Home/Room Rental Scam

Thanks for your response, let me introduce myself.. I'm Amelia, 27 year single nonsmoker lady coming to Singapore. I work as chef on cruise ship at the moment and I have limited time to surf the internet and phone call is also strictly limited due to the nature of my job, but I will still find a chance to call you.

However, I will like to know the total cost covering my first three months’ rent together with deposit so I could plan my budget. I will also like you to get back to me with some more picture and your postal code address for me to forward it to my mover to calculate the total cost of moving my stuff to Singapore. I had attached picture of myself for you to know me and I will be waiting to read back from you soon.

I'll like to move in on the 15th of December, I'm Australian. I'll also like you to get back to me with the total cost of securing the place together with deposit. Hope to hear from you soon.

I am a very neat and tidy person that respect humanity and this make it so easy for me to get along with whoever that comes my way in life. I'm Australian but will be coming to Singapore from my last place of employment in Philippines. I'd be arriving on 15th of December and stay for some years in Singapore working. I will be transferring the rent to you through PayPal and if you do not have one kindly set up an account with them on

I would have requested for your bank details but for the safety of you and I with giving bank details online, I prefer going through PayPal. I will be happy to secure the room as soon as you get back to me with the name and email attached to the paypal account.
