Nigerian e-mail scam targets home hunters

BEWARE of this new twist to the Nigerian e-mail scam, warns a Stomp contributor.

In her e-mail message to Stomp, Angelina said that her father had been searching bulletin board Craigslist for an apartment.

He came across one that looked like a really good deal "for an apartment at the Icon condominium in Tanjong Pagar".

Angelina reminded those who are house hunting to be careful of such scammers.
