fake tutoring request in response to my ad offering tutoring services
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Megan Hall
Email Address:
   brookex4g@gmail.com
Scammer says she has two kids, though \'her\' story evolved. The first email, sent via craigslist was \"Can you be available to tutor my son for a months,if yes provide me your alternative email address so that I can contact you regarding it when i get to office now.\"

The second message from \'her\' states that she has 2 kids needing tutoring lessons. \"Is the tutor lesson still available? we are planning to relocate here and i want my children to attend your tutorial while i am away for keeping them busy...Lisa is 16yrs while cristian is 10yrs...So I want you to calculate the cost of 2 hours/day for 3 days/week which the tutorial will be held for the whole Month. Email me at brookex4g@gmail.com\". Up to this time she provides no name for herself, and notice there are now two kids.

On emailing this person at their stated email address, and providing a breakdown of the cost of the number of sessions she requested she replied as if I had not provided a cost estimate (or she didn\'t understand it) and wanted my full contact information to send a cashier\'s check, as she is doing business in Guam, and she states she has no cell service, though I can see on my email screen that the previous emails were apparently sent over a mobile phone- \"Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry.\" Her kids are to be conveyed to a tutoring lesson location of my choice by way of a hired driver, and lessons are to start asap. I replied that I only work in cash and would never contract a month of tutoring in advance before a successful initial session. I doubt I\'ll hear back from this person again.
