A New Scam - RUN AWAY!!

Well, now there is a new scam going on (I believe).  I am still investigating.  This has nothing to do with a dating site.  My daughter and I are toying with the idea of possibly moving into a bigger place.  We drove around and also checked craigslist. 
I am just going to copy the email and let you read it, then I’ll offer my thoughts and what I am doing about this.

I decided to rent out the property due to my transfer to (Tennessee), with the World Forum Foundation's to promote an on-going global exchange of ideas on the delivery of quality services for young children in diverse settings, so we are renting it out since we need someone to take good care of the property on our absent. Don't be surprise if you find the home with another site and deference price, I have plan to rent it through Real estate before, but they are not serious simply because they have a lot of house to lease out And they added some money to the rent while there commission is not fair.
Have this in mind you must know the kind of person that I'm nevertheless I am giving you this rules because of what corresponded between me and my last tenant. the keys and documents are with us here in (Tennessee). So I will need to ship them to you before you can occupy the house But you can drive by the house any time to take a look at the area and surrounding, You can also peek through the windows if you don't mind.For now we are looking for 3 or 4 years lease or rather lets us know how long you wish to stay.

I guess since I’ve been doing the dating sites, my keen sense of something is not right is very high right. 
 
 
 
 
        
·         First off, the language is terrible (1st red flag)
·         Secondly, why would I send a check for a place that I haven’t been inside or met with the owner.
·         As always, I look the house up on the City of St. Louis owner listings.  Guess what, Williams Flowers doesn’t own the building.
 
So I emailed the Alderwoman for this area and she responded back right away.  Here is what she wrote:
 
Let me see what I can find out about this from the Recorder of Deed's office. I do know these scams happen so you are smart to tread lightly.
I am anxious to see what she finds out.  Now this property wasn’t listed on Craigslist.  I posted in the area where you can what you are looking for so he contacted me.  Tonight when I got on Craigslist, the house was listed.  But it only had 2 pictures.  It was the house I saw pictures of.  (And drove by on my lunch today). 
 
So I thought okay, move on.  I emailed him back and said I live in the county and wanted to stay there.  I didn’t zing him like I would a guy from the dating sites.
 
Now – her comes another one:
When I got home from work and looked at craigslist I saw a house that sounded good but didn’t have pictures.  Which makes me suspicious.  So emailed and asked for pictures.  And now, here is this email:
 Good Evening,
      How are you and your family? I really hope i am not getting back to you very late about the house you want to rent, I had to leave Saint Louis, MO  in a hurry due to my recent promotion and it involves me working out of the Saint Louis, MO My family and i just moved from  Saint Louis, MO to IN, We intend selling the house if we find a Tenant that would be ready for a lease to own after a year in the house, if not, then we will continue with normal rentals.

Please visit http://www.usaid.gov/, you can also support our mission.All we care about is someone to take very good care of it with passion of it being it's own. A colleague of mine introduced me to this internet site of advertisement when the formal reality company i gave the house to manage for me since am not in  Saint Louis, MO but due to the high price they put on the house which make people not to rent the house from them so i have to withdraw the house from them and start doing the rental by my self. I want to be convinced you are capable enough to taking care of our property for us? We don't want it to be used anyhow,i want you to get back to me on how you will be taking care of the place or perhaps the experience you have in your previous places of living or lived.I want you to note that all utilities are included in the rent.I look forward to hearing from you so that i can forward you a rental application form if you are interested in renting our place. I guess by now you should eager to view the house because it is a lovely home. So far, we have seen a couple of interested families but we shall rent to the best tenant according to our choice. . The rent is $500 while the security deposit is also $500. The house is ready for move in.. YES UTILITIES INCLUDED AND LEASE IS 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR WITH OPTION OF LEASE TO OWN..The house is for rent now but would be really interested in a lease to own in the future..Here is the address to the house 4446 Itaska St, Saint Louis, MO 63116. You can go by and take a look at the house to know if you are Okay with before i send the rental application to you since i will not be there to tour the house with kindly take your time to look at the environment and the neighborhood of the house to know if you are Okay with the house.

Well right away I checked the ownership of the house and guess what?  She doesn’t own it.  So I emailed that alderwoman.  I don’t expect to hear from her till next week.  I haven’t responded back to the person who emailed me.
I’m starting to feel like a scammer magnet.  Not sure that’s the right way to phrase it.  But I am seriously thinking about going into the detective business.  Dating is hard enough now this?  LOL!!  You have to laugh.  I know God has a plan for everyone.  Maybe mine is to catch scammers.
Tell the next the one comes along and I have another story to tell, have a great day!!!

Today's 2nd crazy story

So at the same time the Army guy is messaging me, I get the one below.  But not from a guy from a "supposedly" little girl in Africa.  Now this one is a first.


Today's crazy Day

So I'm at work this morning and I see a Google Hangout message.  Now I'm not chatting with anyone and the ones I were, I've blocked.  So I opened it up.  Below is the conversation we had.  I guess I was pretty harsh on this guy.  But I don't recall having any conversation with him through POF though he said we did.  I usually keep good notes on this.  But the pictures looked familiar.  Perhaps someone else used his pictures like in my previous post.   Anyway,  Below is the conversation.

This weekend's newest liar

You know, you have to laugh.  Just when I think nothing is going to happen, BANG!  I get a "meet me" from POF admirer.  LOL!!  I will post the conversation below.  I hope it's readable.

As you read it, you will see errors in his stories.  Especially when I call him on it several times and continues to go on.

Now the funniest part about this is, these pictures have been used before by someone else who was in contact with me.  LOL!!!  I recognized the one picture right away.  You gotta laugh.  His pictures are below as well.

  LOL!  Enjoy!

Why do I continue to do this?


As I continue my search on the dating sites for that one special guy, and all I keep finding are these liars and guys posing as our military I guess some wonder why I continue to do this.  I wonder that sometimes myself.  But what started out as something to try and see what happens has turned in to something more for me.  I feel like I am on a special journey.  I want to get the word out to everyone (men included), not to fall for these liars and scammers online.  Every couple of weeks I try to send my blog to different places online to advertise it.  I want to get the word out.  So that no one falls for these scammers.  So I am asking you to share my blog with everyone you know.  Send it to the masses!!!  Get the word out.

This blog has become a passion for me and one I plan to continue until Mr. Right comes along. 

So what is happening?

Well a few weeks ago, I got another live one online.  This was claimed he was in the air force.  Of course he is over in Syria on a peace keeping mission. 

Okay so here is first email to me.  And I didn't change the size of the font.  This is how he sent it to me.  LOL!!

And this was the second email I received:
 
 
"Thanks for the short email and picture this evening , I will be waiting to read more from you extensively tomorrow . And if I may ask , have you ever been told you have gotten all it takes to tie a man to the sole of your feet as you are looking so gorgeous in your picture you sent to me right now . Waiting for your reply tomorrow . Answering other questions I 'd asked in my email last email to you . From Jack"
In my email back to him I told him my story of all the lairs and men posing as military.  Guess what?  I never heard back from him.  LOL!!!!
 
What a shocker!!
 
Below is the pictures he sent me.  Notice the name on the name tags are blacked out.  And it doesn't really look like the same person in the photos.
