Home for rent. We were almost scammed by this email address. I knew something wasn't right and I googled this mans name. Just so happens Richard M. Ramsaley had passed away last year in August from the same town we were tying to get the home from. Guess we were talking to the dead! Anyway, here's the email address. Just for future reference!

This despicable human being is using so many different email addresses it's not even funny! My Mom and I almost got scammed here in PA! The listing was for 1224 Eaton Avenue. There was a For Sale sign out front as well. There are at least 3 listings on CL for the same exact property. One of them was listed for $697/month; and the other two were posted not even a month later for $600/month in each listing. The first listing made it sound like the house was actually for sale. The other two said for rent, and changed the words up a bit.

Name used: "Brian Young"
Emails used:
(I sent the email to this one first) [email protected] gmail
(The reply by this despicable human was FROM) [email protected] gmail
Another addy in one of the listings here near my town: [email protected] gmail

And literally the same damn outline as he sent to everyone else!

Hi, Thanks for your email. The house is still available. Let me start by introducing myself.My name is BRIAN YOUNG..I own the house located at (Somewhere in the Lehigh Valley), PA. first and foremost,I am hearing impaired,not deaf though just Hard of hearing. I would have loved to be able to get to contact you on phone but due to my condition, emails are the fastest means for us to communicate now.

In other news, I called the realtor because the house being listed for sale as well as for rent was a giant red flag to me. She said she's gotten at least 5 other calls for that same location, and everyone just reported the listing. There's more up, though. Report all listings you can positively identify as scams, folks!

Other red flags were present too but I don't want to list them in detail in case this piece of work gets smart and googles his own email addresses.

These idiots are persistent! NEVER SEND MONEY SIGHT-UNSEEN! I am so glad I listened to my gut instinct telling me something wasn't quite right.
