa

This was posted to Zillow, which is a much more reputable site than Craigslist when it comes to filtering out scams, so BEWARE!!!
