Yet another warning on Craigslist:
EUR400 / 1br – SCAM!!! 1br – Fully Furnished One Bedroom Apartment For Rent (Paris)
Reply to:firstname.lastname@example.orgDate: 2009-05-23, 6:31PM CESTBe aware – the posting with the above headline is a scam!!! He claims the apartment is located on 7 rue du Gros Caillou, Paris 75007, France and the guy’s name (at least right now!) is Mark Richardson. His mobile # is from Nigeria.The guy claims to have moved to West Africa and taken the keys with him, hence you can only view the apartment from the outside. The rent is €400 PER MONTH, because he only cares about you taking care of his newly renovated apartment while he is 3 years in West Africa with his job. When you answer his questions, you get approved straight away and he then asks you to wire deposit and 1st month rent €800 via Western Union or Money Gram. Read the fraud guidelines on Craigslist …. NEVER wire money via Western Union or Money Gram to a stranger – it is ALWAYS a scam. When it looks to good to be true – it always is!
