When he sent emailed the photos, he made clear that he was in the U.S. and I wouldn't be able to view the apartment because he is away. When I texted him that I would need to see the apt in person to consider going any further, he texted back he would DHL the keys to me to see the apt, only after I send him a "deposit" of the first month's rent.
In his email he identifies himself only as "Michael C" with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, and second contact phone number with a San Francisco area code 650-429-8672

This number says on caller ID -John Kendall along with the number 347-753-9068. I answered and it is an Indian sounding (country) guy obviously in a call room with lots of background talking, he is telling me he is with Microsoft and there is a virus on my computer that is doing something which I can't understand due to his bad English. I act totally surprised and then he is telling me he needs my bank account number to fix the problem.
So I say how about 555111-Screw you and I can tell he is writing it down. He then proceeds to tell me that there aren't any letters in bank account numbers which I then tell him there are in mine and to go wait by the mailbox and I'll send him a check. I then proceed to hang up on him.

I posted a Craigslist ad to sell some jewelry on the west coast. I received a text from an east coast number 508-952-0810 on 2/2/14 which I found associated with a scam online. I responded to the number telling them I found them associated with a scam and would not do business with them. I received another text from a different phone number, 302-464-6268, also located on the east, coast within 15 minutes with same verbiage as the first number. I didn't respond and have now received another inquiry on 2/10/14 from yet another east coast number 347-676-0940. I have changed my Craiglist ad to say that I will only sell local in the hopes it will stop these inquiries. Unfortunately I doubt it will stop the scammers from finding some other unsuspecting person to rip off.

From: SCAM REPORT!
The telephone number 347-796-0571 is another proxy number from the car scam syndicate operated from Romania who posts stolen photos of cars then posts them on free ad sites such as Craiglsist, endlessly.
These thieves used to use email addresses only and have started to use proxy phone numbers to add the look that they are real. These parasites jobs are to create fake ads then rip off Americans using BS stories why the cars are so cheap, then send counterfit escrow sites that request wire transfers and promise free shipping. You WILL be ripped off and WILL loose every cent to these useless scum who spend the money they steal on booze, gambling, prostitutes and expensive cars. There is a very detailed history of these crooks if you Google Romanian Car Scam.
BEWARE, these are the lowest of the low form of human and we hope the light of exposing this ongoing scam acts as a way to rid the world of these criminals.

Caller Type: Telemarketer
This number calls repeatedly! When I finally answered it was a robo call for voting. There is no option to stop these calls..and, I want them to stop! When I call the number back it just rings until it doesn't ring anymore.ENOUGH ALREADY!

Keeps calling and texting with inappropriate comments. Won't stop when I ask. I don't know this person, this person doesn't know me. Number is from a different state than where I'm from.
