Cops are looking for this man wanted for allegedly scamming two Polish speaking women in a room-for-rent scheme.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a Maspeth man wanted in connection to a grand larceny for allegedly scamming two females in a room-for-rent scheme targeting Polish speaking individuals online last month.

According to cops, the scammer, identified as Karol Krzewski — who also goes by the name Filip — posted advertisements on the Polish website Bazarynka.com offering a room for rent.

Krzewski’s first victim, a Polish female, responded to the ad and met with him at around noon on April 25, law enforcement agents said. The victim agreed to pay an advance for the apartment and allegedly gave Krzewski approximately $1,500. He then promised to get back in touch with her through text message or a phone call, but never did.

Then, on April 26, police added, Krzewski allegedly met with his second victim, a 50-year-old female, who responded to the scammer’s fake ad. The perpetrator allegedly showed his victim the apartment and took her approximately $1,500 in advanced pay, promising to get back to her, but again, he never did.

Krzewski has been described by police as a white male, 26 years old, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 210 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

The 104th Precinct released this wanted poster for Krzewski on their Twitter account.

 

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call Detective Filip Glowa of the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723, or Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200. All calls will be kept confidential.
