Email allanjdaviss at gmail dot com

He's been approaching a real estate agent I know, looking for a million dollar house, but his emails look really phony. Could end up with a fake check scam. Writes with fairly good English but still...

Hello xxxx yyyy,

Thanks a lot for your response.

I am looking for luxurious house with a private garden swimming pool(
Not Necessary) terraces and magnificent view, 3 to 4 bedroom. Strictly
residential, for me and my family.

My budget is from $800,000,00 to $1,2000,000,00. (Between Eight
Hundred Thousand to One Million Two Hundred United Sates Dollars.)

I will need to see the prices of the houses you have and the design.
The proximity to shopping malls, schools and other amenities are
important in my decision making sir. Please note that the area in
which the houses you have for me is something I have to put into a
bigger consideration as it will also help in appreciating the value of
the house in nearer feature.

Get back to me with your full information for houses that you have so
that I can make a choice.

Thanks

Since he's on gmail, the email headers mean nothing.

Looks very suspicious. Does he say what branch of the service he is in? Even if he is a Navy Captain (O-6) his annual income tops out at just under $150k, even with allowances. Unless he has about $200k for a down payment he will be hard pressed to qualify for financing on a $800k home.

Is your friend in an area where the housing market in growing? There aren't many places nowadays where the market would be "appreciating the value of the house in the nearer feature." (So much for his good English. It looks like he got sloppy at the end.)

That phrase alone screams scam to me. Only lads quote money figures like that.

I don't know how a native speaker of English could mess that up so badly.

People don't buy houses without looking them over in person. I think this guy wants the info with pictures, so he can run rental scams. He's bolder than most, going for the higher priced homes rather than apartments.

demand a phone number - the country code will tell you where he's calling from.
if you're lucky you'll get a city code as well.

This is wrong in every possible way it can be. If he's real, he's not a good proofreader

Thanks everybody. Yes, he's a scammer. I baited him from my own email and immediately got back the exact same email from him.

His English is full of miswordings, but it didn't have the glaring stupidities that most lads use, so it seemed to me to be just a little bit above normal ladspeak.

So now what? I think I'll go for personal information first. Anybody else is welcome to step in too. Here's my starter to him:

Quote:
Captain Davis sir,

You enquiry has been passed on to me for referral. I believe our stocks of housing will be more than satisfactory to you. There are many choices in your stated price range. Many require quick action in order to be the first to buy at presently reduced prices. Some of our customers in your position have seen best to provide us with a cash depost, which we could use to tie down your choice of property immediately.

Please give us some more specifics as to what your requirements are, and tell me whether you would like to have a deposit in place here.
I was angling to see if he wanted to jump right to an overpayment scam, but not yet, apparently.
