Reported as James Bennett on this site multiple times, he showed a room in flat 33 of the signal.building at 91 Newington causeway, elephant and castle, London. Found the as on spare and he said it'd be £400 deposit which I paid, then i was contacted a few weeks later by a stranger saying he had been sent a receipt for MY deposit with MY name on it and tracked me down on Facebook, to discuss things with me. This stranger had also been offered the same room, and had paid deposit. Now we both wanted our money back, we got it after a long time of threatening police action and after multiple failed attempts at meeting him to collect cash, i was transferred the money in the end from a random bank account.

He has ginger hair and is quite tall, 6'4 maybe, London accent and may seem nice at first but is a total crook who's disgusting practices hopefully land him in jail soon.
I have a picture of him, post a followup comment if you want it.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
