I HAD THE VERY SAME 26 YR OLD FROM SPAIN LETTER. SHE ALSO SENT EMAIL VIA EVAN.HEN03@GMAIL.COM

Got the same rambling letter from someone using the initials >S.J< and >S.O.< in response to my room for rent, using several emails to wit:

ffwcscvscsc@gmail.com

orlandowhite1111@gmail.com

also got an email from

t.mula400@gmail.com

and suspect this one as well

ABBYPOE@NETZERO.COM

very annoying why do these scammers even bother. I actually sent the first one a whole page of ip address scams, and they got back to me with the same inane tale. stupid people.

Hi Suzy, Here is a further list of emails associated with the "student abroad, father will pay rent, send name address and phone#" including people who are using names with initials "L.J" and the name of a very popular frozen cake initials "S.L."

Generally it's a short reply like "room still available?" and then when I reply yes, I get the "student" letter. I will continue to post email addresses as I receive and can verify their ill intentions because they send me that ridiculous letter.
