This is an answer I recieved by Mr. Lawson Travis or whatever his name is, seem legit for french lessons I was offering on Craigslist, then once everything was okay and that he got my address and phone number, he sends me this (while his first email was in good english). His 'new' email is: [email protected] "Hello,
Thanks for the information provided to me...Am ok with you and i will instruct my client to issue out the payment to you asap and for confirmation, More so i want to tell you that the Payment will come to you in excess payment which is over payment which included the nanny fees on the check am sending to you, because the nanny will need the rest money to relocate to your location with my Son for the tutor lesson....Pls as a good teacher i will want you to help me to handle this payment with care and with the instruction i gave to you when you receive the check....When the tutor start in two week time if you take good care of my Son i will compensate you for another extra amount for the tutor lesson of Son .....As soon as you receive the payment you will deduct your own money for the tutor lesson of my Son for the 1 month and you will have the rest money send to the nanny and the nanny information to send the rest money will email to you as soon as you receive the check.. i will instruct my client to issue out the payment to you asap.I will be happy if you can handle this for me Thanks and God Bless You Mr Lawson Travis" Needless to say I got mad. So there you go people -- some rotten souls are out there. If I do get a check it goes strait to the Police or Fraud Control.

Lawson Travis Check Fraud, Internet, Scam Artist, Con Man - Do not respond to this man. He uses the following email address: [email protected] In addition to responding to ads for tutors in all sorts of areas (French, piano lessons, juggling lessons, etc.), he also has "job openings" for a caregiver for his sister listed in multiple states. Just how many sisters does this man have??? Total fake.

Mr. Travis's first email to me consisted of the same exact message reported by others on the web:

Hello
>
> I just want to know if the tutor lesson still available for my son for
> a month he is 13 years old, I want you to calculate the cost of 2 hour per
> day for two days in week for the whole a Month and email me the total
> cost..Hope to read back from you asap..
>
>
> Thanks
>
> Lawson Travis

His second email to me:

Mr Lawson Travis

(Yeah, that's not fishy at all...) His next step is to tell you that the check will be over the required amount, and would you please send it on to [fill in the blank]. Do not fall for it. Do not deal with this man (or woman?). Do not give him any of your personal information.

I have also had am email from him listed as [email protected]

Note that if you have an email sent to you through Craigslist, you can go to the bottom of the email and click "If this email is a scam or spam please flag it now" (there's a link after that).

Had item listed for sale on Craigslist. Was asked by Lawson Travis and a Mr. Neyo if item was still available: This is the email I received back from Lawson Travis (used two emails in contacting me: [email protected] and [email protected] & Mr. Neyo used this email: [email protected])

Thanks you for the response according to the description, am okay with
the price and the condition pasted on cl. I am ready to make instant
purchase. My mode of payment would be in CERTIFIED CHECK and i will
arrange for a local pick up as soon as you get the check, because that
is the only convenient means for me and due to my work frame i can not
be able to get there and i promise everything will go smoothly. I
really wish to be there to check out the item but i don't have chance
cause am very busy man (Us Marine).Concerning the pick up, i will
arrange for it after you receive the payment and it clears... Pls get
back to me with below info so that i can proceed with the payment
immediately if you are selling to me.

Name:
Address: Not P.O. BOX..
City:
State:
Postal Code:
Phone Number: That i can send text message

And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be overnight to you
and i will let you know when its mailed out.Thanks and i hope we
handle this in good faith while waiting to hear from you. i will add
an additional $50 so that you can hold it for me till the check reach
you.
