The Creative Mind of Online Scammers (Part 1 of 2)
Sunday, February 3, 2013
I currently looking for a new roommate and, in pursuit of this noble cause, posted an ad on craigslist.

Here is one email interaction I had:

Fiona Lambert (waiting435@gmail.com):
Is the room posted on Craigslist still available?

Me:
Hi Fiona,
Yes, it's still available. I'm showing it to some people over the next few days.

Thanks.

Dave

Fiona:
Hello,

It's nice hearing from you again. My name is Fiona, 24 years of age, fun-loving, outspoken, friendly, clean, caring and respectful of others, a non-smoker(although I can hangout in a smoky bar so I'm not allergic to it), don't do drugs, drink occasionally and drama free kind of person. I graduated last year from Edinburgh University, Scotland. I am single and have no children, do bible studies on weekends and sometimes Karaoke nights with my roommates. I would love to secure the room for myself before my arrival to the state as I'll be moving in with my things. I like my roommate or housemate to be a very caring and friendly person and I promise he/she will enjoy staying with me in the house because I'm lively and easy-going. I will be in the States before the end of this month for the next one year as I'll be coming for my master degree program. I was born in Scotland (UK) and my Dad is from Kahului,Hawaii but has been living in Scotland for over 27 years.

I obtained my bachelor's degree from the University Of Edinburgh and I speak fluent English with a Scottish accent. I have a degree in International Relations and I'm currently visiting a cousin.I'm really interested in renting from you and I hope you consider renting the room to me.

I understand I can't be able to view the place in person so I would prefer some recent pictures of the room and maybe the exterior.I would like you to tell me more about you and also, if you have a garage or parking space since I will have my own car.Please let me know the total payment of the place so I can forward your email and information to my Dad since he is the one to be paying the bills. The payment will be drawn from a United States Cashier's Check and I would need the following information from you to have my Dad issue out the rental payment to you on time.

Full Name :
Address (NO PO BOX) :
City,State,Zip-Code:
Phone Number:

You can reach my Dad directly if any need arises on +447024065425

Thanks,

Fiona Lambert

This seems like an excessive amount of information for a second email. It seems suspicious.

Does she like long walks on the beach too? Also, I'm curious as to how she's lived in Scotland for 27 years when she's 24 years old... It's either a scam or some creepy internet person. Like the ones you see on that MTV show, "Catfish"
