I have been emailing back and forth with this very nice sounding "young lady" (she told me she wasnt quite 22 yet) about a room I have for rent. She has been living with uncle in another state..has job offer nearby to me etc. Next email comes says she will have check mailed for first and last rent before she leaves to go visit with other uncle who is ailing and lives in finland. Then a fews days later..comes an email from her..."Favor Please" Seems she wants to have her furniture and car shipped down and she will make the check for enough to cover the shipping costs and would I pay the shippers for her when her stuff arrives, also would I pick her up from airport when she gets back from overseas. Warning bells start ringing I hear "Danger Will Robinson, Danger" in my head. So I play along...and this morning I get an email saying her uncle had passed away and she would be staying for another 2 weeks to pay her respects and reasuring me the check was on its way.....(sounds good eh?) Sure enough in the mail today was a check for $2000 Looked legit too! even had a watermark in it. So I rush It down to the bank and the cashier verified it on the spot (at my request)! FAKE! So forwarded all the emails to the bank ...I really hope they catch this person/s ! At least I only lost not being able to rent to anyone else for 3 weeks and not a bunch of $ in bank fees.
