I received an email just like this one about an ad on craigslist exactly like this one. It was about a furnished apartment in San Rafael and the couple wanted me to wire money through Western Union to Ukraine to Emmanuel Lamberton. The emails in this post are identical to the ones I recieved. I went to the address they provided me and spoke with one of the neighbors who informed me that neither of them owned the apartment and to not waste my time or money.

Kimberly Lamberton had sent me a message after replying to her Craigslist ad here in Vermont. For a 1bedroom apartment all utilities included, including electric. She said due to an accident that she is unable to speak on the phone but that her husband can. They were living in Vt but after the accident they moved in with family in Texas. She said that I struck her as "an amazing person and trustworthy" to rent her fully furnished apartment. I would have to send 550$ for deposit and 550$ for 1st rent. After I send the money western union she would send documentation and keys FedEx or DHL to my old address. I asked for at least a copy of the lease because I said this feels like a scam. She sent a descriptive lease agreement, e-signed by her as a PDF. Is this a scam? I believe it is but can they really send a PDF "Agreement Lease"?

It's a shame that so many of these scams are out there, and it looks like these same waste-of-life people are doing it over and over again.  Im sure there are many legit rentals on here but don't use Craigslist.  Seriously, its not worth the risk.  Use certified ones like VRBO.com or Homeaway.com.  

Good luck and go with your gut instinct!!!

And this is their reply:

I agreed with you, But we don't allow anyone here until he or her arrival date, To secure the rest of the clients inside the apt. That's why we have our good reasons that if you love the apt then you must pay the %50 deposit since you Google the address and have some pictures of the apt on Craigslist, I don't think you should have anything to doubt about. We only accepted Money Gram for now because we currently working on our pay pal account. Let me know when you are ready so that i can send you the booking agreement form a long with payment info. Receipt will be issue out to you as soon as we do confirm your payment.


Yea, DEF SCAM, THANKS AGAIN FOR POSTING!

Thank you for posting! Looking for a rental for friends coming into town to visit me (there is 4 of them and they can't stay with me). I got the EXACT same email from Bridgett in San Diego.

I just wrote her back and said, "Actually, I live in San Diego and this rental is for friends coming into town. I would like to come by and see it first - when can we arrange this?"  Should be interesting if I actually GET a response!

Mrs. Bridget. (bbapt40@aol.com)--that is the email address she/he/it/they are scamming from this time.

that was the email i got back after I told her what dates we were looking for. It was for CMA fest and we grew suspicious when the rates did not increase. My friend that is going emailed her to discuss the payment options and when she was told to do a money gram she immediately became suspicious and googled the name. I'm so glad she did because this website came up with the same exact scam! When I found out and told her no thank you. She says "why you no interested anymore"

This post is one of those scams. I received the exact same email from "Mrs. Bridget" when I inquired about the availability for CMA fest. I thought it was too good to be true when the rates didn't increase when I told her what dates I would be there since all other rentals had an increase in rent rates. Luckily when my friend emailed her to book it she told her to wire money via money gram because their paypal account was down. My friend (victim to an internet scam recently) was suspicious and googled the name and found these websites informing us of the scam. Thank you all for posting! It saved us alot of money. I also reported it to craigslist. But does anyone know another website or agency I can report to? I tried the federal one but it kept timing out on me. Thanks!P4DS

The apartment is outstanding in having bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, high quality wood and wrought iron furnishing and all German kitchen facilities.

A pleasant and practical abode while in Cannes, be it on business or for leisure, its has all the amenities such as A video player and DVD player are provided. Free High Speed Internet.

Note: the post included pictures


Compare to other rentals $50 is a very low price, I was already suspicious but I decide it to send an email anyway.  This is the response I got from Mrs. Bridget.

Oh my goodness! We were almost scammed also!  We were trying to book a vacation at Killington Vermont and found an available condo ski in/ski out that seemed almost too good to be true!  Got a little fishy with the email correspondence with several different names and then he asked for the money to be wired. That's when I googled his name and found this site!  He is still using Robert Munei and the address he used is in Adelanto, CA. The phone number he texted from was 207-619-3410.  Wow, I can't believe this guy is still getting away with this!  We reported to Craigslist, but I hope this investigation will go further!  Unbelievable!  I guess when it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Thanks to all of you for previously posting which confirmed our suspicions!  You saved us, so I am posting this in hopes to warn someone else who is unlucky enough to encounter this guy.

So sketchy! I set up a paypal account and had almost transferred money when I found "Keith Simmons" as an alias on this site, THANK YOU everyone.

I received several emails to set up a vacation rental in Bethany Beach, DE. Then received a very official rental agreement form, no typos or anything amiss. Very tricky! Except then the rental property address wasn't filled in, he refused to tell me even the street name, and then I was supposed to just forward money into "Sassyjo62@yahoo.com" followed by a request to transfer to "Curtisswart@sbcglobal.net"

The rental form had:
Owners Name: Linda Brady
Agent Name: Keith Simmona

while the email address used was:
keith simmona <Simmons.homerentals01@housemail.com>

This has been so upsetting and it didn't even work, I really appreciate the people who have contributed to this site.

I'm stringing this guy along he has a rental listed at York beach Maine, I said send me the agreement he sent an agreement for Santa Monica, then emailed and said that was a typo. So I'm going to send $1 Western Union. Who knows where the guy or girl is from could be anywhere, I just want to f*#k with him now and lead him on. They have a lot of time on their hands to be the crooks they are. I also asked to give me his phone number just in case my wife has any questions....Turn the tables on them that's all.

I was searching for a home to rent in the Santa Barabara area and came across an ad for a luxurious home for $400 a night. I knew it was too good to be true but emailed him and received the following response from a James Jackson:

Thank you for showing interest. The property is still available for the date chosen. I am sure that this is one of the best property you can get around at this reasonable rate but i cannot guarantee the hold of the property until you book for it. You are required to pay the full rental fee and a refundable security fee of $200 to enable me hold the property for you as there is rush for the property at this time. I will issue you a receipt confirming your payment. You get to notify me of the exact time you will be arriving in to make arrangement to pick you up. There is no extra charges for this also. I will render this service for free. I am an agent.We accept Bank Deposit as for of payment I will send you our booking and payment form as soon as i have your reply to know you are interested in the property.

Property Address :  4840 Sandyland Rd Carpinteria, CA 93013.

2 NIGHTS   = $800 inclusive of tax and cleaning fee & discount fee
SECURITY:$200    (Will be refunded when you Checking out)
TOTAL DEPOSIT: $1000

I wrote him back for his phone number and received  the (619) 356-6634 number. Googled it and as I had suspected it, he is a fraud. Sad thing is I found the legitimate rental agents and told them and they said, yes this happens often and despite them telling craigslist, craigslist is not doing a thing about it. I was a big fan of craigslist but craigslist's lack of seeing its responsibility and acting as a major vehicle in fraud, prostitution, sale of stolen goods, thefts, and other such crimes and doing something to address these issues makes me stay away from craigslist.
