So a friend of mine is looking for a new place to rent and came across this post on Craig's List.
http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/apa/815552875.html
I emailed them.
Quote:

When you email the contact you get this message in reply.

Hello Captain Planet,

Thanks for the email. I own the house and also want you to know that it was due to my transfer to Africa (Nigeria), that makes us to leave the house and also want to give it out for rent and looking for a responsible person that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money for the rent but want it to be clean all the time and the person that will rent it to take it as if it were its own. So for now, We are here in Africa and will be staying here for the next 6 years in our new house and also with the keys of the house for rent, we try to look for an agent that we can give this documents and the keys before we left but could not find, and we as well do not want our house to be used any how in our absence that is why we took it along with us. I and my wife came over to Africa for a missionary work, so i hope you will promise us that you will take very good care of the house. So get back to me on how you could take care of our house or perhaps experience you have in renting home. Hope you are okay with the price of $700 per month.

SO IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED I WILL WANT YOU TO FILL THE RENT APPLICATION FORM BELOW. RENT APPLICATION FORM.

Wasn't really sure what to do next, till I heard a story on NPR about this site and decided to push this thing further. I replied.

Sorry I have taken so long to reply. I am much interested in renting this house. I have been much busy lately. Is there way someone would meet me at the house to show me inside? Thank you.


I'll wait a little while for a reply. If nothing comes I'll get a temporary phone number and try to give these people a call. Any suggestions?

Considering that you probably used a real email to reply(as opposed to one specifically set up for baiting with 110% fakey details) my advice is drop it and walk away. Ignore any replies-they are criminals and do have contacts around the world.

As for the post-report it to craigslist and get it deleted.

Then if you want-read the stickies (twice) learn how to bait safely etc and ask for a mentor. Pop down to surplus and grab your very own lad.

I definitely set up a new yahoo email as Captain Planet to respond to the post. Do I need to do more than that to keep safe?

yahoo doesn't strip your ip. gmail, fastmail and hushmail does.

to see how close to your doorstep your ip resolves to check this...

HOLY CRAP. Thanks man. I knew you could trace ips, but I didn't know it went that in depth. Feel like I dodged a bullet on that one.

Mine comes up 15 miles away. No biggy to me. For me, worst case scenario is they find out I'm not in Miami. Laughing

@CaptPlanet: A bullet fired from Nigeria. It probably would have missed anyway. Wink

I occasionally bait from Yahoo. My IP doesn't pinpoint me, and most lads know less about IPs than you did ten minutes ago. That said, there's no harm in being cautious.

Haha, love the name! Captain Planet, he's our hero, gonna take the mugus down to zero? Wink I like it.

I often bait the property scammers, they are such pains and I hate to see them scamming so much on free ad sites. Because of this, free ads are one of the easiest places to pick them up (good for baiters).

I'm working on one right now, eventually I'm hoping he will join me in my venture to find tenants for a crumbling castle! Very Happy

Reeeeeeeally, Dianne? Don't you think that the first email's a bit soon to be going into that sort of detail?
