How to Spot a Scam

Apartment Scam: The Fake Red Coats Are Coming, The Fake Red Coats Are Coming!!

Last year we featured Cindy & Kenneth Roberts, two scum bags who earn a living by cheating people out of money. Since being exposed by us, they have changed their names and phone number. These people are based in the United Kingdom but insist they have an apartment in the USA for rent. In reality the apartment is factitious, much like the extremely low monthly rent.

Names: Ryan & Mary Peter Christensen
Tel: +44 702 4060053
Country: United Kingdom


Accomplice: John Lamont Caldwell
Tel: 773-467-7459 (Chicago, IL)

Hey,

Thank you so much for posting this. We were just in communication with "Mary" from the UK and a few flags came up in our email with them so we did a search. This truly helped. Please keep up your dedicated work as it probably just saved us from being scammed.

Wow, these people are unbelievable...I almost fell for this scam and was really excited to move into such a great apartment in DUMBO for $800. Now I'm just mad, and feel bad for all the victims who gave them the $200. Thank you so much for this website, you saved what could have been a horrible experience. Shame on these people.

I found this luxurious Manhattan apartment add in craigslist, it all seem too good to be true, but I thought they were just desperate due to the economic crisis. A person by the mane of Dmary Jane (djmarry11@yahoo.co.uk) got in contact with me and sent all the information for the rental agreement, after investigating the information provided by this person (building name, unit number and address) , results showed that this is all a “big scam” ; since there is only one building with this name in Manhattan; which is situated in a different location, the apartment number 14 does not exit and the building concierge does not know anything about the contact (djmarry11@yahoo.co.uk) or the apartment owner (ALPORT COOPER) whom requested a money order or transfer to foreign address (106-110 BELGRAVE ROAD, LONDON, SW1V 2BJ). Even the pictures that this criminals used to promote their scam were copied from a real estate website that is promoting the condos for sell; compare the two websites, address and pictures :
Condo living (http://www.condo-living-west.com/nyblog/2008/09/m127-new-york-city-apartments-at-127.html)
Craigslist.org (http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/vac/1294883156.html)
it is a shame that Craigslist a network for online advertisement which purpose is to help the community is now been used by con artist to scam honest people.
Sincerely,
Rick
