Craigslist Scam

For those who don't pay attention, rental prices in the san francisco bay area have dropped like a rock. Most complexes aren't lowering rates for renewals with the hope that residents will opt to stay to avoid the hassle. As a result, many renters are considering moving to take advantage of better rates. I'm one such renter.

This weekend, I spent some time on craiglist checking out the opportunities. I saw an ad for a great looking rental house way under market rate - at least 50% below. The ad had photos and an address of a real house (I could verify they matched via street view), but no phone number, so I got a little suspicious of a scam. Mostly because I was curious how the scam worked, I dropped an email to the address in question which was @yahoo. This morning I got a reply:


I did get your response concerning the AD I posted on craigslist. The house is still available but presently I'm not around.. I did bid for a portion of petroleum land sometimes ago in West Africa and fortunately I won the bidding so I have to move quickly down to Africa to have my company set up because I will still have to rebid for it in the next 10 years. I came over here with my wife, we both built the house when we got married.. As soon as we settle down here I had a thought of selling the house so I have to look for an agent, after getting one, we got a deal but later my wife advised against that. She said we may not be able to win the bidding next time, in other to keep our head when we return that we have to keep the house. I reasoned with her and accepted her advise. So I contacted the agent back and requested for my keys and documents. Later we decided to have the house rent out, we would have give the same agent this job also but the truth of the matter is that the agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant may not be able to reason along with him later. If you notice, you will discovered that the price we are offering is far below standard price, this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the absolute care for the property. I know there is no way I can be sure that you are the right person to live in the house because we won't be able to see physical before sending you the keys and the documents to occupy the space. But I just had a feeling that anyone who knows what it takes to put the kind of structure down should know that maintaining a building is mandatory, so if you belief you can take good care of the house and handle it like yours then I will be more than happy to let you rent the house.


Please if you are ready now to occupy the house kindly provide the information below for record purpose

P.S: YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VIEW THE INTERIOR PART OF THE HOUSE BECAUSE THE KEYS ARE HERE WITH ME AND THERE IS NOBODY WHO CAN SHOW YOU THE HOUSE



He also provided an international phone number - with country code (you guessed it) Nigeria, My guess is that with this information, my friend here can open a line of credit in my name. If not, I'm sure the next email will require my social security number for a credit check. It's so sad.

He doesn't want your data, he wants you to pay the first rent (+ perhaps a deposit). Then you'll notice that he isn't sending you the keys and probably that someone else is actually living there. Advance fee fraud ("419") - you pay in advance based on a promise (you get the keys, cheap rent) that he won't deliver.

John Mueller said...

Oh and I bet this works like a charm in the current economy. Since he lives in Nigeria (or Amsterdam or London or whereever) he won't really care when he steals money from someone who is down on their luck & is running out of money (these people are often the most gullible)... Bah.

Greg said...

Agreed. Getting me to pay first month's rent makes alot of sense. A little less scary than identity theft, but still pretty horrible.

I hope it doesn't work like a charm. I was pretty sure it was a scam going into it, I was just curious enough to try to figure out how it works that I dropped an email to him.

I wonder if Gmail could detect these types of emails automatically and give links to some further information on how these types of fraud work or something.

Shalini said...

Are you kidding me? That is super sketchy! Thanks for sharing. It is good to be aware of the newest scams, since they seem to be getting pretty crafty.

Rani said...

Ha! I just received the same e-mail after responding to an ad in Portland, OR. The scammer even used a yahoo address with the name of the actual property owner, and knew when the house was built. They're clever enough to check tax records online.

Miss Lisa said...

I just recieved the same E-mail from him for a property in Hollywood Florida. I googled "craigslist scam" to double check and found you guys. can't he be turmed in or something?

larry said...

After finding a house in Junction City that seemed to good to be true, I googled bidding on land in Africa, and low and behold I received this same email. WOW! What is WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!!!! WHERE HAVE ALL OF THE HONEST PEOPLE GONE!?!?!?!?

