    My wife had a scammer running round in the Philippines by agreeing to his requests and then sending bogus Western Union numbers. The idiot went three times to collect the money. Very enjoyable afternoon at the computer.

    unbelievable
    Yep, on craigslist. At least the grammar seems to be improving. Same letter:

    Good to read from you on your interest on my apartment, which i am leasing out for rent

    The apartment is still very much available for rent. Just to give you a little low down about the apartment. My Late father resided in the apartment, whom i inherited the apartment from as being his only child. I am a British citizen by birth. I am presently residing in Spain. Due to my new job offer at the Hospital Universitario La Paz here in Madrid. And also i am about to get married to my fiance over here in less than three months from now.

    The flat is up for a total of 7500HKD per month, including management fee and government rate. which i also think is fair enough considering the location. I just need someone with an open heart, love and clean to occupy the apartment and put all my worries off concerning the maintenance of the apartment for now.

    The flat comprises of two bedroom. Excellent condition inside. Good sized lounge, with a sofa, DVD player, stereo, and washing machine. Can sleep a max of 4, and ideal for family and friends. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils.These are some of the measurement of the apartment.The living area is 14'3" X 19'10" and the kitchen area is 10'2" X 6'9". Bedroom 1 is 12'6" X 13'8" inc ensuite, bedroom 2 is 6'10" X 15'7". And there is a good sized bathroom

    Just to let you know, the keys are right here with me. But there wouldn't be any problem with that. As it can be posted to you, after all necessary agreement has be reached and signed into lease as advised by my lawyer over here in the state. Also i will like you to know that the rent charges is not really the issue , but your absolute maintenance of the apartment, because it is good to keep the property in good condition, just for the memories of my father. Who committed so much putting those facilities in place, so i wouldn't want an violation of my property if finally rented by you.

    The Apartment is situated at Apt 801, J Residence, 60 Johnston Road, 8th floor, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. And please note, only the main utility bills (Gas, Water, Electricity) are included on the rent. I would be settling the bills at my end.. So you would be starting the lease with a clean slate, as there are no outstanding bills.

    The minimum lease term is 2 months, and a maximum of 2 years with a possibility of extension.


    Kind Regards,
    Rosanna.

    Besides Haidi Kwan and Rosanna Woods, I've been contacted by two others, both of whose e-mails contained gorgeous photos of the apartment.

    ROSANNA WOODS AT IT AGAIN!

    Been in an e-mail conversation with the charming Ms. Woods. Even went as far as to send me a copy of her passport, her finance's passport, her EU drivers licence and the tenancy agreement.

    I wonder if the management of J Residence are aware that there is a scam involving their building. Gorgeous apartments! But at HK$ 9000, way too good to be true.

    Oh, "her" latest e-mail address is [email protected].

    Don't be fooled!

    Whether those documents are genuine or forged surely you have enough there to go to the police?

    Yeah, I think I will. Especially as there are pictures. Hopefully at least the people whose faces appear in the documents can be informed...unless they're dumb enough to put their own faces in! They look Spanish, but that means nothing. Wish I could get them back, makes me so angry.

    Do you think I should go to J Residence and inform them? I'll take the e-mails in.

    I think you should just go to the police - they will talk to J residence I'm sure.

    SILVIA MORALES

    I was faked by Silvia Morales also and then I tried to look for her email address in google and the result made me said " what the hell??????? " this pretty girl didn't operate only in NL but in HOng KOng !!!!!!! I was faked by her also when I advert in Justlanded.com due to I have to move to Delft, NL from Deventer, NL. The email was more less same with the email from Silvia i previous thread.

    I have thought also about that, go to the police and reported her since I had her interational passport she sent to me and also her facebook. Wtf. Is that possible to report her to police? because not long time after her email, I also got email from a Canadian named Mark Steacy, with the email more less same with Silivia and also offer the fake house. Thx God, I still have a friend in Delft that easy for me to check the truth of the house so I haven't sent the money to WU yet.

    Just to keep you updated. I called the police and they asked me to e-mail all the documents to them, which I did. I got a reply saying that they had received everything and asking whether I had lost any money. I replied saying I hadn't and that is that last I have heard from the police. Still, I am glad that they are at least aware, even if I perhaps wasn't the first person to go to them regarding this particular scam.
