    Look, it was the first time I want to rent an apartment in Internet and I was so stupid to send (not a lot of money, luckily) a deposit via western union for an apartment in Copenhagen. I’ve to say that the guy who said to be the owner wrote in good English, and also seemed a good person (he also called me 3 times to explane things about the apartment). After I had paid, I didn’t have any more news from that guy and he didn’t answer to mu mails; his mail adress is sopetie11@gmail.com.

    • Mariajo  On April 20, 2010 at 2:46 am

      I have been also scamed by this people. They send this kind of e-mail:

      “Kindly accept my apology for my late response to your email. I had a lil problem with my internet connection and just got it fixed now which enabled me to access the internet now. I think i should briefly tell you about who i really am and a little about the room in question.

      To start with, it is necessary to know something about me which is more important in any flat share ( knowing something about someone you want to share a flat with). My name is Annika in my early 30′s. I have been working and studying since my early 20′s. I earned my first degree Business Economics in London, after that my mother insisted that i take a 6 months course in the humanitarian field which made me traveled to Luxembourg to study Public Administration. Oh ..i almost forget, i did an internship with CIC group (France) before returning back to Netherlands to continue my education, working in contract basis and taking full possession of my mother’s property.

      I have been staying alone in this flat since my mother decided to move back to London with my siblings, taking care of my father’s property in the United Kingdom. I have so far traveled to more than 18 countries and still counting because its fun doing what you know how to do best.

      Regarding the rent, the flat is a 3 bedroom apartment with all room en-suite. I currently occupy one of the rooms and two others vacant with no intention of renting them but due to my rate of traveling and Mrs. Van Loenhout (mom) doesn’t like it when the flat is empty for weeks without anyone living there and so we decided to rent the two rooms at affordable rate but with the motive of someone being around whenever i am away and the beauty maintained.

      The flat is well furnished to the family’s taste, large living room, kitchen utensils look new, big freezer in the kitchen, a fireplace, sound system, TV connected to cable, wifi, air condition available, gas cooker and micro-wave also available in the kitchen. Each room has a big sizable bed, wardrobe and a table for reading or PC usage purpose.

      Monthly rental fee: 400euros utilities included
      Weekly rental: 150euros utilities included
      A refundable security deposit of 600euros

      Please Note:
      1. The security deposit is refundable upon verification of the room which you rented to be in good order. Both payment (first month rent plus security deposit) is to be made once to my family lawyer or mother.

      2. Both long and short term contract is available i.e. weekly, month-month rental is welcome. Normally, initial 1 to 3 months rents is preferable for long term basis thereafter you can renew the contract before the expiry of the previous one.

      Like i said in the beginning of my introduction, i will only be interested in people who are fun to be with, happy and whom we can both share experiences and learn from, whom we can work out things out together and not just being cold and frown all time, though you have your room for your privacy… I’m sure you understand where i am arriving at!

      It will be my pleasure to know some basic things about you if you would like to proceed with this rental procedure, i can afterward email you current pictures of the flat and the rooms available and how to proceed with the tenement contract which is another important stage.

      Regards
      Annika”

    “I and my wife really appreciate your interest in our place we just want you to know that we are responsible people who are quiet and respectful. we place an advertisement on our place because it is empty”….

    Now that I know there are so many scammers in this business, who is to be trusted? How can you tell he/she is ok.

      Hello Sarsarson,
      can you tell me exactly what happened between you and Marina Garvin? Did she ask you to send you money and never send you the keys??

      Thanks for your answer!
      Kathrin

      • Sarsarson  On April 13, 2010 at 3:18 pm

        Yes, she asked me to send the deposit $ via western union (to the UK). We were to pay rent upon receipt of keys in Paris.