TML said...

I received this for a property in Hartford, CT.
It does sound too good to be true, which is why I searched online. But I am sure there will be others who would not be as alert and will succumb to this scam.

Brownies said...

Gosh, I'm so thankful people are posting this up. I actually just found one on craigslist, this is the exact response I got.I am really confused by how detail and weird he talks about things. And I don't believe there's such free lunch.So my friend checked it out online, saw your blog. Thanks for helping us not wasting time.

Andrea said...

I actually live in this town, and went to school with the owners of the houses sons. I let the "sketchyness" of the deal slide beacuase I thought I knew who it was. Once I drove by and saw all of the cars still in the driveway I knew it was fake. I found the mom(owner) on Facebook and she let me know it was absolutly a scam...Small world and crazy people!!!

mconrad said...

I fell for this and sent the information he requested for a home in Lee's Summit, MO. We actually spoke with him on the phone and he was going to email us the "contract" for us to sign. I'm sure it would have included instructions for sending money. When he threw in the utilities until the end of the year, we thought it sounded fishy and started some google searches. The FTC has information on this scam as well. It's good to hear that they just want the money, although I have put fraud alerts out at the crediting agencies. It makes you feel so vulnerable.

Makaya said...

It's still going around. Found an ad last night on Craiglist, this time in the New Haven area in CT. I sent out an email and received a reply similar to what is posted here...with the description of all that was included in the price and being familiar with the actual location of the place to rent, it did not seem real. Then, I started googling the sender's name and email address and found this. Thanks!

Kandi said...

I just received the exact same email after responding to an ad in Pawleys Island, SC! It was a yahoo address as well and he said he lived in West Africa!! Thank you for posting this email! It was incredibly helpful in detecting the scam.

Patrick said...

Common scam. If you do homework, the property is usually listed by a REALTOR, the scammers pull the photos off of 3rd party websites and list on craigs list for half of listed rent. I'm a REALTOR in CT and have had this happen with my listings.

Yohanis said...

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope no one falls for this!

Melissa said...

Just found one of these in Boone, NC. Thought it seemed like a pretty good deal. The rent would have only been slightly less than most places, and it had pictures of the inside and outside, real address too. Took them a few days to reply back to me, when they did, this is what i got:

Thanks for emailing me regarding the house is still available, but presently I'm on business trip to West Africa. I bid for a portion of petroleum land sometimes ago in West Africa and fortunately I won, so I have to move quickly down to Africa to have my company set up. I came over here with my wife, we both bought the house when we got married. As soon as we settle down here I had a thought of selling the house, so I have to look for an agent and getting one we strike a deal but later my wife advised me on selling the house. I reasoned with her and accepted her advice. So I contacted the agent back and requested for my keys and documents. Later we decided to have the house rent out, we would have given the same agent this job also but the truth of the matter is that the agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant may not be able to reason along with him later and moresome I do not have anyone in the area I can leave the keys behind with so that is why I posted ad myself. If you notice, you will discover that the price we are offering is far below standard price and I this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the absolute care for the property. I know there is no way I can be sure that you are the right person to live in the house because we won't be able to see physical before sending you the keys and the documents to occupy the space. The house is available for as long as you want and if you drive by the house you may see a sign there, you have nothing to worry about it belongs to my previous agent so you have absolutely nothing to worry about and you don't have to call them because they do not have access to the house anymore.

thought all that sounded reeeal fishy, so i googled that and found this site....i can't believe this person. what a shmuck!

chelynn said...

I got an email just like this the other day in Kalispell MT. Yesterday we went to the house, walked around the yard, peeked in the windows. There was still a reality sign in the yard and I got an email today asking to send a deposit. Tomorrow I was going to go question the realator and the neighbors to see if it was legit. I googled part of the email and found this site. I feel like such an idiot! I would never have sent money without further follow up but still feel stupid for even going this far! Heads up to everyone

Just received the same email for a house in Knoxville, TN:

Thank you so much for posting. I am trying to find housing in Racine, Wisconsin and just got this same exact one. It was incredibly useful to be able to google the language and have this site come up. I have flagged it for removal. Thanks!

