I put and ad on Craigslist for someone to take over my lease and I got a response from this person
Asking if such room/unit was still available so being that I needed someone to take over I replied saying that it was and she sent me the following message
Hello
Thanks for your prompt response, Am so happy for your quick
response..I understand your explanation. A little about me....my name
is Shannon Mary, I speaks English and Spanish fluently, I am 24yrs old
female, I am fun loving, personal, friendly,clean, caring,and
respectful of others.a non-smoker, don\'t do drugs, i drink
occasionally,and drama free,from Zurich, Switzerland...I presently
live and work in Geneva as Medical doctor with UNAIDS,
(www.unaids.org)
I will be coming to State for medical research due to nature of our
work. This was why i made inquiry as per the availability of your
space.Please let me know the Utilities that are available in the
rent.(ALL application will be signed when am back in state.) For the
payment that is not a problem at all...Because my boss will be highly
responsible for all my expenses, all i have to do is to confirm the
amount of the room which i have done including the utilities(if there
is any) and then get it sent to him. I will like to move in this month
or May 1st

However i will be in need of the information in which the payment
will be issued to..,So all i require of you is for you to send me
your..

FULL NAME
FULL ADDRESS(Apt#,City,State and Zip code)
PHONE NUMBER
EMAIL ADDRESS

So that I can forward it to my boss because my boss will be paying for
the rent, my flight and some other things so all you have to do is
that as soon as you receive the check he will send.
You will deduct your rent fee and the utilities from it and then get
the rest back to my flight manager so that my ticket can be booked.
Waiting to hearing from you. I will want all this information for
quick payment asap pls.

Stay Blessed

I tried googling her but didn\'t find much so when she insisted that I sent her my info requested I told her that the payment should be done to the apartments not to me and I gave her the address I don\'t know if I should be worried that they have this information... But thankfully someone else emailed me about this being a fraud/scam and that\'s when it occur to me to google the email address and that\'s how I found this site and though I should also share since the name this scammer is using keeps changing
