This was a suspicious individual - details were off between their emails and what was advertised. Has anyone else gotten anything from this person?

Hi,
Thanks for your quick response to my inquiry, I'm highly interested in renting your place. I saw the details of the unit and i think it will really suit our needs. I am a consultant with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Cardiff U.K and I just got a transfer that is bringing me down to the states. I would be coming with my wife.
I would be in the states in about a months time and would want to rent your place during this period. I would really appreciate it if you could send me the full details of the place including your final offer and any pictures which might help me make a decision and i'll get back to you ASAP.

I sincerely look forward to hearing from you, you can reach me between 12pm - 6pm GMT on +447024059332.

Kind Regards,
Jay Rawal.

We do not encourage reporting free email addresses for closure (paid addresses and websites we do.)
It takes the scammer less than a minute to open a new address, so the closure has little to no impact on him.
He will keep going using the new address without skipping a beat.

More people find warnings by searching email address than any other way. If the scammer continues to attempt his scams using the same email address, his targets have a chance to find the posted warnings. If he starts scamming under a new address, there are no reports to be found, and the next target misses a warning that might otherwise have saved him/her from being scammed. In addition, if law enforcement is actually investigating a scammer, forcing him to change email addresses can also break an important link for them too.

I received this email today, so obviously a scam. The phone number given is 44 7031914059, which, as I see here, has been going around for a while now.



Thanks for your email,i am interested in renting the place for the
period that you have specified that it will be available for.Since it
is a nice location,i am going to rent it as i like it .I am an easy
going person and would be outdoors most of the time during my stay in
the apartment due to the research work will be doing while i am in the
states.My reason for coming to the states is because i will be doing a
private research work with the United States Environmental Protection
Agency(USEPA),i will be glad to show you my contract papers and all
other documents relating to my research with them during the summer
on my arrival in your place,i am even of the opinion that such issues
can best be handled physically.

For me to move ahead and pay the deposit required to keep this
place on hold for me and the rent for this apartment before i arrive,i
have a financier in the United States and i will make arrangements
with him to issue and send you the payment to cover it.For him to
issue this check,i will need you to provide me with your full name in
which the check will be issued and your complete physical contact
address to which it will be sent to by my financier,as soon as you
provide these,i will forward it to my financier with an instruction to
issue and send you the check.Please i need you to also reconfirm the
total move in costs,that is the rent and deposit to be paid.

Due to the limited time that i have before my arrival,i will
want us to wrap up everything as regards this rental as soon as
possible so that i can be sure that i will have a place to stay on my
arrival in the states. As regards the lease agreement,if there is
any,i want you to send it to me for my review,i will eventually have
it filled and signed on my arrival in your place and i will abide by
it.If you need to reach me for more information,you can always reach
me on +44 7031914059 ,please dial as presented for international
calls.

I will look forward to your e mail with the required information.


Thank you.
