Kelly Smart and Robert Leo are the same person

We have reason to believe that Kelly Smart and Robert Leo are in fact the same person. If you are/have been in contact with this person please know that they are worthless losers who want nothing more than to scam you out of money.

Name: Robert Leo, Kelly Smart

Just so you know, there is a new scam on craigslist where there is a fabulous apartment for rent and the contact of "kelly" - no other information is given. When you contact "her," she says that she wants you to go to a website to fill out credit information for a credit check. My friends were looking for apartments in two different cities (Dallas and Grand Rapids) and saw the same photos, same apartment, same contact name. It's identity theft!

After responding to an inquiry on Craigslist from James Burrows here is his reply to me:

Thank for the prompt response my secretary will process and mail a certified draft to cover the cost as am completely satisfied with it.I will need the details of whom & where to mail the payment
1.Name to be on the check
2.Home address
3.Mobile #
Please note 'United Parcel Service' do not deliver to P.O.Box addresses and i will not be mailing a draft to one.My mover will becoming over for the pick up right only after the payment as been delivered.Kindly delete the posting as am totally committed to buying from you to save cost,..Here is my relay phone # is (210) 209-8524 am deaf and will receive your phone messages via email, regards

This seemed odd so I "Googled" him and discovered this website. Thank you for the heads up!

What I can't figure out is what does he have to gain with this information other than my home address.
