Jeffrey Lambert & Gail Marie Vaughn
I contacted Jeffrey Lambert on January 15, 2013 in response to an ad on craigslist for a vacation rental in downtown San Diego. Jeffrey and I communicated via e-mail about this rental that I was interested in securing for the week of April 24-May 1, 2013. Jeffrey identified himself as a realtor and the name of his company, J.L Rental Enterprises. Jeffrey typed up a contract for myself as I secured the rental using cash. Both he and I signed the contract electronically. The money that I ended up paying was the total for the week plus $300 for a security deposit that was to be refunded at the end of the week. Jeffrey asked that I deposit cash into the owner's bank account. The name I got from him was Gail Marie Vaughn and her bank account was through Chase bank. Her account number: 478780096 and the routing number: 322271627. My last communication with Jeffrey was on Feb. 8, 2013 once I received a copy of my contract. Before my arrival in San Diego, I e-mailed Jeff on April 21, 2013 to check in and schedule a time on April 24th to meet at the condo to pick up the keys. Fast forward to April 24th, I have had no communication with Jeff. My friend and I arrived at the above address, which was listed on the craigslist listing to find that there is another owner and renter in the condo. I contacted the property management of the condo to confirm that this was indeed a scam on craigslist. I am unsure if there is truly a Jeffrey Lambert or a Gail Marie Vaughn. Although, the bank account is linked to a Gail Marie Vaughn. I know for sure the address provided above is not a legitimate rental through either name listed on this complaint.
