This guy is a real piece of work, he coursed me into a deal to sublet his place on the river in nyc. He conned me into sending him a deposit before i got to town to secure the place. When i got there he failed to meet me at the building, he didnt return my calls and completely f d me over. Since i couldnt prove that i sublet from him the cops couldnt do anything, there was no paper trail, because he conned me into sending a 3000 cashiers check. Hes a fraudster half a*s desperate con artist! Dont be the his next victim people.
This past weekend I was alerted to a type of online scam targeting college students in the housing market with what appear to be fake requests to rent or sublet off campus apartments. The number used was 9179033268, the same number of zadi fadi sebastion. It appears that a scammer informs the subletting student that they are planning to move from another country (RED FLAG 1), in this case South Africa, to the school that the student is currently attending and will be in need of housing. If the student responds with further information regarding the rental, they are likely to begin receiving a series of emails from the scammer in which they are told a very elaborate story of how the scammer will need to fly in to view the rental apartment before agreeing to the contract but because of family finance struggles this will be hard to accomplish (RED FLAG 2). The scammer then goes on to say that he/she will send the student a check to cover rent plus enough money for the student to send back via a wiring service to cover travel expenses so the prospective renter can come view the apartment (RED FLAG 3). This is usually where the scammer gets screwed overif youre smart. If youre not and you agree to this transaction, youre about to lose a lot of money. This guy has been apparently pulling this scam for years. He needs to be stoped
