Alexandrea Stewart is con-artist who fled police in New York City has set up in Glasgow. She is/was blond, about 5'2", overweight, and in her late 20's to early 30's. She has gone by the names of "Alexandrea Stewart", "Alexandrea Macian Stewart", "Alex Stewart", "Andrea Stewart", "Kim Babbat", "Maggie", "Connie", "Carol Anne", "Katie Green", "AllieMac" and a few more. She may be using a different name at present. She is/was involved in real estate scams and larceny.

She has scammed many people in New York using different company names including "RentRoll-Manager.com", "4rentmagazine.com", "Practically Rented", "Uptown Downtown Realty", "Associated Owners", "Morgan Rentals", "Smooth Move" and a few others.

She is advertising on different UK bulletin boards to let apartments and also hire estate agents using a new fake company called "propertyprofessionalsuk.com".

I was looking for an apartment to rent in New York City and I answered an advertisement on craigslist.org posted by what I thought at the time was a real estate brokerage, a company called "Practically Rented" (Alexandrea Stewart).

I paid a fee of $195 directly to her and in return I was supposed to receive updated lists of apartments that matched my requirements with contact information. "Practically Rented" was also supposed to set up appointments for me to view apartments. She never set up an appointment, not a single one! She became very hard to reach, either by phone or email.

I went to her office several times to check on the status of an apartment for which she supposedly had sent my application. She always had some excuse! She told me to look at other apartments on the list (which rarely were updated with anything that fit my requirements), much of the contact information was bad and I wasted a lot of time with her. She had no interest in my apartment hunt after she took my money. Eventually I paid a true licensed real estate broker to find me an apartment.

According to the contract I signed and New York State law, I was entitled to a refund of $180 dollars if I did not find an apartment through their "service". I found out later that she operated as an illegal "Apartment Information Vendor" and not as a real estate broker. My experiences are for the most part identical to those of her other victims. I tried repeatedly to get my refund but I never saw my money again.

This is what Alexandrea Stewart has been doing since she left the US. She puts up websites with pictures of apartments that are ridiculously underpriced and finds her victims by advertising on craigslist.org which are taken down after people complain about them.

Her listings are fake! She steals pictures from other websites, say, of a $2100 apartment but changes the price to far less, puts it up on her site and claims that if you sign up with her scam company for a $79.95 "subscription" fee you will be provided contact info for the "bargain" apartment.

She uses PayPal to take the money. When customers complain and try to get a refund, they are told Paypal does not reimburse for "services". So her customers are out of luck. I've been told that she has hired a number of employees in the UK whom she has not paid; they are in the process of suing her, as I understand it.

In the US, she took the money in person and then shut her office, only to reappear in a new office a few blocks away with a new company name. After "Practically Rented" closed (She falsely claimed to have sold the company to avoid refunding customers), she opened "Uptown Downtown Realty" which also ripped people off.

The same complaints of fraud flooded in about "Uptown Downtown Realty" and the NYPD got involved. She fled to the UK before they caught her. Beware of this con-artist, she is very persuasive and nice to you in person until she gets your money!

BBC Watchdog: Glasgow Con-woman - Alexandrea Stewart or Alex MacIan, or Andrea Delauren

AUTHOR: M - (U.S.A.)

We are warning viewers to watch out for an American called Alexandrea Stewart or Alex MacIan, or Andrea Delauren, or whatever name she is using this week.

She set up shop in Glasgow last year with a business called Property Professionals Estate Agents and Management Ltd. She quickly found an office and furnished it. She employed staff and prepared advertising. Within a matter of weeks, she had set up a fully-fledged business.

Alex Stewart got herself a luxury apartment but those who dealt with her soon found out she wasn't all she appeared.

She had acquired all of the trappings of a successful businesswoman, it seems, without paying much for them. Alex simply bought goods and services and rarely settled her bills. She owes thousands of pounds to her employees, landlords, advertisers and suppliers.

She has a criminal history in the USA. Under the name Andrea Delauren, she was convicted for issuing worthless cheques. And using the name Vivian Smith she was found guilty of cheque fraud and charged with burglary. There is a warrant out for her arrest in California.


And finally, viewers in Bristol beware. It looks as if she is about to sign a contract for office premises for two new property ventures in the city.

Alexandrea Stewart/Andrea Delauren - Property cheat is convicted crook

AUTHOR: M - (U.S.A.)

Jan 7 2005

DON'T LET HER CON YOU TOO

Property cheat is convicted crook

By John Ferguson



AN AMERICAN property dealer who has left a trail of debt in Scotland is a convicted con artist.



Alexandrea Stewart moved from New York to Glasgow last year and set up an estate agency and letting company.



But the Record exposed her dealings in America and her mounting debts here.



Now we can reveal she has been convicted in the US of several counts of issuing worthless cheques.



Stewart was found guilty in Wisconsin of conning people out of cash.



Though she avoided a jail sentence, she was given three years' probation and ordered to pay a fine and apologise to her victims.



Geoff Wolf, captain of the investigation division of Connie Sheriff Department, confirmed the incriminating record.



He said: 'She was convicted for issuing worthless cheques. She was charged with six counts of this crime and she therefore has a criminal record in this state.



'The woman was sentenced to serve a three-year probationary term.'



He added: 'She had to pay fees and she had to meet with her victims and go through mediation with them and she had to pay $185.



'She was convicted for issuing one cheque for more than $2500, three for just under $1000 and two for over $1000.'



All the offences were committed in 2000 while Stewart was going by the name Andrea Delauren.



