Agree to pay six months rent which normal tenant will not agree
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Irina Molina aka Kim Hoang Tran
Email Address:
   naturalme2u1@gmail.com
Irina responded in my rental add via my mobile phone with untraceable number. It only show as name. I send her the pictures and rental terms and she responded with email similar to what I see in this site.

As she cannot provide post dated checks I ask her to 6 months advance rental which she agree. This really made me suspiscious.

I follow her instruction and create an invoice in paypal. When I send the invoice, Paypal is showing the name Kim Hoang Tran. That got me more suspiscious.
I google Kim Hoang Tran crime that leads me to this page.

I was not scammed but nearly scammed. Thank you to this site.
Apparently, she will let you believe that money was already transfer via PayPal. As it will take several days before it will reach your bank account, you will advance payment to the movers. You pay without receiving anything.
