Painfully obvious, right? (My pets names? Seriously?) She already blocked his e-mail, especially since there was a SECOND listing on Craigslist that went to the same e-mail ([email protected]). Here's a link to the address in question:
http://albany.craigslist.org/apa/851865990.html
If I had to guess, I'd say he took an old posting, changed the e-mail, and re-posted the listing. I was able to find the real owner's name so I could warn them, but not a phone number for them as it was unlisted.
I give this to the baiter-forum as a gift. Mess with this asshole to your hearts delight. I'd do it myself, but I don't have the time or sufficient know-how.
I look forward to seeing a trophy or two, and I'll assist if I can. Twisted Evil
(Oh, I posted this one on scamwarner too)

I really like his questions. After all, if you are renting a house to someone it's pretty important to know the name of the pets. Very Happy

I've run into this one too- I posted my recent letters received here:
http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=148724

But I've never gotten a phone number. Crying or Very sad What's wrong with me?

I'd love to see these guys run around. I'm looking for a place in the SF bay area, and seeing these pop up is insultingly frustrating to me. Bad enough that this market is overpriced and competitive.

I've been told that lads like forms. Apparently he thinks baiters like forms also. I have a bad feeling about this lad's future. Laughing

To save you (or your wife) contacting them with a real life email why not just post the link from craigslist here, or you can open a gmail account with fake info and then ask the scammer for further details.

I'm in twice. One character for each bogus owner. I just asked one why there is a for sale sign on the house.

I wonder why "Sh4nn0n" has much better at English than "P4stor K4y"

No, he can't really do anything with your info...he's in N1geria. Just email him back and say you "Thanks, I found something else."

I sent you a PM...this guy (or someone using the same script) is the piggy bank in my signature.

Welcome to eater, jb10! Very Happy
If you want to bait this guy, make sure you are using a safe email addy, like gmail, fastmail, or hushmail. Make up all fake details. The scammer is hoping you will send the $1000 rent and $800 security deposit via WU, and then he disappears. But all kinds of problems can occur at the payment stage, none of them are your fault! You really want that house. Smile Good luck baiting, and have fun!
