So I'm trying to rent out an apartment that belongs to my parents. I put it
on craigslist last night and I got an email from someone claiming to be a
student in London. Here's the email
Craigslist warns about fraudulent scams involving overseas transactions and cashiers checks.
Is this guy for real? I would think that an English college student would be well aware that we are many States, not just one. There are also a few more spelling and grammar errors that make this smell kind of fishy. What do you guys think?
I wouldn't want to deal with this guy. Between the fact that someone else (his sponsor) is in charge of payment, and the fact that his English is about as good as the authors of crappy email scams, I wouldn't want the hassle.
Yeah its a scam. Anything with cashiers cheque is a scam. He'll want to
give you more money than the rent, then ask you to pay him the
I got one too when I was trying to sell my car. I just checked my hotmail archives for it, but could not find it. Total scam!
and his spelling sucks too!!!
