The issue in GetHuman3791953's own words
Good afternoon, I need you to ban someone that tried to scam me out of ****.**. I placed an ad on your site and Andrea Garcia responded she wanted the room that I was renting. She sent me about * emails and two texts telling me I would be receiving a check from her father both for the room and also a car that she was purchasing. I received the check via UPS this morning in the amount of ****.** I took this official looking check to my bank and talked to the bank officer and told them what took place till now, she told me that the check was fraudulent so she made a copy of it for me so I could notify the police. I did that and the report number is ****-*******, This con artist is praying on people that are trying to rent rooms, apartments or anything of value to them. I have copies of the UPS envelope that arrived and of the check they tried to pass to me. The envelope claimed it was from Shoe Sensation no phone number, address shoe sensation *** Kentucky Home Square Bardstown KY *****. I went to my bank and talked to the officer of the bank and she told me the check is a fraud. She made a copy of the check and she was going to turn it over to the fraud department of her bank. She then told me to contact the authorities about what had happen and I did just that. They want me to also let the FBI know of what had happen and told me not to have any further contact with this Con Artist. If you want proof I have it. Please tell me if there is more information you need. I will not be using your site because of the scammers that are throughout your site, It hurts me deeply that I can't even trust what use to be a reputable idea of a site.
