Since I know we were just talking about this.......
I will out myself, I may as well give out a
warning so no one else does it.
If you are looking for a roommate, be careful who
you talk to and how much info. you give out.
There is a group and their new game is they are
out of state or out of the country.
They will play the email game with you for a few days,
tell you their story, send you pictures of themselves,
tell you all about how they served in the Red Cross,
all about their sick uncle, how they like to do dishes,
blah blah blah, in the meantime, they get you to tell
them about you........ and even how you should
start considering them YOUR NEW SISTER!
Then they decide to take your apt. and they are going to
send a money order. They don't want your bank account,
so I am still trying to figure out how they could scam me.
Well I found out.
They take all the information you give them, and they put
up ads under your name later, put up pictures you gave them,
and they "RENT OUT YOUR APARTMENT", they tell the person
Oh but I am out of the state or country so send me a money
order or western union, if someone falls for the scam, they
send money and show up at your apartment expecting to move in.
It works and it is happening.
The other thing they are doing is going to foreclosed houses,
they have figured out ways to get a key to the lock box,
they have you meet them their, draw up fake papers, you give
them cash, money order, whatever,
they have you sign the papers, they give you the keys,
and they dissapear, and then you find out it is a foreclosed house.
The first one, the one I fell for, I found out because it happened in
my building already!
The 2nd one was on the news tonight.
Just thought I'd pass on that warning. Not that any of you are as dumb
as me, lol. One of these days I WILL LEARN, really, lol
