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.

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.
