Ok, so I got a scammer responding to a genuine ad I posted on gumtree which incidently led me to this fab website!
Doesn't go on very long as I suspected immediately as it was written so poorly but I wanted to see how it would pan out.

Hi George
Sorry I didn't reply sooner, for some reason this went to my spam folder!
Wow, the house looks lovely! My daughter is only 2 though and I would be a bit worried she might draw on the walls or something!
Would we be able to come and view the house?
Many thanks

Hi,

I apologies for not replying you so fast,But there will be no problem viewing the property,I am always available any time after 4pm during the week days and any time during the week end,so just fix a precise date and time and let me know,But before then i will have to be sure of you been willing and ready to get the property and perhaps been capable of the rent bill,so i will need a proof before then.



Regards

Harry

Dear George/Harry
Thanks for your reply. My rent etc would be paid by the government as I am entitled to housing benefit.

I am talking about the deposit and what you have to provide is very simple,I am just in need of a confirmation proof,And these is due to some previous predicament that i have gone through in the past,Trying to rent the property to some student,I have got to realize so many people are not really in need of a property at the moment,All they do is secure a place in advance,My last experience in trying to rent the property to a particular lady,Got me to predicate on these,She made me believe she was willing and ready to get the property,She even went to the extend of showing me her statement of account,Which made me took her for the viewing,But after taking her for the viewing,She saw the property and got to love it and never wanted to loose it,So she kept pleading i retain it for her because she wasn't financially composed at the moment,Which i did because i did pity are situation,But it all ended up disastrously.
So basically for me to be sure of you been willing and ready to get the property i will implore you walk into any Western Union or Money Gram outlet and send the bills to any of your friend or your partner via Western Union or Money Gram,Or your partner should send it to you,All i need is for you to get back to me with a scan copy of the receipt issued to you after making the transaction so i can confirm it,And as soon as i can confirm these i will get back to you immediately,And then your partner can go and withdraw the money back for you,But i have to confirm it first,After this we can have a rendezvous to meet right immediately and view the property,I hope you understand,Well you can call me if you need me to explain better,07024044128,Thanks.

Regards

George



It amazes me than anyone ever falls for this trick

Dearly Georgie
I am confused as when I called you this afternoon I thought I made it clear that I was calling from a phonebox as I do not have a phone at home.
Unfortunately, I can no longer make the meeting this afternoon, I do apologise.
However, I have attached a copy of the receipt and hope that we can rearrange for tomorrow you cocksucker. Eatshit and die mofo.
Kind regards


I attached something called a WU receipt number but actually it was a picture of some penis', I hope that he enjoyedit!!

Please end this bait immediately!!! This person seems to have your real life details

If you want to bait him, start over with a new and totally bogus gmail account, fake details and a new "approach" to the bait.

Have fun - but always always always bait safe....

As I said at the beginning of my post, I wasn't scam baiting - didn't even know what that was, it was a genuine advert. Never heard from him again after I sent him the penis pic!

Well well, Snap, I have had the pleasure of receiving contact to a rental ad I placed with gumtree from someone called Chris and surprisingly his emails to me are identicle, why are people so sad. [email protected] with a phone number 07024044128, last going off was my request for a copy of the rental agreement for my solicitor to read and OH! no reply to that one BUTTTTTT I have a new enquiry from [email protected] and wow if your gonna scam someone at least be original guys for goodness sake.

I will be forwarding the emails to gumtree

Didn't know this website existed and had never heard of "baiting" before but I guess it goes on.

Keep up the good work on here guys

I can't believe anyone falls for that either. These kinds of scams are the ones that make me scratch my head the most. Who would pay money for a place they have never even seen/looked through... and with WU or MG for that matter? His reasoning didn't make sense either.

Over at Scam Warners there are dozens of rental scams which work just the same.
However, due to the particularly bad English of this lad, you did not understand his trick:
He wants proof that you will be able to pay. So he suggests you send a certain amount to *a relative of yours* and mail him the scan of the transfer document.
And here is the snag: With the code and question + answer ANYBODY, ANYWHERE is allowed to pick up the cash, no matter if on the document is says "Auntie Jean in Edinburgh". You have no idea how many people have fallen for it.

Oh, and welcome to 419eater!

@nellywelly
Would you please PM the email addresses and scripts so that I can investigate. They might all look the same to you but I see them like fingerprints...
