Hello, I was just about to pay when i have this issue with the moving and shipping company, the shipping company says i will need to pay for the moving before they can ship my items, they charge me RM2,800 for pick up and delivery, and payments for Mover agent will be made to the corporate international headquarter in China. The payment is to be made through Western Union money transfer. I will add RM2,800 to my rent deposit that i will transfer to your PayPal account which you will help me to send to their corporate headquarters in China. I will send the funds through PayPal transfer and I will email you to let you know when i am through with the payment. This can be done by visiting Western Union outlet nearby, I will also include RM200 for the Western Union money transfer commission . I would have done it myself but i am not with enough cash here but i can transfer it from my PayPal account because it is attached to my bank account..... I will appreciate your cooperation here. Regards

I just got the same scammer on the same day when i first put up my house rental ad on ibilik.my. Xinlu (scammer name) and I had been emailing each other for a few days. She introduced herself as a Chef working in US marine coastguard and looking to for new house for renting since she is going to be relocated soon. After asking from me about the house details and the total cost she needed to spend for the first 3months, she said she is ready to paypal me the upfront payment. this is already sound fishy because normally tenants either pay you through bank-in or face-to-face cash handover. But she can only accept paypal. Alright, i happen to have a paypal account so i give her mine. After a few emails, she said she needs to move her belongings to the house she is going to rent but needs my help to pay for her first for the moving cost. She said she cant do it since she is working on the sea (should be offshore i guess) and thats why she ask me to pay for her for the moving cost and she will pay the moving cost together with my rental upfront payment through paypal. And she gives me her phone number which is +63 country code, and she text me saying i can use the money to Western Union and pay for the moving company, BUT I NEED TO USE MY OWN ID WHEN ASKING FOR DELIVERY SERVICE AS SHE SAID I AM THE ONE WHO ASKS FOR THE DELIVERY!!!. Whoever read this, please be at your highest alert, she claims she is moving her belongings, but who knows what is the actual things inside? Why wouldnt she use her own ID. I decided to stop all nonsense because it really not making sense at all. i asked for a talk over the phone so that i can listen whether it is a real she or he, but she refuse to talk over the phone since her working environment does not allow her to talk. I asked her where she is now, she said in Philipine. Since she is a chinese, I text her back in chinese words saying that she can move over first to sign the tenancy agreement and get her things over by visiting the local Western Union by herself in later time, and i will certainly reserve the unit for her until she is ready to move in. But she does not reply anything back after i write in chinese text. I wonder she is a real chinese too. So beware of scam, it is definitely scam. Watch out folks!
Here is the first few emails she intro herself, just a reference for all those who encounter this scammer to make a comparison: ---Scam Email intro begins---- Hello, Many thanks for your response,let me introduce myself I am Dai Xinlu 27 years nonsmoker Chinese lady relocating to work and study part time down there, I presently work as a Chef with the US Coast Guard Marine Inspection Detachment Singapore and I have limited time to surf the internet but I will find time to call you. Kindly get back to me with below information:
1. Get back to me with the your address for me to forward it to my mover agent to calculate the total cost of moving my stuffs to Malaysia.
2. I will be renting for 2 years. I will like you to kindly calculate the total cost covering my first three months’ rent together with deposit but I will be staying long as soon as your room is available.

Advertised room in shared house on Gumtree. Got same reply as others on this site, more or less word for word. She would not speak on Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp said she was too busy at work. What, even on the weekend? so I googled and look what I found. She is a 24 year old Indonesian national named Jessica Wiruwan this time.

I posted a AD on gumtree. It came from a number +27810156145. He says 'i'm interested in buying your item listed on gumtree so send me the final price and address directly to my email johnmarkbluebottle@gmail.com Pls email only.' I got suspicious so i googled and came across this website. I only replied him and without sending my address to him. So lucky! Otherwise he could use my address and email to do something bad like paypal etc. Keep a lookout and beware guys. No transactions are too easy and smooth.

After enquiring about room and room rent . she replied
I am satisfied with the cost and am willing to pay for it via paypal to send me your paypal information for me to make the payment or go to www.paypal.com to create a free PayPal account if you do not have PayPal account already. Send me the total amount to pay now. (rent + deposit) Kind Regards, Bless.
Sounded pretty fishy , no1 finalises a home without viewing . msg is from a mobile no with country code of germany and woman claims to be in US. Googled about scams related to easyroommate and rentals found 1 similar scamster report and others sound pretty much same.