        After I sent the deposit, suddenly the supposed plan for letting me into the apt., fell through. Then she claimed to be sending the keys. A day later she said she had cancelled the delivery because she wanted me to pay the rent. Around the same time I received a fishy e-mail in the nigerian scam style (drama about parents having died, needing to emigrate to U.S. etc.) from the guy who she originally said would be handing me the kdys in Paris. that’s what convinced me this was a scam. Then I looked into the postal company she was supposedly using to send my keys and discovered no such company exists.

        I began doing intensive internet research on how to detect scams and came to this site where her name was listed.

        I will forward all of the language of our interactions if it will help you.

        I have reported the event to Western Union and to the police here though they’re not very interested. I’d like to make more comprehensive reports to someone who will care. I’m going to search this site more carefully for the instructions re: how to report the scammers. It’s so infuriating.

        Let me know what else I can do for you.

      • Sarsarson  On April 13, 2010 at 3:21 pm

        One more thing. ‘She’ should be in parens. I think’Marina Garvin’ it is a man. Working also with someone going by Desfosses Eduoard – also now mentioned a couple of times on this list (maybe all the same person).

      • Kathrin Becker  On April 14, 2010 at 12:23 am

        Well this Edouard Desfosses send me a copy of his french identity card via E-Mail. I’m not sure, if it is his real ID. But I send Marina a mail, telling her that I will give all the information and the ID to the police if she is not sending me my money back. I don’t know if it works, but I will try. Ah by the way, I told her that I found this website and she just said that you must be her former tenant.

        I’ll let you know what happens. To which police did you go? Maybe they are more interested if they recognize that you’re not the only one?

    • Stephen  On May 17, 2010 at 3:31 pm

      Hello

      did you lose money to marina garvin then? what happened when you got to the apartment? and what did they tell you about who they were in the initial emails??

      Thanks

      • Sarah  On May 18, 2010 at 4:55 am

        Yes, I lost 385 Euros. I never went to the apt – ‘she’ never sent me the (probably non-existent) keys because I would not pay the rent in advance. ‘She’ had not initially asked for the rent. After receiving the deposit ‘she’ said she was sending the keys to me (which seemed odd given I’m in the U.S.). She sent a confirmation of shipping but then the next day said she was cancelling the shipment and wanted me to pay the rent up front. This was despite her having sent me a rental agreement stating no rent was due until arrival. ‘She’ began sending very demanding messages about the rent. In the meantime I investigated the shipping compnay she claimed to be using and found it was fake – including a fake website. At one point I had asked for a phone number to speak on the phone. They did send me one (actually two). I called once and the answer was by a man who seemed surprised and initially confused to hear me ask for ‘Marina Garvin.’ He quickly changed his attitude, however, after a moment on hold. Then he said she was out and could he get my name to tell her who called. I did not give my name. He spoke English but he had an accent that was not English or French.

        In the e-mails ‘she’ said ‘she’ was an M.D. (surgeon) temporarily working in the U.K. She claimed Desfossis Edouard was a friend also working in the U.K. but who would be returning to Paris to hand over the keys. After receiving my depoist, suddenly Desfossis could not travel to paris afterall and thus the start of the key-shipment communications. She said she knew nobody else in Paris who could help her out (another issue that tipped me off that it was a scam).

    Re: Eduoard Desfosses – I believe the passport that they scan and send to potential renters is a scam itself (fake or stolen). Don’t believe them about me being a prior renter. So far I’ve only spoken with our local chicago police. Since the fake or stolen passport is supposedly french, maybe I should talk to the French embassy here and ask them what they suggest.

  • s  On April 14, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    If you have enough data on your potential landlord, use the Paris white pages to check background. Name, address of the rental property, and phone number(s) should all cross-check correctly. Be very careful. For instance, the name and address could check out, and the mobile phone number could be different from the one they provide you with as contact. This could, but not necessarily, be a scammer using a real person’s name + address (but of course, not the real person’s ph or mobil contact). The Paris white pages, as well as Google Street View, offer street views of buildings, for further evaluation of the property against what you’ve been told. Hope all this helps.

