My response email....

Wednesday September 7, 2011 at 8 am Chicago time

Oh Renee!  Can this be true?  It would be wonderful.  It would be a solution to my prayers!  God Bless you. How could you know.  I am struggling for my life up here and have lost just about everything, and potentially my home and have been looking for a job since February of 2009.  And, I feel like I am going under.  The car would be used to live.  To go to job interviews, to get freelance work and to get food.  The basics.  I am a 61 year old male, forcefully retired by this economy and pushed to the brink.  I feel like I am always on the edge of disaster and the car issue is a huge component of being able to move forward.  

Only, one problem.  I am in Chicago and your in Pasadena, Texas.  I would need to figure out how to get down there from Chicago.  Let me look into that.  Probably a train from Chicago or something like that.  How would the transaction and title transfer occur?  Let me work on this and get back to you.  In the meantime you can give me a little idea of how you handle transferring the title down there in Texas? I also attached my resume.  The one I have been using to find work.  It may give you a little more info about me.

Her response email...

Hello Thomas,
I am glad you respond fast, it is for real i know it would hard for some people to believe,The reason I want to give the car out for free because I am suffering from a long time breast cancer. By all indications my condition is really deteriorating and doctors have advised me that I could not live beyond the next two months because the cancer stage has reached a critical stage.I don't want to think negative about this car.I really take good care of my car and I can assure you will have no complains and please i don't want you to tell anybody about this car because they are bad people out there who can take this car from you. The car is currently with Christan Kingdom shipping company that was located at Pasadena,Texas.This is their web site: www.christan-kingdom.com,Email them at info@christan-kingdom.com  for shipment.

Regards
Renee

Then our girl dying of cancer writes...

Thomas,
I just receive a message from them,they said it would cost you $350 for shipment,please let me know as soon as you get the car. Then I began doing some online research and ran the vin and no I really became concerned and began to ask the Shipping company some questions.   It has been quiet since them...

Wednesday September 7, 2011 at 3:10 pm Chicago time

Dear Terrysa Leteff at Christan Kingdom Shipping,

I was not aware that you shipped cars.  Or would ship the car and that there was a fee.  Was this my miss understanding?  This is her letter and description of the vehicle (pictures attached). Would you have with a view of the license plate on it?  This is a description by the owner.  Please verify as we ware talking about a payment to a 2nd party in the transaction.  Please verify the mileage as it say in the letter below it has 35,800 miles but when I run the vin I am seeing dozen of ads for a car with this vin number but with 193485 miles.  Pasted below is the concern via this link...

http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=en&site=&source=hp&q=1B3EJ46X8YN104427&pbx=1&oq=1B3EJ46X8YN104427&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=1562l1562l0l2200l1l1l0l0l0l0l215l215l2-1l1l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=67cca108e1ea2034&biw=1169&bih=563

And Carfax has a 34 records in there database on this care some of which refer to a Manufacturer recall for a variety of safety concerns.  

Again, this is the description of the vehicle I was given by the owner, or seller, Renee Darrian.

I would be making payment via Wire Transfer through Western Union money transfer.  Please provide the name of the organization as it is listened on the Western Union account, address, and phone and other particulars they want on the Western Union Money transfer form.  I did not see the information on our website.  So I tried calling you at the number you listed in your email below and no one answered.  When I called again it said that the Sprint customer was not available.  Evidently a concern when trying to conduct a transaction and know precisely that I will not not have problems registering it in Illinois and obtaining clear title.   

I went here as you instructed for shipping payment info... http://www.christan-kingdom.com/csPayment.html

Looks line the word Christain is miss spelled in your URL or abbreviated strangely to Christan.  I am sure Renee Darrian would be concerned this is all being done on the up and up.  

Looking at you website here I am seeing a C.K. Shipping Inc. at 2815 Raymond Street in Pasadena, TX 77506, 845-853-7802.  This would probably have to match up in the Western Union files.  

Please confirm that the pictures attached of the car are indeed the vehicle and that the vins, etc. match.  Lastly, does the car have Texas plates and registration that will be traveling with the vehicle?

Most Cordially,
Thomas

Ultimately I found a post on this on ripoffreport.com...

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson still doing car donation scam! 1 of the sites she is scamming is on craigs list 7/13/11 Pasadena, Texas

Category: Auto Advertising Services

I received an email on 7/13/2011 from Jennifer Hudson that said, she saw my advert, I was in need of a car, or do I know anyone that is need of a car, or do I want it. It then read that she had a 1999 Acura Integra, mileage: 180,908 Exterior color: Green Interior: Tan leather seats, trans:auromatic, drive train: front wheel drive, Engine: 1.8l I-4pfi options: heating&airconditioning,, factory rims, cd player, cruise control dual air bags,power lock doors,alarm, and sunroof Vin#JH4DB766XXSOO3873, clean title, carfax report. The car is running well, and no mechanical problems. Pictures are attached... Then the next day, I recieved a message from her that said, she was in a sick bed, and had breast cancer and only had 2 months to live, & said the car is at an Auto car shipping company in Pasadena, Tx. She said if I can"t pick it up, email them at autocarshipper@usa.com or call (716) 794-6051 for shipment. I called the number, and got a fast busy signal, It was not a working number.

I continually asked her to call me, or leave me her number....I trusted, and hoped it was real, I wrote her about my personal life, and really believed this woman was dying! I prayed for her, I thought she was some kind of angel, sent from above, and we were blessed to recieve a car in our time of need. I am a single mom of a 3 yr old daughter, I have health issues, and am disabled, so I really counted on this being true. I got online yesterday, and tried to find the auto shipper in Pasadena, Tx. and instead I came upon her name, and the article, about Jennifer Hudson! OMG! I was shocked to see the same exact messages, word for word! She is not aware that I have busted her yet... Today"s message read : The company emailed me about you, and your car will be shipped.

I don"t know what can be done, if anyrhing ... Im hoping since she is in the middle of a scam, maybe something can be done to catch her... Please give me any advice or help, to stop this woman, It is so sad, and wrong, on so many levels, to say she is dying of breat cancer, is just horrible, there are too many people in tbe world, who truly are sick, and dying, to make a mockary of the terminally ill is just plain evil, & so sad! So Beware of a free car donation scam! And always think... If it seems to good to be true, It usually is!

So what laws are the breaking...

First off they are possibly selling troubled cars (i.e. Stollen, did not pass emmission tests, shipping to other states.
Posing as a person dying of cancer Using the Christan-Kingdom handle as the shipping company, probably not registers or certified. Using Western Union wire transfers And a host of other completely unethical tactics to dup consumers and do whatever else they are doing.

Conclusion...

You will have to move fast.  Check the names of these people, etc.  You know best.  I have the emails and I dont have $350 to send them and am stalling... Seeing if they respond.  I think you will have to go to the location if they exist or call this person in.  Your the professionals.  I am just here giving you the information in hopes you can catch them.

Dodgy website

AUTHOR: skamkilla - (United States of America)

One look at that website betrays the fact that this is a scam company.  They can't even spell "Christian" correctly!  It's "Christan" in the URL, "Christain" in that out-of-focus logo and in the text, and "Chritain" elsewhere in the text.

And the website consists of a single PNG image - none of the links work; the image is itself a link.
