Scam In Sulekha

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

 

There is scam in sulekha, when you post add in some places. You receive emails saying they are interested in resting your apartment.

 

Also there is one other posting in this forum, saying the below contact is fraud. You see that if you search my the [email protected]. email address.

 

They say that they will make the payment first to secure the apartment and ask youto remove the posting. They also say their creditor in US will pay you the amount and ask you for your details and mentions the creditor will pay little more and you will have to return to them the extra sum .

 

This is a scam, I received this types of contacts in 2 occasions, when I posted in providence, RI in 2 different occasions.

 

These contacts won't have a valid US number .... and they can't be reached over phone.

 

below is one email address from which these contacted me

below is email from them this scam

 

Hello Teja,
 
 I will really love to share the place with you.
 
So please i want you to remove the place,from further advert placement in the internet. Please tell me how much is the total amount is for the rent plus utilities.But i will like to let you know that i am only coming to the state for business and will l like to share a place.pending my time been in USA.
 
And also i will  like to inform your that my creditor in the United States of America is actually going to be responsible for the payment of the place and i have told him about this transaction and he said he will be sending the payment to you also he said the money I loaned to him has incurred some interests and he will be sending my money to you with the commission. Please the extra funds is for my ticket and traveling expenses to the US. Meaning you will be expecting a payment that is a little bit higher than the cost of the place, Please after the cost of the place! Can I Trust You to refund my balance funds back to me? do let me know this because its very important.
 
Please if you kindly agree i will need your full name and address in your reply so that payment can be dispatched to you as soon as possible. Have a nice day and thanks once again for your response to my mail.
 
Get back to me ASAP,
 
Best Regards,

 

 

 

 

I don't have another, it's from a lady though. This lady says she is in mexico and her employer will pay you the amount for the room; which he will send few hundreds extra and you need to return the extra sum...

Naaku pedda bumper offer thagilindi . He sent 3000$ check to me .  By that time I received the check I sold all the items except few. I talked with that over the phone to cancel the check, he said he cannot cancel the check and want to buy the rest of the stuff for 400$ and told to return the money through money gram. I went to the bank , bank gave me 3000$ ,I thought he is a genuine guy when I received the amount from the bank.  I returned the 2600$ through money gram. Later he didnt show up , I was so happy during that time thought I save 400$ because he didnt show up . Later I moved from my place and came to east coast ,after a week bank debited 3000$ from my account saying that the check I gave to the bank is a fraud. I fight with the bankers how can they able to give the money if the check is fraud, they said as I am a loyal customer from so many years and holding enough bank balance they give it to me. Finally they told that customer is a responsible for the check not the bank. I complaint to the police but there is no use .Its been almost 15 months . Police told that as the people in Nigeria will do all this kind of stuff. US police are not responsible for the internation frauds. 
If I want to fight against the case I have to pay 15000$ later they may search for those guys but they cannot assure about the money I lost.

Things I learned from my experience:-

1. Dont deposit the money in western union or money gram with out knowing the person personally.

2. Dont accept the check or any deposits from unknown persons. 

3. dont ever deal with the persons who are not willing to meet personnally.

he replies to my post to rent a room and then says he is here and there and he is coming to establish a business. I gave him my info and he gives me a tracking number. that doesn't ships for few days. When I asked him when can we meet in person, he says next month he will be in USA and says my companies secretary made a mistake and send over money and he will tell me how to send him the excess balance. It started to sound fishy to me but normally it doesn't to others. So guys beware.
