Craigslist Scammers!

So, we have been trying to find a place in Erie...Almost half of the places I inquire about are African western union scams...I usually just send them back a horribly mean message, but this time we thought we would mess with them a little...I really hope they message back!

Their response to my inquiry:


I did get your response concerning the AD I posted on craigslist. The house is still available but presently I'm not around.. I did bid for a portion of petroleum land sometimes ago in West Africa and fortunately I won the  bidding so I have to move quickly down to Africa to have my company set up because I will still have to rebid for it in the next 10 years. I came over here with my wife, we both bought the house when we got married. As soon as we settle down here I had a thought of selling the house so I have to look for an agent, after getting one, we got a deal but later my wife advised against that. She said we may not be able to win the bidding next  time, in other to keep our head when we return that we have to keep the house. I reasoned with her and accepted her advise. So I contacted the agent back and requested for my keys and documents. Later we decided to  have the house rent out, we would have give the same agent this job also but the truth of the matter is that the agent would want to handle it professionally and the occupant may not be able to reason along with him later. If you notice, you will discovered that the price we are offering is far below standard price, this is enough for you to know that we are not after the rental fee but the  absolute care for the property. I know there is no  way I can be sure that you are the right person to live in the house because we won't be able to see physical before sending you the keys and the documents to occupy the space. But I just had a  feeling that anyone who knows what it takes to put the kind of structure down should know that maintaining a building is mandatory, so if you belief you can take good care of the house and handle it like yours then I will be more than happy to let you rent the house.

Please if you are ready now to occupy the house kindly provide the information below for record purpose

Our response this time:

Well initially we were looking in Endor, but there might be too many Ewoks there, do you think so?? My name is Leia, and my husband Han and I were thinking of moving to Erie instead..he races millenium falcons, he is in this years kessle run (hoping to finish in under 12 par seconds!!!!!)
We spent time with my brother Luke while he was training in Degobah with Erie like Degobah? Or more like Hoth?
Anyway we are very interested and would like to move this process along as fast as possible!

May the force be with you!

Our response:

Hello Nancy! Here is my application! I tried to be as thorough as possible! My husband Han and I are really looking forward to the move! ALL he talks about is this kessle run up there! Fingers crossed!!!!