Stewart, 36, arrived in Glasgow a year ago and set up 4Rent Magazine.



She subsequently registered internet property firm, Property Professionals.



But while she claimed to be an expert in property deals,Stewart didn't even pay her own rent.



Several contractors who carried out work for her were left unpaid.



And employees taken on didn't receive a penny in wages after working for her for months.



One customer claimed he had allowed Stewart to rent out a flat he owned but that she never gave him the money for it.



But while pleading poverty, Stewart had been living in one of the city's plushest addresses at the GPO building in Glasgow city centre.



In New York, Stewart formed a company that promised to find apartments for a fee.



Several people said she took the fee, but didn't find them a home.



The local government in New York State confirmed they received 18 complaints about Stewart's company before she disappeared.



Stewart was not available for comment when we tried to contact her.

Alexandrea Stewart investigated in the Glasgow Daily Record

AUTHOR: M - (U.S.A.)

RECORD INVESTIGATION: DON'T BET THE MORTGAGE ON THIS WOMAN AND HER FIRM

Sep 20 2004



WEALTH WARNING TO PROPERTY BUYERS:



Exclusive By John Ferguson





AN AMERICAN businesswoman offering to find homes for Scots has left a trail of debt and unsatisfied customers.



Alexandrea Stewart moved from New York to Scotland last year and has set up a company to find people a flat or sell their house for a fee.



But the Record can reveal her almost identical venture in the US left customers claiming to have been left homeless and out of pocket.



And her Scottish business is piling up debts and her employees claim they have not been paid.



Stewart, 36, arrived in Glasgow a year ago and set up 4Rent Magazine.



Employment agency First People Solutions claim she approached them to provide five staff to work for her at the office on Oswald Street.



However, staff claim they were not paid for their time with the firm.



Stewart subsequently registered internet property company, Property Professionals, at the same address.



Yesterday, one of Stewart's former employees, Joe Habib, 27, from Glasgow, said: 'I worked for nine weeks but didn't get paid. I was taken on as a researcher but ended up decorating the office.'



A director of First People Solutions claimed Stewart had not paid the firm its 20,000 fee and said it had begun litigation proceedings against her.



He said: 'She is a total nightmare and shouldn't be allowed to do business.'



The landlord of her plush city centre flat claims she owes rent on the property, as do the letting agents for her office.



It is claimed she also owes money to the Herald property section and the internet firm who designed her website.



In New York, Stewart formed a company that promised to find apartment for a fee - - but several people claim she took their fee and didn't find an apartment.



The local government in New York State confirmed they received 18 complaints about Stewart's company Practically Rented before she disappeared.



When confronted with the claims, Stewart said: 'This company is all I have at the moment and I won't let anyone take it from me.



'So some people didn't get paid but I am trying to get this together so I can pay people.'

and an article from last year in the New York Post:



The New York Post



September 28, 2003, Sunday



HEADLINE: PRACTICALLY ZIP; E-MAIL REAL ESTATE SERVICE ACCUSED OF FRAUD



BYLINE: ANNE BECKER



Furious customers of apartment-listing service Practically Rented are saying the company is more like a practical joke.



The company solicited apartment-hunters through the popular craigslist.com, promising to send daily e-mails of New York apartment listings for an annual fee of $195 - all but $15 of which it claimed would be refundable if the hunter rented an apartment through other means.



Now, dozens of former customers have complained on web sites, to government agencies and the Better Business Bureau and say the e-mails were spotty, the apartments dingy and the company's representatives unreachable.



The ensuing squabble has dragged in major credit card companies, government agencies and the owner of craigslist.com, the popular online community.



At least six Practically Rented subscribers who found apartments elsewhere said they tried filing for the promised refund, only to find a computerized voice mail and no responses from a generic bookkeeping e-mail address.



The customers say instead of refunding the $195, Practically Rented charged their credit cards an additional $195 fee a few months later.



"When I heard the money-back guarantee, I assumed they were so good they could make money, but I immediately put my guard up," said environmental consultant Charlotte Matthews, who filed with the New York State Consumer Protection Board.



Three former employees of the company say the woman behind the mess is Alexandrea Stewart.



"Stewart is the source of the problem," said Maggie Ocampo, who said she left Practically Rented two months after Stewart hired her to manage an office for the company.



"She was always stressed out. She always had an excuse."



She has been villified on web sites as well, the subject of a bulletin board barrage of criticism.



Stewart, however, takes exception to that. "I have been scammed, taken advantage of and duped," she said.



The address under which Practically Rented was licensed - a suite at the Chelsea Hotel - matches the one Stewart has used to register a Web site for Albannach Entertainment, which recently posted a casting call on the Internet for a "mockumentary" on New York real estate.



According to Stewart, Practically Rented is seeking to sue Visa and Mastercard, whom she said froze 70 percent of the company's assets to grant customers' refunds, forcing her to take out $10,000 in personal loans.



Stewart said she lost her brokers' license seven years prior to her involvement with Practically Rented.



She pointed to Craig Newmark, owner of craigslist.com, as an owner of the company.



Newmark denied owning the company and said his involvment was limited to removing defamatory posts from his Web site.



"There are many brokers who aren't completely ethical who do really wrong things and we're trying to do something about it," he said.



Practically Rented's Web site lists a Las Vegas address as its current location, but the business services office in that county has no record of a license for the company.



The New York Department of State has received several complaints against the company and is waiting for a statement from Stewart before referring the case to the attorney general, according to a representative
