Scam Artist Response:
Subject: INTERESTED IN RENTING/SHARING ROOM…
I saw your post in craigslist.com. I'm interested in the place you have for rent, presently I reside in London,UK and would be relocating to USA soon. I know I'll need to secure the rental prior to my arrival to show seriousness on my part.
Please get back to me via email if it's still available and you consider me for the rental. In my next email I'd tell you more about myself and plans. Here is my apartment's land line number +44 702-404-7156, if am not around my roommate Jim would be.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
This Jim guy seems to really get around. I’d imagine that if I responded that dear sweet Kate would next send me a templated bio page noting that she is 26 to 27 years old; she may even attach a portrait. If this comes to that and we get serious she may have to consult her “uncle” regarding money matters. The scammer is relying upon the fact that one is sucker every day and with a world population of 6 billion plus there ought to be a few trusting souls left in the world.
