Thomas Hardy / thomas hardy rental scam
I was emailed by a "Thomas Hardy" on june 5 2017 at 4:59 pm after i posted a kijiji ad looking for an apartment i. Almonte ontario. He claimed he was an oncologist and that he graduated from St.Georges University of London. In the uk. He sent pictures of the unit. Didnt tell us the address asked us to write a kijiji ad for his wifes other rental in ottawa. We did reverse searches and found the pics were stolen from air bnb and another vacation tental site for condos in toronto. Of course we knew it was too good to be true for $750 a month. We found out thomas hardy was a novelist that wrote romanticism and poetry. He died in 1928 or something. The scammers email is firstname.lastname@example.org. i emailed to confront him with screenshots of what i found. No communication now. His phone number that he gave me is [protected] a toronto area code.
