There was a vacation rental advertised on Craigslist for a house in Santa Cruz, Ca. *** Mott Ave Santa Cruz, CA. I looked up the property online and saw that the ad had the exact content as the original sale listing. The renter told me that they purchased the property as a vacation house and was a personal rental when I asked for more details about his rental agency. He provided me 2 email of recent renters and they both provided positive responses. It was through this website that I found association with the same email address that backed up my suspicion that it was probably not a legitimate ad. Thank you for site. I am sure the people conducting the fraud can easily create new email addresses but just in case, the email addresses used as references are [email protected] & [email protected] Paypal account used -[email protected] Venmo account used - @Timothy-Palmer-25.

I advertised my house on Creglist and this lady by name Lacy Conrad contacted me via text message that she is dumb and wanted to move to Maryland from Colorado to pursue her studies. She told me her father will be paying the rents. A couple of days later, I received a check for $4800.00 from Domaine Carneros. I informed the lady i have received the chec. She asked me to send cash app to a dealer in the amount of $3600.00 so her car can be delivered to my address before her arrival. I asked her for a letter of authorization to transfer the money which she did sent. I sent the money($3600.00) to MAI XIONG through cash app using the phone number she provided to me as 720-292-9199. After I had completed the transactions and using the balance $1200.00 to start setting up the basement for my new tenant, i was shocked to check my account to find out that the check i had deposited has been returned as bad check. I stiil have handy a second check she mailed out to me claiming her father made a mistake to send out two checks to me. She advised me to keep the second check until her arrival on January 22nd 2020.