Rita said...

It's June 30, 2010, and I just got the same response to an ad for a house in Shaker Heights Ohio, for $800 for a huge single family home.
Thanks to this site for the warning -- I already sent my info back before checking online, but luckily no money has changed hands. Only sensitive info he got is our birthdates, so I don't think that's too compromising.

VICTORY said...

I am so pissed off. Thank you for posting this!
I was so interested in this house and it seemed to good to be true and i guess it was. :(
I got this exact same email. I knew it sounded fishy the second I heard the word Africa. I googled Petroleum west africa- and found this place. I reported the post, and i replied to the man
"This is a scam. Shame on you. Karma is a terrible thing when it comes around.
People are onto you."

vpitts said...

I wish I read this sooner. I am going through this scam and I actually thought it was real and finally decided to check on into it even though now I lost out on 500.00...

I only decided to check out if this was a scam or not because the person I am talking to Nilda is always changing his story which made it really fishy. Thank You!!! at least it was only 500 I lost and not 2000.00

qtpime said...

The same thing just happened to us in Temecula CA, the same email was sent to us, they copied an ad from a realtor, lowered the price and bait and switch was in the process. they come back asking for a lot of personal information and of course asking when you can send the money - classic.

thanks for this site, was easy to google.

mcgcurtis said...

sad day I thought it was the perfect house .. only blocks from where I work .. but as soon as I saw the grammar and the person mentioned west africa I knew.

I drove by the house yesterday on my lunch break and the door was open...with people home.

Guess I'll have to keep looking for another dream home. Glad to have found this site.

Fernando said...

I just receive the same exactly email and the address is 5 shaw rd in Brookline I searched the house belongs to someone else thanks guys to open my eyes I was too close to send money to then

TheRealDen said...

This is the reason why I despise sites such as Craigslist...Although this is a old post the same exact scam was just attempted on my family over the weekend. 6-24-11 So for everyone out there keep your guard up and watch for the email address lybeckeric@yahoo.com they used the West African story down to the T.

grant said...

just had this same thing happen on a salt lake city craigslist advertisement that seemed "too good to be true." thanks for posting the text from the email, because that's exactly what was sent to me.

Here's the fake ad (still up as of 7/15/2011):
http://saltlakecity.craigslist.org/apa/2493447454.html

Here's the real ad (notice it's for *sale*, NOT for rent):

JinBoca said...

i got this same thing for July 13th, 2011 in Boca Raton. He had a good description of the house and I even went there and rang the doorbell. No one was home, but there was a dog. I read his reply email before going to the place so when I heard a dog there it hit me. He asked for my info and I ended up talking to him on the phone. He said that instead of the 800 for the deposit that I could give him half if it made me feel better. I laughed and told him there was no way that was happening. He got kind of mad and tried to tell me he has money and a family and all that bs. So i said nevermind and hung up. Just to see if it had happened before I googled petroleum land in west africa and this came up. Ive studied africa before and no where have I read about any kind of bidding there. Thank you guys for posting, you've made my day!

Badje11y said...

Just got a message from the same person (or someone using the same scam slightly worded differently hunfa2222@gmail.com )

Its sad when people have such an "I deserve" mentality that they will hurt other people just for their own selfish desires.

I had a friend who got caught by a similar one and it was rent + bond in advance...

Allieemc2 said...

I got the exact same email, In Cupertino, real house, it was for sale a year ago, which is how im assuming they got the photos, and address. and all the other info. I replied to the craislist add out of curiosity, and found out i was right about the scam reported the post, Hopefully no one falls for it.

Debbie said...

Hello,

Not sure if anyone is reading this but I just got the same email inquiring about a property in Texas. I am really mad about this! Wish something could be done.

