A month or so ago I advertised a room to rent in my house to help me out with the mortgage. I advertised on spare room and got an almost imediate reply from a lady by the name of Caroline Lawson. She said that she was been sponsered by some-one over here, and we passed a lot of email to and fro. I started to get suspisious when she would not give me a date when she would be arriving, I had no address for her, just her email address. The last email I had from "her" was asking me to send her enough money to cover her airfare. Then the penny dropped. I am still in touch with her, and I have promised her the money, just to keep her "on board" until I figure out what to do, and who to contact. Any advice would be really appreciated. I feel such a fool.

Moved here.

Please don't feel foolish. I'm glad that you didn't pay any money out.

Welcome "Littlekitty" No one on here will think you silly, Thankfully you did see through her rouse, and did not send her any money.

Unfortunately, when this sort of thing happens, it restricts the opportunities for genuine people who might need somewhere to live, As you will now be on your guard

If you could perhaps post some of your e-mails and more importunately the e-mail "headers" . I feel sure there will be people here who will take up the challenge and give this person exactly what they deserve.

You might also like to repost it again on "Scamwarners' [link top of page]
So others will benefit from your exposure of this creep.

There's nobody official to report it to unfortunately. Well you could tell tell the police, but they won't be interested as there's nothing they can do.
The scammer is likely working out of a Nigerian Internet cafe, and all the details he's given you is false.
Baiting scammers who have your real life details is a bad idea, so break off contact. Make up an excuse why you can't now let the room. Your invalid
mother needs it, you're pregnant and you'll need it for a nursery, etc.
