Recent scam reports:
I have just been scammed by Lucie De Chevigny Boissonneaux (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I posted an advert on Craig’s List looking for a room to rent in Paris, and got an email from this person, with a flat that sounded ideal. She asked for one months rent and a deposit, but I thought that was legit since we made an official signed contract. So I paid up, via WUMT. Then she asked for another months rent so I got suspicious and so googled her name, and found this site. So I have been scammed. 700 Euros down the drain. This is a complete nightmare. Is there anything I can do about this?
do not answer to this [one] EITHER!!!! ITS ALL A hoax!!!! she swears she has a really pretty apartment but don’t believe anything she says. its ALL FAKE… SHE LOOKS THROUGH CRAIGSLIST TO FIND HER VICTIMS. I ADMIT, I FELL FOR IT TOO;(… AND SHE STOLE SOME MONEY FROM ME!!!
DO NOT SEND ANYONE ANY TYPE OF WESTERN UNION TRANSFER, EVEN IF ITS UNDER YOUR NAME, CAUSE THEY WILL USE THE # TO STEAL THE MONEY!!!! TRUST ME IT JUST HAPPENED TO ME…..
don’t send any type of deposit via any money transfer system, AT ALL!!!! meet the person once you arrive at your destination and deal with them then….

First of all, a big thank you to those who set this site up and have contributed to it since – it’s been a huge help.
I’ve had a bit of contact with the charming Lucie De Chevigny Boissonneaux, using this address:email@example.com
I had plenty of emails from Nigerian scammers when I was flat hunting in Paris two years ago, so I knew what to expect and bailed out early with Lucie. I’ve pasted her last mail to me below. You’ll see the telltale signs about a relative abroad – though note there wasn’t an immediate demand for money transfers and keys posted etc.
