Details of Scam Report
I registerd my interest to explore the room offered by scammer above and was responded with lengthy email stating her interest to have me as my flatmate and requesting for money to secure the room.
The email seemed to be taken off a template which has been circulated around since 2011. The email said she had the property on her own after the demise of her father and usually once they have found they potential prey which in this case, me, their ads on easyroommate will say he or she has found flatmate.

Email add: Hi, Thanks for your mail, I can reserve the room for you until the day of your move in but only if you show me how serious you need the room. I have other offer who is also interested in the room but I think we will be a perfect match (flatmate) and I would love to give the room to you. My apartment is a Two bedroom apartment located on 6A Everton Park, Singapore 082006 to be precise and I am looking for tenants for one of the rooms in the apartment. The apartment belongs to my Mother although she got it from my father after the demise of my Father last year. The apartment is fully furnished and also the rooms am renting out so you might not need to come with any other furniture but if you intend coming with any stuff, let me know alright?... The apartment has a heating system, water, parking space, security, Electricity, Gas, Phone, Internet Connectivity (Broadband), You would have free and unlimited access to the kitchen, the store room, the guest room, and all areas and part of the house except my room of-course... :) You are also entitled to your own visitors. The two rooms has the same amenities and are of the same size. The rent for the apartment and also the cost of the utility bills is $800. Once again, this includes the cost of the utilities as earlier mentioned. The apartment is centrally located and is just some minutes walk to the nearest bus station and also you would have easy and fast access to other locations. You would also be required to pay a security deposit as is the custom, the security deposit would be refunded to you at the end of your stay in the apartment if nothing is destroyed by you during your stay in the apartment. The deposit is $800. About Me: My Name is Tan Wan Shin I am a 22 year old Female. I am the only child of my parents and I live alone in this apartment.This apartment used to be my family apartment till when my Dad moved us all to London where he eventually passed away but I alone stay here in the apartment and have being renting it out for sometime now. My last flatmate left for France last week hence my search for new flatmates. I am calm and laid-back person and my hobbies are reading, swimming and also at times on Fridays/weekend, I attend social events but I have not being having the opportunity dues to my work to hang out with my friends. I work as a marketing officer and when I am free I go to the pool to relax my mind and also unwind. I also visit the gym to keep fit at times.. ;) Let me also know more about you because I believe it is essential that we get to know each other before we become flatmates. I shall be glad to send you pictures and also the contract so that we can conclude and be good flatmates. I await to read your response. Regards, Tan

Details of Scam Report
Room for rent at riverwalk apartment. The template used was as tipped off by another reporter on scamdex. Claims is alone, dad deceased, offering a room at "too good to be true/to refuse offer" Reply response from her was templated and asking for details of full name per IC, current residing address, photocopy of IC etc. To prepare a contract. All these before the room was even being viewed or her contact number shared. No contact number of hers was being provided to me and neither did she reply to my viewing request. Note: her ad has been removed. Did a search and found her being reported in scamdex with the same email template but different property Info.
