Tis the season to shop

If you're in the mood to shop, chances are, scammers are too.

Here are some new swindlers that contacted me over the Thanksgiving break:

Today's tip: When you go to respond to the initial email, it may automatically reply to a different email address.  This is a great indication that the individual is a scammer.  It doesn't make much sense for a potential buyer to email you from emailaddress1@gmail.com and then have you respond to emailaddress2@gmail.com.  Look for inconsistencies like this to help you from getting de-frauded out of your money or item.

    1. When I was apartment hunting, I came across a few of those scams. It's hard to believe that they didn't have anyone in the same region to show the place without you first sending money for the keys. Think about it- how many people would just give the keys away to their home without even meeting the renter?

  3. This freakin guy:

    jamesron13@gmail.com

    This is what he wrote. I didn't bite...

    -------

    As you can see, paypal protects both buyer and sellers interest.But i
    hope you receive notification for the payment sent from paypal? The
    money hold is a security measure used by paypal to ensure the safety
    of both parties, so until you ship the item and get back
    to paypal with the tracking number details and once paypal verify all
    the tracking number details, paypal will release your money into your
    account. However the money has already been deducted from my paypal
    account as my account has been debited already and my paypal account
    has also been suspended for you till your own account is credited.So
    get the item sent to the address and get back to paypal customer
    care to send the tracking number details and your funds will be released
    into your account while they also release my account as well.So please
    do ship the item via EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL asap .
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Wank George harassing me over text messages.

      Delete
    2. Wank George was contacting me from the number: 719-362-0213.

    3. Wank George is still operating. He's using 323-844-5602 these days. Sent me a PayPal payment notice (fake, of course) to my (fake) email address that I gave him to use. Seriously. You'd think people would stop falling for this and they'd give up eventually, but I guess not. Watch out, everyone! Stay safe.

  20. cooperluke400@gmail.com (also known as asshday11@gmail.com) using the names Charlotte McGeady and Louise Ferguson has been busy. She contacted me at 5 am this morning wanting to pay via Paypal without even seeing the furniture. When I pressed for cash only - and only after she saw the furniture - she continued to email. Gutsy.

  27. Charlotte, Charlotte, Charlotte.....just contacted me too! Paypal, not computer savvy, blah blah blah. Googled the name to see if she is local. Surprise!! Thanks for the blog guys!

    ReplyDelete
  28. this CHARLOTTE MCGEADY is a might busy person. I'm so grateful Craigslist published the comments and complaints on this person. This is TERRIBLE. they tried it on me too. May the fleas of 1000 camels invade their crotch!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I was contacted by Charlotte McGeady today, the text messages were a little scattered and refused to set up the pay pal account she suggested. I had a gut feeling it was a scam and goggled the name to find that it is all a scam.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I received a text on my phone from johnguti02@gmail.com. I am usually suspicious of random texts, I found several google entries for this email.
    The text contains: Where can we meet for inspection of your Craigslist listed item? Mail me at charhil31@googlemail.com
    google/yahoo/bing shows nothing for the charhil search.