  • Lindsay  On April 16, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    I think I’m the first person from canada, I googled the number “Dr. Wilson Cook” gave me and this website came up.
    He asks for your drivers liscense number, and mothers maden name… If someone actually falls for this i feel terrible. no landlord will EVER ask you those two questions, neither have anything to do with renting.

  • Chris  On April 21, 2010 at 4:54 am

    Please add: Marina Garvin
    This person is claiming to be a doctor living in London.
    She/he is claiming that she/he wants a Western Union of 800euro to ensure you are not a “time waster” before meeting with you. I offered to meet this person in London, and she/he still wanted the 800 Western Union first.

  • Sarsarson  On April 21, 2010 at 6:24 am

    Hi Chris & others – see previous posts re: Marina Garvin. Definately a scam (got me for 385E). It may not actually be a woman, probably a man using the name Marina Garvin.

    Plz help. Don’t know what to do. Recently Mike Prenso contacting me about room in Manhattan. Will paste the massege

    Hello ,
    How are you doing ? Nice to read from you .. The rent is available for long and short term rent … As you can read from my previous mail am not available to show you the interior in person .The rent is $500 per month including the utilities fee while the deposit is $250 which is refundable at the end of the rent .Inertnet and cable is there .. Its two bedrooms apartment but am letting out just a room . I tried to look for an agent that I could give the document & the keys before I left but could not find any as a matter of urgency. And I don’t want home misused in my absence that is why I took the keys and documents along with me. So I hope you will promise me to take very good care of the apartment always.

    Attached are the interior pictures for you to have an idea how beautiful and spacious the inside looks, I will like you to get back to me with your final decision after viewing the interior pictures and let me know if you are interested in proceeding with the rental so that I can forward the application form to you.

    I look forward to hearing from you ASAP.

    Here is an example of a common scam letter:

    Scammer name: Daniel Anthony
    Scammer email address: danielanthony47@yahoo.com.hk

    Dear Friend,

    I am Mr. Daniel Anthony the Manager, Bills And Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department in a Bank. Actually, I have a very urgent & confidential Business Proposition for you & for our veral mutual interest.On the 6th of March 2001,our Customer, an American National,late Douglas .J.Stone , an Oil Merchant / Contractor with the Federal Governmet of Nigeria, deposited, a valued amount of US$32Million in my branch.Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarded address but got no reply. After a month we sent a reminder, & finally we discovered from his contract employers NNPC, that late Douglas .J.Stone ,until his death Eight ( 9 ) years ago in a ghastly terrorist attack to American Airline flight 175 from Boston to Los Angeles,crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center (WTC) with 86 people on board. All occupants of the Aeroplane unfortunately lost their lives.

    On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his Next of kin were ruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that late Douglas .J.Stone , did not declare any Next of kin in all his official documents.This sum US$32Million is still floating in the bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one came forward to claim it. According to Nigeria Laws, at the expiration of 10 years,the money will revert to the Ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.Consequently,my proposal is that i willl like you as a foreigner to stand in as a Next of kin of late Douglas .J.Stone . This is simple. All I require is your honest and co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from a breach of the law. I will want you to send to me on your return email, the following information for the transfer in your favor

    1. Your Full Name………………………………………..

    2. Your contact address……………………………..

    3. Your Tel/Fax Numbers:………………………….

    Let’s consider that our ratio of sharing will be as stated Thus
    1. I as the riginator of the Fund will take 50% of the transferable
    2.You as the Manager of the Fund will take 50% of the transferable Fund.

