So I'm looking around for possible apartments / houses to rent there... among other places, I try CraigsList. Here's one of the postings I responded to - way too good to be true, and more than we actually need, but hey, can't hurt to shoot an email, right?

But now I am SO pissed... almost immediately, I received a reply:
ya i got some pics they're on my profile .. well i'm 5'7, long brunette hair, tight body and good sense of humor .. yaaa perfect :-) so tell me a little sumthin about you
ps: there's one little important thing i didnt mention in my ad .. umm hit me back and i'll tell you :-)
My Homepage <--- this was a link to a cliqmeet site
"Some people come into our lives, leave footprints in our hearts, and we are never ever the same."
take a closer look at the first line of the ad:
- working professional
- service your needs
... ummmm... okay, I was wondering about some choice of words, now I know....
I've already forwarded the reply to firstname.lastname@example.org. I also pointed them to another similar posting (same words, different image) that is most probably another false post.
Let's hope the other two postings I responded to are genuine!
And in the meantime, I'll look at other more legitimate sites.
