Happy 2013!

Hello readers, apologies for not updating sooner in 2013. I've been busy with the holidays and what not. I've had several encouraging comments telling me that this blog helped to stop some readers from getting scammed so I will make it a point to update more regularly. There seems to be one common denominator for the readers who almost got scammed: they had a funny feeling/something felt off and they went with their gut and just googled it to end up at this blog. Life pro tip: when in doubt, GOOGLE!

So here's my latest list of scammers:

"Wang Wuyin" - wangwuyin@gmail.com -AND- sadowskim3@gmail.com -AND- chelceamary@gmail.com -AND- markanna23@gmail.com -AND- rabiahmahmood@gmail.com

  4. liz.dupaw01@gmail.com emailed me just after kmuttey96@gmail although I dont see this email on your list I googled it and it appears on another blog as a scam "Hello i wanted to know if item still for sale?"

  5. I never reply to any email that is not specific. Most of the scammer I get copy my headline which is stupid but alot of them will ask if I still have the item or they are interested in my item without saying what it is. If someone is interested they would say more than (I am interested in your item). Here is a few.
    "Wroe Buza" <cumbath47@hotmail.com
    Stradling Milush" <lewellingado79@hotmail.com
    luismacalpine@sbcglobal.net
    "Espino Vankoten" <fabyszx79@hotmail.com
    "Rojero Nampel" <prestagpc95@hotmail.com
    "Henderson Verdejo" <wandj996@hotmail.com

  7. Email from: countryson​glove@sbcgl​obal.net
    Subject: 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4‏

    Do you still have it for sale? What is your asking price for it?.....


    Diane

    I clicked reply and the email address it was sending back to was: "Diane Newton"

    I sent her an email saying yes and this was her response:
    Thanks for the prompt response, i am making use of a shipping company to have this picked up from your contact address...i need some pictures, am satisfied and I fully understood the condition of what i am buying. .i'll like to know the following:

    (1)how long have you had it?
    (2) i will like to know the reason why you are selling it..
    (3)hope i'll enjoy it?

    Note that i'll be responsible for shipping and handling. I have decided to use the program "Buyer and Seller Protection" offered by PayPal Inc. I want only legit transactions! Giving the nature of this transaction please note that PayPal will protect us. If you are not aware of how they work you should know that they will give both of us proper protection. After payment is confirmed to you by PayPal, you'll receive terms and conditions that will protect both of us. Inspections will be done by the moving company as soon as payment is verified.If you wish to proceed selling this to me, please provide me your full name, address (street,city,zip,state), phone number and your PayPal email address so I can initiate the payment. Awaiting your response.

    I then knew it was a scam and googled her address and it took me here...

  9. First email: ?? Actually confused, I'm sure this scammer used a different name or either skipped the first one expecting me not to notice...


    Gabriel Wolfe Craigslist scammer
    Hello,

    Thanks for the response, just to let you know that am okay with the condition and price of the item, am ready for its purchase and am willing to add extra $20 so that you can keep it in my favor. My form of payment will be by sending you a Certified Bank Check via Fedex 1/2days delivery. I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the movers fees will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable movers to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.

    I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible. kindly get back to me with your full name and address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment.

    Regards
    I did send my hubby's phone number and asked him to call to set up the details, in which he responded:


    >Thanks for the swift response. I would have loved to give you a call to discuss further about this item but i don't have access to a phone at the moment,i am presently on work inspection and i use a hearing impaired device so wouldn't be able to call at the moment but I believe we can always talk here. I am okay with the price and condition of this item and i am ready for it purchase. Kindly get back to me with your full name and contact details so that the payment can be issued and mailed out to you asap.

    Thanks

    Then I said, well first we need to know who is coming to get it and when it will be picked up my email was sent@6:30pm central time

    "1:20 AM (13 hours ago)" This is the time at which he made this reply?!!

    Thanks for the response. The pick up will be made once the payment is received and cash.
    ok... buddy...I thought this feels funny..why isn't he talking like a normal person or giving me any details...

    Then this morning I sent an email saying: Ok so just to confirm you will be sending a check for $620.00 and what state and county will the check be coming from?

    Then my hubby told his friend so said it was a scam and my being curious looked it up on the web.. ending up here
    I also want to add, I felt suspicious when I got the first email and tried to google the name and email of this Gabriel Wolfe. He emailed me first to my Craigslist email, and second to my gmail account. I couldn't figure out how all of a sudden there was a picture of a "Large" man next to his email ( and found him in Google+ but with no info showing except for 2 people in his circles also with no info showing.
    So far have not recieved an email back but I do now want to either forward this to a scam investigating co or email him the address to our police department lol
    Thanks for being here hope this helps someone!!

  15. I can add 2 more scammers. One who goes by the name "annah choi" emailed:

    "What is the condition? Your PayPal Email ID to effect the payment

    --
    Hello,i wanted to know if the list on craigslist is still up for sale?"

    And another scammer who goes by Anna Costigan emailed:

    "Just read your ad and decide to buy if not sold yet.Please respond with your e-mail address.

    Anna"

    To both of these, I replied that I will only deal in person and with cash. Also flagged them as scammers on the emails. Thieves.
