I register in here to give another scammer (I almost fall into it, thanks God I'm not). I looking for a room in http://www.easyroommate.com.sg
, suddenly i found her room at river valley with price 570 (include utilities)/month. I directly email her and ask about the info. Her name is Tan Jing Wen. seems new right?
Here is her first email.
My dear lovely potential flatmate, thanks for your prompt response regarding my posted ad and how was your night sleep and everything over there with you, let me take a little time to tell you something about myself, the room & its amenities, price and conditions to rent.
Why i am renting:
I live in a 4 bedrooms flat like i told you but the 2 rooms vacant which i am offering for rent is because my previous flatmates are through with there activities and work here and has gone back to there respective states and i have only one tenant presently who uses one of the rooms but left to her Country last week after using 2 weeks into the flat because of her mother health condition and has promised to return next month ending and she really need someone to share the place with someone soonest due to the loneliness she has been going through in the flat,that's why we brought the price so low regarding to all the amenities into the rooms.So, i need people who are fun to be with, people whom we could share times and moments together,not just minding your business or going into your room after the day....but you can always have your private time and affair if you so wish and desire.
I am a young lady who was born here .My name is Tan jing . I'm currently doing my masters in risk finance after work and this makes me return home late but can't stop having fun when its necessary. I am an accountant and thus work for s brooking firm here and also a consultant,so this makes me travel often which is the mere reason why i need and search good people as flatmates so i will be rest assured that my flat is in safe hands in my absence.You'll have free and unlimited access to all part of the apartment, the Kitchen, the living room except my room
) Your visitor are always welcome.
I got my first degree at London School of Economics, i worked in Paris as a senior accountant in a brooking firm before i went to the Barcelona to take a 3 months course in public marketing and to learn the Spanish cultures and languages.Did my internship with JT Morgan in New York in 2009.lol am living presently in London .what else can i say..i think when we have a chat..you will hear more..
I have a room for rent. The price is 570$ and monthly utilities charges (Inclusive of council tax and internet charges) and a security deposit of 1000$
Rent per month...........570$
NB: The security deposit is refundable upon verification of the room which you rented to be in good order during your last day of move out from my apartment.
Immediately i confirm your interest and knowing some things about you,I shall send to you the current pictures of your room and my flat in general with the kitchen and other pictures aswell before we proceed with the necessary details to prepare the tenement contract necessary for your move in.
here is my reply
Hi Tan Jing..

I get mad because this seems fake to me. But I'm still calm, and reply her patiently.. I try to get away for sending money, I say I dont have a bank account, how can i send the money. why dont we meet up first in the public area, and you guide me to your place. After see your place, i pay you, you give the key, and its done.
She keep try telling me to send the money online. I always ask her, when she will come back to Singapore.
almost forgot, she also say she in London now. Her family is also at london. this is the last email from her.
She said she doesnt want to talk with me again, because I yelled and get angry at her at email, but after that i say sorry. what a pity i think whenever I say sorry to her. But now i think she deserved my yelled and angry. LOL
Thanks for your mail, well i really understand your mail , and also you are afraid making payment without seeing someone , well guess i don;t really want to talk to you anymore , but i can see how interested you are in my apartment , well i can tell you to make half payment through western union money transfer to London , and we have the keys and other document that enable you as my potential flatmate, but before we go into this , we need to draft out a contract lease that enable you as my flatmate, so please provide me with your details.
I ever try to view the location by myself, and i go to river valley. I found the flat. But the flat is not belong to her, its belong to someone and I already ask the real owner. DAMN. Thanks God, I make a conclusion by myself. She is a scammers. And this morning I read this forum (thanks to my girlfriend for search), i can guarantee 100%, she is a scammers. Be ware guys, alot of scammers right now.
Never trust people who want to rent a room and tell you have to pay first. Its not a logic, we must see the room first before we rent. Thats all i need to say.
The funniest thing is, I send my own picture to jacqueline and tan jing. damn. jacqueline also send her pic to me. This is her pic.
seems like London is the most powerful residence for her.
