— room rental scam in chicago


I was in contact with someone named anaya kumar from a room ad in sulekha. The person reached out and told me they were at their sister's wedding and we can make the deal via email and she will mail me the keys etc.
Something didn't feel right and i researched more on consumer complaints and found the same exact issue / scam from a few months ago.

I am attaching the screenshot of the sulekha ad, email communication with me as well as the previous complaint.

Please take immediate action and proactively prevent scammers like this taking advantage o[censored]nsuspecting renters.

Feel free to reach out to me via email or phone for any additional information.
