Am I Being Scammed?

Recommended Posts

I need room mates.

 

I live in Boston.

 

I threw up an ad on Craigslist and got the strangest response ever.

 

"I got your message concerning the room , and i will really apreciate it if i can get the room from you.Let me know the bills per month and also to know the method of payment you would prefer ....am 23 years old female presently in the uk ..Try to get me th

e pictures of the room so i can know what it looks like, and kindly tell me little about your self... i will await for your response later today .how is family and friends hope all is well try to get back to me asap.hope to hear from you soon.

 

A wire transfer into a wells fargo bank,bank of America or a certified check will be preferable."

 

I sent her pics and whatnot and got this response the next day.

 

"hello ------,

thanks alot,the rent sounds great and i can wait to make payment so that i can secure the palce before coming over,this is a little about my self.Ok well these is little about me ,I am flirtatious and a thrill-seeker. I am as funny and alluring as ever. I also have a confidence that is very attractive I am the type of person who enjoys having alot of fun and that is so easy going you will love it! My personality is I would say kind of generous and kind. I am 5'7" I am happy, athlectic, adventurous, spontaneous, elegant, and smart. I love to play basketball and i rank it as the neatest game on earth.I have a great career because of the assets in my inherintance,anyway that is confidential. I love the movies, concerts, and live music and just reading the paper is so nice,please get back to me with ur preferred mode of payment.A wire transfer into a wells fargo bank account,bank of America account will be preferable.this transfer will be made by my boss.please tell me what u feel and get back to me

NB I CANT WAIT TO COME OVER CUZ IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY DREAM TO FUTHER MY EDUCATION IN THE STATE"

 

 

If I give her an account number for Bank of America, could they get into it? She's not asking to recieve money she's asking to send it. Would I be in danger at all if I used Wells Fargo? This seems too good to be true, and my expercience has been that when it seems too good to be true it is.

 

Why would this girl just leave the UK send me cash and move to someplace she's never been? How can I have her send cash without being fucked?

 

Just thought I'd see what you guys think.

I dont know how shes planning on scamming you, but it sure seems like thats whats happening. Anyone who starts theyre description of themselves as a "Flirtations thrill seeker," is a little sketchy to me. I think you should ask your bank about it, I dont think that she can get into it, but Im not bank knowledgable. Sounds interesting though, if your bank says alls good, maybe you should do it, and then post pictures of her on here.

sounds a little fishy.

 

why don't you get someone that you can actually meet in person... it can't be that hard in boston.

and sure, someone could get into your account possibly with an account number, and a fake id. walk into the bank, all the tellers are looking for is a matching picture and an account number.

easier than buying liquor with a fake.

There is a very easy answer.

 

Go to a bank, open an account solely for the rental unit. You should be doing this anyway so you can keep it to maintain rent and pay misc. fees etc from it. That way you can take a tax deduction for the amount of anything. Also if you need anything for the apt., like a new TV or fridge or whatever, use this account to pay for it and get the write off as a biz expense.

 

Give her this account number. Tell the bank to put a note on the file that there should be only "in person" transfers out of the account, but that deposits and wires of money are fine.

 

Tell the bird the number of that account.

 

Bang!
