Anybody heard of her? She ran an ad on Craigslist for a $600/month apartment in Estate Cane Bay. From her description and photos it sounds more like a $1200/month place. Probably a scam but thought I'd check here first.

OK, I saw that one, but since it didn't have pictures, I thought that wan't it. That may be a weekly rate. What has your contact been? Are you on island so you can check it out for yourself?

Here's an email sent by her. Where is this address located?

Thank you for your interest in my apartment. Maybe I have a shot time to write this but I will try to give you a complete detail of the apartment. We were trying to open a recording studio in St. Croix at the time I secured this apartment. I was really afraid to give the apartment out to a destructive person. We are trying to establish a new office in Lagos Nig now so my apartment will be open for 2 years 7 months starting now as I am away.

The address is - 112 C Estate Cane Bay, Kingshill, St. Croix, USVI 00851.

The utility bills are included in the monthly rent of $600, they are the wireless Internet, Satellite Cable TV, Electricity, Heating. The washer and dryer are right inside the apartment, the AC is three horse-powers. If you are staying for up to 1 year an upfront 2-month rent will be paid covering the first 2 month that you will rent the apartment. And if you are staying for bellow 5 months 1-month rent will be paid for the first 1 month you will occupy the apartment.

The apartment has charming on-sight beams and finely selected furnishings, this 75sq.mt apartment offers a refined ambience with a true charm. The front door opens up directly into the day area, welcoming guests into a spacious living room with large windows and furnished with double sofa bed, a flat screen TV, and a rectangular glass-top dining table which extends into a round table to comfortable sit up to 6 dinner guests. A leather screen hides the opening to the niche where the modern and fully equipped separate kitchen is, complete with all necessities including a dishwasher and a combo micro-oven.

The sleeping area offers a bright and spacious double bedroom furnished with a charming chest of drawers by a small leather armchair matching the leather bed frame. Two doors in the room hide two further areas: the walk-in closet, large and well lit and complete with a washer-dryer; and the en-suite bathroom, fitted with a large stall shower, washbasin, bidet and toilet. The apartment key is right here with me. I already said as much as I can right now and would need to know if you are fine with my total rent.

I like to know more about you and the kind of person you are, I like to know your present location, I would like to know if you are a student or if you work then what is your occupation. If you do business then what kind of business do you deal on? You can also call me on my phone at any time of the day, I will be glad if you try.

Thanks,
Lucy Carl

Google country code 234...

Also, something a little fishy about the "heating" being included.

#112 C Estate Cane Bay is The Waves at Cane Bay.

Nice scams! a/c units aren''t measured in HP either! On these islands it is best to stay in a guest house first while searching for an apartment. Do not get roped in to something that sounds nice.

Not a a/c guy, but a 3 hp compressor is what 80,000 BTU of air conditioning(could be wrong here).
What I`m saying is, a 3 HP compressor is a huge air conditioner for what, 800 sq.ft.

Ah, where`s the a/c guy here?

A/C units are measured in BTUs and Tons when there are large. Never heard one refereed to in HP, that's all.

Ronnie,

Here in the USVI where we must purchase power from WAPA, A/C is always measured in TONS(of $$$$).

What i`m asking, is what would a 3 HP compressor cool, how many sq. ft.?
Any A/C guys want to answer?
