scammers

I'm just going to make this post a list of scammers so that I don't have to make a new post all the time.

Just keep in mind that every one of these people has asked me to ship internationally, they are not located locally, and only want to use PayPal.




letter from saxxyfelas50@gmail.com : - SCAM!!!
Good to hear back from you I'm in San Diego right now but I'll be leaving for London for a soccer coaching job in a 2days time.I want to buy this item for my son that is studying photography at a university in africa. .I'll have to add $120 for you to send the item to him as soon as possible through the USPS express mail international(ems)..I'll be paying you through paypal as soon as you make your decision i will pay you $750 for the item and shipments fee; it's secure and protects two parties in a transaction. Get back with the following information so that your payment will be delivered as soon as possible.Full Name:Full Contact Address:Tel Number:All this information should be provided correctly please to avoid wrong payment. I will forward my son's residential address to you for shipping as soon as the payment reaches you. I will be very grateful to hear from you soon.Best Regard

Hello I got your mail, I agreed with the fixed price, I am willing to offer you extra $50 for you to take the advert downso that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the item. Concerning payment, i will issue out a Personal checkor a Cashier Check. I have a liable shipping company who'd be responsible to come pick up the item at your place. Once you cash the check and get the money, the shipping company will come to your address to pick it up. If the condition is okay by you, please get back to me with the details as it will appear on the check, your full name, address, city/location, phone number and zipcode.Will be expecting your reply.

  10. i actually gave this stupid scammer my paypal email address... I'm going to notify paypal and send them the dialogue.

    Thanks a lot for posting this.

  11. This particular scammer, kayclef2000@gmail.com, sent me the address that i was supposed to send my item to (a 1/2 carat diamond). I googled the name and address and came up with a (very) legit looking business! (A cleaning company). The address is:

    Tom Athey,
    18919 w hickory st
    Mundelein, IL. 60060
    USA

    At first I thought "oh, maybe he doesn't want it going to his house because of a wife?? and the gift may not be FOR a wife??" and then dialogue continued and I googled the email address, and got this site. THANKS AGAIN!

I won't retype the dialogue as it is exactly the same, only instead of WASHINGTON it reads CALIFORNIA....thanks for the site guys!

  16. Same here, same thing exactly from jmsgril@gmail.com in California. Tried to scam me out of $5,800 pendant. Wanted my Paypal email so they could put the money in my account. I insisted on issuing THEM an invoice that they could then pay and only after I was assured the money was there I would send the item. Suddenly they were no longer interested. Relentless bastards.

  38. $200 is pretty fair. I'm purchasing it for my fiancee and it needs to be sent because I just finished advanced individual training and am waiting for deployment.. Was wondering if i could use your help with the shipping, That would bring the grand total to $278 and send me your Name & Address for money order payment or request a paypal invoice for the total amount to allexxwarrenn@hotmail.com for payment. Keep me updated once request is sent.

    Sent from my iPhone
    from allexxwarrenn@hotmail.com

    along with another email, for sending it to nigeria

    $281 has been sent using walmart and I got a confirmation email from walmart which states that debit was successful on my side. Below is my fiancee's shipping address.

    Name - Hassan Onyiola.
    Address - #12 College Avenue, Achara Lay-Out.
    City - Enugu,
    State - Enugu State
    Zipcode - 23442,
    Country - Nigeria.

    Do get the package in the mail today through United State Postal Service only (Express Mail) and keep me posted after shipment. Is nice doing business with you and I hope she will like it.

    Note: The actual cost of the item should be reduced (on the customs form) to $110 USD, Reason being that i don't want my fiancee to know the real cost of item and avoid insuring large custom duty fee.
    I would just like to add that walmart email which confirms payment was successful went into my spam, So i reckon you also check your spam if you don't receive any notification from them (walmart) shortly.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I then received TWO confirmation emails from "Wal*Mart MoneyGram" which both looked to be very fishy, so i googled his email and it brought be to this site, thanks for saving me from feeling and looking like an idiot!

  40. Jenifer Lynn has a new/another email. Also her name changed to Jenny Lynn. Got an identical email from both of her emails within ten minutes. Wondering why I even bother posting jewelry in CL cause the only emails I get are scams so far.

  43. Another one - Alexander Rodriguez. The first inquiry came from realtinz3@gmail.com (I didn't observe that time that when hovered over this email address, the name reads Casale Greg) which asked me if I had the receipt to the item I was selling. I replied to it with a "Yes", the next email came from alexanderodriiguez@outlook.com (note that he offers $85 extra for shipping) -

    "I just finished advanced individual training and am waiting for deployment.. I would appreciate if you can handle the shipment and that would bring the grand total to $885. Send me your Name & Address for money order payment or request a paypal invoice for the total amount to alexanderodriguz@outlook.com for payment. Keep me updated once request is sent."

  51. I thought there was something fishy about Mr. Crowley so I googled his name and found this page. Same story as above, wanted to purchase my camera for sale on Craigslist. Also provided his phone number when I started getting suspicious.

    I've reported him to Paypal as well as outlook.com. There is a special place in hell for people who make false claims to be involved with the armed services. I hope he gets what's coming to him.

  52. Just had the same thing happen to a friend, I told her to list it on EBay because they have tools in place to prevent scams.

    $450 is reasonable, I just finished AIT (Advanced Individual Training), But I'm waiting for deployment. I would appreciate if you can handle the shipment once you confirm payment and that brings the total to $536. You can request money with my email (richmcrowley@live.com) for a PayPal payment. Keep me updated once request is sent.

  54. I also am selling a camera on Craigslist. I received one email sent via CL from "Richardson Crowley" and then, after I replied several days later, an email from "Richard McCrowley." I thought that looked fishy so I looked in junkmail. Maybe he forgot the name he had used? Since he claimed to have just graduated AIT I thought about asking which school and where (how many con men would know the location of a particular Military-Occupational-Specialty school?). Then I was going to ask where he was being deployed to (even fewer people would know the designation and location of a unit; e.g., XXXth battalion Miliary Police, etc.).