    Most importantly, CONFIDENTAILITY as what I saw as the life wire to the success of the transfer of this Fund must have to be emulated between you and me. You have to use this media to promise me that you will no in anyway expose the content of this transaction to anybody be it your Friends, Colleagues and Co-Workers.I will also want you to send your reply to this email: (danielanthony47@yahoo.com.hk) as soon as you get this mail to enable us discuss on the modalities and processes for success of this transaction.. Thanks for your anticipated cooperation and understanding. I wait for your kind response.
    Regards
    Mr. Daniel Anthony

    Better day’s greetings to you. I want you to assist me and stand as my foreign beneficiary to receive my Consignment box over there in your country, this consignment box am writing you about contains $8.5million U.S .Dollars. Deposited by my late father under GHANA HIGH COMMISSION before he died, the person who was suppose to receive this consignment box (MR. JOHN ASCOT) was demanding for 50% which I do not agree on for any reason, that was why I have to stop the delivery to him immediately, and search for another Beneficiary who can help me on this.
    I will give you 20% for your assistance, if you are willing to help me,

    kindly contact me for more details on (aliceeya@yahoo.com).

    Thanks and God Bless,
    Alice Eya.

The signatures didn’t match but are the same as on original posters certificate; I’ve been stringing this scumbag along for about 3 wkswhile he’s tring to push me to send $800 via Western Union.

    Same thing happened to my roommates. Only in Kansas. Same exact messages, only a different name. Same address in Nigeria and everything. Thank you so much for postiing this before they actually sent their money. They are very disappointed but very grateful that we found this website exposing the truth. I thought it was sounding a little fishy, because I have heard of this very same thing happening before, so I thought it’d be good to search the address, therefore this website popped up. Thank you again. GREATLY appreciated!! We need to take this sucker down!

    Markie- thanks for the info.It’s aparent that this scam is very wide spread and must be paying off for chris.jensen62@yahoo.com.
    and his pals.

    What was the email address or phone # he used for contact info or any other specific quotes he used. I think it’s helpful if you’d and anyone else who runs into this BS would post the info to put these scum in the spotlight.

    The more info on the web about these lowlife the better chance of someone else discovering the scam before sending their money to Nigeria.

    I stumbled on this website when I googled “certificate of ownership” which is the “document” he sent when I requested proof he owned it. I found lots more when I googled “portion of petroleum land” a phrase he used in his first email to me

    Here’s the latest updated corresponence with Chris Jensen- his scam alias (chris.jensen62@yahoo.com.) -Nigerian name wherr he wants the money sent to- Chris Abayomi- Address: # 445 kings DRIVE, Lagos-Nigeria 23401

    Mr Jensen dont be angry me. Yes we want house.
    number 1785 Alamoana is very big tall building. Do you own hole building?

    (The address is is a prominent downtown Honolulu highrise but he has been calling it a house until fthis email.)

    His repsonse

    No,
    i dont own the hole building,i own hole building,i own the apartment on unil 75.pls i will like to know if you are still interested in renting the place or not bcos you are you are taking much time.i am not forcing you to rent from me okay?

    I just received FOUR identical expressions of interests from one Thomas J Blum (sounds familiar? it should) for the FOUR postings I had authored in the Paris room share section to denounce scam ads.

    The text (see below) of these emails is identical (including the typos and the phone number) to the one “Joel Blum” (aka ) had sent earlier. The fact they all came together shows he probably runs a program which sends this email to ALL postings in this section regardless of their content. It is quite funny to get “expressions of interests” from a scammer to postings denouncing scams…

    Here is the text of these emails (his return email is j.blum51@yahoo.com):

    “Hi, I saw your apartment advert and am interested in renting it. I will like to know the modalities for renting it like the duration, total cost, and any other condition. I’m a senior consultant at Honey well international, Aberdeen united kingdom. I will be in France in a couple of weeks time(not confirmed my dates yet) and during my stay i will be working with Honeywell International, Paris. I will appreciate it if i hear from you in time as i will want to conclude the rental process asap. you can reach me on (44) 7762645784

    On Craigslist the following must be a scam:
    EUR70 / 1br – Parisian Luxe Dream! Almost like a 2 bedroom apartment! (7th arrondissement) because
    1. it is too cheap for the area,
    2. he asks for full payment upfront including 300 euros security to be sent by Western Union
    3. and when I checked his name against the address in the White Pages, there is no match and
    4. also no match for the phone number when I googled it.
