A nice apartment in Melbourne

  • by: Bart.Swinkels
  • #871
  • Jan 30, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $570
After an ad on Facebook (Houseshare Melbourne, https://www.facebook.com/groups/837823082977519/permalink/969976939762132/) and some email contact I decided everything seemed to be alright. I was in a bit of a hurry to get a place to stay in Melbourne City so I thought everything was alright, since I couldn't find any negative records on nor his name or address. I transferred money to Mr. Roger Wingo to receive the key. However, I never received the key of course. Then I told him I had to go home and kindly asked him to refund the money, which he didn't do of course. Attached is a photo of his drivers license.

I also have an address with another name, which I transferred the money to:
Lasonya Feltus
108 cr (Country Road) 3318
Atlanta Texas 75551
United States of America

The loss is in Australian Dollars, which equals about 570USD
