BEWARE!!!!! Scammers on this site!!!

Recommended Posts

Im tryin to sell a bike for $3500. I recieved a money order for $7000 dollars from a guy in the UK. His English/Grammer is bad and is vague in his emails. Basically asked me to deposit the money order and send the shipping company the other $3500. I have contacted the FBI and they pretty much confirmed that it is a typical scam. The guys user name is kunlebako. The bank listed on the money order doesnt seem to exist.....I cant find it anyways. On top of the whole thing why would anyone pay 7g's for a used bike. Here is the guys email......mac_don_will@yahoo.com Everyone Be aware of this kind of stuff.

This not only a scam, it's an old scam.

Typical: You are offered a sale for your bike, but the buyer can for some arcane reason only send you twice what you want for it, and furthermore needs you to ship it to him in a faraway country. Once you send him the bike, you write him a check for the difference between what you wanted, plus your shipping costs, and what he originally sent, which usually turns out to be about $3000-6000.

When the check he sent turns out to be a fraud, you find yourself out your bike and the cash, and since the crooks are in Nigeria (a favorite place of origin for this one), no recourse, or to summarize: You're Screwed.

If it sounds to good to be true, it almost always is.

dude the same thing happened to me, i was selling my bike for 2000, and he offered 6000, so i figured, to good to be true,--- sent emails that were in broken english, said he was from nigeria-- anyway, he sent me a check and i put it in the bank, but it didnt clear, told him to send a nother and it still didnt clear...so finaly the back sends the check back saying its counterfeit and my dad calls the cops---they said this thing happens all the time, which it does apparently.. after i told the guy i dont wanna do buisness with him, he told me he was in the mob and threated to kill me, so naturally my mom finds out and calls the cops again...good news-- i got to miss a day of school!

On the right is a "Report" button. Please click it when you suspect a scammer. The moderators will get right on the case.

The IP address if from Amsterdam. His profile says, "Texas". Good-bye.

I called the FBI and they said this kind of thing happens all the time. I also took the check to the bank and they thought it looked suspicious. Im gonna sign him up for a bunch of spam mail. :applause:

I think some news crew should advertise a car to sell and take the bait when the scammer emails. The fun part would be to have the car shipped with hidden microphones and cameras and then see who is on the other end and what they do. Or just put a camera man in a crate and when they open it, yell "suprise Umbookoo!" The camera man would probably be dead 10 seconds after that.

lol,

I have seen it too it is kind of normal when you sell stuff. Who is still falling for this. It is on Ebay, Craigslist, TT, the Traders everywhere. I feel bad for the first group of people.

I'm looking at a bogus check for $4200 right now, the guy sent it to me for a $700 item and wanted the change. I keep it under the glass on my desk as a reminder, the FBI said to ignore them and not correspond.

Funny IM conversation!

I've seen this scam described on the internet now for several years. Amazing that it's still in play.
