I posted my room to rent on this website "http://www.mudah.my/"
Then I have received a message from this phone number: +27 (81) 0156145 on 21 May 2015, 8:11 PM:
"I have a keen interest to rent ur property listed on mudah web so send me more details/fotos directly to firstname.lastname@example.org Pls, I prefer email only.
In a situation without any suspicion, I directly replied her thru email. Please refer to the attached email record as below. After she replied, then make me more curious about her. So, I checked her thru Facebook and start to have suspicions on her occupation since I found that in the Facebook she is nothing to relate to her job. And, her phone number is from "Luxembourg"?! Finally, I checked her email address and found that it is a scam! She is a SCAMMER!

Received the following sms responding to me ad on Gumtree to rent out my room.
" I have keen interest to rent your property listed on gumtree web so send me more details and photo directly to (email@example.com) Best Regards, Bless"
It looked very suspicious as I already have whole bunch of detailed photos posted on Gumtree. My wife and I decided to ignore her inquiry as it looked very strange. Two days later, which is now, I decided to goggle her email address and found whole bunch of scam reports related to the same email address with the exact same SMS text messages that she/he had send to other people. From what I have read so far, this is a she who is from Philippines..... Just want to warn people to watch out for scammers... Be vigilant! Good luck!
