Recommended Posts

I'm trying to sell a couple things on the TT Classified Section & received this email.

I'm just asking if anyone ran into this buyer before??

I guess that I should just ignore it.

Anyway......here is the response I received:

from what i hear thease are always a scam, this person will probly be oversea's and send you too much money, also it being a casier check it will take some time for the bank to precess everything, meanwhile the person will say sorry i sent you too much money, now that you have it could you please send some back, if you fall for it you send the person some money back, being a nice guy and before its too late the bank calls you saying your casier check is no good and you recieved no money, i've never been involved with it, this is just the things i hear from friends.

I say have them send you the check. Deposit it, tell him you are going to wire the money as soon as you get to Argentina as the police are after you for embezzlement and murder. Tell them to be patient as you have heal from the plastic surgery to change your face and fingerprints. Tell them you are also going to include a pair of glass slippers, size one as a gesture of good faith. Offer to sell a bridge you have cheap, but let them know you lost the title to it. Oh yeah, be sure to mention the refund of the overpayment will be for more than the amount due and to please wire the excess money to you.

Its a total scam, its been going around on Craigslist for a few years now, looks like they need fresh targets so they are showing up here in the classified section.

These overseas scams are awesome. (Meaning funny). If the cons would take the time to hire someone that could translate their language into real English, they might have more success. It's funny to read because you can tell that they are REALLY trying to make it sound like what they think an American would consider 'legitimate". You can also just totally tell that this writer actually believes that "asap" is a word.:thumbsup: Classic.

its a scam he will send more money than your asking and say it was a mistake. you will deposit the cashier check. it will clear. you will send him the overpaid balance and a couple days later the bank will tell you the cashier check is a fake and charge you 30 bucks for it. he doesnt care about getting the boots just the money you send him.

Hey beemer,

send him an e-mail and tell him you would like him to pick up the boots "one at a time", that way you can put a boot in his A$$ twice!! :thumbsup:

I am sorry my friend to not go for pick-up, the asap in my truck has been misplaced and borken.

These scams are really becoming a problem . I just sold an item on ebay for 500.00 . The guy sends me a money order from capital One Bank. Everything Looks Good. I take it to my bank and they tell me there will be ten day hold. So i ask if it is definetly good after the hold and she says no . It could bounce a month later. Man , I was pissed ! So what do i do ? I cant wait a month to ship the item . I guess its just not safe to take any money orders or cashiers checks. :thumbsup:

When I get an offer like that that I know is a scam I tell them to go ahead and send the check. I love scamming scammers. They get so mad

Just ignor it... You will never get the money and you will loose your boots if you try to sell to him. Send to Brian to report the scam....

However, it would be cool if you screwed with him and recorded it all and say posted it on you tube and then posted the link... :thumbsup:
