  Information
Name:
   THI KIM HOANG TRAN
Email Address:
   brdgtjef@gmail.com
Tran (or Kim), contacted us via SMS (from mobile number 0428 465 117) responding to our ad for a room to rent. She then emailed requesting our paypal details so she could pay the deposit on the room.
Sounded suspicious as she was supposed to be in the coast guard in Canada. Sent us a scan of her passport, medicare card and outdated driving license from Melbourne. Didn\'t respond to questions but kept pushing for the paypal info.

The other email address she used was abcdtran78@gmail.com.

So glad I did a Google search on the email address (which was nothing like her name) and found two other reports on Scamdex of this hoax.

Thank you Scamdex and the others who reported this scam!
