Recent scam reports:

13/02/2010

I have just been scammed by Lucie De Chevigny Boissonneaux (luciede_83@yahoo.com)
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?

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:luciede_83@yahoo.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.

Bon courage.

How are you and thanks for the respond
