I'm looking for an apartment in Washington DC. Like many people, I've been looking on Craigslist. I write 18 different e-mails to potentials a few nights ago. I received a followup that does not match up with any of the e-mails I sent. I asked a few questions and this is obviously an escrow scam. I don't want to post all of the e-mails here since I used my real name and don't want her to find out, but if anyone wants to pick this up, I'll help you get in touch with her with no way of tracing it back to me.

Any takers? This could be a fun one.

You can post the emails XXXX-ing out personal details. We generally don't bait random people on command & you should post the emails to determine if it is a scam. For all we know this could be your ex gf or the boss you just axed you. Wink BTW, stop looking for apts on craigslist, that's pretty much begging to be scammed or molested by some creepy guy who doesn't wear underpants.

Edit to add: you may also want to change your name since that is your real location. Tho it's highly unlikely a scammer or anybody will actually find you, we just prefer thorough make believe around here & if you're going to stick around, you might as well get fitted for a tin foil hat. Laughing
