This guy has moved onto a more elaborate scheme now.  Responded to some used furniture on Craigs List and sent "certified check"  wanted us to pay movers with it as well (wanted us to cash check and immediately western union balance of money to movers).  Smelled of a scam from the start so I got the police and fraud dept from my bank involved.  Sounds like they have enough for an arrest.  He is texting from numbers 352-316-7824 as well as 831-613-1722 and calling from 347-687-0495.  The address he wanted money Western Union to is:
Christy McLaughlin
PO Box 101
Washington DC 20002

DON'T FALL FOR THIS LOW LIFE!!

Seems Amy Doug is popular and is trying her luck in staten island, I came across a to good to be true listing for a 3 br condo and after some weird exchange for info which I only got as far as phone #s for my cell,house and work  here is what she is saying now. Now from my further look into this address it is currently listed as for sale on a website. How can these people get away with this?

My name is Amy Doug, I am the owner of the apartment at 100 Colfax Avenue #4X, Staten Island NY 10306 and it is still available. The monthly rent is $1450, security is  $1450.Presently, i am in Canada working as chief technical officer in  Calgary, Canada. I can come down to show you the apartment if i am convinced that you are serious. The initial plan was to sell the apartment. which we tried, but the Realtor inflated the prize hence taking more time to sell, because of this reason, we need a responsible person that will take very good care of the apartment. Most importantly ,a serious and trust worthy person who will be willing to pay the rent without delay.
Note; the move-in cost is the total amount of 1 months rent and a security deposit. As a very busy person I would only take my time to fly down to the US for you to preview the apartment, only if you accept to pay the above move-in cost after seeing the apartment.
FURNITURE : Apartment is fully furnished but if you are moving in with your furniture there is a storage room in the unit where you could keep our furniture.
Utilities are included ;Electricity , water , gas , cable , heat. There is dryer/washer hooked up.
 
Call me on 5186350568 for more update.
 
THE LEASE IS FLEXIBLE (3 MONTHS) (6MONTHS) (1YEAR) (2YEARS)

BEWARE STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK....He claims he owns apartments at  5 Windham loop in Staten Island, New York.

He goes by the name Wellington Holbrook, his email is markoflife137@yahoo.com 312-857-3571

TO GOOD TO BE TRUE for the rent to be only  $900 INCLUDING utilities.Therefore I went to look at the apartment where he claims he owns, the building does exist but the apartment number DOES NOT!!!

I then went home and googled his name, which of course came up SCAM, his phone number SCAM, and he speaks english but  sounds like he is a  foreigner.

please always RESEARCH FOR NAMES, PHONE NUMBER

Also, if the person is overseas its most likely  a SCAM

He is using a different name,different phone, and "story", similar to before though, uses the email address <famedxy@yahoo.com> :

My name is Mr Tom keen, I own the $920 per month apartment located at 3725 Henry Hudson Parkway, Bronx NY 1046. I am the chief technology officer at blue star energy. Chicago IL. I can come down to show you the apartment if i am convinced that you are serious about renting. My wife and I need a responsible person that will take very good care of the apartment. Most importantly, a serious and trust worthy person who will be willing to pay the rent without delay.
Note; the move-in cost is the total amount of 2 months rent and a security deposit. As a very busy person I would only take my time to fly down to NY for you to preview the apartment, sign the lease and move in only if you accept to pay the above move-in cost after seeing the apartment.
FURNITURE : Apartment is fully furnished but if you are moving in with your furniture there is a storage room in the unit where you could keep our furniture. All utilities are included in the rent.

I recently found this post online and responded: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/abo/2575647730.html

I was getting ready to call and say let's meet! When I googled his number to, silly me, see what time zone he was in so I wouldn't wake him up, I found this post and I am so glad I did!!

Here is the email he sent me, and that I unfortunately filled out. Glad I found this post before he has anymore information on me/we met/took my money. I am worried about my identity, but have warned Craigslist, both in the US and Canada. Sent all of the information I could about the matter. I urge everyone else to do so as well.

Don't fall for this!!!

Sadly, this individual - whoever he is - has ripped off my name and my identity and is trying to scam people in NY.  I am a Canadian, live here and work here, and have no business in the USA.  Ironically, Sam Lamb is a colleague of mine here in Alberta, and clearly they are doing the same to him.  I am curious if there is any legal way for me to have him cease and desist (we have our lawyers on that).  Very sad that people would do something like this.
