Anyways. Yesterday I replied to a bunch of craigslist ads from people looking for rooms or roommates because I want to recruit a roommate to expand the price range of potential apartments we can look at. I got this e-mail in response and it sounds Nigerian-prince-ish to me. Then again, I do live in an area with lots of foreign refugees, so I don't want to ignore this person just because their English sounds funny.

I must confess am comfortable with the price and I will want to secure the place down before my arrival so i will want you to tell me all about the place,as i can't see it before my arrival but the pictures...I also will want you to know that i have my car that i will be coming over with,and little of my furniture,please let me know if there will be room for them..
With all that i ve said above,I have told you more about me...Let me also know how i can go about securing the place down before my arrival as i will also be busy from next week preparing to come over and let me know if you can take off the ad off the site as i am going to secure the place with a deposit
Feel free to ask me any question and as i ve said,i am looking to move in by the first week in next month,but want to secured it now
Attorney[firstname]@yahoo.com--My uncle email address for reference...
Is "Florina" going to try to send me too much money for the deposit, then ask me to wire the excess funds back? All this shit with orphans and a sick uncle seems a little off. The vagueness ("moving to my state"...?), the fact that she is replying as if I'd e-mailed her with a room ready to rent... URRGH I hate the internets!
