All right,the apartment we still have the apartment very much available for rent.Here are some important information about the apartment. The apartment cost $1200 per month plus $600 for security deposit payment which is refundable while packing without any lost or damage of my properties.The apartment is located at 12200 Classic Dr, so it's located in a very nice and safe area in Coral Springs...

I am so sorry i will not be available in Coral Springs for now as i am presently in Las Vegas working but all you need to do is to go straight to the address i sent you and view the apartment but i want you to have it in mind that you will not have full access into the apartment as it is locked and i am here with the keys so that when you are ready i can post you the keys. That's why i sent you those pictures so that you can see how the apartment looks like.Let me know if you would like me to proceed in renting my apartment so that i can email you further procedures.Attached are some pics of how my apartment looks like.
Kindly let me know if you will be interested in renting my apartment so that we can proceed further.

Mrs Lillie

Thanks very much for the mail. That is okay with me. how much will be for ten lessons?i will pay $250 as advance. Am from the United Kingdom. I hope i will be able to trust you with my money, since this requires honesty and transparency. I have an associate of mine owing me the sum of $2000, so i will instruct him to write out the Cashier Check to you,so when you receive it you will have to deduct $250 part payment of the cost for ten lessons(let me know the amount to balance) and send the remaining funds to person who will be taking care of my son during his staying in the United States. The remaining funds sent to him,will be for his feeding and other commissions. So if this is understandable i will want you to get back to me with the following in formations of where the Cashier Check will be sent to.

Welcome to Scamwarners jcksmon,

Do not cash or deposit the check. When the package arrives refuse delivery. Tell the USPS, UPS or Fedex it has a fake check in it for a scam employment job. Print out your emails and give it to them. You can also give the package and check to your banks fraud department.

Do not tell the scammer anything. Just ignore all contact from him.

What email address and phone number did the scammer use?

Dear xxxxxxxx,

This message is originated from PayPal,we received an email from one of our client John Brown who bought a Craigslist's goods from you that you have not received the confirmation email of his payment.

We want to let you know that the money is now in our data base,ready to be credited into your account but we await the shipment tracking number for verification so you are to proceed with the shipment through Post Office as the buyer requested it to be shipped and email us the shipment tracking number for verification so that we can finally have your account funded.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience too,but we want to let you know we are doing this for the protection of both the buyer and the seller.

Notice below that the scammer does not want to communicate within Craigslist mail system. Scammers will often try to get the victim off of Craigslist, Autotrader, Ebay or any other mail system. He can not afford to lose his craigslist or other accounts closed for scamming.

Please folks. Keep all your communication with in the system. That is why they have it. Protect your private email address.
