Xxxxx common room
This is what I advertised on craigslist and gumtree Singapore.
She responded to rent my room. Ask for pics if my room which I sent!!
She asked to pay me ASAP by PayPal and link me to a fake website. I told her I don\'t have PayPal. She must pay into my local bank which she emailed instantly that she can do it and ask for my account number, swift code etc. I asked when she\'s arriving, tenure of lease, university admission letter and passport extension as her passport shows 2 mths to expiry. Sense smething amiss as she didn\'t view the room and wanted to pay deposit & rental
Her email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now she\'s got my pics I\'m afraid she\'ll use it to scam others!!
This is what she emailed-
I am satisfied with the cost and am willing to pay for it via paypal
to send me your paypal information for me to make the payment or go to
www.paypal.com to create a free PayPal account if you do not have
PayPal account already.
Send me the total amount to pay now. (rent + deposit)
