I want to make this very clear up front. Craigslist.com is not to blame. This was our own stupidity!!
We have rented from others over Craigslist before and never had a problem. This time we were not so lucky.
We put an ad on Craigslist saying we were looking for a rental home in Kitty Hawk, NC . This was reported to the Kitty Hawk Police Department.
Here is the email we received from firstname.lastname@example.org
There have been many more emails back and forth with Lacey. She is a compulsive liar
My Hubs did a lot of searching and we found out that Lacey Roop is very bad news. In our seach we found she was being brought up on charges on 2/03/13 for issuing a bad check.
Then we found there was a Jury Trial for June 3, 2013 but I think that was cancelled.
We found her Mother, Father, and Brother.
Mother Li--a J
They moved from
--- Howard Roop Lane
Patrick Springs, Virginia
12 Lupfer Ave
Whitefish, Mt 59937
I think the mother is back living on Howard Roop Lane
Lacey told my Husband that her father died (If we can believe that), I think around April. If this is true, she probably helped him into his grave by being such a piece of scum. He most likely died wondering how he could of have spawned someone like this.
For months now, Lacey has told us she is going to make this right... we have all the emails. She tells us she has mailed us a check, yet we never receive it. I can't tell you how many times she has supposedly mailed us a check.
Lacey Roop Scams or Attempted Scams
The above link is just like what she did to us. This girl is really scamming a lot of people
Here is one my Daughter found that sounds just like what she did to us.
Michael Collier – 508 Grinnell Street, Key West, FL
Active Rain also has her email listed here as a scammer http://activerain.com/blogsview/3708641/avoid-rental-scams-ask-to-meet-agent-or-owner-in-buckhead-atlanta-2-
Although the money we lost will not makes us or break us, it does Piss Us Off Royally. It was quite a lot of money to be honest with you. What the hell were we thinking????
If anyone knows where Lacey Roop is living, or where she works, please get in touch with us.
Any information is greatly appreciated. We will not reveal our source, we just want our money back.... thats all.
If you have also been scammed by Lacey Roop, get in touch, maybe we can work together on this.
UPDATE: Lacey was jailed in Lincoln County around 6-24-2013 (not sure of that date) and moved to Flathead County for Revocation Of SUSPDEFR SENTENCE on 7-15-2013
