New York Apatment Scam Update

The scam artists who were trying to "rent" a non-existent apartment in Brooklyn, NY have now changed locations due to being exposed by this site. Their new location is located in Manhattan.

On 12/28/08 a CL user submitted this info.

Location: 253 West 73rd. St.
New York, NY

They are now posting an apartment in Manhattan in a very chic building on the UWS - 253 West 73rd - for only $800. Meanwhile, the ad asked for a different price and had contradictions galore within it. While I thought it was a scam, decided to send an e-mail anyway (wishful thinking, perhaps!). Received a long and detailed e-mail back, along with photos. Stay clear of these people who obviously have nothing better to do with their lives.

You can file a complaint to the authorities in Durham, UK. I am going to write to them... perhaps, if they receive enough complaints they might check it out... who knows.
