About a month ago, we applied for a house for rent on craigslist.com. 19 Jonquil st. casper wyoming. On March 17th I received an email stating all he needed was the application filled out and the first and last month\'s rent. He stated his name was Craig Wagner and was a pediatrician who worked in Africa. The email was very detailed and very flattering. I emailed him the application (with out giving away personal info about social security number etc) and then I started to think something was wrong. He told me to send the money to nigeria and the next day the COURIER would deliver the house and keys. I asked him to call me so I knew it wasn\'t a scam. When he did call, it was not an american person it was a person with a foreign accent. When I told him I wanted to see inside the house before I rented, he told me he didnt have anyway to do this, when in his emails he stated he had family living there at the moment that could take care of anything needed. I hung up after I told him I knew it was a scam. We didn\'t give him any money, but what peaked our interest was that we HAD applied for the house online through craiglist, well emailed our interest.
