J Lo, Home Buyer in California Glory, Br...

Has anyone received an e-mail from Jenny of Ghana?

Asked by J Lo, California Glory, Brentwood, CA Fri Aug 10, 2007

I received a message requesting that I contact : jennifer_ukas@yahoo.co.uk - she has important information for me from the President of the Bank of Ghana... We all know about these types of scams, I just wondered if anyone else was lucky enough to get the e-mail... and were there any takers? Smile!

BTW - her message came from within trulia and she does have a profile: Jenny - Just looking in Ghana.

Not from Jenny but from a 24 year orphan woman in Nigeria who's father died on New Years Eve while going to church.

No word from Jenny, or any other Trulia members promising me finders fees or lottery winnings. Those emails find my way to my inbox, just not via Trulia. Knock on wood, not as of yet via Trulia!

these are scammers. Beware! I even had a person email me several times. I even emailed them MLS listings as a courtesy. They came the issue of me writing a contract to purchase using my name and he would "wire funds" for the deposit if I gave him all my bank info..... They had me strung along, but he kept calling my cell phone from overseas, and I just didn't answer his calls anymore. Another agent in my area had all the same emails from him. So just beware!

Yes, I received a few from Trulia already. All the wealthy guys, wish I have that inheritance, or dirty money, or whatever! Yes, just kidding also...

They are in my garbage pile. Sorry.
