I responded with a thorough detailed email and gave my full name address cell # and email address. I got a response back this morning at 2:46 a.m. Working hours for these scam artists. I did a simple google search of the entire email they sent me and it showed up on here! Word for word! They want me to take possession of a car! And are overpaying me for doing "her" a favor. I'm reporting this to craigslist as well! Beware!

Hello,
Thanks for getting back to me with your information , (I will be paying the first month rent). so i want you to secure the room the for me till my arrival and i will also like you to keep off the ads from Craigslist so that nobody will contact you about the room again.So can you tell me the nearest airport ?I will get back to you with the tracking number as soon as i get it and my flight details,

Furthermore, As regards my car,i am planning on having it delivered to the house before my arrival so that i can settle in comfortably,you can understand that transiting cross Atlantic is not easy so i am making arrangement with the car dealer to deliver the car before my arrival after the rent and security deposit has been paid to you by my Dad. I will ask you for a favor here,can i rely on you to take delivery of the car for me when its delivered. I will instruct the car dealer to contact you to schedule a delivery time that will be convenient for you to receive the car for me . As you will be handling the delivery of the car with the rent and deposit to be sent to you so that you can help me handle the delivery payment for the car...the delivery payment has been included with the Check coming to you.I will really appreciate if you can do this for me and promise to compensate you adequately for your time and efforts on my arrival in your place.

Thanks.