Tina said...

I hope everyone that comment that they found these ads are marking them for deletion.

bigdaddy1 said...

Same thing Stevenson point I've locates the houses contacted relator. Who name also was the same first name as the person posting the ad and wen I did a people search the name was accurate for screws but while checking the home out I've seen it was fully furnished and appliance still on including baby monitorand house was not cleaned but more dirty

Alia S said...

omg this just happened to me :( i didnt send money but my address was in it i hope nothing doesnt happen

Marki Buckley said...

Um so I'm in NJ Atlantic. City and.just got this same email! I googled the address and called one of the numbers & low and behold I walked up to the front porch and talked go the actual owners!! I am glad I didn't do it!

Danny Adams said...

Nearly fell for this. Gave him my name, DOB, and phone number. Probably a mistake but hopefully they can't do anything with it. Where can I officially report this fraud?

I did get your response concerning the AD I posted . The house is still available but presently I'm not around.I must confess that I am very very new in this landlord business.. I did bid for a portion of petroleum land sometimes ago in Monticello,IN and fortunately I won the bidding so I have to move quickly down to Monticello,IN to have my company set up because I will still have to rebid for it in the next 4 years. I came over here with my wife, we both bought the house when we got married. As soon as we settle down here I had a thought of selling the house so I have to look for an agent, after getting one, we got a deal but later my wife advised against that. She said we may not be able to win the bidding next time, in other to keep our head when we return that we have to keep the house. I reasoned with her and accepted her advise. So I contacted the agent back and requested for my keys and documents. Later we decided to have the house rent out, we would have give the same agent this job also but the truth of the matter is that the agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant may not be able to reason along with him later.In case if you find the house for sale on another website,that is the old advert, because of this reason and more we need a responsible person (With good credit) that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money , but want it to be clean and for you to take care of it as if it were yours If you notice, you will discover that the price we are offering is far below standard price, this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the absolute care for the property. I know there is no way I can be sure that you are the right person to live in the house because we won't be able to see physical before sending you the keys and the documents to occupy the space. But I just had a feeling that anyone who knows what it takes to put the kind of structure down should know that maintaining a building is mandatory, so if you believe you can take good care of the house and handle it like yours then I will be more than happy to let you rent the house.

Leann said...

Same thing in Odessa, TX. . . here I was thinking this was an answer to a prayer and instead it's a scam. Darn it all! :) SO glad I searched "west Africa oil bid" looking for scam info. I hate being suspicious but this proves why we have to.

Toni Williams said...

Yep, Just emailed and called and got this same response except this time he's moving to Montecello, In for petroleum land? I live in Indiana currently moving to California and that's when I knew it was a crock of stuff! Stupid scammers. I wonder if the current residents are being hounded by a bunch of interested renters in Bel Air for a house rental for only 1500/month. This needs to stop and the websites these are in need to be monitored better.

Toni Williams said...

Almost but no cigar, Thanks to whoever started this blog. I appreciate the heads up. Seems they tried to tell me they are moving to Indiana but all the rest of the email is the same. And the fact that it ended with Mr. and Mrs Norma blah blah blah last name. Americans use the man's name first stupid....

Angie said...

This is still happening. My boyfriend just received the following response from a rental house listing that seemed too good to be true, and it seems was:

The utilities are included in the rent, because of this reason and more we need a responsible person that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money , but want it to be clean and for you to take it as if it were yours.

PS: YOU CAN ONLY DRIVE BY AND SEE MY PLACE FROM THE OUTSIDE FoR NOW, BUT IF
DRIVE BY THE HOME YOU MAY SEE A SIGN THERE, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT
IT BELONGS TO OUR PREVIOUS AGENT SO YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO WORRY

HOME ANYMORE!

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RENTING GET THE APPLICATION FORM FILLED OUT AND SEND IT BACK TO ME

Best Regard
