  Alexandrea Delauren aka Alexandrea Stewart aka Vivian Smith
In the fall of 2004, 2 years worth of posts regarding Andrea Delauren, then known as "Alexandrea Stewart", and her scam companies were removed by craigslist staff -- either sent to the "isle of misfit threads" or deleted altogether -- in response to legal threats made against them by this con-artist. She wanted to make sure her future victims would remain unaware of her past crimes. She also wanted to prevent her victims from contacting each other and threatened to sue us too. Her aggressive intimidation was effective at the time and only a few victims managed to organize.

Individually we filed formal complaints with the NYS Department of State Division of Licenses, the BBB, the FTC and the New York Police Department. Together we contacted the media and the New York Post wrote about it. All of this is documented in these posts which is why I felt it was so important to make sure they survived.

For a few weeks after their removal from the housing and feedback forums, some were still searchable on craigslist, so I did my best to copy as many as I could to preserve them. I recovered more than 5000 posts from over 1700 threads where she was referenced. Still, there were quite a few that had been deleted before I could save them but I think you can get a good idea of what went on by what's presented here.

I regret that at that time, her aliases were not known to us and we hadn't yet found out about her prior felonies.
If Craig had the legal proof we have now, these posts would still be up on craigslist today. We knew she was a criminal by her actions, but now we've got the records to prove it.

nyc You need to take your medication Allie! ß < MrsCG > 2004-09-29 17:02:59

nyc No, Allie isn't English, is she? < this_woman_was_english > 2004-09-27 14:19:22
and her name was Karen or Carol or something along those lines. I was told she showed apartment/s and took lots of deposits and then went back to england with all the money. Her boss had to pay everyone back. That's what i heard

nyc You should know Allie... ß < coe-group > 2004-09-27 12:12:02

nyc Beware - Allie is advertising in owner < more_scams > 2004-08-04 20:34:53
Craig has blocked her ads and now she is advertising anonymously in the owner ads. If you answer one do not pay for so called "access" to apartments. It's a scam. This is one of her ads that was flagged: $1425 / 2br - Great Share or Family Apartment in Village Reply to: Date: 2004-08-03, 6:41PM EDT Large two bedroom is a perfect share or family apartment. Two equal sized bedrooms, living/dinning area and small kitchen. Close to NYU. pets okay. Must have good credit or a guarantor. Students okay. Email me for access and picture links. cats are OK - purrr dogs are OK - wooof this is in or around 14th Street it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests Fee Disclosure: $79.95 Listed By: Joanne She will probably make them more anonymous tomorrow, so watch out.

nyc As if anyone's going to tell YOU < HaveAJobAndHobby > 2004-06-19 16:48:45
That would just mean more scam ads from you, Allie. And the more steps it takes YOU to have to post, the better.

nyc I think the same person is trolling Mrs CG. < ransom_beet > 2004-06-03 13:48:55
It may not just be Allie, but someone who worked with her.

nyc Oh shut up Allie, you have your t*ts < in-a-ringer-luv-because > 2004-05-05 11:11:03
you can't advertise. Leave WB alone you strumpet.

nyc I got a great no fee loft for 1500 < TripleJ > 2004-05-01 11:18:43
from allie mac. She was so sweet. She took the time out of her busy day to walk me around soho until I found the perfect loft. Then she took me to Le Bernadine for dinner and picked up the tab. She also apologized and gave me back the money that I gave her for that stupid list. I'm going to propose tomorrow.

nyc Ok, but only if you promise < ______________________ > 2004-05-01 10:59:19
to bill me monthly for services that I don't recieve. You are the bomb Allie.

nyc I love you Allie Mac < ___________________ > 2004-05-01 10:28:09
you are the type of woman I need in my life, please email me. A lifetime of abuse is what I'm looking for.

nyc Well, then PayPal should at least ban Allie < ------------------------ > 2004-04-27 13:43:31
They should know that major credit complanies are after her. She is a criminal. I think I won't use PayPal myself after hearing this.

nyc < they-investigate-fraud > 2004-04-27 11:21:52
Send all the info. They need to cut Allie off from using their service.

V.A. Macian aka Alexandrea/Andrea Delauren would like the voices of her craigslist scam victims to disappear. She stole our money but she will not steal our right to free speech.

Location: NYC

In 2003, I was looking for an apartment in NYC. Unfortunately I answered an ad placed by a convicted criminal on craigslist. She stole a lot of money from a lot of people incuding myself. I started this blog to warn others after the criminal justice system failed to make her pay for her crimes. She has given me no reason to believe she will ever stop conning unless she is caught. I hope that by sharing this information I can help bring her to justice or at least save a few others from becoming victimized along the way.
