"Hello, I am very keen about renting d unit so please send me more details to my email for further discusion Rdgs"
I Email her some room photos, and near by amenities details. (Without my address block or any details.)
Replied from firstname.lastname@example.org with attached PASSPORT PICTURE
Thanks for getting back to me. I am a simple, cool and non-smoker lady. I am willing to rent the unit as I am at sea at the moment as i am a Coastguard Agency employee in USA but i was Born and brought up in San Juan, Philippines. I am coming to study and I will work part-time down there but due to the nature of my work, phone calls making and visiting of website are restricted. I only squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email regarding this. i am ready to rent it asap so tell me how much is the rent/share per month and how much deposit do i have to pay. Please send me more period you wish to rent this out, I have attached my ID Passport with this email for you to have a view of me and my personal info..
Looking forward to read back from you soon
I Replied to her email, about the rental charges. And suddenly have a weird feeling as how will someone just take a picture of her passport details and forward to u? So i decided to google and found out she's a scammer.
Hope this helps, Cheers.
