Guy from England, responded to my Craigslist ad, for house to rent. Said his company "AERO" was moving him here. We discussed in which way he would like to rent the house. Said his company was going to issue a check and send it to me, and it would include all of the monies he needed for the rental payment, deposit, and his travel. I received the check and the company listed on the check was "Hospice & Pallative Care" which seemed odd. My husband thought it was someone sending him a check, since he has stage 4A colon cancer and is in a body brace, knee brace and walker, on Medicare. Finally sorted out, via Bright Cole emailing me the FedEx tracking number, that the check was from Bright Coles company. I deposited the check into my account. Several days later, Bright Cole asked me to refund the amount above the house rent and deposit, to a person he called his "travel Agent". Cole was even asking me if I could pick him up from the airport. Still being suspicious, I ran a internet check on Ronald Smith, to see if he existed at the address provided and found that he did. The next day, Bright Cole emailed me that Ronald Smith had to make a trip to London and could I please send the Money Gram to Ronald in his London address. I did exactly that. The following day, suddenly Bright Cole is saying how a co worker had died and he would have to remain in London on assignment, for a few extra months and could I refund the rest of the money, so he could pay his company back. I said no, and that the bank thinks this is a scam to launder money or fund terrorist. After that comment, Bright Cole told me to keep $150. for all of my trouble and to just send $500. now, so he could pay the company back and for me to pay him the rest, after the bank released the funds next week. All of that was 2 days ago. I received a call from my bank yesterday, saying the check he sent to me had never cleared. Now I am in the negative at the bank. I would be most happy to send you all the emails and the wire transfer that I made. Would be even more happy to keep playing along with the guy, to help you track him down and shut down his operation.
