She posted a listing looking for a roommate for a home in Long Beach California. She said she was a pediatrician and was looking for a roommate for $600 utilities included. We communicated via email and text messages after I transferred the “security deposit” she stopped responding to my text and blocked me on rooster.com

  • Monetary Loss: $0
A guy claiming to be Ron listed a house for rent. 650 a month all utilities included. He stated he was out of town on business for 3 years. Asked me to send him first months rent and deposit ($1,350) and he would send me the key. I told him I wouldn’t send money without a key to verify it was in fact his house. He then mailed me a key that is supposed to ship out tomorrow.4/9 on the fedex receipt is Ernest Thompson and there is also a address listed as well. I’m not sure what he mailed to me...

  • Monetary Loss: $780
I tried to rent a vacation condo, signed rental agreement and paid through paypal. When we arrived at the complex there was no reservation in my or his name and no answer to calls, texts, emails. I see this has happened to others, I wish I had looked into his name and scams like I am doing now!
